9 to 5 Escapism.
It sounded alright to me at the time.
Not many years later...I began pondering the possibilities of self-employment; being your own boss, owning your time, controlling your income, and complete freedom to do exactly what you love. This sounded even better!
Several weeks ago...I picked up this book. The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferriss. It talks about a thing called, lifestyle design. The book supposedly teaches you how to trade a "long-haul career" for "short work bursts and frequent "mini-retirements", amongst other lessons.
My interest was indeed piqued!
Who doesn't want to work less & enjoy more...life!
The book begins with a brief FAQ, for the doubters.
How'd he know??? LOL
It reads that you don't have to quit your job, be a risk-taker, be a single 20-something, have a desire to travel, be born rich, nor be an Ivy League graduate.
The book goes on to mention the "Deferrers"...those who save it all for the end (i.e., retirement) only to find that life has passed them by; and the "New Rich".
The "New Rich" are those who abandon the deferred-life plan and create luxury lifestyles in the present, using time & mobility.
I'm on chapter 3.
I'm a dreamer, but I'm a skeptical dreamer...
Lifestyle design...have you heard of it?
Please share your thoughts with me. I'm interested!
