Working is one of those crazy things in this world. While most people would rather not be doing so, most of us have to work to keep ourselves fed and out of the elements. While it would be a lot more pleasant to be able to simpy sit around and collect trust fund checks, there is generally a step between fantasizing about it and living it known as working. You can get to the point where you can work on the beach. However, this still requires some effort.
A lot of people think of working as crucial to maintaining their lifestyle. However, what they fail to think about is that their lifestyle can ultimately define their work. A lot of people see it as the other way around, for reasons only they understand. Work doesn’t have to be toil and grind, or even take up a large portion of one’s day. Working only tends to be a long part of one’s day because most people have been conditioned to think of work as trading their time for an infusion of money.
So long as you think of work that way, you’ll continue to put in tons of hours. So when they look back on their lives and see that most of their time was spent working, they might stop to wonder what the ultimate benefit of it all was. If you want your life to go differently than that, your first step is to decide how long you want to work. How many years of your life, and how many hours of your day do you want to spend on doing things to make money?
