Money has very little to do with life these days. People make the decision to work their lives away when there are more resources than ever. Once you learn to live on less, working less is a very good option.
Your life is worth more than just money. While I love money as much (probably more) than the next guy, you need to understand how valuable your time is. Your time is a resource that you can never get back. When you’re young enough to enjoy life, live it.
People fall in love with the game of earning more and more stuff but all of it doesn’t even matter. It just leads to a never ending cycle of more work.
When you get out of the habit of working, you start to get to focus on the more important things.
One of your best options is taking time off hourly work to earn passive income. Once you get passive income coming in you’re able to make more money while doing nothing. It’s not something you can always count on but a salary isn’t either.
Learn when to work for money (survival), when to work for scalable money (when it’s fun), and when to just enjoy what you have (the rest of the time.)
