Key questions, in life, to ask oneself: 1) Would you continue to do the same line of work, if you suddenly became independently very wealthy? Because you love the work so much, it enriches your life such that you'd do it even if you no longer needed the income from it? 2) Would you be with the same partner, if you became independently very wealthy, and had no concern for changes to your financial situation, should you leave that relationship? If you can answer yes to those two questions, you're a very fortunate person! If you answer "no" to either... hopefully you have the time and wherewithal to make some changes? ========== One's working life consumes nearly all of one's most productive/energetic hours in life. Sad to spend such a huge portion of one's only life on earth doing work that isn't true to one's soul and passion. When I was a fairly young man, I was fortunate to be presented with these two questions and heed my answers.
