As I’ve been reading my notes from the 4 hour workweek book, I found this interesting note: Inactivity is not the goal. Doing what excites you is. This reminded me of the multiple conversations I had with people wanting to start their own business to “be able to work whenever they want”.
My next question is always: what will you do with the free time? Do you have something planned? I rarely get an answer for this. Or some generic answers like: “I want to travel”, “I want to pursue painting full-time”…
Sure, we all want to travel and pursue our hobbies full-time, but what’s the goal here? How can you track your progress in life? Waking up every day somewhere isn’t an answer. There is more to that.
I believe having a lot of free, unstructured time, is bad. We should all spend time thinking about this question: If money wasn’t a problem, how will you spend your days?
