“Work then retire” is the booby-prize.

What’s the alternative?

Let’s take a look:

#1 Work = sacrificing the now for an imaginary future. That’s how we often use the term ‘work’, and that’s the trade it represents in that context.

#2 Retirement = living in the now, tomorrow takes care of itself. The work is done, provisions have been made, and so one ceases to produce.

#3 Doing work you love = see #2. This needs a word to describe it. I’m not sure what it is if there is one. But creating from this place creates the output, engagement and stamina needed to provide for today and tomorrow with no sacrifice needed.

Are you doing the ‘new work’?

Or just the old kind?
