You have to work. At least in some fashion. Unless you are independently wealthy, in which case go back to your infinity pool and relax.
As for the rest of us, we have all had a day where we don't want to wake up, don’t want to face the day, and especially don’t want to go to work.
But what if you’re just, like, done…?
Well, this is a growing sentiment as countries worldwide are seeing a huge wave of resignations causing a labour shortage.
If you are feeling this way, it's going to take more than a double espresso…
A couple years ago, a video went viral on Youtube called The “1 Billion Dollar Morning Routine”. It was made in partnership with Jim Kwik who is a multi-million dollar “brain coach” and American entrepreneur and it claims to explain the habits of some of the most successful people in the world…aka billionaires.
I had three initial reactions upon watching the video for the first time:
We see it in the movies all the time —sticking it to your boss after years of stress and running around in circles for people you really don’t care about.
You dream about that moment when you walk out of the front doors of your (now former) office, sun on your face and looking freedom straight in the eye.
Two years ago, I actually did it. I left the corporate world and turned my side hustle into a full-time consulting gig. …
As a real estate investor, things changed when I hit property number three this past year. I felt like I became (an awkward and somewhat illegitimate) part of an elite club, the members of which started to open up to me about the tried and true tricks of the industry.
I started a corporation in 2021 to purchase this third property, and it was at this time that my legal and financial team made me privy to a system that has been in place for ages.
I had an immediate light-bulb moment — this is how the rich have been…
At age 27, I left my corporate job. Workplace harassment, stunted creativity, and a definite ceiling on pay had left me feeling defeated and exhausted. I quickly realized that the pain from not doing something would be much greater than the pain from actually doing something.
Sometimes that is just what it takes for the magic to happen. Fast forward three years, and I have acquired three investment properties, run a small consulting business, and write online both for pleasure and profit.
If I were to go back and tell my 27-year-old, broken self that I could make all of…
Micro-cheating, micro-dosing, microchipping…when we look back on this time I can’t help but think we will giggle at our obsession with “little things”.
It seems that the traumatic events that have occurred in the millennial lifespan have caused us to take huge events and shrink them down. What do you do, after all, when within 20–30 short years you have been faced with:
This is by no means, by the way, a comprehensive…
I have accomplished this twice writing as a side-hustle
Within six months of starting my side-hustle of freelance writing, I have earned $14,933.11. I have published about 40 pieces, two of which reached the 100K mark, while many others are performing strongly.
The first article I wrote that went viral was a complete shock. My definition of viral is based on Zulie Rane’s criteria of a piece that earns at least $1,000 — this particular article has earned me over of $4,500 so far. Contrary to popular belief, when the article was published, I had:
Ahh, ye old friend writer’s block. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the game or if you’ve been around the block a couple of times; it happens to the best of us.
The first piece I wrote that went viral lit a fire in me like no other. I felt on top of the world. I also naively thought that feeling would never go away. But about a month later, I stopped writing almost completely for two weeks.
It feels sad for me to write this, but I really felt like I lost any and all inspiration. I now…
High school essay question, circa 2120: “Describe the role the 2020 pandemic played in the restructuring of western industry. Give examples.”
Well, for one, we have seen what looks like the start of a Great Resignation. And businesses are having to respond. Fast.
The train wreck that is the 40-hour workweek has been the talk of the town ever since the Covid-19 pandemic started ripping through the world and changed our work lives forever.
“Someone once told me ‘time is a flat circle.’ Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.”
Viral signs are not employment data. They do, however, point to a serious trend of people throwing in the towel. We are seeing literal signs popping up everywhere telling us to be patient with the staff that did show up to work and to please (for the love of God) apply within.
Well, in a world where our motto used to be “old habits die hard”, our new motto is looking something more like “ignorance is no longer holding us hostage”.
Freedom — we all got a taste of it. At the very least, the opportunity to work…
