I wanted to clarify my comments about work and play I made earlier as it appears I may have been unclear. For me, work is mostly play, and play is nearly all play. I define work as something I would need to be be paid or coerced into doing. As an example of the latter, in my wealth management business there are some regulatory and paperwork things I don’t enjoy doing that must be done to stay in the business. I view them as the cost of admission so I can play the rest of the time. For that reason, I’m probably closer to 95% play/5% work. As it is a regulation-intensive business, 95% play is probably the best I’ll ever achieve if I want to stay in the the investment and wealth management business I so love. Some day, however, I may decide to go for 100% by getting out of that business and going back to helping my friends and family invest without charging them for it.
When work is mostly play then work is fun and enjoyed and not somewhere one has to drag themselves to
Yes, and Mondays and weekends are almost equally enjoyed and looked forward to.
