Episode 101: Working to Live or Living to Work?

What are you working for? Seriously, it’s a question that deserves an honest answer.  For most people, especially those who work the 9-5 grind, the answer is clear – to make it to retirement.   I just don’t get it.

Believe it or not I’ve been asked about my retirement plans many times, more and more frequently as I navigate my 50’s.  In breaking down this mindset I realize there are layers and layers of programming at work here. From an early age we are conditioned to go to work, put in the years, save some money, and then retire.  That path may work for others, but certainly not for me.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • My take on the retirement mindset 
  • How value conflicts and changing the foundation around what you think is crucial to a healthy mindset 
  • That your existing world view is always running in the background whether you are aware of it or not and it’s been there since childhood
