You know... There is a way
Not working doesn't mean not working, I have had moments of poverty and times where 6 figures walked through my door and I felt like I hadn't done
The problem is the definition of the term Work
Work to people seems to mean getting a Jawb
But take Mr Miyagi from the old karate Kid, the guy was like what a janitor, worked 3 hrs day fixed a sink for an hr for a few bucks so he ate and had
an pat paid for? what the heck did that go do lol... nothing
But he worked... differently, he collected junk and made it something wax on wax off lol... (okay he was older he got the kid to do it then lol)
But the thing is he had a hobby he loved and did it and then had what... 30 classic cars in mint condition in his yard that guy was rich as all
The thing is he DID he didn't work he just DID stuff... stuff he enjoyed
Personally i'm a lot like that, I paid for college with my comic collection, one book one dollar at a time from 8-20 and one day i sold it and lived
free for 2 years without "working" while finishing school...
You CAN not sell out... sure there will be times you need a Jawb at first.... I never had a jawb for more than 2 weeks in 20 years after that
though... I have a career, I work on computers, but I sit in my house all day... In THEORY i work more than anyone I know....
Right now, the TV is on and i'm watching a show about Rome, posting on the net and working in Photoshop
But is that work? I haven't been to bed but i'm not tired, I have no one to report to really I decide the deadline...
My new thing is going to Japan... I bring American crud with me that resells high that i can get a away with in my luggage, ship a box or so of small
things and sell it to stores... 400 bucks for a pair of sneakers i paid 90 for in the USA, 13.00 for a small jar of peanut butter whatever... and come
back after 10 days with a few G extra for going on vacation...
Is that work? I dunno... I suppose it is, Tonight i'm doing some art for a guys for a few hundred bucks while typing because I like tripping out on
Far from rich but I never suffer for long... I could make a lot more if I chose too but I like my free time...
But never sold out, never got a Job... I just DO stuff I like to do...
There are times like when i first got divorced it scared the crap out of me...for a couple of recent years i was a freak because i was never required
to PAY things by a certain day or "get in trouble" lol but it's a Zen thing really...once I calmed down, it got easy again for the most part
It's stuff... wanting STUFF causes expenses, if your expenses get high enough it becomes next to impossible to not have a steady pay check and then
your in the trap...
I'm not even saying I am some Guru at it... I honestly still freak out a lil sometimes... and America makes it hard to do, Bills are due on day X
But the commonality i think all BILLIONAIRES have is they do it like me... most NEVER sell out
Bill Gates just...trips balls on computers so did Steve Jobs... they never had a Jawb a day in their lives...
Those guys do what they like to do and do it for the sake of doing it...
You have to DO stuff... sitting around and like smoking pot and doing nothing lol... wont work, a lot of people think that's not selling out... if
you like Pot you have to get really involved in Pot somehow... make pipes while you get stoned blow bubblers with a 300.00 glass blower...
But you never have to work at a Jawb and sell out and let them OWN YOUR TIME
You just have to do stuff... get into things that's the way out.
No expenses, do what you love... when you do what you Love you don't NEED things your too busy for that nonsense of non fulfillment
