I’m Not Very Good at Being Rich [Yet!]
I’ve taken a week’s holiday from work so I can work on my business [who else does that!]. The obvious reason is to put in some solid hours pushing my various projects forward. But the other, possibly more important reason to do this is to allow myself a taste of the freedom that I am working towards.
With revenues increasing rapidly my goal of being out of the rat race by September 2006 should be easily attained. But today I’ve had a startling revelation. I’m lousy at being rich!
This week has been beautiful here in Edmonton and while I have been going for my afternoon walk to Starbucks I have been working away at my desk every other waking moment. No pity please, I love working. This morning I walked over to the window and noticing the gorgeous day, and felt a little hard done by to be stuck inside.
Wait a minute, Jon; you have a laptop and a wireless internet connection. Oh my god, I could have been working in the back yard all week.
I’m just a blue collar guy. I’ve perfected an image of looking like a hard worker. Now that I’m planning to be rich; I’m going to have to loose that attitude. Just like a skilled business person sees opportunities to make money everywhere, having abundance can allow you to see opportunities to enjoy life to a completely different degree.
So, let the education begin, school was never this good.
