Life is short. Why not spend it doing work that matters?
Having more money is great, but what is it worth to you?
Many lives are spent chasing high-paying jobs that might give more financial security, but cause more stress, rob your personal dignity, go against major core values, or leave you asking “what am I doing with my life?”
Here’s the deal:
In order to live a simplified life, be financially secure, and have a successful career you must follow your passion. You’ve probably heard that before, but here’s where Pocket Changed’s approach is different.
Most pundits will preach that you should just get a job, save X% each year, cut coupons on the weekends, and hope for the best until you retire 40 years later. I disagree. We must find something that makes us feel alive each day.
“Time is a zero-sum game, a limited resource. Life is too short to do only what we have to do; it is barely long enough to do what we want to do.” – Tal Ben-Shahar
So, how do you build a career and life around your passion?
I’ll break it down for you in simple and actionable plans that can help improve your life, one week at a time.
