Last week I wrote about Antiwork, the YOLO Economy, Time Millionaires and shared my interview with Paul Millerd.
Ditching the Default Plan
The common thread is that people are asking: Why should we devote the majority of our time, during the best decades of our lives to work that:
a) we don’t find meaningful
b) undervalues our capabilities and creativity
c) no longer provides certainty for the future, and
d) interferes with our ability to enjoy life outside work
You’ve heard all of this from me before, but I’m not “antiwork” at all.
Ideally, we can all find ways of working that allow us to “give our gifts” and maximize our contributions to the world, bring us joy and meaning, and don’t detract from our ability to enjoy life outside of work.
A Ridiculous Fantasy?
If that all sounds too idealistic or unrealistic, then meet Rob Dyrdek.
Up until a couple of weeks ago, I only knew of Rob as a former pro skateboarder and that guy on MTV 24/7.
