Living well without a traditional job
The title of this post may seem like an impossibility, but it is a good idea to give it serious thought as with increasing longevity, many people will have perhaps as many or more post retirement years, as the number of years spent working in a traditional job role.
We all seek happiness, success and fulfilment in our lives. But most of our life is spent around getting ourselves educated to get a ‘traditional’ job, working at such jobs till retirement and then a post – retirement life. With extending lifespans and rapid changes in the ‘ abundance’ around us, the model of traditional jobs as the central theme of life will change towards flourishing and thriving and not merely surviving of Darwin.
We have seen times when the most common form of having income was to work for someone as an employee in a job. But there are possibilities of income without being in a traditional job. Passive income happens while you are asleep, while you are watching movies on television or without your input whatsoever. The establishment of an Intellectual Property Regime allows one to benefit from development of such products for a long time.
I have developed a WhatsApp delivered weekend course to spread awareness of the possibilities. Of course, these ideas will take time to be realised and yield results.
The first edition of this weekend course is on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March, and thereafter it will be on every 4th weekend of the month.
The flow of topics over these 2 days is as follows:
Day 1: What is a good life?
1.1: Socrates on ‘ an unexamined life is not worth living’.
1.2: Aristotle’s idea of living well
1.3: Purushartha : Artha, Dharma, Kaam and Moksha; yogic concept of aparigraha and asteya
1.4: The Japanese concept of Ikigai
1.5: The Harvard Study
Day 2: Investing for a good life
2.2: Limitations of a traditional job
2.3: An investment in education gives the best returns
2.4: Voltaire: One must cultivate one’s own garden
2.5: Developing and profiting from your ‘ Intellectual Property’
