Feels like retirement
Muse #464 - great work should feel like that
Even if we retire from our professions, we should never retire from pursuing knowledge, wisdom, and the meaning of life.
— George Raveling
One never retires intellectually. Not using my brain for me is akin to not living. But I do feel like that every day though I work full-time. Like I am retired. Because the work does not faze me. And I believe I am ready for what my employer throws at me for the next 10 years. Though that is a little bit of my ego talking.
But the pace of my learning on the subject of the work I do far exceeds the pace at which my organizational system learns. So, the confidence that I would be ahead of such work expectations and what it throws at me.
That is what the joy of life is, isn’t it? Or to whatever we want our lives to be. Who is to say what one’s life should be?
