Since sharing my struggles about work last week, I have heard two sides of encouragement. Some guys said less work is best. But many guys said its our duty to bust tail, as that is how we provide and serve our family. It’s quite the divide of views.
I don’t think there is a right answer, though guys that work more or less still have the same struggles.
A thought I had was what if we simply HAD LESS instead of struggling to work less. Less house, less car, less cable, less credit, less of everything. The American Dream is killing us all. As if all this stuff will make us happier. If we had much less, then the stress and struggle of work and finances wouldn’t be nearly as strong. We wouldn’t have to bust tail just to feed, since we wouldn’t be sending our paychecks to creditors. I don’t know the answer. But I know that less is more. I strive to work less so I have more family time. But that won’t happen if we keep over-committing our finances to keep up with the Dream.
