I have a number of things I need to bring back into circulation...

My productivity seems to be back up... Partly due to health (new medication, which is working well), and partly due to new techniques I'm using...

I'm looking forward to getting as much done as possible (while still enjoying life)...

Which reminds me...

Many years ago, I was talking with a friend of mine. He was wondering, why does Richard Branson still work? He thought, with all his billions of dollars, he should be living life on a beach somewhere, sipping pina coladas all day...

In fact, he was a bit angry, that Richard Branson had the audacity to keep working. "Doesn't he have enough money?" was his angry exclamation!

He was implying that Richard Branson kept working because he was a very greedy S.O.B., and needed a few more dollars in his bank account!

He thought, people only work for the money.

Of course, that's not true...

I am one of those who can never see myself "retiring", as long as my health holds out. I love the challenge of doing things...

I know I'm not the only one. I've heard many entrepreneurs say the same thing. Many are in it for the challenge... or the joy of doing what they love.

My personal view is that, retiring and doing "nothing" is probably bad for your health... We all like to feel useful in society... So, even if I was doing a regular job, and retired... If I didn't do some kind of business, I'd probably do volunteer work. I think it would be good for the body and soul...

Just a quick, rant, off on a tangent...

Best wishes,


You've got your hands full, and with some interesting projects too. Just stay healthy.

Usually, it is the sons and daughters of the wealthy who become the "idle rich", until they get their own interests, if they ever do.

I can't name a single person who thinks laying on the beach all day, or doing nothing would be fun. It might be more a fantasy type dream of what financial freedom would look like, but, every financially free person I know is very busy and involved, and as often as not, with their business.

Work is good for you. IF, you have health and BALANCE.
