Set your laser to stun and find that escape hatch


“Lottery tickets are a surtax on desperation”
Douglas Coupland

“Forget the lottery. Bet on yourself instead”
Brian Koslow

 


There are only a handful of options for idle anarchists that have seen through the thin veneer of soulless monotonous corporate work.

The options are:

Rely on luck, magic and fortune. Marry a rich person. Win the lottery. Strike a gold seam in the backyard.

Play for pay. Find work you love. Do it passionately and full heartedly. Accept that you may never pay all of your bills, but you will enjoy your work and be more fulfilled in your life. This is the path of the artist, the musician, the writer, the hobbyist.

Massively reduce your cost of living. Live frugally and simply. By reducing the costs of life and enhancing your skills you can limit or eliminate the need to work.

Build a business and farm it for income or sell it for profit and live off that nest egg.

Of course you can combine all of these options and fast track your freedom from the corporation. Even though you might not have the same income as you would if you continued working chances are you will relish in the challenges of a self determined life and enjoy many more of the minutes of your work experience.
