Pillar Three: Lifestyle
I’ve tried different lifestyles: Traveling for work, living in a big city, and living a quiet life. I like the last one best because it suits my personality and current goals.
For example, if you don’t like traveling — don’t become a business consultant at a large firm. It sounds like common sense, but you would be surprised how many people hate the lifestyle that comes with their jobs.
Don’t like long hours? Don’t work at a start-up. It’s as simple as that. But you must be honest with yourself. Most of us tell ourselves all kinds of lies: “I’ll get used to the two-hour commute.” No, you won’t.
Hence, pick a job that fits your lifestyle. And that’s different for each phase of life. When you’re young, you don’t mind living in a big city and going out all the time. But when you want to build something real in life, you don’t even have time for that. You need to work, eat, sleep, and repeat. In that case, it’s better to live cheaply in a smaller city.
