Am I a self declared workaholic?

Workaholic: A workaholic is a person who is addicted to work. While the term generally implies that the person enjoys their work,  it can also imply that they simply feel compelled to do it.

I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say that I am a workaholic as such but I do enjoy working. I was working on my birthday – which I would say is obscure.

I think some people are programmed to do business, even if they aren’t directly aware. People like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, Richard Branson etc, all people who may not have directly understood the paths they’d take but I know how to do business, and make money. I know a good idea when I see one and whether something will or won’t be profitable or ‘worthwhile’.

I see work as a way to keep out of trouble, but others may call it boring. I see dollar signs, when others may not. I don’t call that boring!

 

Quality of life is important!

Some people have asked why I have moved to a town where I know very few people, or where I haven’t really visited much in the past at all. Well, now I am going to clear some things up.

My commute to work is 15 minutes without traffic. I can cycle to work on cycle ways which don’t run along busy roads. If worst comes to worst I can walk to work.

I’m saving nearly two whole hours a day. I can sleep longer and not have to get up so early.

So yes, I could have saved some more, or moved into a smaller house, or had somewhere without offroad parking or a garden, but I get all of those things with a shorter commute. That is why I moved where I have moved to!

And when it comes to it, ‘home’ is only an hour away!

2014 seems just like yesterday. Year roundup!

A lot happened in 2014 – it also went rather quickly for me – here’s a brief summary. Oh and sorry for the brief delay.

1. Made new friends.

2. Traveled to new destinations

3. Turbocharged a car without paying a qualified mechanic or electrician.

4. Bought a house

5. Got a new job.

7. Sold some cars.

8. Lived to die another day

If 2015 is nearly as eventful I’ll be amazed, but never say never. I’ll continue to stay foolish and extend my acquaintances and try and be the best I can.

Cheers to a good year!
