Every dollar you spend represents a portion of your life you spent doing something you didn't necessarily want to do. amirite?

Do what you enjoy doing, seriously, not doing that costs the minutes you can't spare. Also, you can enjoy sweeping floors, if you have the right attitude and goals while doing it.

@dankXD Do what you enjoy doing, seriously, not doing that costs the minutes you can't spare. Also, you can enjoy sweeping...

But also, doing what you enjoy doing, for your daily wage, makes it mundane to an extent that you might not even enjoy doing it after a point!

That being said, we cannot spend every minute of our lives doing only what we like doing. That's not practical. That IS life! But in the long course of time, what's important is for everyone to realize the significant parts of one's life and holding a balance or even try to get the balance right!

Not really...sometimes we spend on things we love, sometimes not.

Every dollar you make you pay for with your life and it will not have been enough when your time is up.

Actually I went to go see my grandma which for me was free and she gave me a tenner and I love her so no, this is not true

I enjoy doing things that make money as well as enjoy doing things where I spend money.

I think of this every time I light a cigarette. How I spend time to take time

This is deep, and I think it is important for people to realize. Our life has become our currency.

Is that why I feel guilty for being paid for doing something I enjoy? I'm so used to selling my time doing things I didn't enjoy, now that I'm happy I feel a bit guilty...

OMG I have been dealing with the same thing! I turned to my wife just the other day and told her I think I have survivors guilt over having a perfect job that pays very well for half days of work doing my own thing/something I love. Most of the time the feeling is super happy and grateful, but then I go into Dollar General and see people who work way harder than I do and I know they're only making a pittance...why do I get to do what I love while so many others have to trudge into jobs they still hate?

Then I realize that the reason people have the $ to pay me to do what I love at all is because they earned the $ doing something they'd rather not, and they chose to spend it with me. That helps some but it's still a daily thing I have to mull over and reconcile.

Not unless you make much much less than minumum wage (which is definitely a thing in some countries)

But for us internet users, 1 dolloar only represents about a few minutes. If youre wealthy it might be a minute or less. And then there are some jobs for which its more complicated.

TBF: I think this applies to all animals. E.g. I think birds like having nests but building it may be a pain

@synthsexual TBF: I think this applies to all animals. E.g. I think birds like having nests but building it may be a pain

I wonder if birds even have the reflection to ponder "I'd rather not be doing this"

I imagine it's more like "This is what I'm doing now"

Earning money is doing things for others. Spending money is getting others to do things for you. Simples.

You win life if the thing others want you to do is the same as things you want to do... :D 2nd prize if your jobs for others are singificantly more valuable to others than jobs others do for you. Problem is these jobs are generally either specialised, stressful or hard to get (perhaps all three?).

I wanted to make money so I did a thing I enjoy doing anyway.

@Huemaninstrument I wanted to make money so I did a thing I enjoy doing anyway.

Yeah, well, Winnie the Pooh we can't all work in HR giving a man jobs for honey.

@ambitiouscorner Why does this sound dirty?

Winnie the Pooh.. human resources. Man jobs for honey....

If you really think about it....op doing what they love? Prostitution..... Hand Jobs for money... Man jobs for honey... It's a stretch

You didn't want to do but needed to do. Not just to earn the money, but also to develop the desire to do the things you want to do.

Yup people have to do stuff they don't want or we all live in the Stone Age again

This is kind of a depressing way to look at things.

I genuinely enjoy my work even though many don't and constantly complain. I've also been unemployed and while that was nice for the first couple months, it sucked for the rest of the time I wasn't working.
