To borrow from Bernie Sanders’s stump speech, the richest 1 percent in America have almost 40 percent of our country’s wealth, while the bottom 90 percent have 73 percent of the debt. This is largely the result of technology. And just wait until our work force is truly affected by the rise of robots and automation.

The older I’ve grown the more I’ve come to realise that I can’t do it all. It’s far better for me to focus on getting great at a few things and let someone else, who is an master at things that I am not, do what they do best.

This is definitely not always practical but the more tasks I can outsource, the more time I have to become a master of the things that I want to get good at.

5 million jobs to be lost by 2020 →

A really interesting read. If you’re not into retirement in the next five years, for me it’s mandatory to begin to think at what our job possibility will be…

What will happen to jobs?
According to the Forum’s Future of Jobs report, some jobs will be wiped out, others will be in high demand, but all in all, around 5 million jobs will be lost.
Already jobs exist now that had never been heard of five years ago: the role of data scientist, which is in huge demand, is one example.

For me the concept of work/life balance is bullshit. The fact that we call it work/life balance automatically implies that one of the two is negative and we need to balance it with the other. It usually implies that you have work on the evil side, and life on the other. It makes it look like these two things are competing for your attention and well-being.

But work and life are not separate. They are the same, there is only one thing, it’s called LIFE. Work is part of my life, it’s not competing against it.
