Hi there to the beginning of the rest of your life!
Not cheerful enough for a greeting?
Well, maybe, but it’s the truth!
Sorry to remind everybody every now and then that our time is limited. But then, we all need to be aware of this fact, and draw consequences, like trying to have a good day here and now!
As Woodpecker’s family is planning to do exactly that and is going to celebrate our very good family budget results with a decent meal at a nice restaurant around and everybody is already waiting downstairs, today’s post will be short.
Short but very valuable, as I found an interesting study by the Australia Institute about Downshifting in Australia.
They interviewed a couple of downshifters with different approaches (e.g. cutting hours, retiring, changing job to something less paid but more rewarding) on their reasons, feelings, pro’s and con’s, how peers reacted and so forth.
A very valuable Sunday read that gave me some great insights. Hope it’s interesting for you as well.
See for yourself and let me know your opinion:
