I think it all comes down to finding what you really love to do and doing it until you can’t do it anymore.
It is also about helping people as much as you can and having the things you need to live a nice life.
You really don’t need that much stuff though, you may want a lot of things, but you really don’t need a lot of things to be happy. If you are doing what you love then you really don’t want much else, so try and find that thing that you love to do and do it. Heat pump repairs make me money, but I wouldn’t say it is what I really love to do. I love playing music and playing drums in my band, and that is what I am focused on doing for the rest of my life. I do some ductwork cleaning and repairs each week to put food on the table and to give me a place to stay, but I try to spend most of my energy on practicing singing and playing the drums in my band. I was doing comedy for over 15 years but got tired of the scene so I changed over to music and am so happy I made the switch. I played in a ton of clubs without climate control in front of aggressive audiences, but no more will I do that. I am happy to play music on the streets or in bars with my band and I am happy that I had the guts to make the change at 55 years old.
