Follow your heart!
4. Master simple living. One of the best ways to enjoy work more is to do less of it, says Krznaric in How to Find Fulfilling Work. “Millions of people are addicted to their jobs, work long hours, and suffer stress and anxiety as a result. But how can we cut back on the hours if we've still got all those bills to pay? The classic answer is to learn to live on less money, so we don't need to work so hard to support our consumer lifestyles. And that means mastering the art of simple living. Here the inspiration comes from religious traditions and spiritual thinkers. The Desert Fathers were early adherents of simplicity, as were 18th century Quaker radicals such as John Woolman. The best advice probably comes from Henry David Thoreau: "A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.”
