I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

All work sucks?


All work sucks. It is how much you are compensated for it in monetary terms that matters.

Work Sucks: That is the reason why we need Labor Day. One full day to relax away from work and count the hours until you’re forced to return to your joyless, monotonous job that sucks.

Another important day that you must stay away from work. It is your Birthday!

Who are the people likely to shout work sucks?

May be those people in the Left Quadrant are most likely to shout work sucks and it is not surprisely to include self-employed like taxi-drivers, hawkers, private tutors, dentists, etc. My ex-classmate who is self-employed dentist also say that his work sucks - working a 7-day week and long hours and he is hoping for an early retirement.

How often do you hear those people in the Right Quadrant shout work sucks? May be these people don't really use their own human labour intensively; but leverage on others and their capital to get works done so they don't really feel work sucks.

So follow Rich Dad Poor Dad's advice, try to spend less time and energy in the Left Quadrant and move more into the Right Quadrant, and then you don't need to look forward to the next Labour Day.

  1. Yes, it is indeed true that if you are business owner, you are less likely to say that work sucks.

    But my FIL is a business owner too and sometimes it seems that he does not enjoy what he is doing but is doing it to support the family.

    I guess there are ups and downs for every line of work that we engage in. Even Donald Trump will feel down sometimes doing the things he enjoy =)

    Just my 2 cents.

    Very insightful thoughts by the way
