  15. 15. Traditional work/life pattern New work/life pattern 1. Work for an employer - live for the weekends and holidays - worry a lot and be generally unable to control your own destiny. 1. As soon as possible, work for yourself or for decent employer(s), doing various things you love - (tip - you might need to rediscover what you really love). traditional v modern work/life patterns 2. Maybe start your own business still doing something you don't enjoy and continue to worry and work slavishly. 2. Progressively ease off working to spend more time learning and enjoying new things some of which will become new work. 3. Retire on a reasonable pension at 60 or 65, or 55 if you are lucky - continue to worry, and now add feelings of regret and maybe even bitterness. 3. Don't worry about retirement because it can actually kill you (the worry and the retirement), and the pension system is shot to pieces anyway - try to save, but most importantly stay happy and productive. 4. Rapidly decline due to lack of stimulus and 4. Keep learning and developing and doing die quite soon. new things - eat well, keep fit, and be good to people. 5. What was the point of it all?... 5. Live long and happy - still working a little and always learning and enjoying new things.
