More Jobs Than Ever Before and More Free Time Than Ever Before…You Can Have Both !?

Before I get into it…how about these Dolomites!!

My guide Filipo grabbed this great photo of me somewhere along this 10k climb to the ridge/valley below the first set of Dolomites we will see this week…

I made it to the top of the 3,500 foot climb with no issues…

Today will be a much bigger challenge as we have a 30 km climb and 5,500 feet straight up and out of the hotel. This adventure/vacation feels like work.

Place your bets…

Onward…

For so many, it seems like there are more opportunities than ever and more time.

I am no doubt biased based on my age group and demographic (I can work long, productive hours from anywhere including my cycling trip), but the data does not lie.

There are MORE jobs than EVER before…

It does not feel like people are at all interested in ‘these jobs’. Hiring is brutal, not just for restauanats and other service businesses but for startups as well.

Tik Tok, Instagram and Snapchat content is increasing as is time spent on the sites. Etsy, Shopify, Square, and the rest of fintech and e-commerce are working their magic… steering people away from the jobs that the government is used to tracking.

Back in January 2020 I wrote ‘The Golden Age of Art and Creativity‘ and that was before COVID did it’s thing (and continues).

There are lot’s of new stresses coming into the system, but I sense that people will be happier in the new ‘jobs’ that the government eventually figures out how to measure.
