Forecasts for the next couple of years are not great. There’s talk of the return of inflation (remember rising prices?), supply problems (where have all the drivers gone?) and the demands of a rapidly ageing population. Lump in with that the death of the “job for life” and it seems that you may well be working into the twilight years of your life – because the state benefits and your pension plan won’t cough up enough money for you to survive in retirement.
Maybe it’s time get into Futurology – taking a look into your future to work out what your real needs are – rather than your wants – and focussing what’s essential.
A realistic plan may well combine part-time work that suits you that gives your security and a little bit of luxury – and time to do things you want to do with your life.
What would make your future tolerable would be in a career or job where your skills and knowledge are what interest and engage you – and are what your employer needs and recognises.
