Long Questions

Jen and I start our 12th year of marriage this week. We’ve been together for 15 years. There’s a good chance – Murphy willing – we’ll see our odometers flip together, that’d make 75 years of marriage.

Assuming we get there, we’ve got 2 more entire lifetimes in front of us.

A decade ago, my profession didn’t exist. Nearly all the companies I’ve worked for since, gone.

Assuming I’ve only really got 1 more ‘productive member of society’ lifetime left in me:

  • Is the work I’m doing now what I want to be doing for another 3 decades?
  • If not, what kind of work would keep me curious, interested, and fed for multiple decades?
  • What can I start now, that will make my 2nd and 3rd lives less stressful and more enjoyable?
  • How do I imagine for 6 decades out when I have a hard time imaging past June ’09?
