A new definition of passion: a purposeful activity that uses a person’s talents and skills to make a contribution to the world in a manner that is in harmony with owns values and is in balance with the rest of the person’s life. Ask yourself if you would continue to perform the same work if you won the lottery. The cure to affluenza is to engage in service that you would continue if you had an unexpected windfall.

Together we could create a work friendly society with legislation for a reduced work-hour week, tax credits, subsidies or payroll tax adjustments to induce employers to reduce work hours and offer other program to support the work life balance.

I believe that work is essential so let’s spread it around, make telecommuting the normal and job share. Creating a fulfilled life while living with voluntary simplicity.
Let’s imagine a culture of where everyone took a deep breath and cleared their mind before their next phone call, client or customer. Inspired by Linda Breen Pierce who wrote Simplicity Lessons: a 12 step guide to Living Simply, you can join me to cure Affluenza.
