The 4 essential pillars of a good life – Part 3


We live in exciting times. Like so many other things, the internet has also revolutionized the job market. Books could be filled with case studies and arguments for and against this development. Here we focus on the opportunities and possibilities.

in the tried and tested manner

I would like to say quite cheekily:

There aren’t any people who don’t have one or more talents that other people need.

Today, these talents can be easily and quickly monetized with an effective strategy and the right platform. With a well-described tactic, anyone can do it.

On the one hand, this means it is easier to earn money with your passion, on the other hand, the competition is greater, because everyone who knows how has this advantage it works.

Because this is the 3rd pillar of the good life, my vocation, my mission, my passion or as the French say, my “raison d ‘être”, it makes sense to enter the large market of competitors with the talent that suits me and gives me the greatest pleasure.

Doing only things that don’t bring joy for many years almost always leads to a negative impact on the first two pillars. On the other hand, if the first two pillars of yours work well, the third pillar will almost automatically go in the right direction.

Let’s take a look at this pillar of the good life through the eyes of physics. The law of conservation of energy, as one of the most important principles of science, tells us:

Energy is conserved.  All the energy in a closed system always remains same.

Energy can be converted into different forms of energy, can be transferred from one system to another, but energy can neither be created nor destroyed.

Consider these lines completely sober, physical, practical, not esoteric, metaphysical or spiritual.

How do you feel:

  • … fever after a week?
  • … after a high the day after?
  • … after a 5000 calorie feast?
  • … after a night without sleep?
  • … after a heated argument with someone important to you?
  • … after an outrageous injustice?

Conservation of energy.

How do you feel:

  • … after a few wellness days?
  • … after a varied hike in a sunny mountain landscape?
  • … after a swim in the sea?
  • … after a light, tasty meal?
  • … after 8 hours of deep sleep?
  • … after a long loving hug?
  • … after a big, hard-earned success?

Conservation of energy.

Now you can answer the question yourself what it means when you have been doing something you enjoy for many years. And vice versa.

The good life has a lot to do with this conservation law.

Since we humans use most of our time for our activities after our basic needs such as sleeping, eating, care, we should take a very close look at what kind of energy exchange is calledtakes place. In the end, does energy come in or does energy go out?

My time and my life force (Energy A) is therefore invested in a system in the expectation of an output, a result, an energy recovery in a different form . Joy? Confirmation? Satisfaction? Money? (Energy B)

If the analysis of your considerations on this topic is not to your complete satisfaction, there is need for action! If energy A is constantly greater than energy B, the person comes to a standstill, in the form of burnout, illness or death.

If you now consider your vocation, your job, your activities, your initiatives as an energy investment and the output in the form of salary, profit, recognition as an energy yield and If you see this interaction in the context of the conservation law, you are on the right track.

Let’s try a practical application of the conservation law:


  • Get up early (lack of sleep)
  • long commute to work (lost lifetime)
  • unsatisfactory activity (frustration)
  • physically demanding activity (health)
  • annoying colleagues or unfair superiors (mind)
  • low salary (recognition)


  • Please fill in (if the output is not at least as large as the input, there is an energy problem 😉

As homework, we could determine in which system, according to the conservation law, our energy used in this example disappears!

Where does our energy go when:

  • keep lighting a fag?
  • fizz a few beers?
  • order crap from Amazon?
  • puke on our partner?
  • Watch Netflix?
  • hanging out on social media for hours?

What does all this have to do with calling?


My work, my job, my income, my 3rd indispensable pillar of the good life is according to the law of conservation of energy, according to one of the most important principles of natural science, a thoroughly logical and understandable result of my actions.

Of course you can now write an angry review and warn the world about such nasty articles, or just click away. But you can also think about it and continue to research curiously. 

With blockchain technology, you can today transform this principle of the conservation law in interaction with your talents into passive income.

You can walk towards your dreams in seven league boots, gain sovereignty over your time and experience freedom.

Your time, your talent, your strength, your creativity (Energy A) is converted into Fiat (Energy B) exchanged, excess is exchanged in tokens (Energy C) and generates passive income (Energy D).

We will deal with this again and again here. Only who has time is free. Those who have resources are free. Resources either exist or need to be created. If resources are available, congratulations. If not, you’ve come to the right place.

You need resources to conquer patronage over your time.

This only works with the right energy management, the right job and/or passive income.

The good life means in the 1. Pillar: I spend my life with my body. I only have this one, so I take good care of it! Especially with regard to the 2. Pillar: out of respect and love for my family and friends, my relationship network. These elementary building blocks of the good life always interact intensively. So does the 3. Column, because eA satisfying and rewarding job also has an impact on my health and environment.

If you are not in your ideal situation at the moment, I would like to give you a quick piece of advice along the way.

People sometimes find it difficult to change familiar situations. But the exciting life takes place outside the comfort zone.

Changing something always means a change of attitude, attitude or behavior towards the existing. Routines, familiar and rehearsed things are only modified, reduced, expanded, modified or completely replaced by something new if they are critically analyzed from a distance and compared with new knowledge.

Knowledge is the result of learning, the acquisition of information through attention and memory. The actual change to new behavior begins when the new knowledge, or rather, by becoming aware of the new knowledge, creates a great motivation for change. A motivation that has more power and energy than the sum of everything that someone keeps in their usual behavior.

The most interesting phenomenon in this process is: the protagonist almost always asks himself/herself when the change is complete:

Why didn’t I do this sooner!
