Hi Chris,

I’ve heard you say that when you met Cacilda you realised she could teach you to work harder and you could teach her to relax more. My question is do you think there is any inherent value in ‘working harder’? I recently finished Civilised to Death and was struck by the typical day of hunter-gatherers who only ‘worked’ for 2-3 hours a day doing things we would consider holiday activities šŸ™‚

If you had unlimited income would you have written books or started the podcast? Do you do these things because they bring you joy or also because you saw a need to work harder, bring in an income etc. With unlimited income do you think you could be happy just living without ‘work’?

All the best,
