Rich actually titled his recent post “Why most Folks Die Without A Happy Ending” which in some ways defines the goal of his content, to solve that problem.

GP had been working seven days a week for the past 6 months with no days off and no vacations. At first I thought I had misheard her, but I hadnâ€™t. Six massages a day, day in and day out, for over 180 days straight.
Rich also offers some thoughts on retirement which for most people will never happen.
Whilst it seems there is a constant trend to concentrate on getting more things done within your working day, Rich concentrates on something much more fundamental, managing your business strategically such that you have a lot less that you have to do each day.
Increased productivity would allow the masseuse to do 7 massages per day instead of six. That would probably bring him/her closer to a sick bed than comfortable retirement.

A subtle hint for my regular readers, Rich’s blog is “friendly”, so it is well worth reading the article and leaving a comment on one of the highest traffic blogs in marketing.
