I've created an environment and set of rules to help me survive in this realm.
Here are some details:
Live alone (no excuses)
Healthy lifestyle? (create rules like keeping a near empty fridge so that you can go more often to the grocery store and keep from having to clean the fridge because most of the time you eat everything.)
Washing your vehicle? (buy a bucket and cleaning supplies and let yourself go broke so that you can learn to relish washing it yourself)
living the freelance life? (find a set of hobbies that you really enjoy or bring value to your life, ex. I swim in the summer, ride my bike year round, go to the gym and try to work the least amount of time possible) This way you justify your stress free lifestyle with the fact that you actually do what you want to do. Do what you want and don't worry about labeling yourself as a procrastinator when in all actuality you are simply busy doing what you want.
Have some kids. (believe it or not, it's not as bad as everyone thinks. I mean, how quick can they actually grow up, reallly. Their days are just as long as yours. By the time they get wound up, you'll be picking up the pace as well, right along with them.
Inspire your intellect in creative ways. (for example, I've recently took up singing - what does it do for me? It adds value on the romantic side, synchronizes my brain hemispheres, clears up the feeling bad for yourself feeling in your throat and makes you drink lots of water. Believe it or not, getting up to pee all the time keeps you on your toes and before you know it your metabolism has changed and girls are looking at you everywhere.) When you end up with girl options everywhere, you want to kick yourself in the *ss because you need more money. You push harder for more options and a cycle begins where you know something needs to give. In fewer words, keep dreaming. Take tiny steps towards being the Tom Cruise, Casanova, successful guy you want to be. Just remember, these guys live a relaxed life. Focus on the end results, not all the hard work to get there. In two words. RETIRE EARLY and consider yourself a lucky guy!!!
