Long since I stopped working

Recently, I came across an interesting perspective on modes of professional life of knowledge worker

The professional life of the independent knowledge worker occurs in four different modes: insanity, give-back, work, and fun.

If you are serving people you don’t like to be with and are not getting paid, that is insanity.
If you are serving people you enjoy being with but are not getting paid, that is give-back.
If you are serving people you don’t like to be with but are getting paid, that is work.
If you are serving people you enjoy being with and are getting paid, that is fun.

Well, on retrospection, I think it has been years since I stopped working, going by this classification, an interesting one at that; essentially what I do is either a give back or fun
