Loafeur

Solo-preneurs of the world, Disunite!

It sounds like the revolutionary call for the workers to unite. But the path of the greater resignation is one of independence.

The word saboteur is derived from workers wearing wooden shoes called sabots who interrupted production. But sabotage is a negative behaviour.

A nice pair of slippers, on the other hand, is part of the creative loafing experience.

The shoe called the loafer got its name because it’s easily slipped on, without the work of laces and knots. That sounds like a metaphor for the independent, creative career I have in mind.

So maybe those who choose the path of the greater resignation are loafeurs.

📝 Loafing

I really like this word, loafing.

Is it a privilege of social class, or a measure of success? Maybe it’s just a state of mind.

Ernie J. Zelinski talks about creative loafing, a constructive state of creativity.

Loafing makes me think of Richard Branson wearing a sweater instead of a suit. Something about success that doesn’t need to impress.

Perhaps it’s part of the greater resignation I have in mind. A successful career, filled with creative flow, and without hustle.

I’ve started wearing slippers, during my ‘work’ hours, as a reminder to loaf more and be creative.
