i was thinking about this last night on my pedal. if i did extended periods off i wouldnt be doing nothing, it would be to relax and spend time improving/learning new skillsets. in my head this is what my perfect mini retirement week would look like when i was home. i would take a few extend trips to do cool stuff, figure 20% of the time.

one of the places i worked in my 20s had an old guy who built a business and sold it. he was loaded. he would come in a few days a week and help out with whatever needed to be done and hang out. his son was friends with the owner. it gave him something to do, he also helped the owner out in a mentorship way. i would probaby leverage a few relationships and see if i couldnt shadow some CEO types of different companies. there are also some people i know who have their own business, where i could just be helpful.
