    Learn, earn or quit!

    Is there another philosophy in term of approaching work that deviates from this?

    Just asking, there are probably more seasoned people than me around here…

    Well, the way I see it, a man's got to have a philosophy in life.

          Where does retirement fit into that? Not really earning a living, living off investment income.
          I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

              Do you mean work, or do you mean your current career?

              If you mean work, then surely 'quit' is only an option is you have earned enough over the years to pay for the lifestyle to allow you to quit?

              Personally, I'm always looking to learn - I never assume I know everything (I know, hard to believe) and I'm always learning and developing. I take this learning on to future roles (and by learning, it doesn't always have to be a new hard skill/programming language, could be a soft skill).

              At your age (30 ish?) you should be learning something new every day. Never think you know it all, it's not a good trait and will come out in interviews.
