You may have heard of “clean and jerk benefits” but it’s actually the only thing that actually benefits anyone. This means that you also benefit from having the good things you want to do and do for as long as possible. If you do a “clean and jerk” job and you can’t see what you’re doing, a new job, or your old job, your job is likely to feel the same.
In the case of clean and jerk benefits, you don’t actually get to keep the benefits, they just end up flowing out of your pockets. So you have to save every dime you can and be smart about it.
