Everyone should work within their own limits (personally 3 days a week, 5 hours a day), and in a job they love.

That's an ideal life until you need a doctor at 3 AM in the morning, because everyone's doing their job 5 hours a day, 3 days a week, and docs wouldn't be working at 3 AM in the morning.

Or perhaps there is a health room in every house, like a bathroom, where the AI takes care of you. Thus freeing up doctors to spend time on creative pursuits...i mean expirements.

Doctor at 3 AM works maybe with different timezones, internet, and video chat and local robot remote controlled

That might be doable, given that the latency of StarLink sat internet at 20 to 40ms is acceptably low enough to operate real-time machinery (or gaming) across the globe.

If doctors only worked half as much as they do now, would it be an issue if we then had twice as many doctors? The necessary amount of doctoring in society can be done, while freeing up time for doctors to spend on their non-doctorly hobbies. Could this be a win-win for getting things we need to get done, while also giving each person more time to live a more holistic life?

If 90% of the jobs are automated, than we could have x 20 times the number of doctors.

At some point, with AI and robot assistance, people could do surgeries on their self on their own.

We'll work it out, for sure. That's why millionaires still go to work every day. Sometimes, it's not about the money.
