Getting out of your comfort zone + becoming a nomad :)
Everyone's comfort zone is different. And they all started as scary new things. And then we kept doing them over and over until they were no longer scary and became comfortable. As soon as they become too comfortable it's time for a change. It's time to try something new.
These can be small changes, like learning weight lifting after several years of doing yoga. Or big changes, like moving to San Francisco after several years of living in your home town.
For me, I've grown really comfortable working from home. At first there was lots of growing and stretching as I learned to organize, focus, resist temptation to procrastinate (which isn't always a bad thing btw) and manage my time effectively. Several years and a library of business development, organization and personal growth books later, it's time for a change. I considered going into my office more often, renting a studio space, working from cafes, or traveling and working remotely. The last one is the most exciting idea (+ the biggest stretch), so I'm going for it. I have a few trips lined up this year and I'm going to work while I travel.
I'll do my best to prepare for all possible issues ahead of time. But I know there will be things that I can't predict, and even some that I can't fix while I'm away. That thought right there is terrifying to me.
I'll update this blog with the successes and failures (lessons learned) before during and after working remotely.
Next stop: Hawaii :)
