Here it is, the day before the last of the challenge.
Today’s task is to describe how we would handle the need to balance work and play if we were on our dream vacation in Portugal/wherever (for me, Croatia :)) and living our “Freedom Lifestyle.”
The first thing that comes to mind is that I would try to make as much use of “in between” time as possible. For example, if I were on a train/bus I would be working on something.
Instead of setting aside a certain amount of time for work, I’d set aside specific tasks I want to accomplish in the day, thereby stressing accomplishments over amount of time spent. This would mean maximizing time for fun, and that is the point, I think.
I imagine that I’d eventually want to learn to delegate tasks to others who could get them done quicker. This is something I know I would have a hard time getting around to, but I can see how it would totally take my projects to the next level.
Lastly, and this just popped in my head, I would work on maintaining contacts with people from all around the world. This way my work would reach people across borders and cultures, meaning it wouldn’t be limited to a very specific niche of people in any one place. This would mean that my world travels would be directly relevant to the work that I would be doing, regardless of the subject matter. So what I’m essentially saying is that the line between work and fun would become splendidly blurred.
This is something that I will be thinking about more and more as it becomes a reality… for now I’ve got a few solid ideas to help me on my way. Hope whoever is reading this can use these tips and share some more!
See you tomorrow for Day 10!(!!!!!)
