In its most fundamental way, time is freedom!
Think about it.
The more time you have that’s yours, the more choices that you have, as to what you do with that time and how you control the course of your life. What this means is that you have the ability to increase your own freedom and stop feeling as though you’re just along for the ride in life. You can take control and free up more time in your days. And one of the best way to do this is by changing the way you work, either working remotely or working online.
The pandemic has really thrown remote work into the spotlight. And a lot of companies are now realizing that they will lose out on quality talent if they aren’t flexible when it comes to remote work. So many companies are now forced to have an open mind to different ways of working.
This brings tremendous opportunities for professionals. It gives us the ability to have the most common example of a true work-life balance. You can work online, you can work remote, and then you will have some freedom in your days because you can start to choose when, where, and even how you work. Depending on your organization, you can decide to make your work fit around your lifestyle instead of being forced to squeeze your life and squeeze your days into a nine to five job.
So what do you do with this freedom when you finally have it?
You know, and the common choice for many is to become what’s known as a digital nomad. This is a term that describes someone who travels the world while they’re working remotely, or working online.
They use this freedom and this lack of chains to a desk to just work on the, go and get to see the world. They’ll travel from one state to another, or even other countries and they meet new people. They see incredible things every day. And then in the evening they use, the rest of their time to work. Doing so from either from coffee houses, hotel wifi or even co-working spaces.
Now this is true freedom.
They’re able to support themselves and grow their careers and while doing so, they’re still also getting to climb mountains and see famous landmarks and discovered new cultures. They aren’t tied to any one place, and this is really one of the best demonstrations of freedom. Now, some of us won’t have this flexibility.
It depends on where we are in our careers and our different life situations. Having a job job that gives us freedom might not come so easily. So what can you do in your current situation?
