I just came across an article about a guy who also quit Microsoft to do a startup.
Not so interesting in itself, but he discovered that working while traveling is a great way to be more productive.
And most importantly… wait for it… that it can actually be more affordable than renting in Seattle!
There’s even a name for this location-independent lifestyle: “Digital nomad“.
I’ve already found that working around the city when and where I’m inspired is much more productive than working in an office.
And I was so inspired by a trip to Mexico with H last winter.
She would read and do her thing on the beach while I worked for a while, and then we’d swim or sail or explore or whatever we wanted the rest of the time.
I got a lot done, and I had a lot more fun doing it.
I wanted life to be like that every day.
(It turns out that H didn’t have that much fun, but that’s another story.)
The catch was that for some reason I thought I had to have a successful startup first before I could travel.
That’s what’s blowing my mind.
I can do this now!
I can tell you now that I won’t be spending the winter here in Seattle.
Now this is interesting!
