No Bossing – No Fuss:
For miles and miles, there is no one around you to peep into your affairs. Whether you are awake, sleeping, planning or lying idle – absolutely there is no one around to take your report. Only you and your client (in case you are working for others). In a nutshell, vigilance is just a word for you. Digital nomads do what fit best in their schedules. This gives them immense flexibility and freedom to develop their business and skill set. They are the boss of their own lives, they do what they like. It is a beautiful life as a digital nomad.
Work from Anyplace:
You are free from 9-5 jobs. You can work from anywhere, it can be your home, friend’s place, a small nice coffee shop in your street, or you can travel to Asian beaches or if want scenery all around for that you can move to the Himalayas. You can go anywhere; you aren’t only travelling but expanding your business as well. This is the best life a human being can ever imagine.
Free from Sleep and Wake up rules:
The biggest hurdle in a regular job is to maintain an uninterrupted schedule and that happens when you wake and sleep at a fixed time. However, as a digital nomad, you can wake through all night without worrying about next morning’s chores because you know when to work and where to roam about and when to sleep. Your life, your time, your call – that is very simple.
Knowledge Base Expands:
Travelling is another great source of knowledge other than book reading and watching media. As a traveller you see the culture and people and their difficulties and rituals all first hand. From books you may get the semblance of that place but visiting it personally is a matchless experience. As a traveller your decision making power augments automatically as you know when and how to handle certain things. Those decision-making things you will not learn in a university or school.
You Grow as a Focused Learner:
If you learn the things that you need, you will be better ahead than those of normal guys who believe in learning all that comes to their way. You know what skill can get you handsome paycheck, thus as a busy traveller cum worker you only heed on the things of significance. This way you grow as a focused learner, not like a jack of all trade. You begin respecting time, as you know unable to meet deadlines means dunking your own growth.
You accept that being a digital nomad you need to work persistently and focused until you settle yourself into a comfortable score. Have you ever thought of that stage where you achieve all your goals and feel a surge of confidence always running down your veins? Simply you become self-confident. A stage from where you dare to accept more challenges and laugh on the challenging things of the past.
You tend to Explore more about yourself:
Knowing oneself is a virtue but most of the people ignore this factor while taking challenges in their hand. As a person you better know what your weaknesses are or what the positive area of your attitude is. This helps in planning out things perfectly. It is fine if you prefer working in morning hours unlike many freelancers who work mostly at night.
It is quite obvious that if you are spending your life as a traveller then developing abundant connections is just one outcome. People recognize your work, profile, and understanding factor; thus as a digital nomad, you see a rising graph of your career because your connections are spiraling out like a healthy tree.
