5 Ways to Remain Focused as a Digital Nomad

Distraction is a simple word but it brings down an ocean of ramifications on one’s life. Going by the digital nomads’ interviews, one point stands out firmly: avoid distractions as a digital nomad. To remain focused as a digital nomad is a key challenge to achieve equilibrium in travel and work life. Well, if you are somebody in the footsteps of digital nomads and finding it tough to tackle your vagabond instinct and on the other side a desire to earn while travelling, you need no consolation but some tips to increase your willpower and focus on self-control.

It is tough to stay focused as a digital nomad but not impossible.


Travel Leisurely:

Accept that you are a few steps ahead than a traveller. A traveller is a person who exploits the most of his time while vacationing. You, too, are a traveller but somewhere deep down in your heart you are tied up to earn to fund your overall expenses. Thus, travelling slow works best for you because it gives you time to settle down in that place to finish your deadlines and allows for a feasible routine. When you stay longer at a place, make sure you take out time for shorter trips. That is the best way to explore the place without losing focus of work.

Don’t be so Adventurous:

Tourists around you will be free and ready for most of the excursions. So whenever you have work deadline but people around you are pestering you for a long horse ride, better learn to say no or practice some plausible excuses. You should know when you can work and when you are free to explore or mingle with others. Digital nomads are full time workers – aren’t they?

Fix up a Routine:

It is easy to get into a routine in a normal job or when working from home. However as a digital nomad you have to experiment with different schedules until you find the best one. Working hours differ from one place to another. In Canada you may work full day and then party and sleep at night but in Mexico you need to beat the heat in day hence you would prefer working at night. Defined goals help in meeting the work deadlines conveniently.

Connect with Other Digital Nomads:

You will find good people in tourists and locals but tough to find like-minded people like you who are out and travelling and earning. If you found other nomads around you, better be in touch with them for motivation and tips.

Pack Your Bag Carefully:

Few items are indispensable to you such as laptop, data cable, camera, internet connection, smart phones, hard-drives, and some dry food items. Carry all that is necessary for your profile because buying the same things from your destination might prick your budget.

6 Passive Income Ideas for Struggling Digital Nomads

To set yourself as a competent digital nomad, you need to have either strong financial back up or good passive income coming from some of reliable sources. Well most of the digital nomads work for clients either directly or through service marketplaces; hence, it is quite apparent that neither their income nor work flow is consistent in the early days. At times, clients take unnecessary time to release pay cheque, and obtaining regular work from freelance portals among such cut-throat competition is a difficult job because initially you need to agree as per their terms and conditions. With time when you grow with your performance and make a credible name, gigs come automatically to you. However, there is a gap time between that successful point and the struggling spell.
