What are the 3 key ingredients to leading the “good life” as a digital nomad or remote worker?
Whether you are location independent or not, the good life for digital nomads may sound like a vague, idealistic concept. Without giving it much thought, you’d probably assume it’s all about achieving the “big goals”:
- Make enough money
- Finding love
- Doing activities you enjoy
And in a way that’s the truth…on the surface it sounds so simple, right?! But when you think about it, the components of each are COMPLETELY different depending on your point of view and your ideals.
Take #1 for instance – “make enough money”
Some might insist “enough” means owning an extravagant dream mansion, an expensive car…or fleet of cars (lambo! lambo! lambo!), constantly dining at fancy, white-tablecloth restaurants (I’d like my grass-fed, bison flank filet medium rare with the Amazon rainforest tree-fruit garnish on the side please), buying the latest gadgets we all imagine ourselves needing (The Apple Watch comes in so many colors!)…the list goes on.
To someone else, making enough money is far more humble. Millions of people would be overjoyed to simply put food on the table every day so they can feed their family and maintain a roof over their head. With these basic needs met, they’d be perfectly happy their entire life.
Most likely your definition (you – the guy or gal reading this!) of enough money falls somewhere between these two extremes 😉
And that’s just on the topic of money. Yikes! You can imagine how any “one size fits all solution to the good life is near impossible. Everyone’s definition of “love” and “favorite activities” would be just as different.
So how the heck can anyone help you, such a special, unique individual lead an awesome life?!
Simple. By breaking it down to its core components.
