Travel and Work
Travel to Work or Work to Travel?
Travel to work is the online world in which we live. We are thankful to have the opportunity to work from wherever we want, needing only our laptop and access to the internet.
You may be wondering how we stay productive in our business while travelling and still having fun. Here are three guidelines that ensure we keep moving forward in our business everyday no matter where we are.
Work Does Feel Like Work Anymore
Before we start, we would like to make an Online business vs. Traditional business comparison.
When we were in traditional business work felt like work. We would get up, get ready to go to the office, commute with people on the same treadmill of life, work all day and commute home - sleep - repeat. It was something we did without questioning it. Traditional work and all the things surrounding it like the commute, the gridlock, office politics was work - hard work.
In comparison in our online business we decide where and when we work. We no longer commute (unless you consider walking to our favourite coffee shop a commute). Work is much more fun and creative, we blog, we make videos and we learn. No more traditional office space, goodbye florescent lights, windows that don’t open and stale air. Hello sandy beaches, palm trees and cool cafes. It’s still work, it just doesn’t’t feel like it.
Working outside the traditional boundaries can be distracting. Here are three things we do so we can work and have fun at the same time. After all, this is the reason we started an online business in the first place.
Three practices that contribute to our success:
1) Keep our eyes on the end goal.
Set the intention to accomplish small goals every day. Maintain our routine of blogging twice a week, creating and posting a video once a week.
2) Remain aware of our surroundings and take interesting/inspiring photos and videos constantly.
Since being involved in this business we notice our surroundings, everything is a potential inspiration for a blog or a video. This is one of many gifts our online business has given us. Live in the moment.
3) Wake up very early and we find a place to work where we are surrounded by people within the local community. We know we are the most productive in the morning so we leverage that time, it’s when we are at our best. Productive time is different for everyone, this works for us.
Work in the morning when we are away and take the afternoon off and enjoy the rest of the day.
Continue to look for video and blog inspiration, we notice things we used to walk by.
The Solution That Helped Us Break Free
Since becoming involved with Six Figure Mentors or SFM, work doesn’t feel like work. We have the opportunity to make a difference. We are connected to a global community of like minded people who are all on a journey like us. All of us were looking for a way to escape traditional business and all the challenges that accompany it. We were searching for time and financial freedom and the ability to work from where ever we want.
Check out these seven videos to learn how you can have this lifestyle too. It takes commitment and dedication to get out of your comfort zone, but hey it’s worth it to put an end to the treadmill traditional of work kept us on.
Work - eat - sleep - repeat - work - eat - sleep - repeat……no thank you!
