Flexible living arrangements. If you're traveling, do you have a mortgage? If you have a mortgage or you have heavy payments that are similar, for your car and other sort of lifestyle items, keeping up with the Joneses so to speak, this type of structure, how can you make adjustments to those, so those payments are not necessarily so cumbersome? Or, how can you leverage so that if you want to leave to go travel, and continue working as you travel, that you won't be carrying all these heavy costs while you're away? You could leave for months, you could leave for as long as you want and go on an adventure, you could leave for a week and come back. How do you take the burden of attachments, which are part of the paradigm of time-based payments?
There is a function of entrapment in these things that keeps us locked in and keeps us dependent on these certain lifestyle systems and these certain lifestyle arrangements, so that we don't just take off and go on amazing adventures, and that we do stay at home and keep just working nine to five every day. For the man, as we say, which is not the way we really need to do it, at least as defined in that sense. So how can we make adjustments to provide and create more flexibility in our world and our lives? So that we can explore more, that we can travel more, that we can do more cool things that files our bucket, that keeps us high-vibing and keeps us enriched in our life experience and our journey, this high-vibrating lifestyle which I've talked so much about and will continue to.
Again, an open schedule, another great point to consider in relation to embracing a more nomadic type of business and personal lifestyle. Do you have an open schedule? What are the time constraints and requirements as it relates to the activities you're involved in? Which ones of those are negotiable, which ones of those aren't negotiable? Which ones of those can you still complete from other locations? Which ones do you need to be at in person? Do you really need to be in the boardroom for that meeting, or could you call in via Skype from another part of the world? I use Skype and video conferencing for all kinds of things now. Wherever possible, I am looking and using things like that to help me just continue to live freely, and really just enjoy what I want to do when I want to do it, but at the same time from cool places, so I don't feel like I'm stuck in a boardroom, a windowless office, all day, just draining my life force. Because sometimes that's what it does, or that's definitely what it feels like.
Think of that, an open schedule. Do you need to be in certain places? If you do that's great, but when that's done can you go anywhere you want? Play in and out of that. Maybe there's a conference, you'd be at the conference, and then maybe you're off over here, and then maybe you're off over there. Then maybe you're gone a week to Bermuda and then back into Vancouver for another special event and then off you go. This is the flexibility, and this is kind of the fun of the adventure and the lifestyle that is possible if you seek it.
Carrying on a little deeper. This is about working remotely. Obviously, we've touched on this. The nomadic lifestyle is about working remotely, so what type of remote working tools do you have? Smart phone, mobile phone, laptop computer, if you're a vlogger or solopreneur or similar, video recording equipment, photography equipment, potentially. What else in alignment with that? File storage. A lot of the things that I also use for working remotely are cloud-based solutions tools, and similar for cloud-based organization, which means that in my pocket I don't need to really carry a ton of stuff. All of my stuff can be hosted on the cloud, I can pull it when I need it, I can collaborate it when I need it. Everyone can be all over the world and we plug in and contribute as we go fluidly in stride.
Really there's all kinds of tools for that, so keep an eye on my tool list as I share other great tools that are supportive of this lifestyle as I live it, and as I demonstrate how it works and the ways I do it. All kinds of great tools that, truly, the people you work with won't even feel you're gone by the way that you'll be able to connect in and collaborate and correlate as you go. Very very cool, and very important to explore the tools you use, and explore which ways those tools can be accessed from anywhere. Very great on a whole bunch of levels, these things, cloud-based solutions.
