Independence: the fact or state of being independent

Independent: free from outside control; not subject to another’s authority

Day 9: Balance your adventure and work while you are away on a long holiday.

What would I do if I was in paradise for a month but I had to combine it with work? I feel like being a bit practical with this one.

So here are 6 things I would do:

1. I would definitely make sure I had my laptop with me and that I stayed somewhere with easy access to wifi, preferably a nice hotel.

2. I would plan as much of my holiday as possible in advance so that I have an idea what I am going to be doing every day.

3. I would do an initial itinerary and share it with my team, so that they know when I am contactable.

4. I would also make a list of the work I am expected to be doing and be aware of any deadlines. Be organised and efficient.

5. I am not working every day, so that I make the most of any excursions or activities I choose to do in paradise, without worrying about work.

6. Besides. My team is the best team!

In a few words, I would like to have a team that I can trust and I would try to be prepared as much as possible in advance so that I will not have to compromise neither my holiday or my work.

Location independence for me is not necessarily just about the place I work from, I think for me is more about being able to organise my time in such a way that I am more efficient and have a better work-life balance.

And that’s my day 9 challenge post.

Feel free to share and comment.
