The digital nomad lifestyle is based on a simplified life where we focus on the essentials. Thus, the goal is to be able to live wherever you want in the world with a computer as your only tool. In this type of life there is geographic freedom and financial freedom. Financial freedom allows geographic freedom, even if you have to be able to optimize it to choose the places where you want to live.This type of life is obviously not for everyone, but it is suitable for people who want a different life, outside the system, with different life goals. The life of a digital nomad highlights the simplicity of everyday life. There is no longer any social pressure, there is no longer an obsession with material goods. The minimalist attitude is put forward to be able to live with little. As a digital nomad, it is possible to live with all of your possessions in a 15 kg bag. The goal is thus not to take the head any more with all the things which are wastes of time, to focus on the success of professional objectives or personal choices.
This lifestyle allows you to focus on the essentials, ie on experiences and things of value. Indeed all the really material part passes in the second plan. It is my conception of things. This way of life allows you not to spend your time on material goods, to spend your time in the shops or to constantly have to solve problems related to the material. The way of life is simplified, the system is simplified, and so are the expectations. The goal is not to live in good conditions. The goal is to live in good conditions with a good salary, without using this money in material opulence.
Medium term focus
Focusing on the medium term is important to optimize your success but also to better take advantage of the moments. In Western societies, there is often too much long term thinking with a regular planning vision over decades. At the same time, in some countries, the vision is very short term, often with a very short term day to day vision. This is why, in this way of life, I advise a happy medium with a short to medium term vision. Work on goals over a few years, and also enjoy the present moments. Letting yourself be locked into very long term projects does not allow you to achieve this lifestyle, and to create a life of choice. Take inspiration from different countries to create an interesting and coherent mix in this lifestyle.
Get out of the system
One of the other key points of your way of life is to focus on your system of life and not on the system of life offered to us by society. Social pressure and other good thoughts, that’s all you need to forget to succeed and feel good about this way of life. Getting out of the system, getting out of political and other beliefs. Believe in yourself and not in what you want to believe, or what social pressures suggest. Of course, we often have to forget a certain number of things that we have been taught, we must also be able to rise above that. Life is not made to create problems related to systems, but precisely to simplify it so as not to create problems. I can tell you that the results can be impressive, both personally and financially.
