So, I’ve been going through some incredible life changes lately. A few weeks back I got married and went on a honeymoon cruise. Last week both my new bride and I started brand new jobs. On top of everything, my wife has been moving into my already “cozy” apartment. It’s a odd/surreal/incredible time right now.
While my wife and I were cruising around the Caribbean, I was forced to leave my computer at home. In hindsight, it was probably the best decision that I could have made. I typically use my laptop at least 8 hours a day, and not having it with me gave me a fresh perspective. Not only that, it gave me a Eureka! moment that showed me just how unproductive I really am in front of a computer (more on that later).
While on the cruise I managed to do a lot of good old fashioned paper-based writing, and man was it therapeutic. I had an awesome time just being creative without the constraints of a keyboard in front of me.
Over the course of the cruise, I managed to learn something incredible at every country visited. So, armed with a pen and notebook (and incredible ship balcony views), I managed to write a four posts on separate lessons learned, in each country. I’ll be publishing each of these posts throughout this week and the next, to help me get back into the swing of writing for this great community.
So that’s what I’ve been up to, and that’s what’s going to be going on for the next few weeks at LifeDev.
Oh, and as a bonus: I’m polishing a monster of an ebook that I’ll be giving away 100% free to LifeDev readers. It’s taken me a while to write it, and I hope it’s worth the wait. Stay tuned.
