on the road -- day 9: 10 day freedom plan blog challenge

working on the road
This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 9

In my own way, I'm already happily location independent. I do find myself having to catch up after I return to a home base sometimes. When I'm on the road, I don't keep up with any work. I don't keep up with exercise goals. I sometimes find myself screaming from one place to another because of poor planning on my part.

Natalie's challenge, then, is to create a day of adventure and fun that includes keeping everything running, as well. This is where I'm at. This is my own current struggle.

For exercise, I've set the goal of stopping every 60 miles or so and walking. I don't always do that. Sometimes it's from laziness. Other times it's from poor planning and needing to keep going. I also find myself scared to try certain walks or hikes because of my current physical limitations.

For work, I find myself starting with the premise that driving is good for clearing my mind and getting thinking done. Then I let my mind wander aimlessly, or listen to the radio. It's good for a while, but I feel I can plan in more productive activities while I drive. I can practice recording stories with no audience present, for example. I can plan ahead and have books and podcasts lined up waiting to teach and inspire.

Finally, I find lack of internet makes me incredibly lazy. I feel I can't do anything. I can! I can again record video and audio practice sessions, or even final versions. I can write and write and write.

What should help me pull all this together is the goal from day 8 of reviewing my projects daily and choosing three big tasks to accomplish each day. No matter where I'm at, this can always happen. Yes it can!
