I recently started reading Chris Guillebeau’s blog on The Art of Non-Conformity: Unconventional strategies for life, work and travel and have found it really interesting and thought-provoking. It is challenging me to think about what I really want to do and where I want to be going. I have some ideas, but nothing concrete yet, as it’s tied into my previous comments about who I am and the balance of free time and money.
I’ve heard it said before that everyone needs a balance of security and uncertainty in the different aspects of their life and I can certainly see that is true over the last few years.Previously I’ve felt that things were veering too much towards the uncertain end of the spectrum for compfort, but now I wonder if (especailly outside of work) they are heading a bit too much the other way. Which is a good thing and yet makes me wonder if I need to re-evaluate what I want out of life.
I have a few ideas of things to change and different things to do, that are maybe a bit unconventional and more risky, and I shall see how they go. I’m not going to say what yet, but if they suceed I shall write more details.
