We always wondered why work starts at 9 am and ends at 5 pm, why doesn’t it start at 3pm?
Or why do we have to wait until 5 pm to go home even when there is no work anymore, even when it’s obvious that we are just counting seconds instead of doing something productive.
We do know that in a lot of jobs it is necessary to work 9-5. But in a lot of other jobs it doesn’t matter when we start or end our work, the only important thing is what we get done during the day.
Because a lot of people don’t want that lifestyle they decide to do a gap year to see the world and travel more. They don’t want to miss out on that because they think it’s the only chance to travel the world. They don’t want to regret anything later.
Actually, I just found a book. I don’t remember the name right now, but it was about a nurse who interviewed people before they died. She asked everyone the same question: “What do you regret the most?”.
And most of the people replied the same. And that answer is what changed our lifes.
They said “I regret that I worked to much, that i didn’t see my family enough, and that I didn’t do the thingsI wanted to do”
If we see that answer how can we expect that the normal 9-5 life can make us happy?
Do we see our Family enough? No we don’t. You see your colleges more than your 3 year old baby. We never miss the extra hours in our jobs but we miss the first steps of our kids.
Do we have enough freedom to do what we want? No, Because we just have 30 days of holidays per year.
A lot of people see the gap year as their escape. But, why do we think that it would make sense to do just for a year whatever we want and afterwards returning to a life we don’t like?
But what about making money?
Yes I know, you need money to survive, we all need that.The good thing is that we are lucky enough to live in a wold where making money is easier than it ever was before.
We are big believers that anyone should do whatever makes them happy, and more and more people agree on that.
So, nowadays we have people living an eternal gap year, or gap life. These are what are also known as Digital Nomads, or whichever name you want to give them. These people are actually living the life most of us dream of.
So the key to that life is earning money online. If you earn your money online you can do whatever you want from anywhere you want.
We really believe that if you have a hobby, a passion, you are able to make money with it online. Even if it’s just 1000$ it will give you the freedom to start doing whatever you want. It will be the first step to get financial freedom. The first step to being independent and don’t having to relay on a employer.
You will see how this changes and this type of life will affect your thinking. You’ll notice that you have more time to do the things you really like. It is possible that you might even discover things that you didn’t know you liked because you never had the time to try them.
So don’t be afraid to think outside the box. It is your life so live it like you want and not like other people dictated you to.
