Traveling from one place to another as a digital nomad can easily lead to distractions. Especially because the excitement associated with travel strongly opposes the focus and dedication required to succeed in business. Staying balanced and productive is a challenge associated with quitting a 9-5 job and trying to survive independently.
The independence associated with not having to work in an office with certain rules and regulations to guide you literally means you can work anywhere you choose – a Coworking Space, the local café, or even on your bed. However, working from the comfort of your home may not be so great as you could easily get distracted. A Coworking Space, such as those easily found in Barcelona, is a great idea as you would easily find like-minded individuals who are only focused on work.
Whether you are traveling or not, setting daily goals, is a no-brainer for anyone who desires success. It’s ideal to prepare your daily tasks in the morning or even the night before. Carefully prioritize the more productive tasks to the ones that are less crucial to success. Even if you would be working at a Coworking Space, setting these goals will help you achieve the needed balance and remain productive along with those in your workspace.
While making the most of your schedule in country is important, a great idea is to forget the to-do list. It’s usually very easy to get caught up with daily routine activities as a digital nomad. When you constantly visit new places, it’s important to plan your time and set aside some time to unplug. If you’re working in a Coworking space in Barcelona for example, you have an opportunity to visit really exciting places such as the “Font Màgica” Fountain, the Picasso Museum, and the Camp Nou Stadium.
Always remember that traveling changes the way you work and it may be ideal to change your approach. To make the most of your time while working across the globe, it’d be great to open up your mind. Opening your mind to new people you meet and getting as much inspiration from new places. Most importantly, remain focused on your work – these qualities are crucial to achieving productivity and work/life balance.
