The lifestyle design community tends to think about lifestyle design as something that involves working online. I personally am working towards supporting myself by working online, as are all the bloggers I know.
In “real life” however, I rarely meet people who actually earn a living online. For example, in Mexico we’ve met dozens of people who aren’t rich or retired and who live down here for 3-6 months each year. None of those people earn a living online. I’ve written about many of them and their unconventional lifestyles before.
I would love to find out from all of you whether your lifestyle design is funded (or will be funded) by online or offline income. If you have a second, please answer the poll below. If you have details you’d like to share in addition to your answer, you can also leave a comment.
Please answer twice, once for how you CURRENTLY earn a living, and once for how you PLAN TO earn a living.
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
The Work and The Results are two different things. You can’t say “I want to do the results.” You can only say “I’m going to do the work.” You might want to accomplish the results, but results only happen because of the work you do.
