Doing the thing in the moment

It is Sunday afternoon and I am drinking tea. Just sitting down to write. When I write, the topic has usually been made clear to me earlier in the day, or perhaps the day before.

But not today. These writing sessions are always the most interesting, because of a few reasons.

As you start, you have no idea what’s going to come out of your fingers. But you don’t want to go on with meaningless ramblings, so you force yourself to enter into a sort of flow state very quickly. You get better at it with practice.

Two days ago I stumbled upon a thread on Quora about writing advice. Someone said that you should never write about things you thought up beforehand. Everything you write should be in-the-moment writing, because everything that isn’t is a fabrication of ego.

First, I disagree with the use of the word ego, but I know what he means and I understand what he’s saying. I don’t agree though. All writing isn’t made equal.

Guest Post: “I wish I could travel like you do.” (You can)


Maneesh Sethi was kind enough to write up a guest post for us on striking off internationally and doing the digital nomad thing.

Every day, someone says to me: “I wish I could travel like you do.”

And every time I respond: “You can too.”

You see, I’ve been traveling for the last three years as a digital nomad, through Asia, South America, Europe. I move to a new city, learn a new language, and do a cool project. I built an online business that is completely outsourced, so now I can work as many---or as few----hours/week as I want.
