Bust A Move are posts focused on what Tyler and Megan are thinking and learning before, during and after their move to another country.
I understand what Megan and I are doing isn't normal. I mean, sure, it's not exactly novel (many friends have done something similar), but it's one of those things that makes people pause and congratulate you on your decision.
That's the same response they'd give when we got engaged—so I'm guessing this is a big life decision, too?
One of the ground rules Megan and I worked out once we bought our tickets was that if we were going to take a few months off, we had to travel with a goal in mind. And THAT'S what I'm afraid will come back to bite me...
If I get focused, I latch on. You know why alligators are deadly? Sure, they've got a chomp, but it's the latch after a chomp that'll git ya (#gatorfacts.)
I'm a latcher.
When it comes to projects, I LATCH and then roll over a couple times to make sure the antelope's dead (#mixedgatormetaphors?)
While freelancing, I pride myself on working without weekends. Even if it wasn't for a client, I'd always try to figure out ways to do something for my brand. I did this daily because I'm a firm believer in routine and "keeping momentum." But now, it feels like I'm setting myself up for months of nothing but weekends, and I bet a word like "routine" in Bali will get lost in translation.
There's this bipolar line I walk with my work / life balance where I'm either all in or I'm all out, and if I'm no longer working for the weekend (#loverboyfacts)…how do I earn one?
The good news is that once I figure it out, it'll result in some kickass content!
