A Long List Of Excuses
I guess I could title this list “topics you should not contemplate in public after launching your own business“, but most people do know me well enough to understand that I occasionally take off on an philosophical tangent… and that this does not stop me from working hard. I’d say that it’s just a coincident though you could argue that things usually do happen for a reason… it’s just that recently I came across a few stories of people travelling the world and particularly one couple from Argentina who went on travelling for more than 17 years in a Graham Paige from 1928 and had 4 children on the way. In their book they describe that started the journey with little preparation and only the desire to make their dream come true.
Before you ask, I’d love to travel the world and see all those marvellous places, meet people, eat street food everywhere. But their dream was their dream and my dream is my dream and it’s different. Yet, what stops me from getting me, Ana and Gabriel in the car, turn the key and set off into the sunrise?
Last but not least, I love what I’m doing. I can’t switch off my creativity. I love the industry I’m working in and I enjoy working with the people I meet through my profession, be it clients, project managers, suppliers, other designers. I enjoy the direct interaction, even in stuffy meeting rooms and with bad coffee. In our day and age, can I do my job remotely, balancing my Macbook on my knees, fast internet connection provided, sitting on a beach on the other side of the world? Forgetting about the ins and outs of video conferences, technically that shouldn’t be a problem. But seriously? No thanks.
