I’m currently on vacation on an island in Norway. I’m living in a tent by the ocean, and so far, I’ve had a fantastic time. I’ve written about my vacation on this island before, in posts like this one, where I wrote about what I’m doing at 9 pm, and this one, where I wrote about why I’m walking 30 minutes to be online. I’m writing this post at close to 10 pm, and I can still see the sun, it’s an incredible feeling (this picture was taken about 7 pm).
I am working every single day
The reason I’m writing this post, is that I want to focus on how I’m working during my vacation. I’m a solopreneur, and even though I could have stopped working during my vacation, I am still working. But, I’m not doing as much work as I usually do. And, I’m doing things differently.
I’m focusing on spending time with my family. But, I’m still working a few hours every single day. I’m working less, and I try to tell my family when I’ll be working; when I’ll be leaving and when I’ll be back. I work in a different location every day. Sometime inside, at a public library, the town hall or a restaurant. Other times, I work outside, at the top of a mountain, inside a forest or on the beach.
I am using my iPad mini, my MacBook Pro, my iPhone or just paper. It all depends where I am and what I’m doing. I’m mostly doing creative work, and that’s because I’m more relaxed when I’m on vacation, than when I’m at the office. And, I’m reading a lot more than I’m used to. I’m reading posts, ebooks and articles on my iPad and I’m reading regular books.
At the moment, I’m almost finished reading The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin. I’ll probably write a review soon.
Are you working during your vacation?
