Who among us does not dream of an endless vacation, working from the beach or a cafe somewhere far away?
And yet, most people have not packed up their bags and moved to work from an endless vacation. Fact is, most of us still prefer to work from an office that has four walls, because it is just more convenient. Even working from home requires a lot of self-discipline and the ability to concentrate on work for long enough without distractions.
The good news is that today our corporate culture is starting to change for the better—especially in the technology sector—and many employers understand that in a few years it will no longer be possible to ignore employee’s demands not to be confined to their office chair.
If this is your dream, try it out for a few months, and see if you can be effective while working remotely. Choose a destination you think is right for you in terms of time differences, and that you can combine personal life and work with.
Choose a place with good internet infrastructure, as well as access to regular flights in case you need to return to your country at short notice.
If it works, you can take a deep breath and start living the dream.
