A Quick Lesson From a Free Spirited Freelancer

So I have been at my current job for about 3 months now and I work with great people, each one has a unique talent and I am continuing learning something from them.

Just in the past 4 weeks I have been working along side a coworker from overseas we’ll call him Jim and he has been our design freelancer long before I cam aboard the company, so he was invited to come on a work Visa in the office and meet with us all.

Jim and I have been talking about life situations and the general stuff most freelance traveling types talk about…life. One day I asked him about living the way he does, works as a design freelancer, travels around to work on projects with various companies and has no general interest in working with the company other than to create great products and work on things that really matter to him

His mentality about how he lives his life made so much sense to me and more natural than what I have been spoon fed about how our society interprets living.

His current idea of success is living basic, not material, not living with an accumulation of stuff and material possessions.

Working to live and enjoy the life during his youth and not waiting to be older and retired to finally live.

Having a passion to explore and meet new people and get out of your comfort zone.

I took some time to look at myself and not try to compare but to try to understand the way I think about the world as I know it.

Jim sent me this inspiring YouTube video yesterday which sums up the way he thinks. You may have seen this one it’s been around a while. If you haven’t seen it either way take a moment to listen to this guy’s experience.

My admiration for out of the box free thinkers like Jim will help me stay focused and motivated. I hope this video inspires you too.
