Hello everybody! Web dev reporting in from Denmark.
I'm in the situation that I'm feeling too comfortable in my current situation. I have had the same job for 2.5 years now. A job that allow me to work with my preferred tech stack and which allow for remote work - two important factors in my opinion. Furthermore I have a short commute by car from my house that lies in the same city as my work. Everything is very convenient.
For the majority of people that might be a good situation to be in. However as a developer, we do have the option to work from any location. This option could unlock a new and exciting daily life. The ability to explore new countries, cities, people and places while getting work done could be a way to get out of that comfort zone.
A few factors to consider as I see it:
The trip could hurt one's productivity. A few examples on top of my head that may have influence:
- Struggle to find reasonable places to stay
- Feel like exploring rather than working
Timing is an important factor as well I reckon. Going abroad to work remote with a wife and kids at home can result in a complicated situation (Not relevant in my case).
Anyone else had the same feeling of "feeling too comfortable"?
If so, did you do anything about it? If so, did you decide to travel around the world and do something completely different to mix up your daily life?
If anyone is currently living the digital nomad lifestyle, feel free to share tips with everyone, would be much appreciated ✌️
