Being a digital nomad is something that everybody should try. I mean, I know is not for everybody, but if you want to do it, you should do it before you regret it.
Last time I wrote something here I was in a phase of my career and my life where I felt like I didn’t know what’s next step to take.
Maybe that’s the main reason I started learning Machine Learning, but I lost interest because, I realized that I didn’t want to be chasing all the new trends, every time that a new technology or a new framework comes out.
I was in love with my job, working on a successful startup where I wrote the first line of code, where I was the first employee and I saw how it grow from 3 people on a cozy 15 m2 (161 ft2) office to 30 people, 3 countries, and multiple floor offices.
I felt like shit for 4-5 months, I was angry all the time, didn’t have the motivation to work on any development related projects, even my for my own. I didn’t want to continue learning new things and I didn’t want to contribute to the growing of the company.
What’s the purpose of my life?
I was gifted with time, with freedom of choice, I learned about the hot stuff that everybody in the world is using, and yet I was decided to give it to people that are careless about what I want.
I started to watch videos about people walking the world, reading blogs about the subject, and following Instagram accounts with gorgeous photos and videos about the adventure that life is.
Here I’m, 4 months after quitting Whyline in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, 10000km away from home, working at my own time, away from 9-5 office fixed schedule And I’m moving to Playa del Carmen, Mexico next week, and I never feel so alive.
