To be effective at lifestyle engineering, we need space in our lives, but if our lives are so jam-packed with family responsibilities, work requirements, and the demands of life that we feel constantly overwhelmed, then it will be very challenging to make good decisions about our lifestyle engineering options.
One of the best ways to fine-tune and test options is with a remote job. When you remove the daily commute, meaningless office chitchat, and mindless meetings, you are left with lots of free time on your hands. Along with the flextime that many remote gigs afford, you can now work when and where you want.
With this space, you can start building the foundation for the kind of career you want–one where you will be in demand even more, allowing you to become more selective about the type of work you do and your terms for doing it.
Living the dream is a viable possibility, but most people get bogged down in the details of work and life well before they can realize their dream. If you’re having challenges making space in your life with your current development job, you’re not alone.
By using the experiences of others, you can avoid the roadblocks that stand between where you are now and where you’d like to be.
