Balance is a choice. As a full-time professional traveler, I live my life for a living. However, that means that most of what I do is re-directed into my brand, and thus re-directed into work. The funny thing is, I realized in college that I have always been just short of a workaholic. So I chose to re-direct my work into a career that makes me happy. Travel makes me happy. When you enjoy something very much, when you’re passionate about your choices in life, it doesn’t feel like work. Finding balance is about realizing that everything in life is a cost-benefit equation. The things that feel like work, make up for the ones that don’t; that, along with the right people and the understanding of when to let things go within that space, yields harmony. Think about it: You don’t have to know how to sing well to get a great song stuck in your head; similarly, you don’t have to know all the answers in life to find balance and happiness. This realization is what sets me free, it’s how I live my life and the advice I offer the world.
