I am halfway through my first ever private consulting job and its been a revelation to us. It suddenly seems feels feasible to cruise
indefinitely, unbound by the need for a land-based employment
The major challenges we can see are stable internet
connections, mobile phone
coverage, occasionally needing to be in striking distance of transport/airport to commute for a meeting, and calm anchorages
without too many distractions. The benefits are enormous, and living our lifestyle is now so simple and costs so little that the pressure to work 11 months of the year is completely gone now.
For people like us, for whom cruising is not about escaping the world but rather finding a better way to live in it, it feels like a sustainable, balanced approach. We're really excited about the future!
I'd love to hear from others about their experiences telecommuting and working remotely. What do you love? What are the challenges?
In the meantime, here is a photo
taken from my office window last week ... yeah, I hate myself a little bit too
