The most important type of freedom — and the one most overlooked — is time.
Time to work on what you love, create, play, master, connect and experience the world. It’s the most important because its the most finite resources we have. You can optimize your time, become more effective, more capable, but you can’t get back time spent.
The hard part for me is the tradeoffs: do you spend your time working on your job to earn money? Do you spend it on working on your dreams? Do you spend it on a beach? Or do you spend it doing things you dislike because you feel like you have to?
If resources were no object, what would you spend your time doing?
The automatic response is sipping piña colada on a beach somewhere. But that only lasts so long, then your real purpose sets in. If you could be doing anything in the world, what would you be doing right now.
The closer you can get your reality to line up to your dream, the more free you will feel.
Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
