Doing Less

Today is Christmas, a day off from work, an opportunity to be with family, enjoy some down time and cook a tasty dinner. While our girls are home, I’ve purposefully let go of the need to drive the project forward – a difficult task for a sometimes workaholic like me!

It’s good practice because our next chapter will be less stressful by design. The camper will clean up in ten minutes because it’s small, the food shopping will be brief because we’ll be buying for 1-3 days of meals, and there won’t be snow to shovel, leaves to rake or wood to chop. In other words, the householder duties will diminish considerably. Hooray!

Hopefully, we will also reduce our expenses to half, though it may take some time for that to happen. That may mean fewer gigs or different types of gigs. We don’t know, yet.

Truly there is a lot we don’t know. And making friends with that fact is part of the adventure. We don’t know where we’ll be, how much we’ll make or what it will be like living in an RV full time.

The phrase “Let go. Let God.” is a mantra for us, a letting go of control or the illusion of it. As you can imagine, this is super hard for entrepreneurs. We’re accustomed to hustling and that, hopefully, is going to end.
