Stability Mar 26

I hate routine. But I need stability and time predictability to do my job well.
When I'm out and about, I prefer to absorb the experience and not keep work at the back of my mind.

I was a digital nomad for some 15 years, flying at least once a month between Brussels (where my professional activity was) and Lisbon (where my family was). Besides that I loved traveling and used to do it as a tourist at least twice a year (Easter and Summer holidays) until one day I got so tired of airports and planes that I evolved into… a digital hermit!

Hermit Mar 26

After many years of traveling, I'm very happy to be a hermit.

I would like to be a nomad Mar 26

I love coworking and I would like to work from co-working places around the world but getting older I need a very big screen which makes things more difficult ...

Hermit with full conviction Mar 27

Being a hermit is the only way to work properly. I'm sorry if I don't agree with the mobile world, not for professional purposes, certainly not for our profession. It's great to be in contact with clients full time and be able to quote and accept jobs anywhere. But not to work. Not at all.
