Tips on How to Live and Work Like You’re Always on Vacation

Long days, limited free time and living paycheck to paycheck is all part of being successful. Or is it? Have you ever considered what it would be like to live every day – and work – like you are constantly on vacation? What would that even look like?

Think about it for a moment. What does the ideal vacation look like to you? More than who we see, where we go, or what we do, most of us remember how we feel on vacation. We live moment to moment. We stop holding onto things that are bothering us. We look at each new opportunity as a gift. Thus, it all comes down to a change in mindset.

Everyone has the potential to live and work like they are always on vacation. It simply requires a change of perspective. The following tips will help you achieve this:

Envision Your Goals

Before you can work towards this “permanent vacation”, you must first identify what your goals are. Who do you love to be around the most? If you could live anywhere, where would it be? What kind of work are you so passionate about that time flies by? What are you constantly trying to learn new things about? Allow yourself to dream for a moment. You have the ability to create a whole new normal for yourself. What will it be?


Once you have decided what it is you desire the most, the next step is to commit. Stop working to live and live life instead. That being said, be prepared for obstacles to arise. Your vision will likely not happen overnight. The key is to keep your eye on the prize and let go of limiting beliefs and fears.

Only Make Inspired Decisions

What is your ‘why’? If you do not know the reason why you are doing something, it will not take long before your commitment fades and you become distracted. Each decision you make should be driven by the answer to that question. Once you have determined your ‘why’, it is time to take action. Do you want to be an entrepreneur? Fill your spare time with businesses courses, hire a business coach, find a mentor and put together your business plan.

Surround Yourself with the Right People           

As they say, show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future. The most successful people surround themselves with confident, committed and likeminded individuals. Create a team of people who are supportive of your aspirations and honest when you need advice.
