What is work, what is play?

Arman Assadi: Why I left Google
I am often asked how I pay the bills...surely I must have another job. Like a job that I hate. A job that makes it possible to do the one I love. There must be something "holding you down". Something that makes it all work. So what is it?

So when I stumbled across this story this morning I realized that travel should never stand in front of work. It is so easy now, as long as optimal email communication is maintained, to work while learning and traveling the world abroad. I guess I do have another job, but it is very travel-friendly. This has helped me learn from my experiences and pursue passions that I find enriching, now evolving into a lifestyle where the difference between my work and leisure, pursuit of recreation and information, and development of mind and body, are indistinguishable. I am still far from a sustainable living, but at least I feel I've made headway.

Learn more about Arman's international adventure and his five lessons from abroad in his piece titled "Why I left Google".

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.”.
