BN 090: The Prophet Returns! More Nomadic Philosophy Lessons
A few years back, Eli spent an episode dissecting the intro of The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. It's an incredible book, effortlessly taking a fresh approach to ideas that feel obvious... but maybe aren't.
In this episode, Eli expands his reach -- focusing on some of the core concepts introduced throughout the book (not just in the first chapter). Some truly illuminating ideas here, ideal for anyone wishing to reexamine their preconceived life stories.
BN 089: The Four Core Pillars of the Nomadic Lifestyle
How do you know if your nomadic life is on the right track?
Here, the answer to that question is a sort of metric system -- one that lets us organize the chaos of this lifestyle. For any location you're in, these pillars help you thoughtfully assess whether this location is actually giving you what you need.
And, to that point, these pillars are also a vehicle for self-reflection -- a chance to question the way you prioritize your nomadic values.
BN 088: How To Stay Productive While Traveling
When your environment keeps changing, it inevitably becomes more difficult to stay focused. The fluctuation and constant building of new routines is part of the digital nomad charm... But it's also one of our biggest challenges.
Here, Eli talks about his approach to building and keeping that focus in new locations -- including both practical tips & more general mindsets!
BN 087: The Power of Memory -- Photos, Journals, & Other Forms of Nostalgia
How do you record your experiences? Is it even an important part of appreciating what's around you? Or does it take you out of the experience and cheapen it?
In this episode, Eli & Dan discuss their approaches to remembering and looking back on their travels. We debate the importance of doing something now for your future self, the methods of memory capture that we find most meaningful, and the ways in which recording experiences can actually deepen their value.
