Nomads Navigating Change

Above all when it comes to nomads navigating change freedom on the road comes with a cost. Find out more in Nomads-Navigating-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1007.

Embracing Change

Firstly when I made the decision to downsize into a 2000 Ford E450 ambulance I was embracing change in a big way.

New Life

Secondly I found a new life on the road.

And I love it.

Letting Go Of Old Life Can Be Difficult

But these days I’m having to let go of parts of my old life.

Struggle With The Old and New

Even more most nomads I am sure struggle with the old and the new.

Business Networking

Case in point. My business networking group.

Video Conferencing Platforms

To clarify one of the great changes was the adoption of video conferencing software.

Mobile Tech Means Flexibility

Certainly platforms like Zoom provide digital nomads with tremendous cost effective flexibility.

For Some It’s A Struggle

However some companies and groups struggle to integrate video conferencing and remote work into their operations.

On The Beach

Therefore we nomads often find ourselves ‘on the beach’ when decisions are made to do away with remote work options and video conference platforms in the day to day.

Buh Bye

Consequently I will be saying goodbye to a business networking group I’ve come to depend on.

Easy Come Easy Go On The Road

In short some might say ‘easy come…easy go’.

Emotional Effects Of Decisions

The surprise for me, is the discovery of how emotionally I was effected by this development.

Never Question

Most importantly I have never questioned my decision to become a digital nomad and ply America’s back roads.

Never Look Back

Best decision I ever made.

Doesn’t Make It Easier

But that doesn’t make it any easier when you have to say goodbye to people you care about and have loved working with.

Nomads Deal With Change Issues

Finally I know all digital nomads deal with these kinds of issues.

Crossroads Opportunity

Even more we find crossroads like this a challenge and opportunity for growth.

Not Easy

Doesn’t make it any easier.

Communications and Connectivity

To sum up communications options and connectivity have never been better or easier.

My Mobile Internet Is Rad

To clarify I’m going to explain how my new mobile internet connection works flawlessly.

Better Mobile Tech Every Day

Therefore it’s too bad when groups and companies don’t realize mobile tech is getting better and better every day.

Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977

Rolling With The Changes

Firstly there’s a lot of change and we’re rolling with the changes. Especially when there is a family emergency. Learn more in Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977.

Abrupt Change Happens In Everyone’s Life

Secondly abrupt and surprising developments visit everyone sooner or later.

Flexibility Is Called For

Most importantly you have to be flexible enough to deal with abrupt change, even when you’re nomad.

Not Easy

Certainly I was having a great time. From Minnesota to the Gulf Coast, across the desert to Southwestern Arizona.

Plans Shift and Things Change

Even more, I had plans to head further west to an big off road race in Johnson County, California.

Things Happen

But things happen, as they say.

Whatever It Takes

Above all when your family is in crisis you have to do whatever you can.

Nomad Travel Rewind

In my case that required me to rewind all my travels in just a few days.

Interstate Driving

Subsequently I drove East on the I-10 to I-17 North, to 40 East all the way from Arizona to Virginia, and then I-85 North to the Richmond area.

All A Blur

As a result there were a lot of truck stop stays which I don’t remember. In addition a number of sights that were a blur, like the Cadillac Ranch.

Marathon Trek

In fact I didn’t even think to record anything for this podcast in Mobile Podcast while making that marathon trek.

Massive Change

Finally the point here is that we’re going through massive change. Some will applaud the changes. Others will not.

Flexible Enough To Roll With The Changes

Likewise as I have pointed out in many recent podcasts, during periods of intense change and challenge, one has to be able to roll with the changes.

To sum up, flexibility is required.

Attached To Outcomes?

For example right now I am dealing with a number of strong and independent personalities, myself included. Being rigid and attached to a certain outcome doesn’t really help in this environment. I’ll explain in Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977.

Listen And Learn More

In conclusion clearly there’s something going on here. You’ll have to listen to find out.

Rules For WalkandTalk Podcast

Firstly, rules for the walk and talk podcast are no preparation and no plan. Just walking and talking. Time to take a break from the surreal world we live in. Join me on the walk in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Throw The Plan Out

Secondly, I did have some things I thought I would talk about in this podcast. As soon as I got outside I threw all of that out.

Switch On Summer

Above all, we’re having a warm beginning of June here in the Upper Midwest. We don’t take that lightly.

Back In The Day

On the other hand it’s still hard for me to believe that 75 days ago we were living ‘normal’ lives.

What’s Next?

These days there’s a surreal quality to everything. Consequently we don’t have a sense of where things are headed. How any of this will play out is anyone’s guess.

No Predictions Here

Above all there is my firm commitment not to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or how we should proceed. Everyone is going to have to come to their own conclusions.

Living Through Difficult Times

Certainly I wonder how people felt during times of upheaval in history. Subsequently I am sure few of those people ‘knew’ where ‘things’ were going or how it would turn out.

Sure Hope Something Else Doesn’t Happen!

For example someone remarked to me in a networking session this week, “I sure hope something else doesn’t happen!”.

Likewise I am sure.

Midnight Walk In The Moonlight Cures Just About Anything

Finally my antidote for angst about the future and the crisis we’re all living through is a midnight walk in the moonlight. Even during a curfew it works wonders every time.

Walk…And Talk

In short, join me while I take a walk and talk about some new audio equipment, the surreal times we’re living through and more in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.
