Why you shouldn't work from the beach
I was scrolling through Google last week and was searching for my Passive Income competition - almost without fail, they all preach the Passive Income dream as Working From the Beach!
My friends, this is not the central image we need of flexible work. This is not what we should have in mind when it comes to location independence or getting more done. And this image certainly has nothing to do with balance.
Just because you can work from anywhere doesn't mean you should work from anywhere. My Passive Income goals include having the ability to work from anywhere in the world, including the beach - however, the beach is a terrible place to work from on a laptop.
Beaches were made for sand castles, seashells, and checking out the hotties in bikinis, not for you checking your reports from your laptop. Beaches are there for us to contemplate the immensity of our world and to get lost in the beauty of nature. No one wants to see you check stocks while you apply sunscreen.
Sand and laptops, not a good mix, sun-cream will mess up your screen, and lets not talk about over-heating - you'll half your laptop batteries life.
So please, get your work done and then come outside to play with us. We really don't want to crack your screen with our football.
