Life without Sirius has me listless. It was one of my projects where I had a regular deadline. Without it, life is a bit more like limbo. After my capoeira class oday, I spent wandering downtown Austin, wasting time on the web, etc.
It’s strange to be on your own schedule, working at pretty much your own pace, and on own your own goals, the whole time. It’s in massive contrast to the nine-to-five lifestyle that my parents lived, and are still living as a matter of fact. How will it impact the way I feel about my life, and my achievements, longterm? I don’t know.
It’s a pretty interesting lifestyle, though. I make podcasts, blog, have one great client, and otherwise work on whatever I decide I want to. But it reminds me of what Tim Ferriss said at SXSW this year (a good dude despite his somewhat sketchy front page)– once you’re not packed with work every day, you need to fill it with other things that create value for you. This is still hard for me– I’m still having trouble, but I intend to work it out.
