You need to take a break

If you want to visit the world, or any other country, the best way, by far, is to get yourself into a Location Free Lifestyle. You can do it from any age (there are plenty of teenagers and retirees doing this) and there are more resources out there than ever before.

You still work really, really smart (smart, not hard remember), but you also get to choose exactly where you wake up each morning.

But …. one of the biggest problems you’ll face is that although you imagine everyday will become a weekend, in fact every day becomes a weekday!

Usually this isn’t much of a problem because as soon as you’ve done your work for the day, you’re now in an amazing new location to explore!

But sometimes you do just have to switch off. Get rid of the WiFi, Wimax or LTE and just go off the grid for a few days.

Yes it is really, really scary! The first time I did it it was for me too. But once you get used to it, you realise that the world won’t fall down if you don’t check your emails. And more importantly, you realise that your email inbox isn’t the centre of the universe!

It gives you a whole new perspective on the goals of your company, and what you are wanting to achieve.

So I would totally recommend getting away from any 3G signal, even just for a couple of days to get your email stress meters properly reset!

This January I did this on the Hollyford Track in New Zealand, which has to be one of the most amazing adventures in the world. If you’re up for it, do check out their site at

Good luck and remember to take some time off!

Be genki,

    Hi, Richard, Thanks for sharing your life, your wisdom, your heart. The more I get to know about you, the move I admire you. You’re an inspiration! If I were near you now, I would want to give you a big hug!! hehehe. I’m thinking about taking a small holiday from stressful Japan with my 8 yr old daughter during summer, school holidays. I was thinking about Cuba.. before it gets spoiled by all the Americanisms. It should be fairly cheap, too, which is a must for me to be able to afford. Of course NZ sounds great, and I know nice people, too. Good luck, good work and take care! Btw, you look slimmer (and healthy) on this video.
