The mentality we adopt when travelling is very similar to that of a startup business. Traveling is externally focused. Outward bound.

In a previous post I mentioned how this mentality would make us so much more effective in our daily work and life. And it will.

Are frequent travellers more effective at getting things done in general? Is there a correlation between frequent travelling and starting up new businesses?

There is a downside of course. We all know that travelling costs us more - more money, more effort - than staying at home.

Settling down in one place is internally focused. Inward bound.

The greater predictability of a settled routine allows us to set up processes and systems to reduce costs and minimise effort, like an established business.

I guess like with everything else, there is a time to travel (start a business) and to stay home (run a business.)
