I quit my job and plan to travel to India and other places. I have a job with a salary of 4000 USD per month. I have no interest in work and all I want to do is travel. Is this a wrong decision?

No. A good idea. Make the most of your trip, whether in India or anywhere else in the world.

Take notes, take photos, make videos.

I love to travel, I have traveled a fair amount of trips in and out of India, I still yearn for more. From north to south, from east to east of India I have done it. So best of luck

Next year planning to go to Iran.

You can watch videos on your travel tube, also some Ted talks, of people who traveled without a single dollar in their pocket.

A husband and wife traveled from Delhi to Bhopal in 15 days for just Rs 64 per day for both of them including travel, accommodation and food. It must have been a challenge

A husband and wife traveled from Delhi to Bhopal in 15 days for just Rs 64 per day for both of them including travel, accommodation and food. It must have been a bit challenging, it was an experience.

A family traveled from Mumbai to London by car traveling about 22,000 km in 75 days, vis northeast, mynmar, thailand, laos, cambodia, vietnam, china, turmenistan, etc., to hunfary, germany, france to London.

It will be very interesting.

Stay in touch with me to share your travel experiences.

Post your trip, you will probably accept different types of jobs and they may offer jobs to others.

There are so many jobs that are related to your passion, try to earn that job, so that your life travels with your passion. I think you should never quit work, try to plan your life with your passion and life needs a job, so try to find a job that relates to your passion. I think that today the thriving sector in India is tourism, meanwhile do a correspondence degree in tourism and plan for it.

The decision is not bad! You can try WWOfing in India to learn a socially responsible lifestyle to upload your top stories before anything else like a 'constant source of income' draws you in. You can not only think about traveling but also blogging as a travel writer and start paying your blogs for your travels in India nowadays too. The options are limitless only if you put your mind and active karma into it ........

This will look good until you have the money. The point is: can you win by traveling?
Not now, enjoy for 3 months or 6 months, but then you have to start earning something to support yourself. If you can win something you have passion for. Then go ahead, if not, go and come back.

I am 38 years old, I plan to quit my job and travel around my country (India) on the road. Will I regret doing this? - A good question. Thanks for A2A.


Well, it's a personal choice with passion combined with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do what you wanted to do in your life.

Many people in the past had given up their beautiful life and their jobs to seek answers, what they were trying to find out in their lives and others had done to understand people and solve their problems, and few others had done it just for the sake of it. pleasure. And no one had regretted doing it !!(However I don’t know what your purpose of this road

I am 38 years old, I plan to quit my job and travel around my country (India) on the road. Will I regret doing this? - A good question. Thanks for A2A.


Well, it's a personal choice with passion combined with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do what you wanted to do in your life.

Many people in the past had given up their beautiful life and their jobs to seek answers, what they were trying to find out in their lives and others had done to understand people and solve their problems, and few others had done it just for the sake of it. pleasure. And no one had regretted doing it !!(However I don’t know what your purpose of this road trip fits in?)

But before making this passion come true. You need to take notes or have some things ready. And that is called PLAN.

Few questions you need to answer yourself as it is your own crazy idea and no one will support you, especially your spouse / girlfriend, parents and close relatives, friends, telling you that you are stupid. Well, putting that noise aside.

Some questions to answer yourself:

  1. What is the objective of this trip. Just to satisfy your pleasure or if you have some business acumen on your mind later on, plan to gain experience now with this trip to learn different cultures of India and then add value to this trip.
  2. Can your savings and funds be enough to sustain you without having to borrow from banks or your noisemakers (family and relatives)? If you ask them for funds, they demotivate you and you can't enjoy your next destination.
  3. Are you planning to travel just to get to know yourself better or are you traveling with your co-founder?
  4. India is vast, so what cities and places do you have on your wish list to visit and learn about India? Also what is the underlying subject you want to learn about (poverty, politics, religious places, business world, fashion world, corruption or heritage culture, etc.). Write it down. (Not just India, anywhere you want to travel in any mode of travel)
  5. Based on the list made in point 4, you can visit these places to study well and talk to people useful for your purpose (such as research).
  6. How much of the time do you plan this trip, such as summer, steep winter, strong monsoon, etc. Because you need to carry things necessary for your survival such as medicines, clothes, etc. India is a tropical country, so you have to take into account its extreme weather conditions.
  7. Lastly, how long do you plan to travel. As Stephen Covey 1 said, everything has a purpose and in the end it has an end. This is very important.

If you can answer all these questions, in addition to any other questions that have occurred to you. Then you're ready!

Once everything is ready, continue without receiving approval from anyone.

But make sure that if you have immediate responsibilities like paying off bank loans you previously took out, paying the education fee for your siblings / children, or the medical care for your parents, that you make the necessary arrangements before you leave. Because these insignificant things create a lot of headaches when you learn new things in your wanderlust.

Life is an endless learning process, and this method is just one of them.

Good luck!!

We live on one income, although we are a 2-income family.

My husband earns less money than I do and it is from his salary that we live. Mine is invested or put into savings accounts and always has been. My husband invests in his 401K, up to his employer's matching contribution. It's not necessary, but if we ever get divorced, he may need it.

We live on one income, although we are a 2-income family.

My husband earns less money than I do and it is from his salary that we live. Mine is invested or put into savings accounts and always has been. My husband invests in his 401K, up to his employer's matching contribution. It's not necessary, but if we ever get divorced, he may need it.

Would I like a fancy car? Some days, I daydream about getting one and think I should buy one. I even go online and design what I want. My husband encourages me to do it and always asks me 'Why not?' I always answer in the same way. "I don't need it. The car I bought for less than $ 5,000 gets me from point A to B just as well as that car for almost $ 60,000 would." "But it doesn't give the same impression." The last time I wrote a check for an investment, I didn't ask what kind of car the person was driving.

Would I like a bigger house? Maintaining this little place we live in makes me dread the idea of ​​more rooms, more land, more taxes, more anything. Also, a bigger house would mean more trash storage space and my husband has enough of that now. It will also be too quiet, too big, and too empty when the kids move on.

Life would be easier if we lived on both incomes. We would have more than we wanted. But when we look at how we work for 30 years to get to this point and what we have saved may have to last us another 30 years, it wouldn't change a thing. I plan to be lazy when I retire. I deserve it. It's quite a reminder that I need to pay every day when I decide what to do with my paycheck.

Which reminds me that I should win it again. I can be lazy when I retire.

  • Barcelona - Spain: I lost my check-in for my 'stowaway' luggage after flying just to get a tattoo. Then I decided to go live in Lausanne instead of Amsterdam, since my partner was there. I got on a plane 4 hours later


But would I do it again?

Traveling that is ...

Every time

If the work environment is toxic and causes mental health problems, yes. Whenever you feel like you can avoid going hungry or homeless in the two weeks to six months it will take you to find another job. You do not get unemployment benefits if you quit. If you are fed up with work due to physical, mental or sexual abuse, leave immediately. No landlord's paycheck or rent is worth that.

Do not be sad. While employers are more than happy to ask you for a 2 week notice and imply that they will trash another employer if you don't, most don't lose sleep at night and fire you without notice.

Do not be sad. While employers are more than happy to ask you for a 2-week notice and imply that they will trash another employer if you don't, most don't lose sleep at night and fire you without notice for justifiable or insignificant reasons. .

That said, some employers don't share the sympathy for this. They have HR software that automatically kills any app that doesn't show current job. They feel that if you leave a place, you will leave them the moment something becomes unpleasant, since most "jobs" have at least some unpleasant things about them. Or worse yet, you feel like you don't "need" a job and can't motivate you.

If possible, try to find another job while keeping this one. You will bypass the filters of HR software, you will have no worries about where your money is going to come from and other headaches.

This can be difficult if you really have to BE at work when most people are interviewing. What I did when I was in a situation like that is call late when I had another interview. If you are concerned about employer retaliation for seeking another job, please do not contact and explain your concerns to the other potential employer. Most will agree with this. If not, it could be a sign that you are jumping out of a pan into the fire.

Most of the working class want to quit their day job, but the reality is that it is a difficult thing to do.

It reminds me of a quote from Nassim Nicholas Taleb: "The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates, and the monthly salary."

We get an SMS every payday and it releases a chemical called dopamine and we feel rewarded for our efforts.

It keeps us glued to that job!

Some people dare or circumstances allow them to quit their job and begin their entrepreneurial journey.

But the fact is that 90% of independent small business establishments close within one year of operations and the remaining 10% within the next 5 years.

The example above is for the restaurant business, but the rule remains the same for most commercial businesses.

So the question is how to deal with this complex situation.

Well, if you dig into why businesses fail, people start businesses because someone in their network was successful OR reading a self-help book gave them confidence that: Entrepreneurship is the way, acting is the answer.

They do not delve into the industry and from day one they think about profits or rather what awaits me ...

this is the key problem we must address

I feel that if we take the steps below, it can lead to success.

  1. Know your strengths: First of all, check what you are really good at, where you find your flow, it must be your passion, and in case your skill is not on par with the industry experts, then you are willing to improve quickly. yourself. your experience will become a powerhouse of your business.
  2. Is your passion valuable to someone? - Once you have become an expert in your strength, now is the time to see if my experience can be valuable to someone, if people are going to pay for my services. Brainstorm these questions and if the answer is yes, you can take action
  3. As you work, provide your services for free (as a side project) and collect feedback. try different areas and markets avoid criticism or biased opinions
  4. if all goes well ... you can start your journey!

I hope you find this helpful.

For me, it was when I found myself crying in the shower because I had to go to that damn place and be with these damn people doing that damn job.

He was stuck in a job he hated. Actually, it was the whole race that he hated. I had all the right credentials (Bachelor's, Master's, MBA, CPA) and I couldn't give anyone who would give me the opportunity to do anything other than what I had been doing. I interviewed for many other roles. I even interviewed for the same positions at different companies, which would have been an improvement even if I still hated my career.

For me, it was when I found myself crying in the shower because I had to go to that damn place and be with these damn people doing that damn job.

I interviewed for many other roles. I even interviewed for the same positions at different companies, which would have been an improvement even if I still hated my career.

Our department vice president had this "stuff of the month" kind of thing. The last straw was when they did this "race route" thing. The first step was to complete this questionnaire. The instructions clearly said "say how you see yourself." I answered honestly. The information I got was "this is how any of us sees you and we will ask you to review your answers." They also said that if I didn't do something to improve my work, they would put me on a performance improvement plan. It's true that I was disgusting at that job, especially since I hated my boss, his boss, and the whole fucking company. I still turn out of the building (or any of its other buildings) when I pass them.

So, I went home and looked at my finances and my savings. I had enough to live for 6 months without work. I developed a plan to change careers and did everything I could to make that plan happen.

His inspiring words are worth quoting verbatim: This is the summary of his latest interview on CNBC.

“India is on an upward structural path. The next 10-15 years are likely to be a golden period for India. So anyone who doesn't want stock will greatly regret this hindsight. The younger you are, the more shares you should have. If you are in your 20s, one hundred percent or 90 percent of your portfolio should be stocks ... So I think it's a golden period. If 2003-2009 was the mother of all bull markets, I call this the grandmother of all bull markets. And we are at the beginning. So we haven't seen the movie yet, it's happening right now. "

Ridham opined that an aggressive rate cut by the RBI is on the cards now, as demonetization has slowed demand. The economy will get a boost by lowering interest rates.

"India's macro stability remains at its best in several years and policy momentum is the best since 2007. Financial conditions look easy and the inflation trajectory suggests more rate cuts are on the way," Ridham Desai and Sheela Rathi said in an investigative note.

This question reminded me of Naina, the main female character in a Bollywood movie "Ye jawaani hai deewani". There is a scene in which she and Bunny (the male lead) compare what makes them the happiest, while the boy tries to establish that travel is better. She loves to reminisce about old memories with childhood friends, while he enjoys the stories strangers exchange over a meal. He loves lamb biriyani at home, he loves lamb burgers in San Francisco. He finally admits that she is different from him, and they enjoy the sunset, dropping last on his Udaipur travel list.

He finally admits that she is different from him, and they enjoy the sunset, dropping last on his Udaipur travel list.

Now let's get back to the point. The hype surrounding travel is due more to people not being satisfied with the monotony of life, the lack of connection in their everyday relationships, than just the love of them. Travel is hard to stay in a comfortable hotel, a luxury spa experience in some exotic location, or visit a few places during a 5-day vacation. It can be, of course, but this is not always the case. It's the breathless moment of watching the sun rise behind one of the many peaks of the Himalayas, or the soft hum of happiness as you enjoy a busker playing his favorite piece on the violin in Vienna. You can find the same joy by reading a book in a quiet corner of your home, enjoying a meal with your family, or watching your favorite movie for the umpteenth time. That hardly makes anything "wrong" with you. You may be one of the lucky few who have found peace right where you are. It's where you find happiness and comfort during tough times, and that's where you need to be.
