Set Your Work Schedule As Long As You Are Within the Deadline

The Society for Human Resources Management inquired 13 leaders in the HR industry about their policies related to allowing digital nomads to be in their workplace. One of the leaders mentioned how the entire team, including digital nomads, must work within a deadline.

As long as digital nomads are contributing to their assigned projects, as long as it is within the deadline time frame and they are staying in proper communication with their manager and team, all will be good. Hence, you can have command over your schedule on what you will do during the day in your personal life while incorporating your assigned workload.

Say that you have a project due at 11 am the next day. You can work on some of the projects from 7 pm to 8 pm before getting ready for bed and then work on it again from 5 am to 6 am before sending it off. Then,  you can get ready for the day and go explore the attractions wherever you are currently living as a digital nomad.

Most Digital Nomads Are Millennials, But You Can Be One At Any Age

MBO Partners states that about 34% of digital nomads are Millennials, which is the largest age group. Generation Z digital nomads make up another 23% which is the second most populous of the group. Because they are the youngest adult generation worldwide, they are more attuned to the digital lifestyle and learning how to find work opportunities online.

No matter the statistics, you can travel around the world and work from anywhere you want at any age. Do not put a label on your age thinking that you are too old or too young to travel around the world as you make a living.
