3 Books That Will Make You Quit Your Job And Travel The World Sooner Than You Ever Imagined

Quit your job and travel the world — we’ve all fantasized about that at least once or twice. Well today may be your lucky day my friend, as I am going to cover 3 books that changed my life and probably will for yours too. Warning!! They may cost you a job you were comfortable at, but If you are reading, this I assume that, just like me, you prefer adventure more than stability. People get inspired by all sorts of different things, it may take a person only one quote, like Steve jobs’ famous one “live each day as if it was your last” , a friend of mine quit his job the following day after watching “Pursuit of Happyness” by Will Smith, the majority get influenced by reading good books, and finally there is those who have to meet the authors just to get them moving.

The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris: Be prepared to get your mind blown with limitless possibilities of financial freedom.

“Stunning and amazing. From mini-retirements to outsourcing your life, it’s all here. whether you’re a wage slave or a fortune 500 CEO, this book will change your life!” – Phill Town #1 New York times bestselling author. A life coach and fellow blogger recommended this book to me when I first told him that all I want in life is to make a steady income that enables me to travel full time. He didn’t even think about it — his only words were “the four hour work week, Tim Ferris”. After reading it, It won’t take you long to notice that Tim Ferris‘ main goal is to show you how to break out of the cage that’s keeping you from doing what you really love. Full of success stories from people adopting the new rich concept and living life as millionaires, if not better, without needing as much money. This book will open you doors you never knew existed and provide you with priceless information and endless sources to take control of your life and chase your dreams quite differently this time.

How to Travel the World on $50 USD Per Day, by Matt Kepnes: Travel cheaper, longer, smarter

“A bible for budget travellers.” — BBC Travel Reading his blog, I easily connected with this simple guy’s story. I was convinced that if he could do it then so could I, following each step and advice while exchanging emails I finally got his book to assist me with my long trip planing, and here I am writing you this article all the way from Thailand. Three months past already after quitting my job and starting my own journey in Asia, and I don’t know when this adventure will end. Expect effective tips and tricks of how to save money at home as well as on the road. Prepare your resignation letter, my friend, because all your excuses keeping you at home are going to turn to explanations you have to give your family, friends and co-workers. Plus, knowing that you don’t need more than two thousand dollars to travel to southeast Asia for at least 4 months is going to crash every excuse you’ve been telling yourself.

Vagabonding by Rolf Potts: an Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel

“Vagabonding is about refusing to exile travel to some other, seemingly more appropriate time of your life. Vagabonding is about taking control of your circumstances instead of passively waiting for them to decide your fate.” I bought this book at the same time as the second from the list and decided to read it last because as soon as I saw the front cover I could immediately feel that I would enjoy it more. I wasn’t wrong. I actually first opened it during my flight to Japan, long after all the overwhelming trip planing was done; it was a different experience for me since I was already travelling. It’s the most inspiring of the three, with deep insight of how Vagabonding will make you a better and a happier person who knows how to appreciate the little details in life. I never felt as proud of a decision I’d made before, and I know I would read it again and again if I hadn’t left it with a couch-surfer I stayed with as a gift after his welcome. Here is an excerpt from the audiobook version of Vagabonding:

Act Now

There is lot of information out there and sometimes reading a lot of it will only make you wait and keep fantasizing about a perfect time that’s probably never going to come, instead of taking action and making it happen. However, I believe that these books will help you overcome every fear holding you back from quitting a job that’s keeping you from travelling the world. So go book that ticket away and who knows, I’ll probably see you on a beautiful beach here in Thailand.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
