    I struggle with the same questions Tim. Most weekends are packed with as many things as possible and then time outside of the day job during the week taking care of life and preparing for the weekends. If I’m not skiing or sailing then I’m hiking, mountain biking or kayaking. I try and do as much as I can with PureOutside, my website writing and taking photos and videos for it, not to mention the maintenance and feature upgrades that are constantly happening.

    Whenever I slow down or stop, it feels good but there’s still that nagging feeling of missing something. I could be hiking right now is what I’d be feeling sleeping in on a saturday morning. Then I think, well, I could be but should I be?

    Hey Tim, Good article. Syncs very much with my thoughts at the moment. Life is about living. Sometimes we are driven so that it means making the most of every moment, every opportunity. But sometimes, equally, that means just… living. I have been taking it easier on the adventuring front (apart from forthcoming stint in Mog..err!) I think partly I felt like I needed to prove something to myself that I could do all the things I leapt into and also to fill my time. I mean I enjoyed that pure adventuring phase but sometimes there is a time to lean back, think and also, not think. No surprise, perhaps, that my latest phase involves yoga, reading about Buddhism and just chilling a bit more.
