With the first two Freedom Project books you’ll eventually settle on a standpoint. Travel hacking is easy. Once you get the gist of it, you can apply it over and over again and benefit from free and upgraded travel for the rest of your life. You’ll discover yourself how you can expand on the travel principles I teach, and invent new systems. The same goes for happiness at work and creating a meaningful life. For some, it means they start businesses and leave the rat race of nine-to-five corporate offices behind. Others might change their career, or find new ways to give their existing job meaning. After reading my book, people made changes to the way they created a life, and made a living from it. They ended up with a conclusion and found a standpoint that worked for them, or are working towards it.
But with love, it’s different. Just like my Happiness book, this book is first of all a collection of observations of the things that did not work for me. I feel like including another “don’t try this at home” caveat. But in the end, from what didn’t work I extracted a core essence and from there I deducted some meaningful ideas on how to do things differently. I uncovered a new way of relating to each other as human beings. Nobody wants to be lonely, even though many of us are lonelier than we’re willing to admit. Maybe this book can help. The first chapter, Loving the World, lays the foundation. Then, I recommend you proceed to the chapter you want to work on first. You can choose between three circles of people in your life: (1) your extended network of friends and acquaintances, (2) your family, or (3) your significant other(s). Or read them all, if you wish. Then, in the final chapter, we’ll put it all together. Use my ideas as a guideline, as you see fit.
While I was waiting for my flight home today I saw a forty-something year old guy with his girlfriend taking off to some far destination. They seemed independent and dependent at the same time, yet happy to be together. I want to be like them: in a relationship because I want to, not because I have to. I want to be able to leave at all times, but choose not to. That’s freedom: freedom to love.
