Sometime being a digital nomad, does not mean that you are at leisure all the time. It comes with a baggage of responsibilities, yes you heard it right! Because who want’s life to be easy and breezy, there should be some kind of turbulences that you need to go through in order to reach somewhere.
In order to be a successful digital nomad, you need to work on a whole new set of skills. These skills have nothing to do with what you want but will help you out in how you do your work. Listen to us carefully because this is how you do your nomad roll.
Let’s get you going with the top soft skills you may require as a digital nomad while traveling in India:
1. World class perfect communication skills
Travel, travel and more travel. When that one thing is common with everything else following, it is very important to improve your communication. When you will travel, you will meet a whole new set of travel. If you are good with your communication, then your stay will be best. It’s all about being a rock star communicator.
P.S: Also remember to keep your client/boss updated with the work that you are doing while traveling. It creates less panic.
2. Language Precision
Here’s the drill- before visiting a place learn a language. Try to pick up slangs that can help you while you travel. Remember addressing people with respect and adding a familial word always helps, right bhai?
P.S: Do it with a smile.
3. Clock you time
Discipline is a must! Remember you need the money to travel. Do not get flown away by the beauty of the place. Make a strict routine that can help you sort both work and travel. It will give you sweet dreams, trust me.
4. Knock, knock- Internet
One thing that connects you to your work life is the internet. Before you start your voyage to the next stop, remember to research on wifi and other connectivity. There are a lot of places in India that provide free wifi. Spot such hotels or hostels and then take a seat, relax and enjoy work.
5. Be a true researcher
When you travel in India you will find out that every place has a history of its own. Be a sucker of such information. Trust me, it will not only help you build a strong perception about Indian but also you will learn new things.
6. Be a loveable person that you are
Indians like to spread love and when you are a sweet heart they make you feel like one. Always remember to leave a trail of your sweetness. Works! ( with a wink)
7. Make friends
While you travel, make friends with the local. You never know, you could be invites for meals to their places and given free tours of the place.
P.S: Always be in touch.
