I don't know how many of you are familiar with http://www.mauisurfreport.blogspot.com/ if you're not you should be!! Anyway over the last few weeks the blog author 'GP' has been telling the story of how he jacked it all in (working for HP) and went to live in Hawaii. Please take the time to read it it's thought provoking.
Now GP lives in Hawaii and, by his own admission, has no money but lives and breaths the ocean life. I think to myself I too , like GP, would like to jack it all in and go and live on a tropical island and go and play in the ocean every day...but here's the rub..... the important bit is not the 'living in Hawaii' bit but the 'jack it all in bit'.....if you find yourself constrained and trying to live your life by fitting into a set of rules set by others/society at the very least break those rules, even if it's just a little.
If you don't you'll regret it, after all it's better to regret trying than to regret not trying at all!
