What is freedom? Author Chris Guillebeau of The Art of Non-Conformity talks about how his definition of freedom has changed over the years. Originally, it began with a desire to "determine the course of my daily schedule and overall life direction." That was true for me too. That's why I went into business for myself, and probably why you did (or plan on doing it) too.
Like Chris, over the years my definition of "creative freedom" has evolved. I want to choose my own adventure in this life. I want what I do to mean something good. I want challenge, growth and learning too.
"I think that most of us want freedom to create, to make something meaningful. The freedom that we achieve allows us to move to higher planes of mission and purpose," says Chris. I agree.
It's worth thinking about. What does creative independence mean to you?
