The importance of planning and organizing was confirmed by Marin who said, “Every morning I wake up, prepare breakfast and while eating I schedule my whole day. If I don’t do it, nothing bad really happens, but I am not as much efficient as I could be.”
Karl agreed. “But my main challenge is that day have not enough hours. I need and want to get so many things done that day and there is simply not enough time to do it. So I have to plan and make decisions what I will focus on.”
The need for decision making skills was proven by Patrick by saying “Sometimes you can get overwhelmed by to a number of choices. I had so many options where to go next and I could not decide. I left it until the last day. Then I had to pay a lot of money, because the price of plane tickets raised extremely, and the level of stress as well.”
On the other hand, the majority of interviewees put emphases on flexibility, adaptiveness, and the skill to improvise. That is contradicts with planning, but still the skill to reorganize things even when something unexpected happens, is needed. Benno also mentioned skill which could be included in Business skills category – decision making. “It is important to know how to set up your priorities and values so you can make a decision.” As well as Patrick, Pedro and other digital nomads also emphasized the need of skill to adapt.
Benno explained how important is the skill to adapt for a Digital Nomad. “Adapt to the new situation really fast and easy. If you cannot or you don’t want to then the DN lifestyle Is not for you. You should know how to deal with unexpected situations.”
Karl describes how problem-solving skills are important. “The problems will come. After some time, I was laughing how often they come. Almost every day something unexpected happened. You can get injured, the internet is not working or something goes wrong and you need to know how to solve these situations.”
4.2.1.2. Ability to socialize
The majority of interviewed digital nomads mentioned that socializing is very important in their life. As previously stated by Patrick, a lot of digital nomads are lonely and do not meet other people. Pedro refutes this statement by saying “They should also know how to meet people and how to communicate with them. When you meet new people from different cultures, you should be able to adapt the conversation to such culture. Otherwise, you will end up lonely and that’s not cool.”
