With the challenging economic times affecting all countries it may seem like a really bad time to be considering a sea (or tree) change.
When it might really be the best time to be preparing for a life style change. If getting out of the rat race is something you want to achieve then start doing the ground work.
Doing your research is the best way to make a success of something new – read books and magazine articles about those making it happen.
Keep a note book with ideas, quotes, sources of information, suggestions and lessons learnt – the what not to do’s.
Biographies of inspiring people can give great insights. Note down what they did that made good things come about so you can make it something beneficial for your life.
