Stimulate yourself and relocate.
There is a definitive correlation between those of use whom have lived in different locations around the world and those who haven’t. Obviously the sense of discovery and fulfillment of the unknown seems to draw out the creative folk mostly. But, on occasion you come across an accountant or lawyer or labourer whom relocation was due to work. Sometimes the loss of a job can be a good thing. Seeking work outside your local community will certainly add character to yourself. I wouldn’t hire anybody without some form of relocation experience. There is so many dynamics that happen when someone learns to cope with unfamiliar surroundings that simply cannot be taught. It makes for great leaders and self starters in the work place. For the creative folk, relocation will stimulate the brain unlike anything else you could possibly be taught. I believe it is imperative to relocate even for a minimum 6 months just to acclimatize to the surroundings. Of course if you are under the age of 3o then you should be looking at least 2 to 3 years. Experience a seasonal cultural event in another Community, City or Country will truly give you a perspective on life unlike anything else. So, pack the bags folks and spin the Globe.
