Local vs. Global

In this post Derek Sivers eloquently explains how he differentiates between focusing your time locally versus globally. And, he admits, he is not local.

Interesting read.

  1. This post is awesome. As a designer/developer, I’ve had a hard time putting into words how I feel. My wife and I closed our brick and mortar design firm in the states a few years ago to travel the world with our four kids. After having lived in Sweden, Spain and now South Africa I don’t consider anywhere my home except for where my family is at. I am not local to anywhere, the world is my home. I am Global.

  2. Very, very interesting in deed. I’m just on the verge to go global by request of international contacts but hesistated as I’m 110 % local until now… the post left me thinking which is always a good thing :-)

  3. Yes. That was an incredibly challenging read for me. I love my community and spend a lot of time developing relationships and connections here, but know that my local community isn’t a strong ground for growing the work I’m doing.
