MotoX in Thailand

Hey there!

Welcome to Motorcycle Capitalist where I document my adventures balancing my business on a bike  traveling the world on my motorcycle.

Redefining Success in Baja Mexico

Redefining Success in Baja Mexico

Day 62, I've meandered from Toronto πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ to Ensenada Mexico visited many beautiful locations, met incredible people and had a lot of fun along the way. I've had very few fixed destinations along the way. When I roll into a new town I always ask the locals what I should check out nearby and that has guided me towards my next checkpoint. Rinse and repeat.

Adventure may hurt you, but monotony will kill you.

In πŸ’Ό business I used to have the goal of making some Top 30 Under 30 List, I failed, I didn't reach the arbitrary numbers and metrics πŸ“‰ I had personally set for myself which I could then celebrate and say "Now I can officially be happy!". I was caught in a miserable cycle of my own creation. I hated it.

I look at success and life a little differently now. Perhaps this comes with time, or maybe a cynic would call it a consolation πŸ†

I now include time as one of the most valuable commodities around. Money is important, let's not kid ourselves but what good is having πŸ’° alone yet no time to spend with your family, friends, or to simply do absolutely nothing and not feeling guilty about itπŸ€”

I'd equate that to perhaps being more like having a high standard of living, but a low standard of life. I think Bob Dylan said it best;

"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do."

Welcome to Mexico! I think I'll stay a while 😎
