10 Online Tools for Career Growth During Quarantine

By: Naomi Matlow

This is perhaps as good a time as any to focus on career growth. If you find yourself twiddling your thumbs, seeking an intentional direction, and an achievable goal during social isolation, the world is literally at your fingertips. Writer and philosopher Alan Watts once wrote, “No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.” So, what can each of us do now, despite our current limitations, that will help guide us with more intention into our future?

One Month & 7 Years Of Big Questions

We started Unsettled to explore the world. It was time for me to unplug and go on an adventure, so I sailed from Panama to Hawaii and reflected on the future of Unsettled.

Unsettled is a global community for those who embrace the unknown and value meaningful human connection. Our mission is to inspire a lifelong pursuit of growth, meaning, and adventure through travel and shared experiences.
