Unsettled | 2020 Giveaway
Submit Your Entry...

How have you created more freedom, mobility, or flexibility in your work life?

We live in a culture that drives us to work more, longer, and harder…and it’s driving us towards burnout. Yet every day, there are more and more of us taking steps to moderate our hours, set boundaries at work, or to leave traditional 9-5’s altogether for the pursuit of greater balance, alignment, and freedom. 

#DesignForFreedom is our biggest giveaway in history. We will have 5 WINNERS and over $5,000 in Unsettled experiences will be given away, including a free one-week Unsettled trip to Costa Rica. All you need to tell us is… how have you intentionally crafted or designed your work life to have more freedom, more flexibility, or more mobility? We want to hear all the ways you’ve done this, from complete career reinvention to small tweaks to your routine.

To get you started, here are some ideas:

  • I convinced our company to let us work from home on Fridays and I get to spend the day at home in my PJs which is all I ever wanted. #designforfreedom
  • I began freelancing and it took me 3 years, but today I am self-employed and work from home. #designforfreedom
  • I went back to school to become a travel nurse. I now work 8 months out of the year, earn good money, and spend the other four months traveling and learning. #designforfreedom
  • I spent weeks thinking about how to set better boundaries at work, and how to have this conversation with my boss. I talked to more than 10 friends and got their advice, and when I had the conversation… #designforfreedom
  • I decided to turn off my phone notifications as soon as I walk out the door at work. I told my team that I needed to do this, and 6 months later, I am still seeing it show up positively in my life and not affecting work at all… #designforfreedom
