Dreams Around The World with Dan Johnston

You've only got one life, so why not design it around your own personality, dreams, and desires? I’m Dan Johnston and I do my best to help you become the best version of yourself all while creating an awesome life for you and those you love. Personally, I value freedom and experiences over money and things and even if the seas are a bit rougher, I’d rather be the Captain of my own ship.​ I, and the occasional guest, cover a range of topics from psychology and MBTI personality types (you know, that whole ENFP, INFP, INFJ, INTJ thing) to freelancing and entrepreneurship. Since I am location independent (a Canadian currently living in Prague), I also talk about travel and being a digital nomad from time to time.

Surprise surprise, Mr ENFP with ADHD battles with procrastination (and sounding like a 4 letter government organization)!

I want to share what I've figured out has helped me stop procrastinating and create a wealth of creative content including writing books, recording podcasts, and especially, consistently filming YouTube videos. 

Getting stuck in the creative block is not fun and, apart from wasting a ton of time, it may feel like you're wasting your talents away! Creative energy is not very predictable, so the question is:

How to stop procrastinating and maximize your creativity so that you can get more of your creative work done?

As an ENFP with ADHD, I myself struggled with this, so I'd like to share some helpful tips on how I overcome procrastination and manage to follow through on my creative projects by reframing what procrastination means to my creative process.

In this Part 4 of my AskDan session which I recorded here in Spain, I'm sharing some more responses to the questions I've received from some of my subscribers.

What is the best strategy for a young ENFP to pick the right college major or career? Given the ENFP personality traits, what should ENFPs take into consideration when deciding on their career path? I'm sharing a bit of my own ENFP career story and one very important tip to set you on the right track.

What should you do if you'd like to change your ENFP career into one that is more meaningful to you, but you're scared since you have a family and financial obligations to take care of?

I'm debunking the starving artist myth and sharing my best advice on how to think about the risk that comes with pursuing your ENFP passion. If you're aspiring to be a writer or a copywriter, this advice may be especially useful to you.

If you're thinking of becoming location independent, travelling full time, and starting your own business that would allow you to have such a lifestyle, there are some very important things you have to consider. I'm sharing some tips on discipline, accountability, and how to start a blog even if you're a full-time employee right now.

This is Part 3 of a little AskDan session of mine where I respond to questions from my subscribers sent to me via my website.

In this episode I'm answering:

What should you do if you feel like a failure at everything? If you find it difficult to start taking action and reach your goals, it may have a huge bad impact on your confidence. You may end up in a vicious cycle of beating yourself up, not feeling confident enough to try to work on your goals, which will, in turn, make you even less confident.

Are you comparing yourself to others' perfect lives on Instagram and feeling that everyone's doing much better than you? Listen up for some advice on how to break out of this poor state, how to stop feeling like a failure, and rebuild your confidence step by step!

To be top performers, should ENFPs work at jobs they are less suited for to build more knowledge, job skills, and credibility to better perform later at something they'd rather do - or should they jump right into it and start doing their own thing immediately?

Building skills and learning are very important and I'd like to share some of my personal stories around my own ENFP career and jobs, as well as some advice on how an ENFP can go about gaining knowledge and skills in the most effective way.

This is Part 2 of a little AskDan session of mine that I recorded as I was waiting for some important news about my recent investment in Ukraine, which got me a bit worked up. So I thought it would be good to cheer myself up with the notes and questions from my lovely subscribers!

I'm sharing some thoughts on:

  • Is finance a good career for an ENFP? I'm addressing some pros and cons of having a career dealing with markets and economy as an ENFP 
  • How to better structure your thoughts and communicate more clearly as an ENFP
  • Beating procrastination, making the most of last-minute work, and overall being productive and getting things done in a strategic way

As I was waiting for some important news about my recent property investment in Ukraine, instead of giving in to stress I thought it'd be fun to go through a bunch of AskDan questions I've received via my website.

In this episode, which is Part 1 of this little AskDan session of mine, I'm sharing some helpful advice on:

  • Changing your MBTI type and if an ENFP with ADHD can actually turn into an ENTJ
  • Quitting a well-paid job that doesn't inspire you
  • How to take care of your need for a community when you're planning to become an expat or a digital nomad and move to a different continent
