A Boss is the master of his surroundings. He knows the best hole in the wall Chinese place, and also a cool spring he can take a lady friend if they’re interested in the outdoors.
The best way to find these places is to go exploring.
First, take your smartphone or a map in case you get lost. Then walk out your door and start going in a direction you’ve never gone before. And there you have it—you’re exploring!
Not only do you get a chance to check out more of your neighborhood (when most of the time you’re just going to and from school/work or the motorway), you can see how people live who don’t have cars. It’s a humbling experience, as these people are mostly invisible as you’re driving past.
When you find cool stuff, keep a journal online (or a blog!) of what you find.
Now if you’re really adventurous, you might want to try urban exploration. Urban exploration is essentially trying to find things that are hidden in plain sight in cities across the world. Condemned buildings, closed subway stations, abandoned lofts, closed mental asylums. You can find some really interesting things in these types of places, and some of them are relatively easy to get to. However, this type of exploring can be both (a) illegal and (b) dangerous, so always bring a partner and please exercise caution.
I personally go exploring all the time. A girl and I walked around New York City yesterday in a direction and a place that we’ve never been before. We found a place that still does a dollar-a-slice pizza and found some really interesting restaurants to try.
So get up, go out, “Live The Boss Life” and go exploring!
