About Agile Existence
My name is Rhys Fisher, and I started this blog, project Thermal Crossings, and am co-founding Adventures Unbound. My friends know me as a lifestyle hacker, but my mother just thinks I’m difficult. I enjoy the following quote:
“Once in a while, it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.” – Alan Keightley
So what exactly is Agile Existence?
It is an alternative lifestyle that’s being adopted by a growing subculture of people that have learned how to break free from meaningless work and consumer society.
Those who practise agile living are more commonly referred to as lifestyle designers, digital nomads, location independent professionals, or perpetual travelers. They’re best described as those uncommon group of people who would rather invest in experiences instead of material belongings.
They have learned how to make a living while on the move, often using internet technologies in novel ways to fund their adventures. This allows them to better adapt to our ever changing environment, and live in some of the world’s most beautiful places. These individuals also have a tendency to take extended breaks to be able to follow passions, acquire new skills, and quit unhealthy commitments.
Are you ready to treat time as a currency and live life on your own terms? If yes, then you have come to the right place.
Why did I start this blog?
I’m actually starting much more than just a blog, I’m aiming for this to become a global community. The blog is just the first step in bringing together those who have deferred from the standard life plan. The content will be actionable, high quality, and provide a great place to start meaningful conversations within the comments of each post.

What others are saying about Agile Existence?
“As a Swede I am told that I am born as a blank sleet and that I have all the opportunities in the world. In some weird way though, I feel like our educational system and the norms of society has limited me, has made me afraid to fail. My method to overcome has been to be agile and move between several different arenas each day. I make sure to have a constant flow of new perspectives and keep my creativity level high - two very important traits when working with a creative and highly complex environment as a Business Developer. In a world where silos are what is causing many of the conflicts around us, I believe that a community like this, of like-minded individuals who live for new experiences and perspectives, will be a glue that helps bring it all together. I’ve now found a name and home for my way of living - agile existence.” - Per Bergstrom, Business Developer
"In the last few years, internet technologies have completely flipped the music industry on its head. If you wanted to make a living making music, you had to learn how to adapt or accept going bust. Agile Existence gave a name to the mindset that I believe is necessary to be successful in my rapidly changing field." Nick Athens - Music Producer
