DOWNSHIFTING

Letteralmente sta per: cambiamento verso il basso. E’ una delle soluzioni per cambiare vita adottando come paradigma lo spendere meno senza rinunciare ai propri desideri ed alla propria libertà. E’ una scelta, quindi un libero arbitrio.

Da qualche tempo il downshifting sembra fare proseliti. Simone Perotti ha descritto molto bene la sua formula nel  libro dal titolo: Adesso Basta (Ed. Chiarelettere). Di un altro caso ho letto che ha abbandonato il lavoro che svolgeva in una birreria per dedicarsi alla vita da acrobata di circo con la moglie (e una figlia piccola). Di un altro caso ancora ho saputo intorno a Bergamo. Un architetto ha scelto di gestire un agriturismo con la propria famiglia.

Anziché parlare di moda vorrei focalizzare l’attenzione sul downshifting in sé e per sé. Al più si può dire che è diffuso il desiderio di fare downshifting. Cause, la caotica vita delle città e le costrizioni che ne derivano. Pare che gli gli aspetti economici siano secondari.

Perotti descrive brillantemente il proprio caso. Varrebbe la pena leggerne il libro. Qui mi soffermo ad evidenziare alcuni aspetti. Per cominciare è invidiabile il processo mentale che Perotti ha messo in atto. Dopo anni di autoprocessamento ha stabilito che un giorno o l’altro avrebbe cambiato vita per dedicarsi alla scrittura di libri ed alla navigazione da diporto. All’età di 42 anni con una laurea ed un master ed una brillante carriera alle spalle al suo attivo ha avuto la lucidità di mettere in atto un progetto di non facile attuazione. Ha mollato tutto ed è andato ad abitare vicino al mare dove lava barche, fa lo skipper, scrive libri, e cura riviste di nautica. Non solo, ma ha avuto la lucidità di non commettere errori o quasi. Ha saputo affrontare tutte le difficoltà di un simile cambiamento avrebbe comportato. Chapeau!

Apparentemente è un uomo appagato e sereno. Non è escluso che ridiventi anche un uomo di successo.

Io aggiungo un paio di annotazioni: la prima, vale la pena osservare questi esempi di downshifting come chiavi di reinterpretazione della propria vita. Non solo, vanno utilizzati come case histories di successo; la seconda, sia il caso Perotti sia gli altri a cui ho accennato non vanno presi come paradigmi di un nuovo metodo di vita. Sono altrettanti casi unici.

Sono tutti casi specifici di cui vale la pena prendere nota, anche se non sono sovrapponibili a chcchessia. Sono avventure appaganti, e stimolanti. Vale la pena  provare ad affrontarle secondo il vissuto di ciascuno, il proprio temperamento, la propria cultura, la propria esperienza, le proprie passioni.

Ognuno può costruirsi il proprio downshifting!
