You Are The Best, Right Now

By | Learnings | 3 Comments
I heard someone respond to the question “when are you the best version of yourself?” with, “Never”. She explained that you are always growing and developing and thereby aiming for that better, best version. While listening I had a very strong internal reaction… No, I disagree.

The Distance between Dreams and Reality is called Action

Dream – enable and empower through entrepreneurship

Doing something sustainable in Nepal is not as easily said as done. I came here with many good intentions, and now that my time is nearing an end, it is not that my intentions are less, but I have definitely been confronted with some obstacles. But many times I have been reminded here, that things are as they are and you make due with what there is.

A Shower in the Land of Lo

By | Exploring, Learnings | No Comments
Timing is everything when you want to shower in Lo Manthang. And believe me, with all the walking, and sand, and dust that manages to get everywhere, you want to shower. A shower in the morning is impossible as all water-mains (smallish black rubber tubes that run all throughout the mountains across Nepal) are frozen. No running water until at least 9-10 am when the sun has defrosted all tubes, in case of no sun – later. Although the water might be running at this time, it will come out of the tab near frozen, not nice for a shower you so badly want. So you wait..

March 2014

Monday I woke up with less than 5 hours sleep, again. Tuesday four people told me I looked terrible. Wednesday I overslept and missed 3 meetings. Thursday I went to get lunch and could not remember how I got to the office that morning. Today is Friday.

I love what I am doing. But I have been having weeks like this more and more frequently. My conclusion is that I am over inspired. I am so excited about things I do, people I meet, new things I learn and see that I am in a continual state of adrenalin. The downside, I can’t sleep.

Hello World, Let’s Do Something

By | General, Learnings | No Comments
My first post, the classic ‘hello world’.

So why this blog? I needed to “Do Something”. Quitting my job in October 2014, I had no real plan, except that I knew that I wanted to create something meaningful and have a positive impact on ‘something or someone’. I say ‘something or someone’ because really it could be anything, I just don’t know. I gave myself a year to explore my next direction.
