The ultimate gift you can give to yourself is a Life Purpose and means to pursue it. But how do you do it?
To live a great life you need to feel good, be good to others and do good in the world. But to do good in the world you need to know exactly what your contribution should be. You need to know, what we call, your Life Purpose.
Creating a great Significant Purpose is just the beginning. Now you need to make sure everyone in your organisations lives it.
Zip2, PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, Hyperloop – the list goes on. Is Elon Musk born a genius or could it be that he’s discovered something others haven’t?
In this post I share the “Learning Through Excitement” method and reveal the secret step to
reduce learning time from years to months. It’s time to rethink learning.
A while back I decided to travel the world again while researching various topics. To focus my attention on learning I had to stop doing the things that weren’t essential.

Philosophy, behaviour and results
I’m currently researching and thinking about philosophy, human behaviour and how to create individual and organisational results. I love it.
The reason I like to travel while researching is that travelling provides me with lots of new sensory input. I feel this input allows me to understand things at a more fundamental level than if I was to stay home in Norway and it sparks my creativity. Additionally, I meet a lot of exciting people, learn about how different people live their lives, and get to make a large number of new, memorable memories.
My wife Kristina and I travel together. So far our travels has brought us to Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Congo, Belgium, Malaysia (Borneo), Brunei, Taiwan, Japan, South-Korea, China, North-Korea and the Philippines. There’s still at least seven months left of the trip, lots more research to do and places to visit! I can’t wait :-)
I hope things are going well with all of you out there and I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you when the time is right. I do enjoy reading your comments and emails and I hope you accept that my replies will take more time than usual.
Take care and regards from the Philippines!
