Travelling the world while researching

Bantayan

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. Therefore, I’ve stopped blogging for a while, quit my management consultancy job, and put my various not-for-profit activities on hold.

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!
