[Video] The Value Of Experiments

Adopting an “experimenter” mindset has helped me a lot over the years. Whenever there’s something I feel could be useful or challenging, I set up a simple test for it. Sometimes it’s a simple question with a not-so-simple answer. What if I lived with less stuff? Can you run a company effectively without an office? ...

[Video] Presence Is The Best Present

In the last years, I have become very conscious about how much things I own and need. I came to the realization that experiences and spending time together are often a better present than something materialistic. Hence, presence is the best present! Video Transcript I’ve barely been in Switzerland for eight hours now and it’s ...

Where’s Home For Someone Without A Home?

It’s hard to set roots when you fly 100+ times a year. But what defines a home – its location or the way you feel there? I think many people live in a single place but don’t really feel at home. For me, home can be anywhere as long as I’m surrounded by people I ...

[Video] How I Deal With Jet Lag

With 120 flights last year, I often struggled with jet lag. While some people use sleeping pills or other tricks to avoid it, I found that’s not the best tactic when traveling this often. A quick fix may help you get over jet lag once or twice, but it’s not a sustainable way of dealing ...

[Video] A Trip With My Dad To SF Or Why Money Doesn’t Equal Time

They say that “time is money”. While I don’t disagree with this, I think it doesn’t work the other way around. Money doesn’t equal time. What makes time worthwhile is who we spend it with and how. This is why I’m super stoked my dad is coming along for a visit to San Francisco. It’s ...

From things like “am I a daydreamer or night-thinker” to the weirdest place I’ve slept in, here I’ll answer common questions that people have asked me ...

Why Am I Starting a Vlog?

Starting a vlog was something I wanted to do for a long time. The only problem? I could rarely find time to sit down and focus on it. After doing a successful 30-day writing challenge last year, I decided to replicate this formula and force myself to record one video per day for 91 days ...

Black Airpods – A Review of What Apple Didn’t Want Me to Have

We make an average of 35,000 decisions every day. Yes, many of these decisions are trivial or semi-conscious. Nevertheless, they take up mental energy so I thought it makes sense to minimize that number. This is why when given a choice about what to wear or what technology to buy, I usually go for black. ...

The Busy Person’s Everyday Routines for Productivity

In episode 2 of my vlog experiment, I talk about daily routines. They help me stay fit and productive without getting overwhelmed by all the ups and downs of modern life. I hope this will serve as an inspiration to many of you, especially if you’ve struggled with things like working out during travel or ...

The Tools That Got Me Through 120 Flights In 365 Days

Last year I’ve spent just over twenty-two days on a plane. As you probably know, on longer flights the airlines give you an amenity kit. This is a small bag that contains essentials like a toothbrush, eye blinds and other items that might come in handy if you’re above the ground for a long time. Amenity ...
