Today, I'm sort of cheating. Most of these words aren't mine. They're written by @basilesamel, but I've just got home and finished reading Alter Nomad on the flight. You should check it his book.

I'm currently reading The Power of Habits, which is apt, since I'm trying to get into better habits that will improve myself. Writing more. Reading more. Developing more. Supporting more.

My favourite quote I've read this weekend: 

"I've been really lucky," he said. "And I really, genuinely believe that if you tell people that they have what it takes to succeed, they'll prove you right" - Howard Schultz, Starbucks CEO

I found it funny reading some of the content from Baz, as I definitely fell under some of the terms he used - particularly about travelling quickly and being a tourist.


It’s interesting to note that the term “travel” comes from the old French “travail”, which means “work”. The word “travail” originates from the Latin “tripalium”, an instrument of torture. From an etymological point of view, travel is closely related to work, and torture.


One must justify his/her own choices while understanding what society expects from its members: to create wealth.


This is something we should strive for: a lifestyle fitting you so deeply that even all the money in the world would not be able to change it.


Sedentaries are lonely too, so many are waiting for the weekend to forget it.

If you made it this far, the first person to message me can have a copy of Alter Nomad - paid for by me.

    @craigpetterson #1 is interesting as I am a sucker for etymology. #4 is interesting for the ambiguity of the word "it."
