Don’t look back, you’re not going that way
The last few months didn’t exactly play out as planned. What was supposed to be a 3 week break in Holland after 5 months of travel, turned into a 3 month forced stopover because of issues with my heart. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But I don’t believe that happens by itself.
Not taking any chances, I did everything within my grasp to optimize my recovery and lived like an athlete preparing for the Olympics in Rio. My routine: sleep for at least 8 hours every night, eat healthy, no alcohol, and a lot of Crossfit. Now, 7 weeks have passed, and I dare to say I’m fitter than ever before…
…Just in time for my 13th experiment
The goal: To connect Dutch and South-African entrepreneurs.
A month ago, the phone rang: “We want to execute the experiment. Can you help us?”
Starting tomorrow, we’re doing exactly what 80experiments.com is all about: Executing ideas!
The best part is I’m taking 4 powerhouse entrepreneurs with me! So for me it’s officially one experiment. But with Jabbo Smulders, Esther Jacobs, Anke Kuipers and Jan-Henk Bouman working on 4 other challenges with local South-African startups, we’re actually doing FIVE experiments!
…it’s not just ‘me’ anymore
Typing this update I realized this means it’s not just me anymore. There are actually others experimenting the world with me! An incredible realization.
If you’re curious what we’re up to in South-Africa, check the menu to the left for ways to connect.
For now, stay tuned — because I’m ready to Rock ‘n Roll again!
All the best,
Ps; Yesterday I started the ultimate mind control experiment: a 21-day no-complaint challenge. More on that later.
