Travel Out There Tip 1

We have started a weekly Travel Out There Tips vlog. Every week we will deal with a new topic. To stay updated make sure to follow us on Facebook or keep an eye on this blog.

Last week we talked about Stuff. How to sort it and keep only the best stuff – Because in the end ‘less is more’, and the less choices you have the more confident and happy you will be with the choice you made. Check out the video below:

 

Transcript from the video

At times of change one realizes how much crap you have accumulated over a period of time.

Whether at home or in business, it is  a great opportunity to lose the baggage and pick up your tools. To only keep what you value and what is most useful.

Seth Godin – a personal hero of mine – strikes a great analogy.

Imagine your business or your house being a fish monger….if you were to keep hold of all your produce – within a few days you will start putting of all your customers and friends with the awful stench of rotten fish.

At Travel Out There we have learnt to curate our content. Currently we have 120 experiences across 14 destinations published…..and over 960 Experiences unpublished.

Simple reason being Less is More. It is like when you go in a restaurant and you receive a menu that is so thick that it is almost too heavy to hold. How does it make you feel? For me it makes me feel lethargic, incapable of making a decision and lazy… opting for the waiter to make that decision for me.

But when the choice is limited – you feel inspired, energetic and confident in your decision making!
