Important components of the book are an extension of content material right here on VirtualWayfarer. But, rather of building however an additional travel guide, or a composite of my travel suggestions and travel stories I decided to take a step back and to concentrate on one thing really unique. As the title suggests, about 1/4th of the book is nonetheless travel-focused and has a compilation of some of the most pivotal realizations and suggestions that I’ve distilled from my travels. It is also significantly far more than that and a appear at how travel is just a single wealthy piece of the puzzle which informs and shapes other elements of who we are and the lives we reside.
Travel is a basic component of who I am. It has expanded and shaped my interests, my sense of self, and exposed me to a life complete of extremely wealthy experiences and realizations. But, beyond even travel is one thing deeper. That is my burning sense of curiosity. For my book, and as the title suggests, that is what I chose to concentrate on – the core tool and globe-view driver that guides me via life and which shapes my viewpoint. By means of that lens, I then aspire to share what equates to a significant cross-section of my worldview, observations, and revelations which have been pivotal for me and these about me.
Sensible Curiosity is, in essence, an chance to get reasonably comprehensive access to an additional person’s frame of reference, worldview, mentors, comprehensive investigation, and pivotal realizations.

I simultaneously offer a framework for understanding the individuals in your lives – from close friends or romantic partners to grandchildren or colleagues who you have generally struggled to relate to and have an understanding of.
Sensible Curiosity also includes numerous believed workouts which I’ve discovered are instrumental to shaping and enriching the way I engage with the globe and which are pivotal tools for becoming far more centered as an person, exploring my spot in the universe, and for nurturing my inner curiosity. I also draw on far more than a decade operating in the industrial globe, exactly where I’ve had the chance to advance a experienced profession across top providers in transformative industries in the United States and Europe.
For this book I’ve set out to develop a resource that is, at its heart, a “self-help” book, but for individuals with an aversion or lack of trust in regular or overly topically focused self-support books. Exactly where a lot of books in the genre have a tendency to miss the forest for the trees, my aim is to provide observations and meals for believed that inspire you, realizations that place your thoughts at ease and quiet some of your inner struggles, even though also opening up a smorgasbord of reflective tidbits that will have you re-evaluating and exploring elements of your profession, individual, relational and travel endeavors.
