Life lessons in 8 years of travelling

  • en Life lessons in 8 years of travelling
  • id Life lessons in 8 years of travelling

Benny Lewis spent eight years after his college travelling the world, likely seeing places and speaking languages more than we’ve ever done; and most importantly experienced and learnt valuable life lessons than we can ever do in years to come. Some of them are:

  • Everyone everywhere basically wants the same thing. Everyone just wants validation, love, security, enjoyment and hopes for a better future.
  • Deferring your happiness to the future is a terrible idea. Too many people presume that when they have that one thing they can work towards for years then “everything will be alright”. It’s not. So it’s not how fast you reach your big goal, but it’s how you enjoy the journey.
  • Seek out people with different beliefs and views of the world to yours and get to know their side of the story. Don’t take responsibility for convincing the world you are right. It’s important to acknowledge that maybe you are actually the wrong one. Spending time exclusively with people who agree with you on everything would never challenge you and allow you to learn so much more.
  • Living a good life is the best way possible to convince people. Enough words and enough arguing. Just live by example and soon you’ll have people on your side when they see your results and how passionate you are.
  • More money will NEVER solve your problems. Beyond the basic necessity, having more wouldn’t make you any happier. Spend enough time with people who are actually living on next to nothing, but having a full life, to truly understand this. Everything that is wonderful about life doesn’t cost a penny, and the rest is way cheaper than you think it is.
  • TV is the greatest black hole of time available to mankind. People get biased news through it, watch terrible TV shows through it that teach them nothing, and it sucks so many hours of their lives away that they delude themselves into thinking that they don’t have time to pursue real passions in life. TVs encourage people to be antisocial.
  • The Internet is the greatest tool ever available to us, but daily use must be capped. Use it to enrich your life, but put a cap on how much you use it so you can get out and live that life. The real social network is out there in the real world.
  • Get outside and do something with other people. The world that is worth experiencing is not in books or on TV or computer screens. It’s with other human beings.

Earth Hour 2011

Last year almost all the national monuments and landmark icons, including the Merlion, the Singapore Flyer, Esplanade Theatres, the Fullerton Hotel, One Fullerton, Clifford Pier and the Asian Civilizations Museum took part in the Earth Hour 2010 by switching off decorative lights that primarily define their façade at night. Around the central business district, the Singapore River flew in darkness when buildings in downtown area power down their non-essential lighting for the requisite hour between 8.30 to 9.30pm. These include the HSBC Building, Maybank Tower, Raffles City Shopping Mall, One Raffles Quay, Suntec City and Swissotel the Stamford. Read more about Earth Hour 2010 at CNNGo.

It seems that more people and organizations are more aware of the cause and get involved in this year’s Earth Hour. Let’s see how the skyline is gonna be during Earth Hour 2011 later this month!

450 Earth Hour 2011

Some people misunderstood the whole idea behind this cause and thought the one hour of switching off the lights and electronic appliances is meant to save some electricity for the planet. Well, yeah they’re right the energy saved during that one hour doesn’t impact much on our planet even if millions of people are doing it during Earth Hour. But what they missed, and what prevails… is the hope and sense of unity which instill us and everyone else out there, declaring that millions of people around the world care about our one and only earth regardless of the continent we’re in, the language we speak, or the religion/belief we believe in.
