Circumnavigate the Globe: CHECK!

Do you have a dream that’s been tucked away on your bucket list for over a decade? For me, that dream was to circumnavigate the globe. And this year, I checked it off my list.

It came together through a remarkable mix of catalysts: the Rotary International Convention in Singapore, my wife’s 60th birthday, and a chance to embark on a global speaking tour with exciting stops in London, Cambridge, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

The thrill of this journey was beyond words. I had the pleasure of meeting numerous people I’d only known virtually, and finally got to meet face-to-face. Sharing the WHY Operating System with two new continents was a highlight. Along the way, I experienced diverse modes of travel and took in incredible sights. However, it was a whirlwind trip; while stops in London and Amsterdam had their leisurely moments, the pace was brisk.

Upon returning home, checking this monumental journey off my bucket list brought a unique sense of satisfaction. Yet, there was also a subtle sense of anticlimax. After looking forward to global travel of this scale for so many years, the absence of months-long euphoria was unexpected. Instead, I felt a light smile, a quiet moment of satisfaction, and a deeper appreciation for the dedication and sacrifice that made this trip possible.

I want to encourage you to dust off your bucket list and take a step toward achieving one of your dreams. Epic experiences fuel our momentum, pushing us towards bigger goals that involve exciting people, memorable places, and fun adventures.
