WHAT I’M DOING NOW

This is a now page. It’s inspired by Derek Sivers. It tells you what I’m doing right now, which is:

Around the World in 80 Experiments

Monday 22 January I fly to Tel-Aviv, Israel for experiment [27/80] until Monday 29 January. After booking a flight, posting a request for help on Facebook and LinkedIn, it took less than 48 hours to confirm my next experiment. Which is still crazy to me. I’ll help out a startup called Knowers. They connect travelers with knowledgeable locals to help have a better, smoother experience while visiting new places. More on 80Experiments.

Giving talks

In 2018 I focus on public speaking. I’ve always given talks, but more on the side. Now I’m determined to become one of the better public speakers out there. With all the experiments abroad, I believe I have a story worth sharing. But it’s not about me. It’s about changing perspectives, following your curiosity, and experimenting with the world around you. If you want me to speak at your company or event, please get in touch via maartje@kevinweijers.nl or call +31646726804.

A Podcast

[In Dutch] For my podcast ‘Experimenteren Met’ I interview people I want to learn from. Every two weeks I publish an interview. It’s an experiment, and I decided to do 13 episodes to test out if I like this. Listen to the show.

What I’m Reading

I’m currently reading Sapiens and Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari.

The purpose of all of the above

Is wisdom. Why? I believe wisdom is the big objective. The umbrella goal. I’m doing a lot of different things, and therefore sometimes lack focus. And instead of just doing all these separate experiments, it’s important (at least to me) to, every now and then, zoom out to figure out how everything is connected. To get the big picture. I will write more on this later. If you want to get an update when I do, please sign up below for updates in your inbox. No bullshit ever, I promise.

Writing a Book

[In Dutch] I’m writing a book. It’s about traveling the world while helping companies innovate in exchange for food and shelter. I promised it will be finished in April 2018, but it’s on hold for a while. I’m creating so many new stories I want to have in the book as well. But at some point, I will definitely continue writing.
