Last year I quit my job at a cool Berlin-based start up company, not because I didn’t like it. I actually liked it a lot, but I had the feeling that I needed a change in scenery and get out to explore the world a little bit more. After two amazing months backpacking through Southeast Asia I’m back at home, still not having found my dream job,but having a little more of a clue about what I want to do with my life. I followed my intuition on this one and it hasn’t let me down. I had the most amazing time, met extraordinary people and realized that the worst-case scenarios we make up in our minds before committing to something are usually far worse than the reality turns out to be. LIFE IS SHORT. If you dearly want to do something, go out and do it without hesitation, and don’t worry too much about the consequences.
