When I was off to London for a three days exploration of the city. I felt refreshed and re-energized after my travel when I returned early this week. I love walking around the City of London.
This long weekend trip brought me this as I was mulling over my shift.
“Foreign experiences increase both cognitive flexibility and depth and integrativeness of thought, the ability to make deep connections between disparate forms” — Brent Crane
I needed to be self-aware, self-regulated and rewire my brain.
“Whether travelling for business or pleasure travel should always be about discovery. The connections we make as we experience the world beyond ourselves. The knowledge we acquire as we talk to people who are different from us in their experiences and their perceptions. The challenge itself, the way we process it, rewires our brain and leads to a different way of considering where we are and who we are.
I needed to go slow.
“But, in a time when we favor answers over questions, efficiency over precision, another rule we should consider very carefully is the sixth one: “faster is slower” — @tdebaillon
Update: as the pandemic hit in 2020, I examine travelling while using McLuhan tetrad. Below is my take.
