1. Thought: creating my own -core

I made a groundbreaking discovery in my preposterous desire to condense my life down to into a single bite-sized-chunk! First I managed to boil all of my activities, values, and desires down to these three bullet points:

  • Independent, creative developer
  • Independent thinker
  • Endurance adventure sporter

Then I figured out that these three bullet points can be combined into one single magnificent vision. The vision of a fin-de-siècle explorer. I call it ‘explorer core’.

If you want to see more of these very fashionable 20th-century mountaineers than you should definitely read the article where I explain what ‘explorer core’ is, and how it reflects my goals, dreams, values, and hobbies.

2. Art – 2023 solo exhibition

I have an interesting range of goals for 2023 to develop myself culturally. The main objective however is to organise a cool solo exhibition. This main goal will combine all of my subgoals into one. You can read the details and the direction of this exhibition in my 2023 document.

3. Quote

“The whole world was functioning for the benefit of my personal observation and education”

Leonard Cohen. This quote plays an indispensable role in my vision of an explorer.
