Saturday Morning Coffee with Mr. Living in Peru
It is April 1, 2017, and it is like starting, not only a new month but also a new chapter. April is going to be awesome in many ways.
Yes, I know there are many victims of El Niño and they need help. The good news is that there is so much help on the way and people are standing in line to give a hand, and I suspect 99% are being helped and more help is on its way.
Hopefully, our new government will take the torch and secure that these natural catastrophes in the future will have much smaller impacts on our society by hiring the best professional (sin corruption) to build an infrastructure that will allow the water to go the right places instead of the wrong places. It can be done. I’ve seen how private companies have build infrastructures to secure agricultural land up in the north.
PPK and his team agree that we now have an opportunity to rebuild our country to stand stronger against nature and as a smarter country. Hopefully, the “Fujimoristas” can support this opportunity to build a stronger and better country.
Last week a reader expressed his dissatisfaction about me writing about things that didn’t relate directly to Peru and the disaster at hand. It was not out of lack of respect that I allowed myself to write about other issues that are important topics, which I also will do this time.
I’ve decided to “open up” and not only write about Peru and what is happening here but also about the things that I find important. I hope you’ll like what I have picked for you, as a topic and that you'll allow yourself to get inspired. I can’t give you any guarantees, but I’ll do my utmost to find something interesting, cool, shocking, surprising – something that will make you think and say “can this really be true!?”
So here is my first new discovery.
Last week I met up with Laurie Segall. I didn’t really meet her, but I’m sure you understand after you see the first episode of a new series called “Mostly Human” that recently was published on CNN and which you can see here.
The first episode is called “Dead, IRL” and talks about how we wish to be remembered after we die. Personally, I hope people would say that Carsten was an exponential thinker, fun and interesting person to be around, smart & helpful and most importantly an awesome dad, good husband and a friend one could count on.
Well, there are many ways to be remembered today. People leave a digital footprint and some continue life on social media, some more active than others and it this program you can learn what your options are today. I’m sure you’ll get surprised and it’ll make you think. I discussed the possibilities with my wife and we had a GOOD discussion 🙂
What do you think of this subject? How do you wish to be remembered and what kind of digital footprint are you leaving for your friends, fans, and family to remember you.
To finish up this edition I found something very special for you. If this doesn’t amaze you, I haven’t accomplished my mission to enlighten you.
If you missed our Editor, Hope Ansanelli’s article yesterday where she interviewed Tech and Innovation Expert Peter Presley who will be coming to Lima next week to give a seminar at UTEC, click here for the link.
Don’t forget to have some fun with your loved ones. We need to spice up our lives.
Happy April Fxxxx day – Carsten
