Suddenly you switch the environment and everything changes. As we arrived in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, feeling more at ease on this island, I find it much more enjoyable. Getting more work done, enjoying the restaurants, green views (as seen in my Instagram Story), and having a dip in the pool for a good mid-day break. It’s lovely. As of now, we are looking into staying in Ubud for the next 6 weeks until we fly to our next destination in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
So it’s clear to me, there are at least two factors to productivity in the craziness of travel: having a pleasant environment and getting settled a little bit in a country. Knowing your way around, some necessary words, internalizing the money exchange rate. All of that, and then some, took about two weeks for me this time. It’s different in every place, sometimes I get lucky and the first accommodation is a perfect match (like in Kuala Lumpur), but sometimes it takes a bit longer.
How are you experiencing this kind of environment switch, or do you only work in one location and take vacations away from work? For me, work is on the road with me. So I have to find a way to make it work.
But I digress, let’s head into this weeks bullets:
I haven’t watched any movies or series for over 2 months now, so it was way over due to watch something. Perfect that it’s finally time for the release of Season 7 of Suits. I just watched the first episode of the second half of season 7, and it’s been a good start. I am looking forward to the rest of this season for sure! But now it’s time to wait as there is only one episode per week.

The first time on Kickstarter, the Gnarbox was a pretty limited device with just 128GB of SSD storage. Now they are back with a bigger and better machine. Exchangeable battery, storage up to 1TB, and no smartphone needed for backups. But even more editing power and rendering included. So it was time for me to back the Gnarbox project as well.
It’s the perfect hard drive companion for any traveling content creator, you can backup your photos, videos, from almost any device, and on top of that even start editing the raw footage on your tablet or phone without quality loss. It’s pretty magical. I went for the 1TB version, and December 2018 can’t come fast enough, I want this box today!
On top of that, Gnarbox is running a massive giveaway of camera gear, a Onewheel, Inspire 2 Drone, and much more (transparency: I get giveaway entries when you signup).

2018 is the first time that I actually shared my goals on any online platform. It’s made a huge difference for me up to this point. Every month I review my goals and publish my goals report. This is for March 2018.

I remember the time when ZHU was an artist who intentionally wanted to stay as anonymous as possible. Even playing concerts completely invisible on the stage. Just this week I heard Exhale by ZHU and remembered to research that again. Turns out he’s no longer anonymous.
