How to exchange foreign currency

English, Español, Français, 日本語

When I travel foreign country, the first 5 phrases I try to learn in their language are:

Hello, Thank you, I am sorry, where is the bathroom? How much is it?

This entry deals with the field of the last phrase, in particular exchange of money. Although each country has their own culture, almost every country has monetary system, and because of the globalization, there are more and more needs of traveling and using foreign currency.

However, exchanging money is not a easy task, thus it is quite normal not to know the best way.

How to scan books and organize space

English, Español, Français, 日本語

Which one do you prefer?

The hard copy books and documents stay forever in your shelf, and you have not re-read them for many years and cannot carry due to the weights

VS

Empty chelf, and you can carry and access to soft copy books anywhere any time

As a person who believes in the power of less, the answer was quite clear (the latter), but, I didn’t take action on this for years. Partly because I did not know how to do so (thought of having no time, but this is never the reason of not doing something).

This time, as mentioned in the previous entry, I wanted to organize my past by throwing out  books and documents, so I decided to give it a try. And interestingly, it was not difficult to figure out how to do so, because the majority of people who scanned hard copy used the same items, and addressed high level of satisfaction, so why not learning from others?

Finding your goal through 3 ways of treating past

English, Español, Français, 日本語

So many self-developping books/articles mention about being successful. And many of them put this thing as the first step: Find and focus on your goal!

Given that a life is once and short, it is the quite crucial to find your own goal. Once you find one, you just need to go for it, and the process itself is rewarding experience.

But many people I talked to come to ask the same question: “What is my goal and how to find it?” As there are tons of different goals for different person, there is no straight answer to which one is the right goal. But I think one of the ways to help to find one is go back to your past.

In my previous blog, I wrote about general theories about Project management. But work is not what occupies a life. If I consider a life as a coin, the work could be one part of it as it takes a big deal of ammount, but the othese side of it could be entertainment and private life (By the way, there is no coin in Mongolia, which was very helpful to get along).

If I have to mention the best 5 things about Mongolia off the top of my head, the first thing which comes to mind is….beer (*I am not addict).

So let’s talk about drink first.

While I was about to fall asleep, the sunlight and the left over of my beer were still there.
