Sailing the world and generating power

Balance, Inspiration | PlanHQ | 0 Comments

I had the pleasure this weekend of sailing around the Wellington Harbour with captain Glenn Andert and his partner Pamela in the learjet that he’s been sailing for the last 3 years around the pacific between home #1 in California and his new home with Pamela at #2 - New Zealand.

Striking the balance on the ocean

A software architect by trade and co-founder of several IT companies, Glenn seems to have struck a pretty cool balance. Traveling long haul across legs of the pacific usually seems to involve spending time with locals at lovely islands, stopping at reefs for a week or so of diving, catching enough fish to eat along the way. And all the while the wind runs off the back of the main sail and flys straight into a 900 watt wind turbine, which keeps the computer and GPS going easily and tops up the onboard battery power supply. Humming along the Wellington harbor being powered by a sail of wind and generating energy at the same time just feels… right.

Changing the world one wall at at a time - day 1

I've been very lucky in the last couple of weeks a new friend over from Scotland painted me a picture of one of my favorite views, the view out to the surf from our family beach house. The thing that made me extra lucky, is that she made it 8 foot long and 4 foot high, so its a walls worth of inspiration. Here's day...(Read more)

Set your own standards and do more than just enough

It sometimes still surprises me when I see people who are surrounded by highly motivated people yet still do just enough to get by. To me it shows that they just miss the point. Life is not about getting the right incentives to do something, its not about getting the same things in return for your time that most other people do, as most people just...(Read more)
