What makes us do the things that we do ? I am about to embark on a treacherous 120km motorcycle drive across the mountains of Northern Thailand from Chiang Mai to Pai to deliver this drumstick to a friend so that he can perform his Shamanic Drum Journey. This is one of a line of drumsticks. The previous one was destroyed due to insect infestation and the one before that was eaten by the dog !

The point is, why do we do the things that we do ? How little of an excuse do we need to do something that we wanted to do anyway (like make this journey) and how much extra motivation do we need to do something that we don’t really want to do (like going to work) ? I once flew for 11 hours from Munich, Germany to Bangkok, Thailand to deliver a lightbulb to a friend. Well it was a special one with gold reflective coating inside.
