Be Flexible

 

 

Instead of getting upset when your travel plans take a different turn, calm yourself down by pausing (count to 10 if it works for you!) and consider what’s really happening in the situation.

Check out this weird vs. different clip from Derek Sivers. Remember to always observe and learn in other cultures. Don’t assume things will happen just like they do in your culture.

Learn

 

 

If you will be spending time within a culture for the first time, learn about it before you go. Read a book or watch a movie about it, or talk to someone that grew up there.

Expand Your Borders is a book about the 10 cultural clusters of the world. It’s a great resource for your prep. It also has a brief list of dos and taboos for each area.
