Luca Fantuzzi is an Italian citizen who has recently returned to
Italy from the US in light of the coronavirus outbreak. Italy is
one of the countries most strongly affected by the outbreak, and
Fantuzzi has gone back to be with family. In this episode, he
discusses his recent experiences traveling and observing how this
outbreak has affected Italy.
Top three takeaways:
Fantuzzi had some family friends who recently contracted the
virus, and it was at this point that he realized the gravity of
this situation. You understand best the effects of the outbreak
once it affects you or someone in your family.
This is an interesting situation in that some people are
effectively displaced from work, whereas others are working twice
as hard, in particular people in the healthcare industry. This
ultimately depends on your profession and whether it is considered
The best thing to do in this situation is stay home and not
interact with too many people. Staying home is the best way to be
“generous” and help in this situation. Even though this means not
going and hanging out with friends, it is much more beneficial to
just stay home and spend time with family.
Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries. I have always thought that I was planting the seeds of wisdom while in faraway lands. Through experiences with foreign people, cultures, concepts, and ways of doing things I learned much more than anything I could've done while at home. I interview amazing guests, bestselling authors, scientists, successful business people, dating experts, travel junkies, polyglots (people who speak more than 3 languages), and anybody who I think is interesting for the growth of our listeners and I as people. I think by doing this we can plant the seeds of wisdom which will ultimately lead to our success in career, business, money, relationships, self-worth, and generally being a more well-rounded person. But it requires you to be active making this happen. What do you think?
