Iwan constantly tries to Live by celebrating and respecting all the happenings in Life, and trying to keep himself as much open-minded as it possible. Iwan learnt a lot from Gary Vaynerchuck on only dealing with things which you really like (to do). With obsession, with FLOW. Being opened for new people, new places (Couchsurfing), new skills, new ideas, ingenious thoughts (TED.com). Learnt from Francis of Assisi, Gandhi, Pope John Paul II, and some others, that not only the bad guys who rocks. Learnt from the native americans, the japanese people,  and some others and by doing full day “performance-hikings” that to live with the nature, and treat it as an equal partner is not only a good deal to survive, but the only option.
