I love to travel, but sometimes it’s difficult, even challenging.

I don’t always speak the language of the countries that I visit. The food is different. A location isn’t on a map or GPS. But I’ve never regretted a trip.

The challenges of travel also can help you navigate in the world. How?

Through travel you can learn to live with discomfort and uncertainty. You’ll find that when you get good at this, you can do anything.

Through travel, you keep learning. You learn about people, places, history.

Often you’ll find ways that it intersects with other aspects of your life. On a trip to Italy, I learned how art was the equivalent of today’s Facebook — a way to capture life and communicate with others, for example.

Travel helps get you off the beaten path and allows you to explore new ways and new things.

If you’re feeling stagnant in your job, perhaps it’s time to take a trip.
