Nono  Konopka - Lessons for a Truly Good Life


"He is changing the world one mile at a time." Ashton Kutcher

What do I really want? How do I find the right path for me? What should I do with my life? In an effort to answer these questions, Nono Konopka once made a decision that would have far-reaching consequences: instead of embarking on a normal working life, he set out with his friend – and no training whatsoever – to cycle from Berlin to Beijing, to raise funds for a primary school in Guatemala.

The trip, which attracts the attention even of Ashton Kutcher, leads them into searing deserts and deepest snow, and to encounters with brown bears and secret agents. But it's more than just an adventure, and Nono experiences the endless kilometres on his bicycle as lessons that are more useful than anything he could have learnt in the lecture hall. Stage after stage, he gains insights into how to deal with self-doubt and how to find motivation in hopeless situations. His most important message to us is: if you step outside your comfort zone, you can reach even the biggest of goals.
