Stop starting, start finishing – for real!

Catching up and warming up after the break… Yesterday it has been exactly three months since I wrote my last blogpost here on ‘Harvest, rest and celebrate… and possibly take some writing pause’. I wanted to be serious with ‘(stop starting,) start finishing’ – I really took the writing pause – and I’ve been successfull […]

Harvest, rest and celebrate…

… and possibly take some writing pause The last weeks were just crazily filled with learning, travelling, conferences, more people work, studying… and living. The little space inbetween I tried to use for resting – even if that meant breaking my rhythm to blog at least once a month. Harvest! As I really want to […]

Agile Austria 2018 in Graz

A personal review and some (speaker’s) impressions As part of the review team I was already being involved for quite some time with Agile Austria. Now in May 2018 the time to actually travel to Graz had finally come. After some days of holiday in Vienna I arrived in the beautiful city of Graz – […]

Explorative running

On all the stuff running can do for you(r life) Since a couple of weeks I am doing endurance running again. And I am doing it in quite a disciplined way. This endurance thingy helps with the black dog – who on the one hand wants me to believe by all means that he doesn’t […]

Besides being a reviewer in the Developer Practises and the SocITy tracks and providing one session about Leadership development in the […]

Feedback? It’s a present!

A random, deep going experience on receiving feedback I received feedback today. Written feedback (written, for good reasons). Want to guess what happened? . . . . . . . . . . I found myself instantly looking for “the good” and “the bad” things. I was literally looking for judgement. I found myself kind […]

Scrum Master in Disguise

Impressions from the Product Owner Camp 2017 in Frankfurt Last week I spent two awesome days together with two of my colleagues in Frankfurt attending the 2nd Product Owner (PO) Camp. I had to wear this fancy lanyard which labelled me a “Product Owner” (even though I currently work in the role of a Scrum […]

Bringing a young dog to a fitness studio?

How it is like to do strength training mindfully Recently I got in contact with Patrick Sauerwein and it turned out that we share Meditation experience. Exchanging with him on that boosted me with such energy that I decided to invest in an experiment: doing mindfulness practises more regularly again. To be even more precise: […]

Meeting old men

Two observations that old beliefs slowly got obsolete Today I was running in the woods. I stopped by at my favorite spot which is a small lake. Usually it is calm and quite there – and I am the only person. Today there was an old man with his two dogs. The dogs were enjoying […]
