Learnings from my first virtual co-working experiment

It all started with a tweet from Deborah Preuss and a chat with a close friend about what the current full-time at-home remote working does to each of us. Deb’s tweet was about how to do virtual co-working and it sounded inspiring to me. So my friend and me agreed on a date with not-so-many […]

Learning and networking with books @ AgileTable Bodensee [*DE]

Liebe Agilistinnen und Agilisten rund um den Bodensee (und darüber hinaus), vergangenen Donnerstag durften wir mit dem 22. #AgileTableBodensee wieder einmal bei Bosch.IO (ehemals Bosch Software Innovations) in Immenstaad zu Gast sein. Die Räumlichkeiten dort eigneten sich perfekt für unser Vorhaben: Buchstrudeln oder – in Englisch – ‘swashbooking’. Ich selbst habe die Methode bei einem […]

OOP 2020 – DevOps culture simulation & Starting #TrainerHacks

At #OOPmuc this year – beside sketchnotes and other stuff – I had the pleasure to step Into the Unknow by attending a half-day workshop with Dana Pylayeva. I was so curious to finally learn about her DevOps culture simulation with Lego and chocolate. As you can see from the tweet below, the workshop itself […]

10 reasons why you should _NOT_ start Bullet Journaling (IV)

Okay, I see… you are either (still) curious about Bullet Journaling or you are already on your journey of regular written (self-)reflection and find it useful. (Pssst, I tell you a secret: either way I am very happy about that! :)) With this fourth and closing part (see parts one, two, three) I share two […]

OOP 2020 – Into The Unknown – Minimum Viable Blogpost

This year I decided to try a new approach to blogging after a full week of OOP ‘software meets business’ conference: no more telling myself “this needs to be a full review” (whatever kind of “full” that is ;-)), no more “waiting until I have collected all that what I wanted to write-up”. On Learning […]

How to quit smoking?!

My answer on “How to quit smoking?” would be “Instantly! If need be with professional help!”. Of course, because: we already learned that smoking has VERY BAD effects on the human body and health, haven’t we? “She is smoking??” If you know me personally, you might know: I do not smoke. “So why does she […]

10 reasons why you should _NOT_ start Bullet Journaling (II)

After reading the first part of this “Beware of Bullet Journaling”-series, I hope that – IF you practised this method to free your self to achieve what truly matters to you – already stopped doing it. 😉 If not, here are three more arguments why you should really stop it! In fact, Bullet Journaling can […]

10 reasons why you should _NOT_ start Bullet Journaling (I)

As you might remember, I started reading ‘The Bullet Journal Method’ by Ryder Carroll early in May this year (see this last post for details). The intention back then was to learn about this method to then decide if Bullet Journaling is the next step and boost on my journaling journey. For Christmas I collected […]

Critical Mass

On agile values coming to life – yes, life, for real! Imagine someone having a clear vision – a vision no smaller than saving the planet. Then they call for action to gather with bicycles on a cold, it-could-rain-again-anytime day. And people follow that call! I witnessed exactly this last week while attending a Critical […]
