Do you still keep your structured daily journal? Or even worse: are you still keen on starting one? Obviously you didn’t read parts one and two of this series. Wait, you DID??

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 […]

Fact: Yes, I need to get my hair cut very soon. Then some interesting conversation between different parts in my head started. For now I […]

Trials over experiments – Or: a fool with a tool is still…

… a fool? Yesterday I felt triggered to state my opinion on personality tests (again). On twitter. Other people’s answers triggered more and broader thinking on this in me. Later in the day I had a great conversation with an occupational (I/O) psychologist. We were NOT talking about personality tests in particular but about my […]
