Start with Why. Thoughts about Vision, Mission and Strategy…

Here it is: my first short #StayTheFHome article. Yesterday I needed a break from work behind the screen – so I went decluttering some old folders, stuff I wanted to do for a long time. Today I needed a break from remote work again – so I decided to write this article. Dance with what […]

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.

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 (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).
