On purposeful jewellery and living as an Agile Coach

A while ago I accidentally stumbled across the Eckhard-Busch-Stiftung by which is a German charity organisation aiming to support people impacted by mental health in different ways: through supporting research, families & friends and to make it okay to talk about mental health in our society. People with mental illnesses and in mental crisis’ are […]

Using the space that emerged wisely

About a month ago my 6-Minutes-Diary ran out of pages. One thing was crystal clear: I wanted to keep the journaling routine as it has value for different ‘customers’ of different ‘services’ in my life. In other words: establishing that habit and ‘making a vow’ worked really well. It didn’t take long to decide what […]

The streak – a story on habits, on bragging and on limiting beliefs

Recently I noticed a difference in something that is already a routine for me. At first, I didn’t spend much attention or even appreciation to that. Why? Yeah, because it appeared like a “small unimportant thing” for me. (sidenote: I learned that this kind of deprecational, judgemental thinking can contribute to serious health problems… but […]

OOP 2019 – Take care for the future

This year was already my third time at OOP ‘software meets business’ conference in Munich. I loved the mixture of “being back”, meeting a lot of “known faces” and also a couple of close friends as well as getting to know new people and establishing some new connections that might grow in the future. So […]

Change hurts!

On my first weeks with the 6-Minutes-Diary (…and three months later) The preceding post described in what situation I started out to use the 6-Minutes-Diary: needing a bit more structure and guiding than the Clarity Journal provided. Furthermore I was curious about the psychological backing the other journal from urbestself comes with. As of today […]

Different needs, different tools!

What made me change the journals earlier than expected… That unexpected clarity which I gained after some weeks working with the Clarity Journal made me take a medically forced prescribed rest to get healthy again. My days almost instantly looked quite different compared to how they looked when I started off with the Clarity Journal. […]

WTF?? Did I really want to be THAT honest to myself?

On my first weeks with the Clarity Journal Like already written in the initial blogpost of that series, the Clarity Journal (Klarheit Journal in German) was the first one I started my daily journaling experiment with. Before delving into some of my personal experiences, here are some key facts about the Clarity Journal: it is […]

Dipping my toes into Appreciative Inquiry

Recently I read about a combined approach of Agile and Appreciative Inquiry (AI) called Appreciative Agile on http://appreciativeagile.com. The much I am familiar with Agile the less I am with AI. The fact that it’s grounded in academia – and especially in Positive Psychology – (and my curiosity) made me quickly research to learn a […]

How to make the (journaling) habit stick…

A week ago I started sharing my journaling journey with you. As of today I am journaling since 74 days, doing it daily on 72 of those and having made two days of pause. That data is from my habit tracking app which I also used to track the progress of my new journaling habit. […]
