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 […]

Courage is fear walking

So, I’ve been quite brave this morning. Some would say “nah, that was just a trivial, little thing” or “don’t brag with that”. This blog post is not about bragging. And it is also not about measuring or comparing my action. It is about gratitude. It is about inspiration. It is about life. Let’s start […]

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.

Now that this topic is “done-done”, feedback from university supervisor as well as grading is there, I can finally do so. Yay! The thesis’ topic was to create […]

Managers are wiser than average and subordinates are dumber?!

A little story of my life… plus an (uncomfortable) observation Recently I had a discussion where I was involved very passionately. It was in a group of people I trust very much. There I opened up and shared a story during discussion. A story of how I perceived managers during my first years being a […]

Zwischenmenschliches Debugging – Kommunikationsüberwachung mal anders

Unser menschliches Gegenüber ist wie eine undokumentierte Thirdparty-Library: Wir müssen erst herausfinden, wie er/sie „tickt“, um zusammenarbeiten zu können. Und selbst bei bekannten Libraries gibt es immer wieder Überraschungen. Mit manchen Zeitgenossen geht Zusammenarbeiten besser, mit anderen weniger gut. Woran liegt das? Und was trage ich selbst dazu bei? Die aktuellen Slides zu meinem Talk […]
