A colorful tale – I

Grandfather sat in his rocking chair by the fireplace. He seemed absentminded. More absentminded than usual, if that is even possible. Since I can remember, he lives a withdrawn life. Growing up without a father or a mother, living and being raised by my grandparents was already difficult for me. It was even more difficult feeling a disconnect between my grandfather and myself. When I tried to ask my grandma, if I did something wrong he just shook her head, embraced me and said, “give him time”. But she also didn’t want to explain what it was about.

Finding purpose

Find your purpose. For most people, this is easier said than done. I’d like to take you on my own journey to discover my purpose. In sporadic intervals, I will reflect on what my purpose might be and how I can find it. In this entry, I want to reflect about the connection between our interests and our purpose.

Thoughts about Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, the day to cherish our loved significant other, a day that can be the cause of beautiful moments but also despair. That is why I want to dedicate this entry to those of you who are or feel alone. I can speak from my own experience that this day was not the most pleasant of days for me. I felt lonely and was longing for my soulmate to finally come to make my days brighter. I hope you already realize the fault in this belief.

Chris Meid – Eye Of The Tiger (feat. Tabor & Phyne)

Without music life would be dull. Music seems to speak to our primal instincts. Music is used in medicine, music helps patients to express and therefore process difficult emotions and experiences. Music can be one of the greatest motivators. When I was younger, and we went to a club to party, I was not only there to meet my friends or a nice girl, but I also loved to dance. And I still do. While I write this entry, my head is nodding to the beat of the song below.

I want to share this wonderful piece of art with you. Live, sing, dance and love!

Why all this greed?

At the moment, I am watching the Netflix series “Dirty Money” by Alex Gibney. And oh boy am I angry. I am aware that the show is designed to create emotions and that is not totally objective, but I like the fact that it also listens to people who are affected. The series is about companies and also individuals who are crazy rich and who used the system to exploit people. And often those people who have no chance to fight for themselves. While I watch this documentary and I shake my head, I ask myself: why all this greed?

Give praise to creators

Creating something where there hasn’t been something before is always difficult. This is true for big things such as founding a company, but also small things like coming up with a first concept at work. It is also much easier to build on top of this work, give feedback for adjustments, or criticize. Good leaders should be aware of that, especially when assessing work and giving praise.
