I just had a real revelation when I was stopped cold in my creative work by what seemed to me a really difficult problem. I thought about the solution for days. But I just couldn’t find an answer that was really satisfying to me. I was stuck.
And here is the surprising but genius solution to getting unstuck: When you are stuck, just move on with your next best idea.
Instead of thinking and waiting and thinking again, just move on! Use what you currently have and make a step forward.
Time is one of the most valuable resources you have. How and where you spend your time determines the quality of your life. And you need to get control over your time.
Especially now as I’m personally becoming a father of two baby-girls, I have to rethink how I spend the very little time I have left for me most effectively.

Or have you wondered why, after reading up on so self-help that you still don’t feel like a better person?
That’s where the problems come in.Continue Reading →
When I talk to friends and colleagues about purpose, I get a very diverse mixture of how they understand what a life purpose is. Some know their purpose intuitively, others never even asked themselves the question.

So when you’re answering the question of your life’s purpose, you are really answering: Why do you exist?Continue Reading →
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can find my voice. Or better, how I can refine and clarify my voice. Because obviously I already have a voice. If you think about it, especially if you are a blogger or express yourself otherwise publicly, you also already have a voice.
Your voice is what you have to say to the world. So make it worth hearing!
It is something that what’s to get out of you. You have the feeling that you wouldn’t have really lived without letting the world know.
Your voice is in fact, your contribution to mankind.
The question is: What is your voice singing? And is it heard?Continue Reading →
