Thursday Flash (51 and last)

Flash…for one last time.
After a year of publishing some hopefully interesting articles, it is time to think about a new concept for 2018. Maybe some more about consulting and coaching.

So this week will be my last Thursday Flash. I hope you enjoyed reading it and had some takeaways from the weekly column.
And, given this week’s selection, is an amazing source for personal development.

LOA and reasons you are or are not attracting success in your life – this article highlights what you need to do to make the LOA work.

Now are you ready to take the next step in your life. If not, give me a shout, I can help you with some advice and support.

And last but not least, if you are after success, and you read about the LOA, understand that success is something that must be attracted not pursued.

Easier said than done.

So look back at the year and realise how far you came. How much you achieved and what else there is to do.
Understand which success you want to achieve and where you want to go.

Please stay loyal and check out my regular Sunday Column or feel free to connect on LinkdedIn and stay in touch.

We’ll be back with more exciting content next year.

All the best for 2018 and beyond.

Cheers, and thank you,

Thursday Flash (50)

We are getting to the end of the year and the second last flash…

This post caught my eye on how successful people make smart decisions. Or are they?

Then this post about a growth mindset, written by no one else than myself, is a good post to reflect on how you approach the world.

And last but not least, this post looks at the self help industry that Tim Ferris co-created, and wonders if he or the people like him are able to help? I’d like to think so, particularly as life gets more complex, you want to get more help. A coach would do 🙂

Have a great week,

Thursday Flash (1)

Happy New Year….again.

I have been thinking on how I can improve this blog – besides a new profile picture – to add content that you find useful. Since, for the time being, I have more time for writing, I have more time for reading and sharing. I finished writing and editing and reviewing my next productivity book, so please stay tuned for more news over the next few months. Each week I want to share my most interesting articles and findings besides my personal opinion. Let’s see how we get on. And, I figured an own post would do justice, just because my Sunday Columns are getting quite long already.

It is a bit like Tim Ferris’ 5 Bullet Friday, however I think it is more useful to publish it on a Thursday. So I called it the Thursday Flash.

Top 3 articles I read:

1 How to only work 40 hours a week – really? Yes, I believe with the right company culture and the right attitude of your manager, you can be as productive as you are now with only 40 hours a week. Or even less to be honest. We measure far too much on time spend on the job than results. Being a veteran sales guy, I always remember the one guy who spends his whole day playing golf, not being in the office. Some would argue he never worked but playing golf was his working day – making connections, building relationships and closing the deals. Quality over quantity.

2 Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning. This very topic is key to the future of adtech. I have been researching a bit for this article and you can find references in the article itself. No, I am not a scientist or data geek, not yet anyway, but the nature of machines taking over to do some of my work, would be amazing. Or wouldn’t it be? The application of more and more technology in the adtech space is giving us so much opportunity. Having been on the forefront of RTB (real time bidding), later programmatic, now machine learning is exciting. Something I am truly passionate about.

3 Exertion Headaches – yes, I agree, we all had too much booze, cheese, fun and little or too much sleep in my case over Christmas. I am just not used to sleeping more than 6-7 hours. Also I felt like I didn’t exercise enough. I kept running, but then had a massage and took it easy. Why wouldn’t I for a while. Now, January being January, I am back to my routine. The 5 am alarm and weight lifting, strength exercises. And as usual it comes with some headaches as the body isn’t used to it anymore. They should be gone in 1-2 weeks but we shall see. They did disappear last time when I took a break from strenuous exercises. Also, I am cutting some food intake again, so January should see me slimming down a bit. Not yet decided on the ‘Dry January’ or not. Probably not 😉

Hopefully those articles are useful for you too, and you enjoy reading it.

Thanks and see you next time.
