This year in February I attended Play4Agile again. Some time after this unconference I stumbled upon the book 'CTRL Shift' by Mike Bonifer and Jessie Shternshus. Udo Wiegärtner and Adrian Suciu held one session at #p4a18 about unlearning and about this book. Of course, I immediately ordered it and t…

In Germany we say "between the years" if we want to refer to the time between Christmas and New Years Eve. In this time I travelled for 5 days to Leipzig in Eastern Germany to attend the 34th Chaos Communication Congress (34c3 in short).

One of the principles at the Congress is that All creatures a

Recently I got in contact with Patrick Sauerwein and it turned out that we share Meditation experience. Exchanging with him on that boosted me with such energy that I decided to invest in an experiment: doing mindfulness practises more regularly again. To be even more precise: I will practise mindfu…

It's been some time I wrote about handing in my thesis and I promised to blog about it, right? 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 a systematic literature review on the broad ar…

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 software developer after university.

A story about managers...

One of my three goals I am focussing on this year is doing a healthy marathon in October. Running seems more than ever my form of applied mindfulness, my kind of moving meditation. This said and seeing nature waking up, enjoying the sun and everything blossoming, I am running even more than I did be…

Lately I came across a couple of occasions for applied cognitive reframing. Just three recent examples:

  • "I am wasting 2,5 hours per day for commuting." versus "I have time to sort my brain, be on the water, hear music or even do sports - and I am arriving at some already in a mood ready for my eveni…

Der Start auf der Play4Agile

Ich bin immer wieder sehr positiv überrascht, wieviel Offenheit und Vertrauen in vermeintlich kurzer Zeit entstehen kann, wenn der passende Rahmen besteht und Menschen mit kompatiblen Wertesystemen aufeinandertreffen…

At Play4Agile in 2017 (#p4a17 for short) there was a great Open Space Session on Mindfulness. Bettina Ruggeri and Armin Schubert initiated the session and there were a lot of other people contributing to it…

New Year's Eve 2016 has been special for me as I deliberately spent it on my own. Just on my own. For the first time ever.

Looking back on yesterday it was kind of 'slack time' for me. Nothing to do, nothing to achive, no FOMO (fear of missing out). Just spending a quiet evening with nice food and…

A couple of days ago I set one of my targets for 2017: I'll do the full Marathon in October 2017. I actually signed up, payed the fee, whoop! No way back! Yes, of course, there would be a way back e.g. I won't risk my health if I might have a serious cold at that time. I noticed that it is more abou…

Lately I had different occasions where I got in contact with creating & using a new terminology. These made me think about how mindfulness and communication play together when focusing on language and terminology.
