Go Freelance!

Or not! I’ve tried the main three options you can choose from when picking a job statute. I’ve started as an employee, ran for a while my own business and now I’m a freelancer. I’ve experienced them all. In the technology businesses I’m circling, I meet a lot of people who dream of becoming a […]

A glimps into the future

The new year’s vibe gives me the perfect excuse to take the liberty to have a look into the future. As I’m not an air monger, I’m not gifted with supernatural powers and I always have a big bag of pragmatism and criticism at hand, we’ll have to do it with quite reasonable building blocks […]

Why?

All around you, people do stupid things. Often very stupid things. They’re idiots. You can go full force against them, headfirst. I know a couple of people with powerful skulls. They beat an average idiot easily back on track. But does that solves the problem or merely makes the symptoms disappear for some time? 95% […]

Managing tasks with Gmail

Nothing worse than forgetting that critical thing you needed to do? Well, even worst is polluting your brainpower by trying to remember it, leaving no power left to mangle about interesting things. Getting task/reminders out of your head is one of the core concepts of David Allen’s “Getting Things Done”[1]. I’m well convinced of the […]

A quadruple plea for focus

One of my all-time pet subjects is “focus.” My preference for simplicity is one reason why I like focus, but there is a multitude of other reasons to focus, in all kinds of different areas.

I'm available

After a little sabbatical, the hunt for a new challenge as (interim) operations manager is open. There are of course the required resume, LinkedIn profile, but to quickly get an idea if there is a match, I’ve got three times three bullets: I offer… pragmatism optimism perseverance I’m backed by… broad domain knowledge (radio to […]

The numbers are a lie!

A well-known example: time registration with a time clock. It measures with incredible precision when employees arrive and when they leave. Result: exact data of the purest form. You sort this data and fire the employees with the lowest registered hours. Well done, a data-driven decision.

Sabbatical

I took a sabbatical, not so much because I had to recharge, reinvent myself, find my inner self, no just because I could enjoy life for a while in a different way. Are you worried that I bored the hell out of me? Not to worry, I had a great time doing the things below.

Take a step back

You have heard this before. Probably many times. But, really, when was the last time you took one step back and had a look? Stepping out of your regular treadmill is of such importance that I will shamelessly try to sell it once again!
