Enough with the digital disruption – show some stewardship also

Every morning on my way to and from work, I listen to smart people talking to other smart people about being human. For example, this morning I listened to Krista Tippett talking to Maria Popova about creating meaning in a digital age. In one of the passages, Maria quotes a conversation she had with Andrew Sullivan: POPOVA: And then he said, “You know, culture needs stewardship, not disruption.” TIPPETT: Mm....

Reinventing ourselves: Tim Ferriss, James Altucher, and Constructive Developmental Theory

The last six months I have made it a habit to read and listen to the books and podcasts from Tim Ferriss and James Altucher, and then apply some of their ideas. For example, Tim’s book “Tools of Titans” contains a tremendous number of tricks and tips to live smarter, while James’ books in the Choose Yourself series helps you build a stronger foundation for everything in life. Meanwhile, via...

Culture, Machine Intelligence, and Ways of Working

As my followers know, I have written about the digital workplace for some years. Lately, however, I have grown somewhat tired of it: It seems we either only talk about the latest semi-smart upgrades in Office 365 and how they can be used, or some futuristic views of how we will work in 5 years from now. In one sense these are interesting subjects. In another sense, they are somewhat...

How #PKMastery helped me create a blog on #AI

I have attended Harold Jarche's Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) workshop twice, and they have been wonderful learning opportunities. There is a kind of meta-learning involved that I seldom experience otherwise: I learn about how I learn. One of the images Harold uses to describe PKM is this Image borrowed from Harold Jarche's site Harold describes PKM as: PKM is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make...

My new morning routine, thanks to Tim Ferriss

Ever since I read Tim Ferriss' book "Tools of Titans", I have started to change how I live. One such thing is my morning routine. Before the book, it was the standard semi-haze, trying to eat, shower, and read the newspaper before waking the kids. Now I do the following every morning: Yoga for my back and overall mobility. Takes a few minutes, but helps me avoid the back pain...

Recommended jobs via LinkedIn is a sure miss, and AngelList is smarter

For some reason, LinkedIn sends me its recommended jobs via e-mail a few times a week. And each time it is a sure miss compared to what I have described on my LinkedIn profile. The last e-mail I received took some wild guesses: For sure, here are several interesting companies, but it is closer to a random draw of jobs than something that would help if I actually was looking...

Change – this time it is personal

I have written before on change management, and especially how it has failed to support companies. But that's change on the macro level. Now it's time for changing myself. I started the year by reading Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. If you ever thought about changing your life for real, then read this book now. It has nearly no quick solutions. Instead, it has smart solutions. Really smart solutions. I have...

Change can be hard, but it is necessary

All companies are going through changes, and must handle them in some way. Things are no different where I work: Our CEO has resigned to be the CEO of a larger industrial company. Meanwhile, we have a strong and experienced management team to steer the company. One of our competitors just announced that shareholders representing 86% of our shares have accepted their offer, and they can potentially buy us. Until...

Making sense of the Office 365 suite

It is hard making sense of the Office 365 suite from Microsoft. Barely had we had time to grasp that they have included Yammer in all Office 365 tenants, and what that means. Then Microsoft threw their Teams app into the game, and it became even more challenging to understand which product does what. To help us, they gave an excellent introduction to the product's capabilities: [x_video_embed type="16:9"][/x_video_embed] It is, however, not...
