What’s Next?

16 May 2017 I have been gone for a week, but now I am back and I am hungry for something new – how about you? In the last couple of month I got a bit slow and parked my favourite ideas. Now they are nicely arranged on a shelf for display – while they are getting dusty and pale. I have moved my …

How much self-actualization can you bear?

25th April 2017 Do you remember what you wanted to become as a child? My dad asked me when I was 5 years old. We were still living in East Berlin – behind the wall. My answer was clear: “I want to go to the West.” Fortunately the wall came down two years later, but my wish for self-actualization is deeply engrained. …

Can we talk about someone else

21 Feb 2017 I spent a beautiful week in the Netherlands, working with colleagues and clients. Back in Berlin and feel satisfied and a bit empty. What do I have to share? Not much.

Simply addicted to adrenalin

08 Jun 2016 This week feels crazy – I don’t find enough time for anybody or anything. Does this sound familiar? Today I went to the hairdresser and was only 5 minutes late. But I had a call scheduled right after the hairdresser so I got quite nervous when she paused cutting my hair because we were in the middle of an …

The art of forgiving

12 Apr 2016 This morning I witnessed a mother correcting and disciplining her child nonstop. I was quite annoyed by her constant ‘No! No! No!’.
