speaking break

When I travel a lot, I dream of being back home for a while so that I can “get things done”. My God, the traveling is a giant productivity killer!


However, when I am home for a couple of months, I yearn for new events, conferences, and gatherings. Because, even for an introvert like me, working alone can feel so… alone.

the-connected-company

Last year, I read the book The Connected Company by Dave Gray, and I gave it five stars. As an experiment, I decided to reach out to Dave with a couple of questions, and he graciously took time to reply.

meteor-crater

Many years ago, during a trip through the USA, a friend and I visited Meteor Crater, a giant crater left behind by a meteorite. At the bottom of the crater, there are some remains of a small airplane. We were told that, many years ago, the plane had unintentionally flown into the space contained within the crater, and was then unable to get out.

Me 3.0

Some people noticed that my avatar pictures on the social networks were deviating from the real-life version at a slow but steady pace.


Yes, I’m getting older!

Thanks for pointing it out.

helping-hand

People from all over the world sign up to join the Happy Melly business network because–apparently–they think we’re doing a good job. That’s so awesome. It also increases the pressure on us to report on what we’re doing. And it makes me think harder: What can I do to help people enjoy their job?

champfrogs-2

I have blogged before about my experiment with a sketchkeynote format. In this presentation, the entire slide deck consists of hand-made drawings. And when I present, the drawings appear on-screen one-by-one, while the item I’m talking about is always highlighted.

Backlogs Are Not Waste

To some people, to-do lists and product backlogs are waste. I disagree. I see them as repositories of ideas and options.


There is nothing wasteful about the concept of a backlog. A backlog itself is not waste. What matters is how people use them.

Improv Cards

The Improv Cards game contains 52 playing cards with pictures on them. You play it with at least three people, though best is probably a table of four to six players.

No Bureaucracy

On just a single day, I had to deal with various activities that I can only describe as bureaucracy.
