My excitement addiction

14. Aug, 2016

I have a problem.

Most people seem super boring to me.

I get frightened by the thought of something like a stable traditional family life with perfect balance.

The fight to own customers

12. Aug, 2016

It has become increasingly clear to me lately what it really means to "own" a customer. Of course no company really owns it's customers. We merely serve their needs, and they get rid of us the minute we don't.

The purpose of a world government

30. Jul, 2016

There is a lot of conspiracy floating around on the dark corners of the internet about some "New world order" that is taking over the planet step by step.

Sometimes prominent politicians mention a "world government" or a "new world order", and everytime bring a lot of wood to the conspiracy fire.

So that stops you from even wondering if this world government thing could be beneficial.

We all need spirituality

I just saw one of my old aquaintances from high school post about his experience teaching young people about faith - and in the proces talking about:

​Finding a dream

11. Jan, 2016

I don't exactly know what I want. Very few people do. But it seems the few who do reach higher with less effort.

The key seems to be focus and clarity.

But that whole rant is all boring. Ambition can really be boring. So I thought I would try to paint a picture of my dream instead.

And since I am a bad painter it will have to be done with words.

The power of video

06. Dec, 2015

It is easy to build up an online presense. Nowadays everybody is online through some social media. But it still doesnt mean that we get to understand who that person is as an observer.

I see that the people we really seem to follow online are the ones that video blog. Video is insanely more personal than both text and pictures.

What do we want?

14. Oct, 2015

I am sitting here trying to twist my brain to hit some inspiration out of it. It's been awhile since I'we been writing.

I realize my life is quite stable and predictable at the moment.

Thoughts on spending time with myself

25. May, 2015

In some way it is total freedom to be completely alone. I choose what to do, what to eat, and when i want to do things.

I am drawn to and fascinated by the idea of spending time alone.

I love esthetics. And I started to appreciate art. Here is my first humble contribution:

Success in life = the meta game

11. Feb, 2015

A lot of people talk about hard work as the most important factor for success in life.

I must disagree.

​My projects for 2015

03. Feb, 2015

In the limited spare time that is given to us, I chose to devote some of mine to urban gardening and something I call "Creators Club".

What I left out

  • 3D printing. I might still play around with it, but not on a serious level.
  • Travel/international community. Not in the sense that I will stop travelling or host events. But I'm not gonna build an organization or community in 2015.

How to get back on track after a vacation

03. Jan, 2015

If I take time out of my regular schedule to do something else it can be hard to immediately fall back in. Especially if it's a great vacation.

The reason why is a mystery to me. Of course since I am self employed, I could choose to just extend the vacation. So there are no strict obligations which is part of the problem, but that still doesn't explain why.

The life of young people

01. Jan, 2015

We sit and listen. We learn. We are formed.

In our free time we mingle with each other. We play. We dance.

We care about the here and now. The next exam. The next party. The next girl/guy.
