    Time for a Speaking Break, and a Writing Streak

    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.

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.

    Introducing: 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.

    How Can I Help You Enjoy Your Job?

    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: A SketchKeynote Presentation

    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

    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.

    No.

    Last week, I had a nice Skype call with a reader who was seeking my advice on becoming an author and speaker, and I gave him some pointers. I normally don’t schedule calls with random people asking for a favor, but this time I made an exception. I had a good reason.
