    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.

    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

    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.
