Waiting for the bus, waiting for an appointment, waiting for reviews of a submitted paper, waiting for an answer… I have a problem with waiting. I know it is good to be mindful and enjoy the moment while waiting, but all this waiting is energy consuming. If I check thefreedictionary.com (which by the way is a great resource when writing any sort of text), and read the definition of waiting; “the act of staying in one place or remaining inactive in expectation of something”, I become even more frustrated. I am an action-kind-of-person. I like dynamic contexts, movement and change. So let’s shake it off and start move!
The sun is shining outside, the snow sparkles, and I just submitted an article about practical wisdom. If you haven’t already, listen to this inspiring talk by Barry Schwartz. Enjoy your day!
Being here in Montreal have given me many interesting opportunities and I am now happy and excited to say that I will be a member of the OZ concept team doing Me Myself And Wine – sessions. If you want to do a fun and useful exercise with your team or a group within an organization, club or elsewhere, contact me for more information about what it is, how it is done and what benefits comes with it. Cheers to that!
When too many thoughts are occupying my head, I always do something with my hands. Especially after finishing an article that required a lot of thinking. Preparing for the fall by re-painting one of the rooms. It feels good to do some easy changes in the house and see the result immediately. I believe there has to be balance between thinking with your head and doing with your hands.
It is a beautiful day here in Gothenburg and teaching is FUN! However, time flies and it is already time to plan for future research papers that can be submitted to this interesting conference – Living with Monsters.
I am excited to announce that I will be teaching a course at the University of Gothenburg this fall. The course will focus on leadership, control and strategies connected to information technology.
One done, more to come 🙂 Enjoy your read: The Drive for New Driving Interfaces
Finally! Got my conceptual paper accepted. Just waiting to hear from the production staff and do the very last editing before it is PUBLISHED!
Love the feeling when submitting a paper. All the work, energy and frustration that are put on paper are gone for a while. Until you get the reviews… But today I will Carpe Diem and move on 🙂
It feels good to get things done. I can now tick off two things on my to-do-list. Submitted two reviews and finally sent a proofread manuscript to a journal. But there are more things on the to-do-list, so here we go…
