THOUGHT OF THE DAY

Dare to stop to look forward for a minute. Stop rowing your boat and get out your fishing gear if you want to. Lean back for just a minute. Enjoy the view. See how far you’ve come. Make a plan, not a survival strategy but an ambitious plan for a fulfilling life. What would you… Continue reading THOUGHT OF THE DAY

SLOWING DOWN OR SPEEDING UP?

Reading time: 2 minutes Thinking time: that's entirely up to you ;) Funny thing how the maximum speed limit in the Netherlands came down from 130 to 100 kilometers per hour during the day just as the Covid-19 virus obliged pretty much the whole world to slow down in all aspects as well.

THE BENEFITS OF BEING BORED

Reading time: 2 minutesThinking time: maybe 30? Yesterday I got really bored. So incredibly bored it made me feel sad and lonely.

THE SEARCH FOR CONNECTEDNESS

Reading time: 2 minutes   Being presented a potential business opportunity one simply can’t refuse, I had my first project group meeting last week. As we – four local entrepreneurs - all came running in in a hurry and with too many thoughts and ideas on our plates, we decided to start our meeting with… Continue reading THE SEARCH FOR CONNECTEDNESS

DE PARABEL VAN DE BARMHARTIGE SAMARITAAN

Leestijd: 2 minuten   Los van het feit dat ik als Vlaamse Katholiek ben opgevoed, heeft deze post op zich niet zozeer met geloof te maken. In alle eerlijkheid, ik moest het verhaal ook even opnieuw nalezen. Hoe een man overvallen werd door rovers en daarna half dood en - naakt langs de kant van… Continue reading DE PARABEL VAN DE BARMHARTIGE SAMARITAAN
