amazee's intellectual soul

today i read a blog definition by biz stone: "a blog is a collection of digital content that, when examined over a period of time, exposes the intellectual soul of its author or authors". quite vague you might think as this applies to all texts written by a human being. however, i like this more psychological perspective and i'm definitely looking forward to see amazee's intellectual soul one year from now!

tetris

ich erinnere mich gerne daran: als ich ein kind war träumte ich nach exzessiven gameboy-orgien manchmal tetris. sehr schnelles, sehr schwieriges tetris natürlich, was spass machte, aber auch stressig war so mitten in der nacht. als waldorfschüler hab ich dies natürlich kritisch reflektiert, kam aber zum schluss, dass es durchaus normal sei und meiner ganzheitlichen entwicklung nicht im wege stünde.

looking for a christmas present?

even though the retailers herald christmas earlier every year i know now that i'll end up rushing through the malls chasing for Christmas presents on the last possible day in the last possible hour...

a must watch!

found some entrepreneurial brainfood, an informative yet entertaining film by Roman Fichmann. looks like that guy is not just a good lawyer but also a gifted sales person, and looks like we did everything right so far...

angels and dreams

the past few months have been full of adrenalin and surprises. building up a company doesn't have a lot to do with daily routine... except for turning on the computer early in the morning, getting coffee and reading what has happened in the world over night. apart from that, i have dealt with things i haven't done before. three things were (and still are) very dominant in our minds, hearts and dreams: 1) finding an angel investor, 2) recruiting a head technology and 3) a head marketing.

so short the day....

...and such a nice job. everything's so good about living an entrepreneurial life: of course there are downs too, but all in all it's so exciting and fulfilling that I could go on working without sleep!! and i promise, no drugs involved...

entrepreneurial sports

sitting in the train today, i was asking myself what sports have most positive side effects on one's entrepreneurial characteristics (e.g. risk tolerance, boldness, flexibility, endurance). after starting with soccer and checking through other popular sports like basketball, beach tennis or pocket billard i soon realized that no sport can be classified as THE entrepreneurial sport. boxing's good for your endurance, but doesn't really train you to think in complex systems; chess helps you think in complex systems but doesn't really train you boldness; basejumping helps you extend your risk tolerance but dosn't really train your endurance... so i chose to look for the best combo of 3. and my winner is... rugby, horseriding and mountaineering! why rugby? because it teaches you to play a tough, fast and adaptive game with and against a loyal and rehearsed brotherhood. why horseriding? because it teaches you patience and the capability to communicate and collaborate with a being that speaks another language. why mountaineering? because it's a team sport again. like rugby you have to take risks, know your buddies and train well. unlike rugby it's a calm and silent sport where you never exactly know (if and) when you're going to arrive, especially if you don't take all external factors into calculation. so know i thought about what to do i'll have to use the next train ride to think about how to find the time...
