  • 1. my journal is my Twitter, and my blogs
    2. Long term goal: http://bit.ly/StartupAccelerator; short term: establishing a digital communication agency to bring technology, science, and art together
    3. Wake-up every morning at 7am (quite a routine, and not a must)
    4. Hm, meditate - having an open view out of the window while connected with the world
    5. ... morning walk, this is lacking
    6. This I do often, e.g. initiating Google visit for Russian minister
    7. Mass media - only culture radio, MDR Figaro, and once in while a paper (often in the library)
    8. Questioning the status quo, as things that happen disturb me or are not to understand, make me a contrarian on a daily basis, alway on the lookout for better solutions to present issues
    9. Exercising, and honing personal strengths (only cycling, and playing Ultimate Frisbee are a bit rusty at the moment)
    10. Reading - my passion, just finished Ayn Rand's 'Fountainhead' in English (not my mother tongue in about four weeks - not to mention I was reading other books along)
    11. The day starts with an English tea, and then it is water water water & fruit tea
    12. An espresso (one, two) is a must a day
    13. 'If you don't want ideas, don't ask me!'
    14. My Palm Treo 650 (2005 while at BMW) is my 'electronic mind' around the clock
    15. Life is a hack of #LeanThinking, daily, hourly, every second :-)

  1. 15 Productivity Hacks!
  2. Keep A Journal 1 Journals provide clarity of mind, develop your writing skills, and help you set goals. “Please read my diary, look through my things and figure me out.” -Kurt Cobain
  3. Set Short And Long Term Goals 2 If you do not define your yearly, monthly, and weekly goals…how will you know if you’ve achieved them? Do not rely on memory. “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” -Albert Einstein
  4. Sleep & Wake-Up Early 3 Save the “midnight oil”, and wake up fresh and early in the morning instead -it will pay off in every way. “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” -Benjamin Franklin
  5. Meditate 4 Breath properly, have the right posture, live in the present, and let go of insignificant worries hurting your creativity and productivity. "It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways. " -Buddha.

  13. Drink Caffeine 12 It will increase your alertness, wake up your senses, improve your productivity, creativity and even short- term memory! “Were it not for coffee one could not write, which is to say one could not live.” – Honoré de Balzac
  14. Brainstorm! 13 The benefits of brainstorming can be fantastic. Embrace sufficient different ideas and the right one is sure to come very soon! “It is easier to tone down a wild idea than to think up a new one.”- Alex Osborn
  15. Calendar & Scheduling 14 Keep a calendar to schedule meetings, goals, projects, and even you email and social networks to reduce wasted time. “Yesterday is but a dream, Tomorrow is only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.” – Sanskrit
