Why we do what we do

October 13, 2014

Tony Robins’ TED Talk Why we do what we do – an invigorating talk on the “invisible forces” that motivate everyone’s actions. Needs of the personality and needs of the spirit.  ‘And the reason we grow is so we have something to give of value,  contributing beyond ourselves.’

What’s driving us: needs, beliefs, emotions. What’s driving other people. ‘The defining factor is never resources; it’s resourcefulness.’

pippi_paintingReading Pippi Longstocking (Pippi Långstrump) years after child-age one discovers unique insights which have probably been beyond one’s grasp as a child.

WordCamp Europe 2014

September 26, 2014

WPWordCamp Europe 2014 – 27 – 29 September 2014 Sofia. Interesting topics galore, fabulous people from all over the world, lots of fun for thinkers and doers alike.

I am asked these days what motivated me in becoming a volunteer. Happily blogging for 6 years now on a platform from which I constantly learn and meeting fantastic people in the same lane is enough of a motivation to return the gesture. Noblese oblige.
