Predecentralism

At the beginning of 2019, none of the new theories and labels for the era after postmodernism, which itself seems to have come to an end, have so far gained widespread acceptance. Post-postmodernism, trans-postmodernism, post-millennialism, pseudo-modernism. digimodernism or metamodernism are some of the attempts to find an appropriate label for the times we are living in. My suggestion is: Predecentralism. With predecentralism I mean an era before most of our

The Meaning Of Life

Speaking in your mother tongue doesn‘t stress you at all, while having a conversation in another language might result in hard mental work. Even if you are fluent, let‘s say, in french, it most probably requires a significant effort to produce the melodious timbre of a Parisian. Whereas we have internalized and synchronized our native languages with our thoughts, we have to systematically translate our thinking into foreign words. This

Don‘t Resist, Don‘t Judge, Don‘t Inhere!

Today, I stumbled upon this interview with molecular-biologist-turned-buddhist-monk, Matthieu Ricard (in German). A few years ago, I listened to his famous Altruism and although my favorite way of meditation is not focusing on a specific topic, s.a. love, or altruism, but trying not to think at all, I’m absolutely convinced by his general approaci of altruism. In his interview he demonstrates that he’s a very practical person: referring to the

The Enterprise Evolution: From Hierarchichal Institutions To Protocols

From the early days of capitalism, when from 1633 the Hollandische Mercurius referred  to capitalists as the owners of capital, on to David Ricardo who, in his Principles of Political Economy and Taxation  is seen as the one who actually coined the term capitalism, until today: the structure and behavior of the enterprise as the main capitalist entity, hasn’t changed that much. With the advent of blockchain technology, the evolution

Just Do It!

If I want to drink something, I do it. If I want to go to bed, I do it. If I want to listen to the music, I do it. If I want to go out for dinner, I do it. if I want to see my friends, I do it. If I want to play a backhand topspin, I do it. If I want to launch a new website,

Connecting The Dots

The days between X-Mas and New Year’s Eve are somewhat special for me: formally, I decide not to work, and most part of the day that’s true. But since I have been an entrepreneur all my life, there’s no distinct line between business and non-business, these days provide the time for reflections – how was the past year? – and for thoughts about goals and instruments for the approaching next

Acceptance, joy and enthusiasm

A few days ago I saw a photo of a burning giant 2016 symbol on Twitter. For many of us there’s no need for explanation: this year’s major events seemingly justify to regard 2016 as a lost year. And from each single event’s perspective that may be true. Alas!  Should we really burn 2016? Of course, not. Acceptance I suggest a different approach: let’s do as the Buddhists do. There

The Next Big Thing? Neuroplasticity.

I’ve had two personal Eureka moments right after another, just recently. You know these moments: suddenly it’s all crystal-clear – and the main question is why you just did not realize it before. First, for me it’s a foregone conclusion that the blockchain is the biggest and most valuable technological innovation. If you’re interested in that stuff you can find my argument on Datarella.  On the private side, I have

New Product Development in the Age of Smart Things

If you’re responsible for new product development in your company, you will be familiar with the several steps of that process. Experts mostly separate the new product development process into seven or eight steps, starting with idea generation and finishing with a post launch review. The fact that more and more things become smart; i.e. they either feature some intelligence or they are connected and controlled through the IoT, has

The Paradigm Shift

The only human being who wants change is a toddlers who needs a new diaper. This bonmot is especially true if change is fundamental, if something substantial is changing, if a paradigm shifts. Now and then, things, technologies, perspectives change dramatically. If you happen to work in an industry experiencing such a change, consider yourself fortunate if you can accept or even welcome it. Many, if not most people try
