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 seems a good anal­o­gy

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 bud­dhist story of 500 peo­ple

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 of

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, I do it. If I want to start a new com­pa­ny, I do it. If I want to avoid insol­ven­cy,

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 year. Most­ly,

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 re three basic approach­es to respond

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 invest­ed months

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 sig­nif­i­cant

The Big Data 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 to pre­vent changes, either

Don“t Quote Buddha, Be Buddha!

Don“t panic — this head­line is much less eso­teric as you might think. It came to my mind today, when I saw many peo­ple mourn­ing the death of musi­cian David Bowie, quot­ing him through­out the day. For this post, David Bowie“s death and the uni­ver­sal reac­tions to it are very well suit­ed to explain my view on quot­ing great men and women: why not rather act­ing like them as quot­ing them?
