Manon greets the animals

Manon greets the animals

After spending 95% of my time to get our new Co-Learning business launched, I took some time off with my wife and daughter Manon. We all needed to have some time together. So we decided to visit the petting zoo in Ninove, about a 20 minute drive from where we live. The first animal we encountered was a chicken, … Continue reading

Erik vs Romanian mountains 1 – 0

Erik vs Romanian mountains 1 – 0

I spent last weekend in the Romanian mountains in Rasnov. I arrived on Friday evening and we lost a lot of time on the drive towards the pension where we were all staying. On Saturday I facilitated the first Romanian Gamestorming retreat ever for 12 of the most active members of the agileworks community. I’ll … Continue reading

Positive reactions with a deep impact

On Tuesday around noon I received news that my unofficial aunt had had a stroke on Monday evening. She had been rushed to the hospital and they found a big clot deep inside of the brain stem. This news hit hard. It felt like someone just hit me in the stomach with a two-by-four. I … Continue reading

The renovation kanban

Because we only do work around the house in the weekends and only when we’re home *duh* I decided to create a separate kanban just for the construction, renovation and DIY tasks at hand. I choose one color pen specifically for all … Continue reading

My first real bike ride in Affligem

My first real bike ride in Affligem

It’s been 5 years since I lived in Antwerp, my roots. I’ve lived on the outskirts of the big city all my life. I was used to pavement, concrete, houses and everything. And I always tried to escape the hubbub by going to the park when the sun was out. I used to take my bike everywhere, ride … Continue reading

Loosing a loved one

I’ve always had a hard time accepting death, the only 100% truth and certainty in life. I think the thing that I find most difficult to accept is that I won’t be able to talk to that person again. Not that I can think of anything specific at the time, but it’s just the thought … Continue reading

Timemanagement gone wrong

I don’t have time for that Isn’t that one of the most used phrases of the last 5 years? And it’s still growing in popularity. People struggle all week to find a sustainable work – personal improvement – family – social activities – hobbies balance. I have been struggling with it for years now. Back … Continue reading
