Who is your biggest source of inspiration?
It’s not who it’s what 🙂 People who come up with solutions that sound obvious and genius at the same time. People who have an incredible unique ability and make beautiful things out of it (craftmen, designers, coders…)
How do you keep learning on a daily basis?
Always questioning choices in the most simple way.
Always reflecting on failures in the most honest way.
What are your learning routines?
I write to structure.
I walk to process.
I talk to reflect.
What is your favorite books and why 📚?
What is your favorite podcast and why 🎧?
I don’t listen to podcasts, it’s not how I can process information.
If you were stuck alone on an island and only be allowed to bring one item, what would it be?
A mega swiss knife to craft things 🙂
