I just noticed that I haven’t updated my Now page since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis.
Of course, the idea of a ‘Now’ page is that it actually isn’t about right now, but more about describing my preoccupation and activities in the current ‘period’.
Anyway, you can see what I’m up to on the updates Now page.
Tweet: A message written by someone with nothing to say to be read by someone with nothing to do.
Now that is a deception, especially since there is no recent iMac available for purchase right now.
Having a clear purpose is the key for a happy life.
Even when researchers compared lonely people with purpose to social butterflies without it, purpose came out on top. In other words, it’s possible when we’re doing things to better our society, the body assumes there’s a society there to better. We’re technically alone, but it doesn’t feel that way.

My stomach tells me that eating the whole bag of M&Ms was not a good idea.
Usually when organizations talk about a VUCA environment, they are simply covering up bad planning, collaboration and organizational practices.
If you apply the growth mindset to organizations, you should stop talking about VUCA.
I am too busy now, but when I have the opportunity (probably this summer) I would like to migrate this blog from WordPress to micro.blog.
I am worried about my fellow Dutch citizens. The general idea in the Netherlands is that they have the coronavirus under control, but they have not.
The death numbers are following Italy’s numbers and today arrived at the point in which Italy went on lock down (which was already rather late).
Furthermore, the Netherlands are a small country. This amount of deaths has placed them at the 5th position on the ranking of deaths per 100.000 habitants (after San Marino, Italy, Spain and Andorra).
Why doesn’t the Dutch government want to take action?
Surely I’m old school, but I still think that Twitter threads are a horrible and user-unfriendly hack.
Why don’t you just publish your thoughts on a place that supports long-form copy and link to it on Twitter?
Will Zoom’s free tier limits finally achieve that business meetings will be limited to 40 minutes?
Many professionals found out last week that work is no longer a place, it it a mode.
I have updated my Now page
I find it surprising that many knowledge workers create task management systems, but never think about knowledge management systems.
That moment when you’re recording a video and the school in front of your house decides to let all children play on the yard while blaring “Baby shark” through the sound system…
When I grow up I wanna be an influencer.
Inspiring other people to take action is the only way to create legacy.
Today I went on a deeeep dive into the rabbit hole of Zettelkasten and the Roam app.
Why did WordPress decide that it’s a good idea to suddenly activate the block editor in their apps? This should be opt-in!
If users don’t use your new feature, it may simply not be compelling enough.

I don’t have a favorite season, I love them all. But what I love most of al is the change of season.
On a side note, for me seasons do not start on their ‘official’ dates, but rather when nature starts behaving stereotypical for the next season. So spring started yesterday, the first day I walked out in the fields in my T-shirt and observed the first blossoming tree.
If you have time to Tweet (or to Gram), you have time to blog.
