Ik zal een geheimpje verklappen. Iets waar ik zelf achter ben gekomen. Gewoonlijk bouw ik een mooi intro op. Maar laat ik nu eens met de deur in huis vallen. Wel zo gepast. Binnen zonder kloppen: ik ben een extremist.Continue reading “De essentie van alles”
Do you know what’s really funny? Or actually it is not. That if someone asks you what you do, they expect an unambiguous answer. That is common. If you answer that you are for example a salesperson or manager, they understand. That’s easy. That’s clear. But if you answer that you are a writer, a baker and a DJ, then most of them are confused. That’s learned confusion learned.
Then you can expect a reaction like: ‘oh … you are .. eh … creative?’. Isn’t it crazy, that we need a name for it? We think it’s normal. Otherwise it is weird. And confusing. Of course that’s not normal. In short, how do you disentangle confusion? Continue reading “Confusion learned”
It’s already a year ago since the last day of the shop. I can still remember like it was yesterday. Time flies so incredibly fast. And I’ve posted so little. I know. Still I had plenty of plans.

‘I’ve never had so many reactions en mails as last week. I do understand. The shop closed permanently is not something you see every day. I received so many emails with questions that unfortunately I can’t answer them all. So let me answer as many questions as I can in this blog.
Since i closed the shop in September 2017 i’ve been occupied with the question: What now? Even if you’re trying very hard to take it slow, there is always the pressure that you have to make a choice eventually. And as time passed by this pressure only grew. But what do you do if you don’t have a clue of what you want to do. Or what you can do. How to get to know yourself (again). Continue reading “Get to know yourself again”
Did you also have a dream of what you wanted to be when you grow up? Like ‘Later when I grow up…’. I did not. Although I am a dreamer. Or … is that just having a rich fantasy ..? But I did not exactly have a dream that I wanted to live up to. I just liked many things. Too many maybe. Still actually. Continue reading “Later when I grow up…”
