Help at least one person a day.

Thoughts

This has been a very interesting day for me. I had insights on myself, who i am, what drives me, what makes my life worthy. My advice is one I practice every day. Try to  help at least one person a day. It’ll come back when you need it most. Share and talk to a lot of people. Sharing is caring.

Thank you, Tom, Kenneth, Eric, Sheila, Heidi, Luka, Annick.

WeddiMeddi-ring; your health file(d) on your corpse.

WeddiMeddi Ring

Wearable stuff is what it’s all about right? The WeddiMeddi is a ring with your medical data filed on. It can be read hospitals, medics, nurses, etc. Whenever something goes wrong, the healthcare personel sector does not always have the right information about patients. In case of life and death situations, it’s not wrong to have a device in which the most pertinent information can be read out instantly.

The choice for a ring? Just like a wedding ring, it’s the only thing one will always wear. For better and for worse. 🙂

Buckle up: the health seat belt. #oipd

Buckle up health seat belt

Probably the thing that touches your chest most. Seem logic to me that the Scanadu Scout by Walter De Brouwer and Misha Chellam (or even Teddy the Guardian :)) types of this world start to close deals with car manufacturers to monitor our health, collect the data and anticipates in all possible ways to improve our daily health and thus lives. Connected cars, connected healthcare,… who thought these two would enforece eachother? A health checkup has never been easier.

FriendsHouseSwap App. #oipd

How well do you know someone? How well do you know your friends? Do you even want to know them even more? Install this app, find a common period and swap houses for a while. It should be a creativity booster and eye-opener as location and surroundings pretty much define your mood. Included is at least one meeting with non-mutual friends.

I don’t know whether a checklist at the end of the period with tips and tricks to improve quality of life and a quiz to see if you got to know your friends even more is needed. It’s all in the experience, i presume.

A new way of education, work, life and retirement. #oipd

I was just pondering and wondering about life in general and how you get where one wants to get.

Education work life retirement balance
I just came across this sheep and it made me smile. so mèèèèèèèèèèèh!

Wouldn’t it be a nice idea that everyone got a general education where personal interests and talents get developed for 15 years after which, people are obliged to continue to study, learn something practical (plumbing, painting, …) or try out entrepreneurship for 5 more years. In these 5 years they can experiment between all these possibilities and thus discover what they really like to do. At 20 years, they start their first professional life that lasts till they’re 40. Between 40 and 45, they get their pension sabbatical period. After that sabbatical, their second professional life starts. You are only presented with a real retirement (pension) proposition at 70. You can however choose to continue to work for 5 more years or go straight into retirement.

The idea is just that when living fast and furiously, you need to have a perspective in which you can really enjoy life fully. For me, this could and would probably work.

From student to professional life: my theory of grabbing opportunities.

In fact, it’s a practical approach. Let me try to explain this simply; I’ve always been some kind of creative entrepreneur. Without much hesitation, but a lot of youngful enthusiasm I threw myself in trying to do all kinds and sometimes silly stuff. It all started with radio…

Appreciation and things to think about.

It has been one of those days. You certainly have them too. You came back from holidays. You’re happy that the world kept turning and all of a sudden, small things go wrong, they don’t look like small things any more and all of a sudden, you think: What? How did that happen? When? Why? What the … should I do? And why the … do I need to fix this?!

I tweeted the simple question without any context: “What should I do?” and three people returned great answers: Continue reading “Appreciation and things to think about.”
