Are you a multiplier or diminisher?

Last year was a proud moment in my five year young career. I got selected for the talents programme of my company. This programme, called “Future Leaders”, prepares high potentials to be leaders. Leaders of people, but also a leader for yourself. Part of the programme was a workshop entitled: “Are you a Multiplier or

Those of you on Flickr might have heard about “Explore”. This is a page where photos with most social activity (favourites and comments) are displayed. These photos are selected using a secret algorithm. Getting on Explore is a race for on-line fame, and recently I’ve achieved a bit fame. For the first time, two of my photos were selected on Flickr

Do men and women take different photos?

Caution: This article is not scientifically substantiated, just my thoughts! One of the bloggers I follow is Kiki, a talented German photographer and food blogger.

Self-reflection – The follow-up

Previously I wrote on self-reflection. To start the year 2015, I want to give you an example of how I am looking to improve, and what my goals are. In this blog I will take a close look at some of my pictures and look for improvements. This is a long read, and actually I have written

Self-reflection. Are you honest to yourself?

With 2014 coming to an end, it is time for some reflection. And of course, when I blog, I want you to be intrigued, help you grow, entertain you, or share some beauty. This blog however, will be for myself. Because in some situations, I get really stuck and don’t know how to grow. Putting words on
