It’s my Birthday!
I became 27 years old, another year to take more risks and also to learn more. 😀 Olé!
During the Christmas event there was a speaker trying to fool us with his speech. He did a few mind games to confuse everyone. I looked to his costume and thought this isn’t tailormade, so he should be a comedian…
But then he did a game, he asked the audience to think about a shape that comes first in mind. First, I was thinking about a square and then I chose a triangle.
Some descriptions of the shapes:
Triangle: headliner, not showing emotion, ambitious, perfectionist.
Square: structured person, focused on details , corporate.
Circle: people who are focused on relationships, social, family oriented.
A month ago someone told me to get my inner child back, because I lost it. This was true, when I’m focused on working, I become a serious person and I keep this attitude. Even when I’m with my friends or going out.
So, I decided to bring my inner child back.
This recipe is from my mother, and she was born in Indonesia. She learned me the to cook and also my taste for spicy food increased. As hot sauce I use ajumba peppers or madame Jeanette.
I advice to use rice, that you already have cooked the day before. This is better for the flavor and texture. We always cook rice in a batch and freeze it for a later moment.
My friend and I went to the Masters of LXRY yesterday, we’ve visited this event 4 years ago for the first time, so we brought back some memories…
When I was a kid, I already helped my parents with their firm. My parents sold clothes on the market for 10 years. I wore the clothes, showing them on the market. I also helped choosing the clothes for selling at the vendor.
Nowadays, I’m selling products on a virtual marketplace, because you have a lot of contact with people and I love to negotiate! Sometimes people are getting mad if I’m asking a high bid, but they can make a counter offer. Actually, I’m already expecting this because when you are doing business there is always room for negotiating.
Most of the times, they just give it up but, they are scared to make a counter offer or get mad. Then the game is over…
Always make a counter offer when you negotiate!
Today we celebrated Christmas at work.
We had a dinner, a presentation, a tour at the departments, and we received our ‘kerstpakket‘, it is Dutch for Christmas package. Our kerstpakket was filled with food and drinks for celebrating Christmas at home.
Below, I made a short movie of the celebration at work. The song is ‘Feliz Navidad’, because this song really brings the Christmas spirit on a Spanish way.
Right after waking up, I do a morning glance, I think about what matters the most in your life and recall pleasant memories. Then I do a small yoga workout on the floor and continue with the rest of my morning routine. My breakfast is natural plain yogurt with a small cup of black coffee. During breakfast I’m getting energized listening to music and singing.
After breakfast, I drive to my work with music that brings me inner peace. Yes, it is Julio Iglesias.
At work, I start by making a to-do list with the tasks of the day and writing in my bullit journal. When my colleagues arrived at work I’ve a chat with them. I think it’s important to always greet every colleague and say ‘good morning’.
During work I drink green tea or ginger tea and eat some fruit as snack.
If the weather allows it, we go outside for a walk. Coming back, we have lunch together at the canteen. I’m not a fan of having lunch in front of your computer screen.
When you are working and busy, try to avoid distractions like your mobile, social media, etc. It costs more time to restart your activity/task when you pause it when changing your focus towards a message or mail. I really avoid distractions.
Another thing I do is when my workday is over, clean up your workspace, and say goodbye to your colleagues, if they are still there. 😉
And if you’re leaving the office, really leave…
