Balancing up the perfect state to become even more perfect

The summer in Sweden has been just beautiful these last weeks. We have had hot days and warm nights, perfect to go swimming in the sunset and have barbecueparties on the beach. People are happy, handsome and openminded. Despite the beautiful weather, I have spent quite some time at home, getting things in order and planning for the new season. It gives new energy. There is so much to do, so much to see and so much to enjoy out there.

There has been time for swimming too. No worries.

When the summer is perfect, I need some kind of challenge to balance it up. Some task, some resistance, some mountain to climb. It makes me enjoy the perfectness even more. And it makes perfect even more perfect. Therefore I look for challenges as soon as they don´t show up by themselves. It is the only way to grow.

Taking risks

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Taking risks is essential when you want to reach a goal and the purpose of goals is growth.

Big People

Really big people are, above everything else, courteous, considerate and generous - not just to some people in some circumstances - but to everyone all the time.

Thomas J. Watson
1874-1956, Founder of IBM

Who are you?

Summer is a great time for thinking. This summer, why not steal some time to think about your personal brand? What do you stand for, which are your core values, what are your goals, which are your most important touchpoints in order to communicate your personal brand? How do you think that people around you think about you at the moment? Is there something in your image that you would like to adjust?

Pack your favorite pen and paper, put a hat on, find a calm spot where you will have time for yourself and take a brainstorming-trip with your personal brand! Just thinking about your personal brand will make you more alert in how you act and behave in days to come. It is a fun and inspirational process.

In a short while, I will have finished some working material about personal branding. Through workshops individually or in groups, we will work together with your brand in order to bring you closer to your goals and dreams. If you live in Sweden, please contact me if you are interested in these workshops. If you live elsewhere, workshops can be held through Skype and a working material in English.
