I was so inspired by the feedback on my simple hints on a few things to do to bring the happiness of vacation to work. So, here’s some more: I’ll try and limit myself to bring out only ONE area each from the LUCK Concept:

L – for Lean Leadership:
Try and use the “No Blame” philosophy. What ever happens – I prefer action to ignorance. This is sometimes misinterpreted as “supporting sabotage” – but nothing is more distant. By accepting misstakes we vaccinate our people with trust: trust to act. Trust to think. And the team to correct if needed. But never hiding misstakes in fear of “getting caught”. By finding faults – we can improve even more.

U – Unifying Communications:
Sharing what’s happening. Actions in organizations sometimes fall into “actions in islands”. We need to know that more are doing the same, and know of their experiences.  – channels being the intranet, microblogs that travels, pictures, videos (preferably streaming, to be shared)

C – Coaching Leadership:
Learning to SEE (in Lean) what actions and behaviours that create our results. Excel in releasing suitable feedback to support your staff – as well as excel in receiving it.

K – Cognitive reactions in this internetified times:
How to avoid fast response defensive, flight and attack reactions. Primarily as they block the responsible dialog and results.

This is a really convenient way to be on top of your info when visiting conferences:

1 Install Evernote on all of your devices: iPhone, iPad, Mac.

2. Make sure they all synchronize – try a simple message, click “synchronize” and check your devices.

3. You’re all set! Now try my workflow:

A. Open Evernote, click “Take a picture” and do it, maybe the presenter with a slide being shown

B. Continue your work on your Mac, maybe a summary of the conference.

C. I have my iPad, following the hash mark of the conference, for any comment by attendees – or the ones following the livestream from elsewhere

D. Soon, the picture is available on both your iPad and your Mac

E. On your iPad you may now share the picture to the flow by simply dragging and dropping the picture – from Evernote to your Twitter client. Upload and done

F. On your Mac, include the picture in your notes by dragging and dropping the picture from Evernote to your text editor

(G. When writing books, I prefer to drag the files into “Research” of the Scrivener Writing tool, found here.

I strongly recommend the Evernote Podcast!

2010 in review

Please bare with me – a mix of posts in Swedish and English. WordPress gives you a pretty good picture of the year that passed. The first year I really put some work into blogging. I have learned the no. of comments is far less than the reads. I’m fine with that – though I just LOVE comments. So, here’s the year 2010 in retrospect:

*** from WordPress.com ***

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

En MYCKET vanlig fråga. Jag får den nästan dagligen – “så  – du bloggar – vad vinner du på det?” Christian Rudolf har sammanfattat det mycket bra här

Jag kommer att tänka på tiden när jag var bilchef på QuarneValen på KTH. Jag behövde få minst 45 stora trailers att böra ekipagen. Och hade inget att erbjuda i form av ekonomisk ersättning… Betänk att några av dem körde över halva landet för att vara med några timmar. Sedan åkte de hem igen. Deras skäl? Ja, förutom att det var sanslöst roligt var – EXPONERING! Nästan alla  “Man tror att folk minns vilka bilar vi har – men det gör de inte. Spelar ingen roll hur många broschyrer vi skickar ut. Att SE är däremot något annat.” Realtid vinner. Att uppdateras. Top of mind. Kalla det vad du vill. För mig översätter det i “blogg” och “tweets” och “bilder på Flickr”.

Hur ser DU på detta?

As an entrepreneur and consultant running my own company I constantly have to consider TIME as one of my crucial factors. Now, that goes for most of us, but as a sole consultant you are the CEO, CFO, CPO and  a lot of other roles. All need attention. That’s one part of the game.

The other is described excellently by Daniel H. Pink in the brilliant book “Free Agent Nation”.

The reason we see more and more free agents is not only the fact large industries are being digitalized – but the fact that most tools of productivity now thanks to digitilazation and internet can be housed in your laptop brings you power over the tools of productivity. What Pink calls “Digital Marxism”

I need to improve on a daily basis – creating the best work flow, from my handy iPhone when waiting for a train over the iPad when I have more writing space and work with pictures, to the Mac Book Pro where all is finalized. Then again – tagging et cetera can be done “upstream” after doing the big work on the MBP. Handy!

What tools are most essential to you? To me – except for what’s already in the Mac Book Pro I use the following daily: (apps, webapps and SW in a good mix)

Evernote – for taking notes – especially mileage for my acounting but also for book writing
Dropbox – for sharing files with myself and others
Delicious – for saving and sharing links
Google Docs – for co-creating text and more
Scrivener – the best author tool?

now, what do you use?

I haven’t been really active on the stock exchange the latest couple of years – I guess the big crash at the turn of the milennium still has som background radiation to it…
So, I’m starting to follow some statistics, curves and evaluate what “experts” say. Then, when checking my blog and flickr stats I just got the crazy reaction – what if these curves were not views per day – but my stock value? Would I invest in myself? Well, yesterday morning things looked dull – at least when comparing to the day before… (below)

However – if we stretch the timeline and look at my stock value over the latest coupe of weeks, things look a bit better. I even com to think about the “point-and-figure” method. Maybe now, I would consider it. Returning to the real world, what it does to me? It’s encouraging. How this all happened? Let me return to this subject later. Just to brief… it’s about link love, sharing, helping.

For real encouragement – let’s check the month view. I will invest. Or is it pure luck? Future will tell.

What conclusions does your stats impose?
