Hoss talked about making mistakes, how and why to pick your battles, peter principle (“in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.”), to-do lists vs. projects, learn the tools, learn to re-factor, and to make beautiful defaults.

OFFF day #1

We woke up at 8am, a little tired after the beers last night. I told you there was a bar downstairs….and Wednesdays is karaoke nights at the club. So we staid up a little longer than we thought we would. Any ways. Woke up at 8am, had breakfast (baguette with nutella) and then we walked over to the La Grande Halle de la Villette. It only took us 15 minutes to walk, perfect. We had to wait in line for about 1h to get our wrist bands, but we got in right when the opening act with Steven Heller started.

Five ways to…

The seminars that I went to today were great. I really really liked the first one when Glenn talked about conflicts. The whole presentation was great, and I did recognize some of the content from the UGL course. I also liked the third presentation where Tomas talked about how we can get our customers to brag about us. He is also a great speaker and I hope Hyper Island could invite him to have a lecture for us.

When walking out of the Marinmuseum I found some cards with five tips on them that I would like to share. o here are five ways to get a spin on your business:

- Ask yourself where do I see myself in three years?
- Identify your strengths
- Keep yourself updated inside your field
- Make sure you are using your full capability
- Identify your network
