Achieve Your Goals – Obstacles on Your Way

The Yoda Achieve Your Goals Column – Part I:  Secret Yedi Mind Tricks to Overcome Your Obstacles

In our new column “Achieve Your Goals” Master Yoda will teach you several obstacles on your way to fulfill your dreams. Well there is a lot of literature which tells you how to be more successful but we will focus in this column on the worst enemy on your way – YOURSELF.

Yoda-Achieve-Your-Goals

Yoda – Helps You to Achieve Your Goals

 

There is a part of your personality which knows your weaknesses and insecurities and it tries to manipulate you on your way. The good thing is that we will defeat this part together. But as a good team we both have to work on it, that means you have to be a part in our journey.

There are 5 Tools your personality uses to prevent you from achieving your goals.

  • Cynicism
  • Negativism
  • Defeatism
  • Escapism
  • Delayism

Cynicism: Nothing is perfect. A good excuse for almost everything, don’t you think? Who hasn’t caught oneself saying, “This is way to complicated for me…” ? The solution to this trick is pretty easy. Think about the result, maybe it won’t change your whole life but does it improve it partly? If the answer is yes give it a shot.

Negativism: Your mind tries to show you all the bad things which are correlated to your new action. So e.g. why should you quit smoking when everybody around you will still poison your air? The dangerous thing is that your subconscious mind believes the stories you tell it. Unfortunately your subconsciousness starts to change your behaviour and attitude. The good thing is there are at least as many good things in our world as bad things. You can decide on which parts you want to focus.

Defeatism: The voice in your head will try to convince you that the fault lies inside your personality. This will create a feeling of insecurity and low self esteem. Maybe you hear yourself saying, “I’m not able to do this because I’m not trained enough”. Now it is important that you convince yourself, that nothing can stop you on your way. Increase your efforts, believe in yourself and you will be rewarded.

Escapism: Back in my studies I remember the times where my flat has always been the cleanest. Guess what, this times always have been very close to my exams. New challenges cause feelings of discomfort. Instead of focusing on the really important things in our lives, we tend to give unimportant things higher priorities. Ask yourself, “Is this really important or is it just an excuse to do s.th. else.?” After a while you will see how pleasant it is to stay on the path where you felt discomfort initially.

Delayism:  There just seems to be not the right moment, “I would have done this but XY was missing”. Evaluate if the reason is legitimate, be aware if you are working against or for you. Most reasons are just made up by you to have an excuse for not doing s.th.

Now you know the weapons of your mind, it will be much more easy to spot when your personality tries to trick you the next time. Don’t see this part of your personality as your enemy. Instead be aware of this mechanisms and use them for you. In other words use the force!

In the next part of the column we will take a closer look at a powerful Jedi tool to guide your subconsciousness.

A good reason to take a break and follow your dreams.

This TED  Talk shows why it’s important to get once in a while distance to your work. Start doing s.th. you really want to do and you will feel new energy and creativity.


http://www.ted.com/talks/stefan_sagmeister_the_power_of_time_off.html

What would be your dream if you take a year off?

 Pssst: Soon you will be able to visualize it on Fream. Maybe you will get lucky and we feature your dream exclusively ;-)

Fream auf dem Münchner Stiftungsfrühling

Barbara & Andi auf dem Muenchener Stiftungsfruehling

Barbara & Andi auf dem Muenchener Stiftungsfruehling


Wir waren am Mittwoch dem 20. März 2013 auf dem Münchener Stiftungsfrühling. Dieser Event, gehostet von der Social Entrepreneurship Akademie, der BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt und dem HUB Munich, bot die Möglichkeit zusammen mit fünf innovativen Social Entrepreneur Teams interaktiv zusammenzuarbeiten.

Wir waren ein Team davon und haben uns in der Creative Hall des Strascheg Centers in München mit einem Stand präsentiert. Bei unserem Stand haben wir zunächst unsere Idee gepitcht und dann Freiraum gelassen, für alle unseren Prototypen zu testen und den Interessenten Fragen zu stellen, aber auch Fragen zu beantworten.

Unsere Learnings vom MünchenerStriftungsFrühling:

  • Keep it simple (also die Plattform)
  • Pfeile wären toll, um Beziehungen zwischen den Elementen herzustellen
  • Es sind immer wieder Fragen aufgetaucht wie wir den Content moderieren und wie wir den Datenschutz handhaben –> Datenschutz muss z.B. irgendwo gut sichtbar erwähnt werden (viell ein Label auf der Startseite)
  • Das wichtigste ist die Vernetzung (eine Idee war Charmapunkte zu verteilen, für Leute, die helfen)
  • Der User braucht Anleitung (sprich Leitfragen, die ihm am Anfang helfen)
  • Eine gute Idee war es, dass wir für das Ganze erst mal lokal eine kritische Masse bilden und dann expandieren
  • Wir sollen Leaduser mit authetischen, bewegenden Geschichten finden
  • Man könnte so eine Art Übersicht für Träume erstellen in denen spezielle, sehr gute Träume verlinkt sind

Block seminar business plan and marketing – Knorpelkirsche, Marketingplan, BioBioBio

So three of us went to this seminar about business plan, business model and marketing from the 1st until the 3rd of march. The seminar was organised by the SDW (Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft) and took place in a very abandoned area around Lüneburg. So we were one weekend totally countryside, without any internet and rarely mobile reception. And the best: 100% bio food and vegetarian aswell. Proudly present by Zur Knorpelkirsche. A very nice place, far away from a big city, with a lovely concept of living. I do recommend!

And in this ambience we were hard working on our business model and set up a first marketing plan for this year. Those three days of hard working and interacting, exchanging and getting feedback from all the other teams gave us a lot of insights for our first prototype of fream.

Some impression for you:

Freamteam in Leuven, Belgium – Beer, Abbeys and a new plattform

From the 5th until the 12th of January the Freamteam met in Leuven, Belgium for working on our dream fream. So what have we been up to in that whole week?

Well, we drunk a lot of belgian beer. and we stayed in that pretty cool old abbey. and besides that: we are a very big step closer to free our plattform in a beta release to you.

We have a styleguide. Means we are now completly sure about logo, fonts, colours, shapes and much much more. And all this information is currently, like right in this moment, linked to the code for our plattform.

fream brandbook 2013

We have a new logo. Which is easier to use with different backgrounds. Look look look, there it is:

fream - new logo 2013

We will get some freamies. What the hell are freamies and how do they look like? Aaaaaah, we don’t know, we’re just hoping we’re not getting a bunch of monsters.

fream will get a bunch of freamies

The freamteam in Bremen – designing, coding & Glühwein

Fream in Bremen -  Die Weser

Fream in Bremen – Die Weser

From the 28th November till the 2nd of December the freamteam met in Bremen. What have we been up to in that time? Well, we discovered that Bremen is the city of flavours. It depends on daytime, exact place where you are at a time and wind direction. But if you have the chance, then in one moment Bremen is full of the flavour of toasted bread, hops, pop-corn or black chocolate. Continue Reading →

Demo-Video für das fream-Interface

Wir haben da mal was hochgeladen:

Das ist die Idee davon, wie ein fream-Prototyp aussehen und funktionieren könnte. Wie das immer so ist, wird es am Ende vielleicht doch ganz anders. Aber so könnt ihr euch auch mal ein Bild davon machen, wovon hier reden. We’re talkin ’bout free your dreams!
