Imagine the Fish [Problem finders and Thinkers]

Eddie is an educator that’s educate organizations on how to get along in the “New World”. He doesn’t tell people what to do. He teaches them to figure out what to do. The old saying “Give a man fish” doesn’t apply anymore. Here is Eddies modified variant.

Teach a man how to learn how to fish and he may also learn how to hunt, farm, produce works of art or cook.
Teach a man how to teach others to fish and you feed the village and then the world. And for you, again for 2013 and onwards I now say – First, IMAGINE A FISH. — Eddie Obeng

In the Old World your boss was someone who had done your job along time ago and know how to do it. But now everything has changed. Now your boss must help you facilitate you doing stuff that he has just a vague idea of how to do.

Daniel Pink I have to talk to before in Life’s a pitch [How you can “Sell” and Persuade better].

Psilocybin [One of Hive-Switch Tiggers]

Also check  out Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris talking about the effects of Psilocybin & MDMA and how they could be used to help with depression and addiction, his controversial colleague Professor David Nutt who claimed Cannabis & Ecstasy were safer & less addictive than Alcohol & Tobacco.

Psilocybin is one of the triggers that switches on the Hive-Switch in your brain that Jonathan Haidt talks about.

Other great Podcasts[What is your inspiration podcasts?]

Other great podcasts that inspire me is of course The RSA that I have talked about before on my Inspiration Lists. What make The RSA so great is the fact that after a person have given their presentation there is a short conversation follow by live question from the audience and Twitter. So that it becomes a dialog instead.

Other interesting podcasts is TED Radio Hour and HBR Podcast.

Gaming and Swedish

For eSports I currently listen to LowElo for League Of Legends.

I also listen regularly to 3 Boardgame podcasts. The Dice Tower, The D6 Generation and Ludology.

[SWE] In Swedish I listen to Nördsnack, Gott prat, Maktministeriet och Klotet.

Listen to more enriching PodCasts. What have I missed?

Keyflower and Octocore in Halmstad [I Love my Friends]

Tonight I have visited some of my closest friends in my hometown Halmstad in Sweden. We had a Great time eating, talking  and playing the new boardgame Keyflower. It is one of the best designed Logistics puzzle game I have ever played. Björn Frölich struck in a victory with and unprecedented bonus of 50 points on a single tile.

HardStyle for Life

I also took a short visit to the Octocore Hardstyle dancing event danced like Crazy to some good Headhunterz beats. Check out his great Hardstyle podcast on iTunes and Soundcloud: Hard With Style.

High intensity dancing turns on the Hive-Switch in the brain under the right circumstances.

Let’s swarm the Earth #Blogg100

#053 [LIII]
Welcome to the Swarm [Where we do things for our Brood-mother]

We humans are 90% chimp and 10% bee. We have what Jonathan Haidt call the Hive-switch in our mind. So today in honor the long awaited release of Heart of the Swarm. Blizzard’s new expansion to Starcraft. We must swarm the Earth. And by that I mean connecting our hive-minds together.

Life defining moments #Blogg100

Music moments that changed my life & Social Movie Watching 

See the end on why I write this. Here I have picked 3 moments where music changed my life. There are many more and maybe I will come back to them later.

Boney M – Nightflight to Venus

I was 6 years old when the first one hit me. My father and his brother was helping him buy a new stereo. They had borrowed 2 tape recorders along with a brand new Philips Hi-Fi Stereo. We where mixing and recording the new album of Boney M, “Nightflight to Venus”. The opening track “Nightflight to Venus” became my favorite with the cool opening drum beat and the concept to flying to the Planet Venus. This song became my favorite song when growing up and it sparked my interest in Music and Sci-Fi.

Darude – Sandstorm

The year was 2000 and the Uplifting Trance genre was at it’s height. Me and my best friend Ulrika was at a visit in my hometown Halmstad during Easter. We went out to dance at Daltons, the best techno club in town. During the last hour there the DJ played a 1 hour long mix of Darude’s Sandstorm. We danced like there was no tomorrow. The Hive-Switch was on to say the least and we where ecstatic. Shirts off and dripping in sweat. From that day on when the music is right and I’m in a mood, I always dance giving my all. All fatigue goes away and I go into Trance.

Mindless Self Indulgence – Never Wanted To Dance

It was last fall in 2012 when I had just hit level 40. I was asked to come up on stage with the rock band Mindless Self Indulgence [MSI] during their live concert here in Sweden. MSI has long been a favorite punk-rock band of mine. Their live concert has a legendary status to be something extra. And when they finally came to Sweden last year and I got a chance to see them this happens. Check out the Video in my other Blog. As you can see from the video I Rock with the best of them 🙂

Jimmy’s words to me:

“Let that be a lesson to you!
That’s how you get famous.
You just take your fucking opportunities.
Just what anybody says you say:
Fuck it! I’m going to do it anyway” — Jimmy Urine

It was a very empowering feeling.
I now feel like I can take on the world and make a dent in the Universe.

Doc Lounge – Watch movies together in a social style

The reason I write this is because tonight I was at a new type of experience. Doc Lounge in Varberg. We meet up to  mingle in soft lounge like local. There is a bar and later they started showing the documentary style movie The Secret Disco Revolution. The saddest part was that there was no Boney M or ABBA in the movie. They where 2 groups that I grew up with and defined disco me. But other Disco still has a warm place in my heart. After the movie was done we cleared the area before the screen and we stared to dance to Disco music. Something I do with great love and energy. This is a totally new way to watch documentary movies together.

The whole concept with social movie watching is awesome.
