Extremely tired and extremely happy

Posted by jjerlich on 9. July 2017

I am so thankful for having had the honor to be the amplifyer for such an important movement: the SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK brought to you by Puricious!! ❤️❤️❤️

Sabine Van T Hart

After 2 highly intense weeks

Sabine Van T Hart is so driven to get the knowledge people need to decide for a healthy sugarless lifestyle. I really enjoy supporting this mission, I actually feel that it is my duty to do so.

It is not the chocolate, the cockies and the icecream, we know that this is sugar  – it is the hidden sugars, the fact that almost everything we buy has sugar inside which we are not aware of. This is the trap we all fall into. We do not want YOU to fall into this TRAP.

Thank you so much for listening and reading about the facts about sugar. It was so great to see the feedback rolling in, check how many people saw the materials created and followed into the course with a highly professional 360° Analysis what the sum of all sugars we take per day does to our body.

Sabine was working non-stop to answer all the questions and personally receive the wonderful feedback. Yes, I am speaking about several hundreds of emails, phone calls and other social contacts points – Sabine was soooo happy and of course so extremely tired that it took some time to recuperate from this intense time.

Can you see the difference on the fotos?

Since you know now that I myself have ditched sugar with Sabine, I can only recommend to take a helping hand and not try to do this alone.

I am like this … I always think that I need to have the self -discipline to do “this” myself … does this sound familiar to you?

The fact is that our brains are tricking us and if you do not know in advance what shape and form these tricks can take, you are doomed.

A guiding hand to reduce your sugar intake is the best way … I wish you had Sabine on your side to do this together!!

She does not only have the expertise, she has the experience of having guided 378 clients from all around the worldwide (yes, from a distance) on HOW TO REDUCE SUGAR … and seen incredible HEALTH TRANSFORMATIONS happen in as little as 10 days.

She has the heart and soul needed to support you in your journey in a soft and at the same time determined way as no one else has.
Thank you Sabine for being who you are.

[PREMIUM] 10-Day Sugar Rehab program

[EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE COACHING] 10-Day Sugar Rehab program

What is the difference between them?

Depending on how much support you need for the changes and how you feel comfortable in your learning process, the program levels reflect the personal contact hours you have with the resources and of course, Sabine and Marco from Puricious.

There will be a Webinar for answering questions about exactly this point and we will make sure to post the invitation to it here.

Here is the WEBINAR LINK

See you there

FUN.Basel Vol VII – celebrating …

Posted by jjerlich on 25. June 2017

 … the 1st Anniversary with our community

The heat was on. For the occasion and the temperature. Despite the hot weather we were about 50 people, previous speakers, regulars and new comers, gathered at Launchlabs. We had the honor of having the CEO and owner of Launchlabs among us this time and could personally say how grateful we are for being hosted in such a wonderful location..

Cool that you all came, thank you very much for making it to be with us, especially on that day.

Chapeau to our speakers, thank you for sharing your stories:

Andreas Erbe

Andreas Erbe
Andreas is an innovation consultant and coach specializing in work environments. He enjoys working on agile, space-related projects and so decided four years ago to found launchlabs in Basel to pursue his passion for creating spaces for innovation. His lesson:

Do not trust the four Fs !

He shared with us some of the situations where you are not sure what you were not able to foresee this. The feeling I got was that it is still worth the challenges and pains you have to overcome as an entrepreneur. He calls his “launchlabs – the place where shit happens. Oh, yes, and innovation”.

Launchlabs Basel


Sabine van T HartSabine Van T Hart

Born in the Netherlands, growing up in Australia, finding the love of her life in Italy, now living in Switzerland, She shared her ‘Cookie monster’ story the first time in public. Her friends are still amazed how she made it from her marketing career to start her health coaching business ‘Puricious’.

Do not take your health for granted !

Sabine was our speaker during the SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK, a campaign she and her husband Marco were running to share facts about the effect on sugar in our bodies.

This is an extremely hot topic these days and FUN.Basel was happy to be support it with our community.

Sustainability is important to him and a word he uses often –  he is really passionate about investments that make an impact for our societies. He co-founded and worked at Mission Markets in New York, a pioneering fintech startup focused on capital raising for impact companies and funds.

Be aware that you are jumping without a parachute.

He said he fucked up so many times that it will be difficult to decide which story to share. It is also quite hard to give you a glimpse into the story he shared. What happens in Launchlabs, … is definitely worth joining.

A question from our Q&A sessions, we are interested to share with you:

Do you only learn from mistake you did yourself or can you also learn from mistakes others made? 

Let us know in an email or the comments below.

We are looking forward to see you on September 6, 2017

There is Sugar in everything

Posted by jjerlich on 5. June 2017

We all know that sugar is not good for us. Besides posing a serious health threat, sugar is the #1 obstacle to achieving a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

What most people do not know: there is (hidden) sugar in almost everything we buy. It is very difficult to recognize sugar because of the 45 different names used.

YES, there are 45 different names for sugar.

I am so happy that I am not a sugar junkie anymore. It was really a struggle to change, it almost felt like an addiction of my body.

Thanks to Marco and Sabine from Puricious Health Coaching.  It is not only fun and impactful to work with them. They are on this planet to spread the real facts about sugar so that we regain the choice we think we had.

Paired with the wide spread echo of their Sugar Rehab Programs, repeatedly asked by their clients and friends, they decided to go all out now and created the

SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK

#FreeFromSugar #DitchSugarTogether

Just at the right time: in summer we tend to consume even MORE sugary soft drinks, frappuccinos, fruit juices, and ice creams … you name it.

This is why the SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK from 17 – 24 June 2017 is an 8-day FREE Education Program packed with facts about sugar and its effects on our health from various different angles.

What do you get?

  • Delicious sugar-free recipes
  • Inspirational stories from real people
  • Advice from experts
  • Quizzes, free give-aways
  • … and lots of interviews and information

Join this WEEK OF INSPIRATION to reduce our sugar intake with Puricious’ effective step-by-step methods

We all agree that time is our most crucial resource these days. This is why this week is packaged and delivered right to your doorstep, your email inbox every day.

As soon as you sign up you will get the announcements for you to choose to

  • receive all information prepared especially for you and
  • plan your the time slot for a LIVE event in Zurich or Basel (where you can meet Marco and Sabine in person).

SIGN UP NOW to get all we prepared for you in your email inbox and at your fingertips whenever you are ready to start using it.

Excited regards

Jutta

If I had only one more day to live, I would spend it informing everyone about the impact of (hidden) sugar on their health

Zucker – was viele nicht wissen

Posted by jjerlich on 2. June 2017

Wir wissen alle, dass Zucker schlecht für uns ist. Zucker ist nicht nur ein ernstes Problem für unsere Gesundheit. Er ist Nummer 1 Hindernis, für einen ausgeglicheneren Lebensstil, den wir jeden Tag spüren können.

Was die meisten nicht wissen: (versteckter) Zucker findet sich in fast allem, was wir kaufen. Es ist fast unmöglich geworden, ihn zu erkennen, das 45 verschiedene Bezeichnungen verwendet werden.

JA, es gibt 45 verschiedene Bezeichnungen für Zucker.

Ich bin sehr froh, dass ich kein Zucker-Junkie mehr bin. Ich kann tatsächlich in einer Konditorei sitzen und verspüre keine Lust auf ein Stück Torte oder ähnliches. Ich fühle mich richtig befreit!

Das verdanke ich Marco und Sabine von Puricious Gesundheit-Coaching. Es war nicht nur sehr motivierend und lustig, mit ihnen zu arbeiten. Vor allem hatte es eine nachhaltige Wirkung. Für mich ist Nachhaltigkeit das Zauberwort für jede Veränderung. Es wird oft versprochen, aber selten wirklich geboten. Die meisten Leute wollen einen Quick Fix – den es in hier (und in vielen anderen Bereichen) leider nicht gibt.

Jeder, der schon einmal allein versucht hat, eine Nahrungsumstellung zu schaffen, weiss wie (fast) unmöglich das ist. Marco und Sabine sind berufen, die Wahlfreiheit, die wir denken zu haben, tatsächlich zu geben. Der Schlüssel ist zu wissen, wo man beginnt und welche Hindernisse einem sein eigener Körper in den Weg stellt, warum und wie man ihnen begegnen kann.

“Diese Aufklärung ist Gold wert” sagen ihre Klienten.

Immer wieder wurden sie gebeten, dieses Wissen doch an ein breiteres Publikum weiter zu geben. Nun ist es soweit:

Machen Sie mitschreiben Sie sich ein – die erste sehr praktische, persönlich ansprechende und von Experten unterstütze Informationskampagne in Europa:

SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK

#FreeFromSugar #DitchSugarTogether

Genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt, denn im Sommer ist die Versuchung überall: zuckerhaltige kalte Getränke, Frappucinos, Fruchtsäfte und küstliches kühles Eis warten an jeder Ecke auf uns.

Schreiben Sie sich ein! In der SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK vom 17 – 24 Juni 2017 erhalten Sie für 8 Tage lang KOSTENLOS

  • Rezepte für köstliche zuckerfreie Gerichte
  • Wissensquizze
  • Informationen und Ratschläge von Experten
  • Persönliche Geschichten über deren Weg zu einem Zuckerfreierem Leben
  • … und viele Interview und Artikel zum Nachlesen

SAW overview 13 June 2017

Als TeilnehmerIn an dieser WOCHE DER INSPIRATION erfahren Sie, wie sie sich mit der Effizienten Methode von Puricious schrittweise Zucker reduzieren können.

Zeit ist wohl der wichtigste Faktor in all unserem Leben geworden. Sie haben keine Zeit mehr für Zusätzliches? Genau darum liefert Puricious Ihnen das Wissen über Zucker, Aktionen zum Mitmachen und die Interviews kompakt und einfach zum Nachhören und Nachlesen.

Sie haben die Wahl

  • das Wissen nach Ihrem Zeitplan (auch später noch) abrufbar zu haben
  • aktiv mitzumachen und an einer der Events in Zurich und Basel Marco und Sabine persönlich treffen.

SCHREIBEN SIE SICH JETZT EIN und starten sie auf den Weg in eine zuckerfreiere Zukunft.

Mit großer Vorfreude

Jutta

 

Wenn ich nur noch einen Tag zu leben hätte, ich würde ihn damit verbringen, mein Wissen and soviele Leute wie möglich weiter zu geben

Wishing you inspiring conversations

Posted by jjerlich on 28. May 2017

I remember my first trip to Sweden, excited to meet the Scandinavian community of high class educators: IT educators at schools and universities crossing all knowledge levels and ages learning about cutting edge technology for our (increasingly) smart societies.

goodVibes Stockholm

I very much enjoyed the vibrant climate and inspirational conversations with nice, competent and young students as well as their teachers. I would go again any time.

The coming days Kane Minkus is coming your way,

Har du koll på Kane?

This foto shows Kane the way I know him: open, direct, full of humor and respectful and in this combination a very inspiring and motivating individual.

He helps business owner and want-to-be business owners to

  • become clear about what they are best at,
  • become more visible and credible,
  • build their personal brand
  • … ultimately grow their businesses and themselves.

It is great to work with him, not only inspired me but catapulted me to a new point in life. I am happy that you have the chance to personally meet him next week as well.

You will find more details when you check out the registration page for his FREE event below.

Will I meet you in the Community of Holistic Entrepreneurs and Business Owners?

Here are the dates and times – just click on the pic or your city and sign up for the FREE event.

Clicking on the below schedule will also take you to the registration form.

Kane in Scandinavia

All the best

You can not eat cheesecake :-(

Posted by juttajerlich on 19. May 2017

If you love cheese cake like me, you are in pain right now.

Are you seeing this beautiful and yummy cake and the recipe below?

Raw+vegan+strawberry+cheesecake

I am so happy to be able to tell you, confirm you, sign a certificate to your significant other … that this cake is sugar-free and vegan.

Even better it does not have dairy (which I should not eat) nor additives like in most conventional cheesecakes.

This recipe is for you,
… the only reservation: if you are allergic to nuts!

Sabine from Puricious was so nice to allow us to share it with you. A massive thank you!!!

The car that was not a car

Posted by juttajerlich on 16. May 2017

or … getting into the driver seat!

Jutta Jerlich & Kane MinkusI think we all know this … feeling like you are not in the driver seat of life.

Is someone else driving?

Is some kind of robot controlling the direction (and you do not find the Stop button)?

Are the circumstances or things in your environment controlling the car?

Whatever it is in your life – I recommend you to get out of it and start creating your own reality.

What difference can I make?

Posted by jjerlich on 10. May 2017

Use your voiceDear all,

We always think that what one person decides does not really make a whole lot of difference to others in the world.

Since I can think, I have always been taking a different stand motivating others to use their voice and let the world know and felt very frustrated that it was not really inspiring people to do so.

Doing this in a not-so-digital world, before our current times, was not that easy, because the person who stands out and up for what he or she believes in was often alone against the crowd. Swimming against the current.

I am so glad that these times are over.

The voices and weights of all the one persons are now coming together. Like this we can change the world.

Yes, we can.

I just received a letter from Ricken Patel. He is the founder of http://www.Avaaz.org – my deepest respect and honor for your work, Ricken.

Avaaz is a 44-million-person global campaign network that works to ensure that the views and values of the world’s people shape global decision-making. (“Avaaz” means “voice” or “song” in many languages.) Avaaz members live in every nation of the world; our team is spread across 18 countries on 6 continents and operates in 17 languages. Learn about some of Avaaz’s biggest campaigns here, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

There are no better words to explain everyone of YOU the weight of YOUR VOICE.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

 

Dear Avaaz movement,

I have a crazy confession to make. I started Avaaz, and I don’t sign many petitions.

I always think, “yeah, but what difference is my one extra signature going to make?” I feel like I have more important things to do, like making sure our petitions are powerfully delivered.

But wow, am I glad the rest of us don’t think this way. Because while it’s true that the 1,137,540th signature doesn’t by itself change the game, the whole million of them absolutely can. And the whole million is just a million individual people hoping, believing and acting. Doing *their* part, however small, to make a better world. Without people who make that individual choice, our movement would not exist.

So much of life is like this. Any one of us could be the one person to skip the line, or not vote, or lie on our taxes, or turn away from a neighbour in need. But we don’t. Why?

Because it’s who we are. Because it’s the right thing to do. Because we were raised to love and serve. Because we know what a dark world it would be if everyone failed to do their part.

I’ve always been awed by the decency of the people in this movement. You teach me again and again. And in reflecting on this question of why we sign, I come back to my own behaviour. And I pledge to sign more. To be part of that simple act of connection to others, in hope, service, and that precious kind of strength that we can only find together.

Click below to see and join a global, multilingual live chat of our movement about why each of us sign (and message, share, call, lobby, donate, march). These times call for all of us to step up to the needs of our communities and our world – let’s inspire each other to service:

Why we sign

I know many of us are moved by seeing the list of names of others who have signed scroll by on the petition page. I am too. Look for my name there.

With gratitude for this stunningly beautiful movement,

Ricken and the team

PS – Of course, our petitions are just the beginning of our campaigns — and Avaaz runs some of the most effective, strategic, don’t take no for an answer, never say die campaigns in the world! I know many of us only see a campaign at its beginning. See our victories page to see what it looks like at the end.

One of a Kind Expert

Posted by jjerlich on 4. May 2017

It was about a year ago that I first met Kane Minkus in a short introduction event in Basel. As a digital expert I always remember where I got to know about the event – I clicked on a Linkedin ad. Really good that Linkedin knew I was in Basel at that time. 🙂

Jutta Jerlich and Kevin Harrington

Long story short:
Since the first time I spoke to Kane a year ago lots of changes happened. First of all personal development led me to take decisions differently. Most of all the incredible network and people I am now connected and collaborate with.

… No, it is not just about taking fotos with famous people – here I am with Kevin Harrington, the guy from the US Television  Show Shark Tank. I did have the opportunity to speak with Kevin in person and enjoyed meeting him.

I want to express my joy that I know Kane and Alessia who you will get to meet if you join them at the next upcoming “Start At The Top” program.

Yes, they are coming again to Switzerland and Yeah !! Germany & Austria as well. Here are the dates and time – just click on the pic or your city and sign up for the FREE event.

It is so much worth your time and it will change your life.

Dates to join Kane Minkus SATT

A little MORE about Kane

Kane & the Industry Rockstar team have been teaching the worlds brightest business owners how to really make a difference and create a legacy in their industry.

With 30 years old he had launched over 24 different companies, taking 5 of them to multi million dollar and multi international success. Learning a few things from a guy like that is an opportunity you should not let pass by.

At the same time he stayed a person you can talk to – it is so much fun to see him on stage and work with him.

Will I meet you in the Industry Rockstar Community of Holistic Entrepreneurs and Business Owners soon?

All the best

Jutta

FUN.Basel Vol VI – Finding …

Posted by jjerlich on 12. April 2017

Easter Edition 11.4.2017 

I really enjoyed this particular #FuckUpNightBasel‬ at Launchlabs. Here are my reasons why

  • the 3 stories were all presented in a really funny way by exceptional speakers
  • we really enjoy this great location = Launchlabs is the space for creative event formats that strive to introduce new ways of thinking. A huge thanks to our hosts.
  • we had a great crowd of newcomers and repeated delinquents. Thank you all for coming!

A huge Thank you goes to our speakers  – they are a crucial factor for setting the spirit of the evening.

Thank you … for sharing your stories:

A note for us all

Understanding Creativity

Posted by jjerlich on 31. March 2017

is a first step.

Understanding your own aptitude for creative thinking is the best first step you can take. Knowing and enjoying your own creativity and the blocks that keep your creativity from flowing is essential to a happy life.

Jutta Jerlich Guest Author Understanding Creativity

That is why I wrote a couple of sections as a guest author of the new book

Understanding Creativity

I have been collaborating with the main two authors Dr. Daniel Collado-Ruiz and Dr. Hesamedin Ostad-Ahmad-Ghorabi for many years now and want to thank them for including my thoughts and expertise.

The topics I burn

  • Communication Culture
  • Conflicts Management
  • Learning from failures

I highly recommend you to read this book, it is not only explaining creativity in a simple way but also gives a lot of practical examples and tipps on why a specific method might work in your case and others not.

Let me know if you do so.
I am always connecting with my readers and curious about feedback.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

FUN.Basel Vol V – Walk the talk

Posted by jjerlich on 27. February 2017

An exquisite group of people joined the 5th #FuckUpNightBasel‬ at Launchlabs. The organizers decided that it is time. Time to walk the talk themselves, understanding and experiencing first hand what it means to be a FuckUp Night speaker. Joined by a third professional, the topic of the evening was clear:

3 Stories of Failure in highest management positions: backgrounds and setting

The discussion with the participants was very intense, following question in the center of attention:

How much does your setting have to do with the failure and what does it do to you as an emotional being?

Thanks to our speakers at @FUN_Basel Vol V

… for sharing their stories:

Jutta JerlichJutta Jerlich
Technology evangelist, marketing strategist and educator
@jjerlich

Is your market ready for your offer?

As a specialist in building digital communication and content strategies for entrepreneurial minds and organizations facing the challenge of an increasing speed of change, her story showed how you can become like a fish in the water during times or rapid and all encompassing disruptive change.

 

Holger SchimankeHolger Schimanke

Where are your limits?

This is the defining question which also came up during the Q&A session with the audience. Holger is sharing his experiences with people in the similar life situations.

Where to start?

Posted by juttajerlich on 14. February 2017

Frozen by choices

I feel like in this picture sometimes, frozen by choices – in a twofold meaning.

What should I focus on?

I just answer this question from a friend without even thinking. While doing so I realized that I am asking myself the same question for so long already and do not have an answer.

I am getting great feedback when I do this. … Actually I do not offer what people ask me. Well, maybe I should. But there is also this … which I really enjoy doing. Hmmm …

What should I focus on?

Here is my answer:

I recommend you to answer yourself the following questions:

What do you like to do best and at the same time, what do you already have prepared to serve those request you get?

Many times we forget the answers to this question because we do not feel that we are actually doing work. We just do it. Other people can answer you this question in a flash. Asking others around you to answer.

If you do not have others to ask, try this trick to ask yourself like this:

  1. What is the easiest for you to deliever?
  2. Is the answer to question 1. in your genius / purpose?
  3. If yes, go for it. If no, take the next one in line and answer the same questions.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot, Naseem, for asking this question in the forum!

Inspirational regards

Medizin aus der Natur – Kongress in Freiburg

Posted by jjerlich on 1. February 2017

Drei Zehntel heilt die Medizin, sieben Zehntel die Ernährung

Dagmara Zasada-Schneevoigt

Vor kurzem durfte ich Dagmara Zasada-Schneevoigt kennen lernen: in Ihrer Praxis der 5 Elemente Ernährung & Traditionelle Chinesische Medizin unterhielten wir uns über Zutaten aus der japanischen Küche, die ich heute noch in meinem Alltag vermisse.

Sie hat mir von dem Kongress der Naturmedizin erzählt, der Samstag 4.2.2017 in Freiburg stattfindet. Hier mein Interview mit Dagmara:

Warum gehst Du zu dem Kongress?

Auf meine Einladung kommt Dr. Kardasz nach Freiburg, er ist ein toller Biologe, der zum Thema Phytotherapien und besonders Phytoremediation ausserordentliches Wissen mitbringt.

Was mich an seinen Therapien und Produkten fasziniert, ist, dass er westliche Kräuter und chinesische Kräuter verbindet. Die Synergien, die damit entstehen sind gigantisch. Das habe ich schon selbst ausprobiert.

Was erwartet die Teilnehmer?

Narendra Modi – The Robin Hood of our times

Posted by jjerlich on 1. January 2017

Crowd Funding the Poor

The Pathways of Robin Hood

I want to start this Year 2017 with sharing a story that I have been following for a couple of weeks.

A news story that did not get the visibility it deserves.
A story that was not told properly.
The best news I ever heard.

On the 8th of November a history changing event happened. No, it is not the result of the US elections I am referring to. It is much more important than that.

It is the announcement of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to demonetize 500 and 1000 rupee notes. The banknotes were declared illegal tender at 11 pm that day representing more than 86% of cash in circulation. New 2000 rupee notes have been introduced instead. This initiative is an attempt to fight corruption and tax evasion.

The context

India is a country where many (rich) people keep (a lot of) money outside the tax system, stacked away in cash. A World Bank estimate puts the size of the black economy at 23.2% of India’s total economy in 2007. India is still largely a cash-driven economy and this money plays a key role in many different areas: the real estate market, fueling terrorist activities, financing elections, … . I am sure that creative minds can think of many other areas where black money is handy to have.

When something like this happens (and it can happen from one day to the other), there is a lot at stake. Thinking of the consequences by taking a snapshot from all 360 degree viewpoints will impress you.

You might have heard or read about this seemingly unpopular move of Modi. You might think that this is not relevant for you, because you have nothing to do with India.

But let me share 3 reasons why this is relevant to all of us.

 

1. The value of money

What does money mean to you?

From one day to the other the money in your hand can just become paper. The value we attribute to it is suddenly gone.

The effect of the Modi’s announcement was that stacks of money were found on the streets of India. Everyone could pick up the money and deposit it in his or her bank account.

Yes. You are reading correctly.

Thinking ahead, the first question coming to one’s mind is:
Does everyone have a bank account in India?

Yes, with the Jan Dhan Yojana Scheme, which Modi started in August 2014, he made sure that every Indian family got enrolled in a bank and opened a zero balance account. He wanted to make certain that every Indian family could deposit money into a bank account.

Just to say that again:

Lots of Money was found in the streets of India that people could pick up and deposit in their bank accounts.

This news touched my heart – Robin Hood at work.

The biggest crowd funding I ever heard of, no platform needed.

I wanted to know more about it and started to read all the news I could get. Surprisingly there was not a lot of noise about it. I asked myself why. I asked family and friends in India and here is what I learned:

The value of the money is not lost. The obsolete notes just need to be deposited into a bank account within the deadline (30 of Dec 2016). No problem for everyone paying taxes. Go to the bank and deposit your money.

 

2. Changing our economic systems

Have you ever personally felt that our economic system favors certain groups of people?

This question is becoming a topic in an increasing number of discussions, fueled by the growing transparency as a consequence of digitalization – spoken in specific terms: the horizontal and vertical integration is breaking down silo mentality.

This excites me and make me feel like a fish in water – seeing the chance to change our systems in a way that our societies can favor sustainable, fair and mutually beneficial solutions.

Luckily I am not the only one who thinks that “Our economic system favors the wealthy and powerful.” and many people ask themselves “Why do powerful leaders not do more good”

Modi managed to implement a very simple yet impressively effective measure which had a huge impact and benefited the majority of people in his country. I salute him.

He is driven to ensure the long-term welfare of the people of India. Having only this goal in mind (rather than his own personal benefit), he laid the foundation for removing injustice in the distribution of wealth.

It is not a political trick and not a change in the economic or financial system. It is “just” the replacement of two banknotes with new ones.

His example is the proof to me that it is possible to find ways within a current system to benefit the majority of people again.

His example is the proof to me that one person can make a huge difference in the world.

 

3. Complexity

Did you think about the consequences of Modi’s initiative in your own terms?

If so, you certainly understood very quickly that the complexity of effects and consequences of this one step are huge. I spent hours and hours reading articles, watching speeches and interviewing people. It is certainly possible that I misinterpreted or misunderstood. This is simply my impression of the effects and consequences this measure has already had and will continue to have in the future.

On the 9th of November those people with black money were facing following options:

  1. Exchange it for the new notes through buying something.
  2. Come clean and use one of the Black Money Window Schemes opened by the Indian Income Tax Department.
  3. Accept that the cash is merely a piece of paper and get rid of it.

I heard that many people chose option 1 and 3. It led to small business owners like the tea-stand fellow on the corner or the fruit farmer coming every morning receiving huge tips. Or stacks of money floating in the river Ganga. There were also other escape routes tried, such as:

  • Sending money to relatives working abroad to exchange the money,
  • Buying railway and airline tickets, cancel them, and ask for a refund.

Modi’s government instantly observed all channels of financial movements in a very smart way allowing them to introduce road blocks very quickly for anyone trying to get around the rules. These observations included statistics about all financial activities to identify > from whom > how much > from where and > to what destination the money started to flow.

Lets take a look at the positive effects for the economy. I would really like to know if they were actually foreseen beforehand: It might impact the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of India negatively in the short term, yet, with positive long term consequences. It will help to bring down inflation. Not to mention about upcoming elections (black money being no more available).

Where was the media?

International media reports focused only on the Indian public standing in queues in front of the banks. They did not report on Modi’s initiative in full. I would have expected more media attention, with a more detailed analyses on effects and consequences of his initiative.

But looking at the facts it seems as if Modi intentionally chose this date (same day as US elections).  Even now, 2 days post deadline, I still do not find many articles about it. I guess, the complexity of this topic probably led news journalists to step back, and not take up the subject.

Following the conversations and voices on social media, many people shared their various opinions, discussed issues, and conducted polls within their networks…, getting involved on Twitter, Quora, Facebook and alike. Even well known people, such as the author Chetan Bhagat took part in it.

Yet, lacking the appropriate attention of international journalism brings the risk that an important topic such as this, is not seen in the right light.

 

Conclusion

We have to get used to the fact that more such complex topics will pop up in the future and that we shall have to form our own opinion or get swept away by social media waves. I believe that it will become increasingly difficult – even impossible – to identify the real facts.

Initiatives, companies and organizations which want to play an active role in our fast changing times need to become visible, open and transparent on a global digital stage. They have to ensure that their topic is seen in the right light.

Everything has a local and global aspect. In the end it is about people and their realities affecting them in their own countries (which is difficult to understand for outsiders). And the realities being relevant to all of us on this globe.

 

My contacts in India say that everyone they know are very happy about this initiative, everything is good, the new notes are in circulation.

2017 started without any problems.

Happy New Year 2017

Loosing yourself …

Posted by jjerlich on 21. December 2016

whatsapp-image-2016-12-20-at-21-11-54Do you know this deep feeling of sadness in your body that is not really on the surface but feels like a heavy dark load you carry around?

This beautiful photo somehow visualizes this feeling for me. It makes me sad when money is the reason why relationships break, talent is wasted and health is sacrificed.

In the last years humanity has seen so many proofs that money and the systems we have created do not contribute to our happiness.

Still we all depend on it and it makes or breaks a person to have it or not.

Then I met Martin Altherr in a discussion about different ways to look at “money”. He asked me:

What is your relationship with money?

I did not have an answer right away. As a creative person, in the business of inspiring others to grow and nurture their ideas, there are not many questions that I have not been asked before. This is one of those questions. The development and change that followed is very interesting and still ongoing.

JOIN me at Martin’s  Webinar next week where he wants discuss with us how we do and should relate to money.

Perfect timing for forming your new years resolutions 2017.

Recoding Habits

Posted by jjerlich on 5. December 2016

Speaker Update and Event Tip for people in Basel

mahima_jutta

Feeling strong: Jutta & Mahima

A quite daunting task – recoding habits you want to get rid of.

I read lots of different articles about changing and forming new habits. The science of how our brain works helps to understand this topic.

One of the rules stated is that you need at least 21 days of doing something to form a new habit that overwrites the old one.

Well, it is a very long time to get over 21 days. If you have ever tried to do this, you will know how hard it is.

Taking up this topic is #Fun.Basel speaker Mahima. She is in Villa Crescenda tomorrow night on Dec 6, 2016 on her late night special from 20:00 to 22:00 speaking about “Recoding Negative Habits”.

JOIN US – with this link you will get one of the last open seats.

Looking forward to meet Mahima tomorrow – being around her always brings light and answers question, even when I did not consciously have any.

It is a coincidence to write this on a 5th of Dec = KRAMPUS   with the event coming up on 6th of Dec = NICHOLAS.

An Austro-Bavarian Alpine tradition: Krampus punishes children who have misbehaved on the 5th of December and Saint Nicholas rewards the well-behaved with gifts on the 6th of December.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

Russische Impressionen – Thal und Bärnbach

Posted by traudljerlich on 28. November 2016

Thal und Bärnbach

Teil 4 – Eine ungewöhnliche Geschichte

mama-thalRussische Impressionen aus der Steiermark von Sveta und Nastya:
Jeder ihrer Beiträge ist eine Hommage an die Steiermark aus der Sicht einer mit allen Sinnen erfassenden Russin.

Thal und Bärnbach [Russian]

Original English Translation by Nastya

Report on trip to Austria, part 2

7-th day. The Church Ernst Fuchs
The Church Of Hundertwasser
Glass manufactory in Burbage.
By the way, this tank is in the center moved in my collection of vases.
The Eggenberg Palace.

I’m planning a separate posts about all the above.
The weather that day was disgusting. The temperature dropped, the rain periodically began to pour in buckets. I tried on the way to remove fields with pumpkins, – Styria is famous for the production of pumpkin oil, pumpkin grow here everywhere, and the fields look very cheerful – but the rain muddied glass. And nothing but a light orange stain outside the window of the car, did not work.

Traudl very tired that day. Winding road, lots of tunnels, heavy rain. Of the morning news the next day revealed that in some places in Styria, even the snow fell, and the roads there were many accidents, including and with sad outcomes.
Therefore, the following,
8-day was a day of rest. We did not travel outside of Mürzzuschlag. We just walked around the town, visited the Museum of Brahms, ran to the shops. In the evening we received a gift from Traudl on the excellent bottle of pumpkin seed oil!

9-th day. In the morning we said goodbye to the nice Mürzzuschlag and sailed back to Vienna, where the first thing rushed to KHM to watch Brueghel.
Well, of course, not only Brueghel. A lot of things, and other interesting. After KHM, I fulfilled a mother’s duty and led my child to the Technical Museum.

I was found very interesting:
Once, in a past life, the subject of my dissertation included the prosthetics of the lower extremities. There were many interesting things on this topic in the Museum

We took to the Museum’s closing time and, frankly, not enough…

Nastya, instead of the Museum, went to Albertina. In her heart, knocked “the ashes of Klaas» the hare of Durer.
She saw the hare and the impressionists, and was perfectly happy. In this good mood she went to visit Tanya, where they watched a film about the theme of the Impressionists.
Stas and I went in search of Gazometro, and 20 hours had Daytona the Museum of sounds ( House music). On the advice of Traudl got off at the station and drove to the station on. But gone, apparently, in the wrong direction, went long and circles ))).

On the road:

The long-awaited gasometry..
So, gasometry we won!
It’s time to the Museum sounds. In the subway we got off at the right stop, and then we could not navigate. “House music?, – happily asked the tourist-Spanish – follow for us!” And we boys ran after the Spaniards. This house fled to a crowd!)
and the house was not the same…To “our” house we came at 8 PM and 15 minutes later. And time for the examination of a large heap of interactive exhibits seemed to us too little.

10th, the last day. Stas was in a deep sleep, Nastya and I went to the flea market, which operates exclusively on Saturdays ( the other days they sell food and stuff). The Vienna market called the Naschmarkt. In someone else’s story I read that a very appropriate name, because this “Markt” clearly “ours.” Fully confirm, – the number of Russian merchants “was through the roof» ). The market is located a pair of kilometers in length.

Nastya said it’s no good idea without a purpose to wander around the market, it is necessary to determine their desires. I wanted a little vase, a little doll and something for my soul ))). Nastya – wanted to find vintage jewelry and one definite book. From the market she left a few sad, because nothing found. However, she did not know which moral compensation is waiting for her in the evening. My program was 100% complete. Now I am the happy owner of three subjects about which I know nothing, but they like me by the way, if among you there are experts and will tell anything. Unlikely, of course, but suddenly…

So it will be placed. The vase ))) Rather, a bottle of perfume. Judging by the picture, refers to the modern era. Similar analogues in the Internet is not
found. But they found exactly the same cover, which, oddly enough, do not refer to modernism and to him the preceding Victorian era. I admit that the cap may not be native. Although the size is suitable. Best of all, from the cap and from the bottle, still exudes a slightly noticeable subtle perfume “Bouquet de Nice” ) now Dolly.

Originally wanted another. But that was sold only in pair with the boy in national costume. Not mine… I sighed, rummaged in the box and pulled out the tucked under the larger and more prominent of the beauties of this one:
She got me hooked. Probably a bow ))) Doll celluloid, sold as pre-war. I am not an expert, so I asked about its origin in the community on Facebook. Replied that the products of the factory “Minerva”. Maybe post-war, and maybe pre-war ))) And then my post deleted. Mess ))) Because a bunch of questions I was left with ) the information found in this factory: closed in 1955, the mark besides the word Germany starting from 1933 there was an inscription of Minerva. From what I have it isn’t there, a doll made earlier in 1933. I am silent, I see her all the same style ))) But there was a bunch of “but”: all the little dolls Minerva, whose photos have found have molded hair, my doll had real hair. And a stamp in the upper right part of the same (like a helmet), but all that’s left under this hat, unlike. However, in that Minerva joined a few other, smaller factories. Possible that done on one of them. But with a year to decide and failed. I want to determine at least a decade )))And the third thing ) Which for the soul ))) I don’t even know what it is ) as condition things is bad. But I fell in love with her at first sight ))) My little hands reached out to her, unable to break away ) the Salesman said that this Bedemier. Somehow trusted him right away ).

At first I thought it was a handbag. And in form it resembles, and flanked by two decent holes, as if a pen from her threw up. But after scrolling through books on fashion history, I started to doubt. All handbags of this period in the books of cloth knitted or made of a metal mesh, and leather that is not visible in the book. Maybe it’s not the bag, and some road four wheel accessory? I asked the expert on the history of costume. She said she’ll think about it. But it is silent, she is silent as the guerrilla on interrogation. Already I do not expect an answer.Well, okay, it’s time for us to leave the “flea market” ))) and return to the apartment to pick up my son ))). Secession was on the way.And anyway, this whole quarter of solid art Nuovo. Art Nouveau, as they call it here.
All together with Stas go to the House of the Sea. Price hoo! Well, there are some interesting… Although the St. Petersburg aquarium is much better. And the price is lower. Nastya it was not yet, because the House of the sea her unconditionally love.

What is good in the House of the sea is the viewing platform.In Schönbrunn with its palace, zoo and other delights son refused to go, early in the morning by choosing a replacement – the House of the sea. “No luck in cards, lucky in love…”, I mean so lucky in the morning on “the flea” because it is foolish to think that the rest of the day will also carry. Really, the second Museum today son chose MUMOK (Museum of modern art). Well, I did not like…

By seven PM we were home. Packed up for departure, waited, Traudl, which, like a the good kind fairy, came to us with gifts. And, most surprisingly, Nastya received the gift of the book with watercolor paintings, a book which dreamed! With a bottle of sunny spanish “Rioja”, Traudl told us absolutely incredible story of finding this book. So, miracles do happen and dreams come true. Especially when the good wizards try your hand )))
And wait for stories about the individual, only indicated here, landmarks )))
