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

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?

Dr. Kardasz wird über die Belastungen in unserem täglichen Leben sprechen und wie sie sich auf unseren Körper auswirken. Gleichzeitig wird er Lösungen aufzeigen, die aus der Natur kommen und uns helfen, unsere Gesundheit zu schützen.

Er hat in Jahrzehnten an Forschungsarbeit und persönliche Erfahrungswerte in die Entwicklung seiner Produkte investiert, die er erstmalige in Deutschland vorstellen wird. Für Themen wie Borreliose, Herzkreislaufkrankheiten, Krebs, Paraziten, Diabetis, Migräne, Stress kennt er Begleiter aus der Natur und er möchte sein Wissen weitergeben.

Was erwartest du dir?

Es wird ein spannender Abend mit Verkostung der Produkte und einem leckeren Buffet. Wir werden viele tolle Leute aus der Naturmedizin treffen und ich freue mich auf die strahlende Energie von Dr. Kardasz. Er kommt aus Polen, meinem Heimatland und ist dort auf so vielen Kongressen unterwegs, dass wir Glück haben, ihn in Freiburg zu sehen …

Gibt es noch Plätze?

Es gibt noch einige wenige Last Minute Plätze, die wir gerade vergeben. Hier sind die wichtigsten Informationen: Flyer Kongress Freiburg

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

Russische Impressionen – Thal und Bärnbach

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 )))

Russische Impressionen – More Admont

Posted by traudljerlich on 23. November 2016

Mehr von Admont – Bibliothek, Museum und Park

Teil 3 – Eine ungewöhnliche Geschichte

bibliothek-admontRussische 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.

Admont Bibliothek [Russian]

Original English Translation by Nastya

The monasteries have always been not only a religious place but also a place of learning. Admont fully cared about the education of local children and youth. The monastery has  three museums.

The first of them is the Museum of natural history.

Just it is a classic. It is very small. I t is just a baby compared to our Petersburg Zoological Museum. But the collection is wonderful.

Nastya really liked the shelves with minerals…

…and I with birds

The colors are most unusual.

The ladies deer are horned too )))

The monks a little joked  in this Museum. This lion roars loudly when someone is  approaching to the exhibits.

After a devastating fire in 1865  the monastery and museum was restored. The Father Gabriel Strobl (1866-1910) devoted to the museum 44 years of his life. He devoted  himself to the botany  12 years and the following 32 years – entomology. He created a collection of 252000 instances of insects. Almost everything that we now see in the Museum is the work of Strobl. What he could not himself produce in his expeditions he is exchanged or bought. Еру сcollection of Strobl it’s something!!!

In one of the rooms has 243 varieties of Styrian apples. All made of wax by his father Constantine Kepler ((1778-1864). Some varieties of the now non-existent.

In General, the Museum is very worthy.

In one of the rooms have 243 varieties of apples from Styria. It is made of wax by his father Constantine Kepler ((1778-1864). Some varieties of apples are no more. In general this museum is very worthy.

Another museum is the Kunsthistorisches Museum. It presents the exhibits from the Romanesque period to the Rococo.  It is the paintings, sculptures, textiles.

The most valuable exhibits are the embroidery made by famous master Brother Benno Haan (1631-1720).

The view from the stairs at the glass transition from floor to floor.

The third museum is the museum of Modern Art. I understand that his exposition periodically updated. Here the authors are well frolicked. I like that most of the work has humor  in contrast the works in Vienna’s MUMOK. Here is an example of the use of spoons-forks not for its intended purpose.

The elegant chandelier made of plastic bottles.

I stumbled in the hallway on the currently fashionable artist Gironcoli.

And he was also spotted in the yard.

I can’t say that his work has impressed me. I retarded person.

And the area around the monastery is also quite good. There are a lot of flowers.

I liked the floral arrangements with the bricks in the windows of the flower shop

Here I asked   Stas to take a photo of me : Useless! Either he couldn’t fit the view in the frame, or does not fit the head or all remaining  body parts!

And it is a wonderful place to explore the local pond. You can see water lilies, ducks, swans, beautiful views of the mountains and the monastery. It is a very beautiful place.

From the monastery went to the nearby castle Strechau. The castle is the second largest in Styria. Inside should be an interesting museum.

But the first time we didn’t find the way and we had to go to the track countless kilometers. In general, when we arrived, the castle gates  had been already closed.

The castle is in private ownership. And it closes at 15:00.

With the lock connected a very old legend about an unfaithful lover.

The young girl took her lover to a crusade… And promised the knight that he would remain faithful to him to the grave. But if he does not return from a crusade, she will go to the monastery. Some time passed and she forgot about her promise. She said yes matchmaking to her grandee. They arranged a big wedding. But at the wedding feast with her there was a terrible metamorphosis: her delicate features distorted by a terrible grimace. Instead of the beautiful face  the stunned guests saw the skull. The ground opened under the feet of the unhappy and the demons dragged her to the hell…

The painting by an unknown artist Burgfräulein von Strechau hangs in the museum of Admont. And we made a little picnic on a bench in front of the castle. And we went  home…”

Wishing all the best, Nastya 🍁🍃🌞

Admont [Russian]

Original English Translation by Nastya

I found by chance, this place is in Austria, when I examined in the internet map of Styria (clicking on all the pictures in a row). This place is in the boonies, it far from any major cities. After seeing the picture, I opened my mouth in amazement. What appeared before my eyes? It was a monastery library.

… And here, Traudl invited us into her car. Outside the window began to flash (flickersed) the beautiful views.In the immediate vicinity there is the national Park Gesäuse. So, if someone wants to spend their holiday actively, and in beautiful place, let has in mind this place is a Park and monastery, and a castle nearby.Two hours later we arrived at the scene.The monastery is situated in extensive grounds in the valley. And surround the monastery on all sides of the mountain, half of which are more than two kilometers tall.

We were lucky. The day was Sunday, in the courtyard of the monastery turned fair. There were local products, drinks, Souvenirs. Festivities were in full swing, many people were in national costumes.Generally things of juniper were many, but all very expensive.
People in the courtyard of a cultural rest, slowly drank the drinks of varying strength and listened to the orchestra.The orchestra itself is also not to offend. Even the nuns are allowed a little aperitif)

A General impression that in Austria everything and always in a good mood. ))) The monastery in Admont has a very venerable age.We staring on the bright bushes, and almost missed the point in this photograph – St. Emma. But it all started!But thank God for Nastya, who photographed the text on the green board.Judging by the headdress, inside the Church is also St.Emma.

Emma was born in 980. She was married Wilhelm of Friesach-Sanngau. She gave birth to two sons and lived happily and richly until murder her sons during the uprising. Their father is brutally murdered with a rebellious people after went to Rome to atone for sins. But the way he died. Emma was left alone. She spent all the wealth on charity, investing in the foundation of monasteries. Here it was founded the monastery of Admont, but 30 years after her death. Emma was beatified in 1287, and was canonized in 1938.

I admire Emmas headpiece )))

Photo from here

The information about St. Emma from the same and from the story of Olga

The land and the money was from Emma, but the real founder was Gebhard (1010 – 1088), Archbishop of Salzburg

In 1074 the monks Benedictines arrived here of the parish of St. Peter in Salzburg. In 1120 there appeared a women’s monastery of the Benedictine order. In 1644 he founded the school at the monastery. And besides, in the 17th century, the school of embroidery, led by brother Benno Haan. In 1735 under the direction of architect Gotthard Hayberger it began rebuilding in the Baroque style, which was continued by Joseph Hueber.

Please note that the picture of 1839 the monastery looks somewhat different than it is now. The head of the Church crowned with onions. (This and the next two pictures are from the site of the monastery. Information from the same place)http://www.stiftadmont.at/en/

But in 1865 a fire destroyed almost the whole monastery, with the exception of the library.

In the following years after the fire the monastery was built again. In the 1930-ies of the monks provided their living by selling works of art. In 1939 the Nazis expropriated the monastery and in 1945 the monks returned here.
Currently the Abbey is a spiritual, cultural and economic center of international fame. In his charge are 26 parishes, nursing home and a middle school with 700 students. In all of these schools employs approximately 500 people. In the monastery the monks 26. From 1 August 1996 the dean of monastery is Bruno Hübl. His motto, “Ex caritate confidens de adiutorio Dei” –

mercy, relying on God’s help.

So the monastery looks from the height of bird flight

The collegiate Basilica dedicated to St. Blaise.

The founder Gebhard was buried in the chancel.
Quite by accident I found on the internet the information that in a monastery in 1094 he died one of the daughters of Yaroslav the Wise – Anastasia Yaroslavna. She was the wife of the king of Hungary András I. The name of the Admont monastery (and in older sources – Almond). This daughter of the Russian Tsar Yaroslav. Anastasia died not later than 1094, as in this year she was mentioned as deceased. According to legend, she died in the Admont monastery or Almond that in Styria. Anastasia is second from the left in the mural.
Through the Admont is the pilgrimage way of St. Emma. The way out in the southern part of Austria, then to Slovenia. Stretches 187 km elevation Changes are significant.http://www.outdooractive.com/de/pilgerweg/alpenregion..

You can see the pilgrims on pictures.

It’s late and we go to the museums part of the Abbey.
We looked interesting multimedia show About the monastery and the order of Benedictines.
The library is the main treasure of the monastery.
Before entering the library are copies of medieval manuscripts. They are beautiful in the extreme.

Russische Impressionen aus der Steiermark

Posted by traudljerlich on 8. November 2016

Eine ungewöhnliche Geschichte über die Steiermark und St. Petersburg

Auf dem Camino del Norte in Spanien haben Karin und ich zwei Wanderinnen getroffen, sind einige Tage zusammen gewandert und haben uns in Spanisch und Englisch sehr unterhaltsam verständigt.

Sveta und Nastya sind in St. Petersburg zu Hause, unsere Muttersprachen Russisch und Deutsch konnten wir nicht verwenden. Besonders ein Erlebnis mit einem aus seiner Weide ausgebrochenen Jungstier, der den Städterinnen sehr gefährlich erschien, hat sich in unserer Erinnerung bewahrt. Der glückliche Ausgang dieses Abenteuers hat mehr mit Händen und Füßen als mit Worten seinen Abschluss gefunden. Wie oft auf Wanderungen haben wir unsere Emails ausgetauscht und unsere Wege haben sich getrennt. Karin und ich hatten unser Ziel erreicht. Sveta und Nastya sind bis Santiage de Compostela weiter gewandert.

Nach einiger Zeit haben wir Fotos ausgetauscht und sind in loser Verbindung geblieben. Im Sommer 2014 traf ich Sveta und Nastya in St. Petersburg wieder. Unsere Verständigung war noch ein wenig spannender, denn Karins Spanisch hat gefehlt (ich war mit einer anderen Gruppe unterwegs). Eine russische Freundin der beiden, die auf Heimaturlaub aus Australien in St. Petersburg war, übernahm die Übersetzungsarbeit. Wir hatten wieder viel Spass und haben uns einen Nachmittag lang köstlich unterhalten. Ich dachte an eine Einladung der beiden nach Oesterreich.

traudlDiesen August 2016 kamen die beiden mit Svetas Sohn Stanislaw nach Wien und dann nach Mürzzuschlag, wo ich wohne. Sveta hatte in ihrer Vorbereitung ein umfangreiches Programm erstellt mit allen Orten und Sehenswürdigkeiten, die sie gerne sehen wollten. Nastya hatte in der Zwischenzeit ihre Englischkenntnisse in Kursen erweitert. So wagte ich mich in das Abenteuer. Zuerst erfolgte ein Wiedersehen mit Karin, ein von ihr liebevoll zubereitetes vorzügliches Essen und das Auffrischen von Erinnerungen in Klosterneuburg.

Nach dieser doch etwas längeren Vorgeschichte komme ich zum eigentlichen Anlass meines Artikels.

Sveta hat Eindrücke von unseren Ausflügen in der Steiermark festgehalten und in mehreren Postings online gestellt. Jeder dieser Beiträge ist eine Hommage an die Steiermark aus der Sicht einer mit allen Sinnen erfassenden Russin.

Grüner See [Russian]

Noch mal Grüner See [Russian]

Original English Translation by Nastya

“Austria is amazingly beautiful country! And we have not been to the mountainous parts of it. The trip was limited to Styria and Vienna.

In Austria every step of the castles…

…and interesting museums.

But the main wealth of Austria is people. Wonderful, kind, hardworking, very cheerful and very musical.

And the best of the Austrians to us, of course, Traudl, thanks to her  took place on this trip! If you knew what a fairy she was! Thank you, dear!!! May God grant you health, luck and fulfillment of wishes!

And where you can meet such great people as Traudl? Of course, on the Camino ))) There they go in the a crowd of people  (droves)    ))).

There we met with Karin. And a huge thank you to her that during their brief stay in Austria, she found the time to meet with us!

But sitting still wasn’t done. Lives in Vienna one infinitely dear to us – Tanya Gurin gmarta . And thank you, Tanya, for the meeting and gifts!

1 day. Vienna. 1 day. Vienna. The center of the city we toured on the tram on the ring (and then walked )

Hundertwasser house + village Hundertwasser

Church St.Othmar

The Hundertwassers Museum

Waste-to-energy plant project of Hundertwasser saw a glimpse, passing by in the subway.

By 12 o’clock, we rushed to the famous Ankeruhr clock. We could not find them and upset that it was late because it was already the first hour. But it turned out that the clock is well behind! Finding them, we still waited for 10-15 minutes, when the passage of the shapes.)))

Then we looked in the oldest Church Ruprecht

And in the Greek Church

And to the “dear Augustine”

We went to dinner in “Figlmueller”, where the reviews online was a endless wieners schnitzel and democratic prices.

I asked the waiter for ice water. He replied that alas… no. Then I tried to joke and asked for some ice without  water. The waiter laughed. But 10 minutes later he brought me a glass of ice without water” ))). Phew, what a joy it was, considering that on the street the day was muggy and hot.

After dinner we walked to the Cathedral of St. Stephen, on Stephanplatz and the district.

Then we bought a family combo-ticket “Treasury of the Hofburg + KNM”, but two museums on this day did not happen because of the intolerable stuffiness in the Treasury. With tenderness and nostalgia were reminded of our well air-conditioned and well-lit Museum space. There is almost total absence of light and air. By the way, Traudl was interested that Austria seemed to us better or worse than us. Well, “best” in Austria are endless ))), but a distinct disadvantage in Austria, we noticed bad transport links between settlements and very bad air conditioning.. In all museums it was hot and stuffy.

The day ended with a meeting with Tanya, who, as it turned out, lived just a 10 minute walk from our place.

2nd day. It was in the Kreuzensteins castle and Klosterneuburg. Where we met Karin. with Karin. About this day will be a separate post. And, most likely, two posts. )

The evening of the same day to the sound of rain we drink in small sips a cherry liqueur with Tanya )

3rd day. Early morning we moved from Vienna to Mürzzuschlag. Scenic area Simmeringly railway, included in the UNESCO list, among other things.

We located in the house of Traudl, surveyed the area, settled down in the car and went to the lake Grüner See and spent the day. About the lake there will be a separate post.

The 4th day was held in the Abbey of Admont. About it will a separate post. On the way back wanted to get to the castle Strihou, but not the first time I got onto the right road and came straight after its closure. We looked at the locked gate, had a little picnic but went home.

5-th day. The pilgrimage to Mariazell.

6-th day. Neuberg an der Mürz. Abbey glass manufacture. And pseudo-Hundertwasser ))) “

Simple solutions

Posted by jjerlich on 2. November 2016

wp_20160720_009When you find yourself in a difficult situation or facing a complex problem, others always find it simple and easy to solve. You get suggestions on how to solve the problem right away.

Do you know that feeling? I do.

Sometimes we even know the solution when we actually had time to think about it. It is not so easy though to apply your inner wisdom. It needs time and space to stay in touch with your inner voice and take decisions accordingly. A third person to sort out the conversations between you and yourself makes a huge difference.

I recently met Martin & Stefan who have the gift to help people doing just that: Sorting out what they already know, face the unknowns and manifest your inner powers through decisions and actions. Sounds too fluffy?

  • Martin is a master in guiding people to allow themselves to surface the knowledge you already have to create the life you want.
  • Stefan is the left side of the brain and a capacity in putting processes in place to grow your business, ideas and skills.

I convinced them to share their methods and exercises beyond their normal 1:1 setting. They are holding a very first 1-Day workshop in Basel on 12.11.2016.

They gave me the gift of 15 special workshop tickets to forward to my personal network which I am happy to offer you – just contact me.

If the date does not fit into your schedule or you are not in Basel but you still would like to know more about their activities, please leave them your email on their website and you will receive updates on their upcoming programs in different cities and online.

Happy to see you next Saturday or connect with you online.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

It is my time

Posted by juttajerlich on 29. September 2016

Female Entrepreneurship is on the rise, companies with women leaders do better and startups created by women are more successful.

When will there be a better time?

I decided to make 2016 my year
√ I took time out to get my creativity back
√ stopped working on the weekends,
√ searched for mentors to help me grow my impact and independence in doing so

iswear2.

I met Martin & Stefan in a workshop that was as much fun as serious …  committing to our own goals :-)

Working with them helped me to untangle the complexity in my thoughts and start doing rather than thinking. Proven tools and personal support for keeping yourself on track are doing the trick.

Thrilled to hear that they are now opening up:
they designed a free experiential seminar “Boost Your Business: Unleash Your Entrepreneurial Potential”
in Basel upcoming on 14th of October.

Make it your time now

RESERVE YOUR SEAT

Leverage your impact

Hebel

See you there …

It happens … to all of us

Posted by Stefan@tapabundance.com on 20. September 2016

Errors, defeat, mistakes or failure … whatever word we use for something that has not worked out the way we wanted it to.

What it could hold for us?

Everything that happens will and does have a reason for happening. It sounds a little bit like a cliché however it’s a truth.

The reason can be anything, and maybe it takes a lot of time to be revealed to you. If you start to understand this first important point, you can start to look for the reason in failure and defeat, which you will encounter on your journey.

The next important aspect is this: Failure and Defeat will happen, to all of us. There is nobody excluded from it and nobody will ever be excluded.

stefan_logarWhat is the difference between these two?

Defeat is much more permanent than failure. Defeat is the complete loss of something. If you encounter defeat it can mean that you have to start all over again. It could mean, that you have to rethink a plan completely or it could mean that you would even have to change the products or services you’re offering.

If you encounter defeat, it always will be accompanied by an opportunity. Defeat holds many important lessons for you to learn.

  • It will show you clearly that you were not ready to start in a broad sense.
  • It shows you that you need to gather and apply more new and specialized information and concepts.
  • It shows you also that you have to increase the amount of time that you spend on your journey and be more mindful where you actually spend it on.

Defeat holds a key for you. This key is called translated success. If you overcome defeat, learn from it and adjust to the outcome, it holds an equal amount of success removing the defeat in total.

Failure is something that occurs around us every single day and hides in every action we take.  It comes in many disguises and shows in faces everywhere you look if your mind is programmed to see it.

Not sticking to your own goals and timetables could lead to failure. Also not managing to write the blog you wanted is a failure. As not selling the amounts you hoped for is a failure. And all failures, as well as defeats, come along for a reason.

The sense behind it is, that you start to understand that failure teaches you the responsibility you have for your actions.

If you do start to blame others or things for the failure, you clearly are missing the point that failure is trying to teach you.

It also holds another important lesson for you.  It shows you which roads not to take and the decisions not to make.

“Keep looking for the lessons in failure and defeat. As they will occur and have to occur to help you arise into the personality of a successful entrepreneur that you need to become, to reach your desired lifestyle.”

From a match to the lantern

Posted by juttajerlich on 30. August 2016

Where did the quest take you?

Here is how the story started:
It started with a match …
It started with a match … Part II

Stunned at my success at truing a match into 59 francs I called in to what would be my last transaction. I was running out of time. It was another gift shop with lost of items that looked more expensive than they were. The assistant and I hated and started to select what might be a good trade.

We both know that the retail price is no where near the acquisition price so I thought I was on to a good thing, that is until the owner came back in. At first she, the owner, was somewhat shocked at my proposition but rapport is a beautiful thing.

Remember I am in Zurich and to start with this lady wouldn’t open up in English. with a bit of banter, and pointing out that I am only doing what one of her posters on the wall was saying …

”If you don’t ask for what you want, you won’t get it”,

we became friend in trading. The big challenge here, for me, was she didn’t rate the price tag on the fake lavender. She told me in fact that the quaintly was awful (not her word obviously) and not worth anything other. That said I now believe this to have been a savvy negotiating tactic as I walked out of this shop with a proper gift.

A beach style lantern complete with candle and a price tag of 94 francs.

From a single valueless match to a lantern priced at 94 franc in just over an hour.

So, what can I learn from this?

  • in any negotiation make sure you are talking to the budget holder
  • in any negotiation the other person is always negotiating too
  • build rapport and keep it building politeness and humour go a long way
  • value and price are not always related

FUN.Basel Vol III @Fluxdock

Posted by jjerlich on 29. August 2016

FUN Basel eingeladen im Fluxdock // FUN Basel invited to Fluxdock

AFun_basel at Fluxdockfter the first Fuckup Night in Basel we were approached by Elias Schäfer, CEO and Member of the Board at FLUXDOCK AG, who read the article about it in Basler Zeitung. He invited us to bring the Fuckup Nights Basel to Fluxdock.

What is Fluxdock?

It is a place where interdisciplinary teams can collaborate, realize concrete ideas using technology and the Fluxdock network to multiply the intended impact.

The crucial objective is to collaborate across company borders, break down barriers and bring ideas with high level of innovation to project maturity within the short time frame of only one or two weeks.

– – –    The Innovation Department for your company    – – –

A great offer and a real match:

My Creativity Engineering program at the Vienna University of Technology trains engineers to develop their creative confidence. It offers a collaboration space and simulation environment to present their ideas, create or find a team collaborating across disciplines to grow their ideas into products and services.

The Challenge

Being able to speak about errors and mistakes – that happen when new things are being created – openly is key. “Fail fast, fail often, learn quickly” is certainly a useful approach that speeds up creation and development.

Join us for the

FB Sept

We are looking forward to welcome our speakers

  • Asitta Tabatabai – Inspiring Coach, Trainer and Mediator
  • Daniel Jordi – Creator of The ChangeMakers Hub & LinkedREvolution
  • Kurt Schmid – Leading Communication Professional, founder of persuasion.ch

It started with a … match

Posted by juttajerlich on 28. August 2016

How did the quest continue?

Here is how the story started:
It started with a match …

On the quest to understand what value is:

Martin 2

Over the road was a small independent florist. My strategy, as it emerged was to target business owners rather than franchises or chain shops. On the way in I noticed some small plants outside for between 12 and 18 francs.

A birthday card for a small plant? Now that has to be a good deal (for me). It was nice and cool inside but as I entered I noticed the 4 women who worked inside, and fortunately one of them was the business owner. She patiently listened to my story, delighted in my feature and benefit sale of the new and unused birthday card, revelled in the banter and did the deal on a real lavender plant. Onwards and upwards.

Success breads success and bored with my own I entered a gift shop that had a sale on. This time the owner was not in the shop and would be away some time. However, on hearing the story it was clear the two ladies in this shop wanted to help.
