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:

Raluca Popescu FUN.Basel Vol VIRaluca Popescu
Passionate about teaching, behavioral economics, design thinking. She is learning to be comfortable with not having a clear answer when asked “what she’s going to do with her life”.

If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.

She holds an MSc in Strategic Marketing and has worked in a variety of environments, including two universities, a multinational corporation, a service design consultancy and a start-up incubator. In her story she reflected about the situation when the application for a dream job failed.

What is the one thing in your life?

Ralf is describing a not unusal situation, completely clear – many people can put themselves in the same shoes: realizing that one person can not change an entire company.
We still try!

It is ok to share what you know.

Sandra just published her book:
Get clear – Craft and deliver impactful presentations worth hearing

It is a book to read in an evening (not a book with 500 pages that stays in the bookshelve). Thanks for the insights – here is where you can get it

 

A note for us all

Becoming visible with your expertise is definitely not something easy. The challenges we face today demand that we all stop hiding. We need to have each others backs and come together as a community to solve the problems of our societies.

Be part of this community!
We are looking forward to see you soon – June 22, 2017

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.”

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
