Would motivation like this work for renewable energy too?

It is all about motivation! We can all run a marathon, climb the biggest mountain or sail around the world, as long as we have the right motivation. The video below shows how people can be motivated to change something very small in their normal behaviour, without it having to cost them anything.

The question is, how can we use this in other aspects of our lifes where we feel the need to change peoples’ behavior? Should we build massive pianos everywhere? Or can we find something else that is as simple and as efficient as this example?

Something different, a cool skate video

This is a pretty cool skate video I wanted to share with you. The speed is phenomenal. Do you realise that there is a human standing on top of this skate board? Speed is not all that special, but when you realise it is not a car or plane, but a guy only centimetres removed from the concrete, you might get a bit more respect. So here is something different, but with great potential.

Imagine the possibilities of such a tiny camera!

More than 3 years in Australia and they still surprise me…

People here in Australia still amaze me. The other day I was walking down a street lined with little cafes and shops. It was a nice street to go for a coffee, which is always a favourite pastime for me. Unfortunately they were working on the sidewalk. Replacing something that wasn’t really broken in the first place it to make sure the government is spending … Continue reading More than 3 years in Australia and they still surprise me…

Useful Reaserch?

Thin Men Get Lower Pay than Average-Weight Men A man in the U.S. whose weight is 25 pounds below the mean earns $210,925 less, on average, across a 25-year career than a man whose weight is at the mean, according to a study by Timothy A. Judge of the University of Florida and Daniel M. Cable of London Business School. But a woman who is … Continue reading Useful Reaserch?

Or maybe what not to choose!

Another interesting quote from the Daily Stat from the Harvard Business Review. Interesting, especially when I am going to enjoy another long haul flight soon. Space can be very nice, especially when you have to sit still for 12 hours. If you don’t want to sit still, you can walk up and down the aisles, but how long will it take before the flight attendants start questioning your behaviour? I mean, nowadays you are even asked not to gather in groups around the toilets or in other places on the plane.

One Friend

I want to have one friend and one friend only! I will make an exception for 2 friends or perhaps even 3 friends, because I do like people.

Nicollo Webshop

There I really have to draw the line! It is not that I have turned anti social all of a sudden, no, far from it. Actually, it is more the opposite. I have been way too social. There are the international friends in Melbourne, the hockey friends, there is the family (yes I do have family, even in Melbourne!), there are the uni friends from the two different universities I am attending at the moment, there are the new friends from our week of hockey in Perth and of course there are the random friends we picked up along the way as well.
Oh I almost forgot. I have to attend classes at the university as well, and spend some hours at work. And lets not forget selling Magic Wallets on Nicollo.biz!

Boredom at work.

I always knew I liked to be busy. Doing useful things to stay busy or perhaps something useless. It is nice to know you have actually done something, to accomplish something, even when it is something insignificant. But I have never really been forced to be bored hours at a time…. There was always something to do or perhaps it was a choice not to … Continue reading Boredom at work.

The everyday quirks of the globetrotter

Globe TrotterOne of the problems one has when often has a a globetrotter, moving around and visiting different places are the people that you meet. Those people themselves are not a problem (most of the time at least), they are great fun and interesting people. I had and I am still having the best of times with these internationals! The different cultures bring so much to a group of friends.
