Most of the stuff we love is fiction. We happily adopt clichés to explain that something is “like in the movies”. We love monsters, aliens, cowboys and girls, heroes, wizards and spies who lead lives that we can’t, don’t or won’t. Unless you’re Walter Mitty, fiction endlessly improves lives. Like this non-fiction newsletter. Have your notebook to hand and be ready to scribble notes in the margin. So, you happily adopt ideas to explain something is “like from this newsletter”. Cheers, Ivy
Disney’s Research Engineer Loïc Ciccone | Der Lebenslauf

In his current role at Disney Studios, he’s combining his love for tech and art. And guess what: He is very happy in his job. No intense goal striving or career ladder climbing. And we are not surprised.

Forest – Stay focused, be present.
If you spend too much time on your phone and want to be productive, I can recommend the Forest App. With it, you can set how long you don’t want to use your phone and if you make it, a virtual tree will be planted. If not, the tree dies. The goal is, of course, to create a forest as large as possible.
Tim – forester and developer with a green thumb.
No parents, no children. No children, no future.
Questions about having children in a job interview? Parental leave as a career killer? Unjustified rejection of part-time applications? These are just three examples of parental discrimination. The #proparents campaign aims to create legal foundations to prevent parental discrimination.
