I am thinking positive, not only about the progress my BLOG is currently making, and try to motivate others to do the same. Being a role model and positive example can help other people to initiate a change or to try out something new. No guarantee that it always will be better, but it will be different.

Just today we had a discussion about the amount of meetings in our calendars and the increase during the 100% home office phase. Reducing the amount of meetings starts with yourself - learn to say "NO" and be honest with yourself, if you can really add value in the meeting - do not wait for your manager or colleagues to take the 1st step. Make your change, talk about it and be a positive example for others. Sooner or later the amount of meetings will go down, definitely for yourself and maybe for the colleagues as well 😉.
