Your vision will become clear…

April 27, 2007

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.

Who looks outside, dreams.

Who looks inside, awakens.

– Carl Jung –

It is good to stop living in your head and opening up your heart 😉 I have been doing this a lot lately and I must say : I like it much more!

What about you? Still living in your head?

Enjoy every day,


Featuring other blogs ?

April 26, 2007

Hi all,

As you know I invest quite some time in Ecademy (as a Blackstar Ecademy Blackstar), where I have a lot of friends. Some of them have absolutely fantastic blogs! So, I decided to share my knowledge with you 😉

The first featured blog is from Jan Vermeiren, a.k.a. the Networking Coach (Did I mention his book?). Jan is a great networker and serves you a lot of networking tips! Have look at his blog too…He’s giving away free e-courses 😉

Enjoy every day,


The BIG Game is back!

April 26, 2007

A lot of people have asked me to publish The BIG Game again. More and more trainers are using this game in their workshops. So, it must be good then, right 😉

It is an excellent fun game to play with anyone!

How well do you know other people (really)? This game is meant to speed up the process of learning other people in depth. Even friends who you know a long time will come up with fascinating stories…

Download it and give it a try!

Have fun,


Summarise yourself!

April 25, 2007

Recently I did a very interesting exercise : summarise yourself in 5 keywords, 5 keynumbers, 3 dreams and 1 quote.

Here are mine:

Create     Connect     Contribute     Empathy     Fun 

My numbers :

3     7     800     1991     400,000,000

My dreams:

Oceania     (Australia, NewZealand, Fiji, Tonga, etc.)

Wally     (enjoying my custom Wally sailboat, check out

Contribute to the happiness in the world

My personal quote:

Enjoy every day!

So, what are yours ? Dare to talk about them…

Enjoy every day,


A new life, a new mission, a new website

April 25, 2007

After writing my new mission in life, I had to come up with a new website as well 😉

The main elements of my new life are my three C’s : Create, Connect & Contribute.

Read all about it on my (brand new) website! Now that people start visiting my website, the word will spread that I have a blog. Until now, I almost wrote ‘undercover’, like not telling people about it, so I could get some content first 😉

What is your mission in life ? And do you live up to it ?

And of course, any feedback on my website and blog are welcome as well!

Getting prepared!

April 18, 2007

Last weekend, I started to prepare my trip to Santiago.

We walked for 15km (still easy, but building up) with a fully loaded backpack on my back! Indeed my body needs to know what’s coming 😉

The weather was great and similar to what I am expecting in Spain : dry, clear sky, 30-something °C, small roads, woods, etc.

On monday I swam 750m in a pool nearby.

So, on my way to become fit again!

What do you do to remain fit?

Have a great day,

On the road to Santiago

April 10, 2007

Today is the first day of the rest of my life and I’ve decided it’s going to be a fantastic life! To contemplate on my future, I am going for a stroll of 800km between Saint Jean-Pied-de-Port and Santiago de Compostella 😉 Check out this blog for updates!

The journey to Santiago starts on the 13th of May

Enjoy every day,


Are you bluffing?

April 1, 2007

Are you (sometimes) bluffing?

You’d better check out this website

I’ve tried several questions and I must admit it is not easy!

What’s it about? It asks you a question. You answer Way! (Yes) or No Way! (No). Look how many people got bluffed by the question…

Have fun,
