Now | March 2023

This is my “now” page inspired by Derek Sievers. It answers “what I’m doing now?“. My life, projects and priorities. I post an update here every 1-3 months.

What’s up as of March 2023?

How about we automate everything and we have more time to have fun (making pancakes)!

Having Family fun with Pancakes 🥞

We recently had Pancake Day, and additionally, in our family, we also celebrated Fat Thursday. A lot of reasons to have a lot of pancakes.. and some fun too.
My son asked me if he could make pancakes this year. The first thought that came to my mind was – It would be messy.

However, occasionally, we have to allow people to learn something; if we do it right, they will not break too many eggs while learning.

We had a great time and we learned a lot!

  • We went through the procedure. I showed which bit gets really hot and made two first pancakes.
  • We then went very slowly through his first pancake. He did every step, but I was literally holding his hand. And I told him exactly what to do, why, the next step, and when he needed extra attention.
  • My son saw all this pancake operation as great fun. That's why he was keen on trying to make it himself. And he did. I saw he was out of his comfort zone, but he quickly grasped the situation fully, and voila!
  • When we learn, things do not always go to plan. Daniel was quite upset when he "destroyed" one of his pancakes. I explained it was normal. I did it countless times. And we can still eat it!
  • We had a big party at the end. Everyone admitted it was the best pancakes we'd ever eaten.

Rereading “Never Split the Difference” 📕

Past years I had a goal to read (listen to) one book per month. This year is different.

This year my goal so to reread some of them and be more intentional to draw some lessons.

I'm currently reading "Never Split the Difference: Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It" by Chris Voss.

Here are 3 lessons to implement today:

1️⃣ use calibrated questions to gain an understanding of the other person's perspective and feelings. Calibrated questions are open-ended questions that can be used to explore the other person's motivations and objectives. This is important in order to understand their unique needs and wants and to be able to craft an effective negotiation strategy.

2️⃣ use tactical empathy to build rapport and trust with the other person. Tactical empathy is the ability to show genuine understanding and appreciation for the other person's feelings and position. This will create an atmosphere of trust and understanding, which is essential for successful negotiations.

3️⃣ make small offers in order to make progress and keep the other person engaged in negotiations. Making small offers can help create momentum and keep the other person interested in the negotiation. Small offers can also encourage the other person to make counter-offers, which can help move the negotiation forward.

Automating this “Now” page ⏳

One of my goals for this year is to automate as much of my workflow as possible. After successfully automating my Newsletter, I am applying the same framework ( and Airtable) to every other aspect of my digital kingdom.

I even slowly build my digital assistant, based on no-code/low-code tools supporting machine learning. If you are interested in this topics, I highly recommend checking this:

Imagine your own AI Avatar-assistant capable of remembering your notes and helping you find relevant information. It can even perform actions on your behalf, using API nad no-code tools. 🗺️ Use this free blueprint to make your own Avatar and see how I made mine!
