This isn’t business as usual, we can come to that later. Business as usual has time but we can use a short break to finally start shaping our own future. From September 20th – 27th 2019 millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels. I’m ready and will support this movement.
If not for ourselves, our relatives, our children, who do we earn all that money for? If we really think about it: What’s all the money worth if the climate we live in, the world and society we live in isn’t worth living anymore? What if we live in a place that’ll be flooded by the sea, that’ll be burning down every summer? Let’s do our best to act on our own to cut down emissions and drive less by car, fly less around the world, especially if it’s “for fun”. Let’s go on the streets and demand politicians to act on the matter as well. And let’s show our employers, companies around the world that they need to act as well.
Together we can change everything, we just need to stop doing business as usual for a day and set a sign. After that, we can focus on work again—and likely with a better feeling and more motivation.

Call it nostalgic or not, the times when we simply uploaded a file via FTP and it was live on servers were easy days. Now with all the CI/CD tooling around, we clearly have gotten many advantages in terms of security, version management and testability. However, a simple solution looks different.

- Why trying to follow the question of how to motivate employees is misguided and how to be a great manager by supporting employees’ own thoughts, ideas and with that foster self-motivation.
