Why did I study #UX design if I don’t plan to be a UX designer (how did I do it and what have I learned)? For the last half a year I took on a new challenge. I decided to figure out what is #UXdesign all about. Not a unique decision, given how many people daily engage on this #learning adventure. The only difference is — most of them are either contemplating or even executing a career change. I am not. Yet, I still wanted to study UX. To set the scene: I am an #IP lawyer, #mediator and #writer. I have several successful and satisfying projects going on (#personalbuddy: wise friend for rent and @WynantsWriting), in other words, I am not really in search for a new direction in my professional career at this point in time. So why did I spent time on it, how did I approach it and what have I learned? #SimonSinek is strongly encouraging to always start with “why” and I cannot but agree. “Why” is the best possible motivator and the stronger your “why”, the more likely it is that you will follow through. So what was my “why”? I was curious. Sounds somewhat simplistic, doesn’t it? Perhaps. Still I was. I was curious to see how great products are made, I wanted to discover the thinking process behind creating a wow-effect. I was curious to find out if seamless, intuitive, pleasant and appealing designs have anything in common. I wanted to get a glimpse of this uniting trait that makes us, customers, fall in love with certain brands. That was my starting point. However, once I got into it and began my learning journey, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this fascinating domain. 😉 more to come (for the curious ones - check out the linkinbio - that’s the link to the full article published on Medium) #familylifeceo

To the Church in Laodicea 14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds,that you are neither cold nor hot.I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothesto wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. 19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. 21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” . . 🕊🕊🕊 . . #lukewarm #lukewarmisnogood #holyliving #holybible #holyofholies #holyspirit #mediator #holytrinity #holyghost #holylife #possible #powerinprayer #powerintheblood #powerofthemind #positive #positivity #princeofpeace #peace #prayerwarrior #prayerjournals #prayerworks #purelove #prayingmom #sav#saveddsgrace #savedbytheblood #savedbythebloodofjesus #saintsofgod #saltoftheearth #savedbygrace #saved

The Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris had a not so interesting week, as a video allegedly showing him struggling to read his own speech went viral and almost immediately, claims followed suit that the said video was “doctored”. . The Public relations department has been trying to show the good side of the IGP by showcasing his educational background and achievements. They made further claims that the video was edited. . THE PLACE OF A DAMAGE CONTROL EXPERT IN SUCH SITUATIONS: A damage control expert is like a surgeon that stops the bleeding. Damage control experts strive to mitigate impasses before the weight of conflict obscures the issues at the heart of the dispute and crush all involved parties. . THE GOAL OF MEDIATION: . The most realistic goal of mediation is to defuse disagreement to a point where the disputants can get on with their lives. . However in such situations, you display your emotions strategically, i.e. expressing your feelings constructively. By so doing, you show the other side that you don't tolerate. In the case of the Inspector General of Police, we make to say that he is human and we all make mistakes. . Following the claims that have gone rounds about the viral video, do you agree alleging the “video was doctored” was a good damage control tactics?
