My Best Of 2019
"Negotiating the Impossible: How to Break Deadlocks and Resolve Ugly Conflicts" by Deepak Malhotra
it is an incredible masterpiece written by a Harvard professor with a long record of field experience in negotiations. The book is full of hands-on recommendations that are backed up by examples from all kinds of industries and organizations. I highly recommend this book both for private and working life.https://www.amazon.de/dp/1523095482/

Life hack of the yearMy morning routine that contains: a breathing session according to the Wim Hof method, then a set of exercises (100 pushups, abs, stretching...) and a cold shower. It takes approximately 30 minutes and sets me up for the whole day. It had an incredible impact on my life. I skipped it only a few times and felt like a potato bag those days.
Gadget of the year
Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500. It comes with OCR software. I completely switched to a digital (home) office - any paper coming through the front door (invoices, notifications, advertisement if relevant) is scanned and OCR'ed using this device and then stored in Dropbox (paid). I also scanned in old paper folders. Result? My whole documents are perfectly organized, I find anything within seconds and I gained a couple of free shelves. Amazing!https://www.digitec.ch/de/s1/product/fujitsu-scansnap-ix1500-scanner-9864063
