my twitterverse

I like twittering very much on first place because it brings a lot of inspiration and information to me.
Last week I thought about collecting my favorite tweets – here they are:

Tim and I recently had an inspiring discussion on the idea of translating actions to thoughts – which sometimes is hard to do. This one is about making thoughts stick:
@tim_hurson: If you don’t express your thoughts, they disappear. We remember things by telling their stories.

Another quote I liked reminds me of limitations which often emerge from within
RT @jgodfrey @stevepavlina : As you go through your day, notice how often you attach labels to your experiences. Consider how that limits you.

Some management mistakes are so common that you can actually compile them into a list. If you’re a manager struggling to find out why your team is dysfunctional, take a look at the behaviors in this list and see if any look familiar.

Knowledgemangement: a collection of links
@changekomm RT @zcope Die Top20 Wissensmanagement-Links von Simon Dueckert great source

Hash tags are a powerful tool – if you know how to use them. An Introduction:
RT @wallybock RT @markshaw: HOW TO: Get the Most Out of Twitter #Hashtags:

This is a link you should take some time. It contains a videocast of a discussion of e-learning tools. I find it very interesting as it reflects some behavioral changes in enterprises you should consider working as a consultant.

Another “huge” resource – a master thesis you might consider to read
RT @klauseck Culture & "Wikibility" of Innovation Oriented Workplaces Nr.4 #pdf (via @Daimler_BI)

Working with open space technologies? Here is a free eBook you might want to bookmark

I just read this on twitter

Luck is all about being open to opportunities beyond situation as it presents itself. Are you lucky in life?

Think it has a lot to do with managing projects. So what about the opportunities, your recent project opens up to you?
