Daniel Agger is back

He’s back

Oh what a day. He’s back. Daniel Agger is back in Brøndby IF. Nobody had expected this right now. Maybe in two or three years from now but not for this season. He have had a lot of offers from international clubs but he chooses Brøndby and probably also his health and the fact that he is going to play every time which also can give him a longer career on the national team since the Danish Superliga ain’t that tough.

As hard as it is to understand that he’s back I have say I think it is about loyalty and about him hoping that Brøndby once again can become the huge Scandinavian club that it was years back. He want to be able to raise the club and he have the health to do that now and not in a few years from now. You gotta respect that loyalty especially in modern football. You don’t see that every day.

Oh, yes – he’s back.

Danish English & motivation

I like to build stuff. I like to start up projects and businesses from the ground and see things grow bigger. Not even big more just see things get started and in one way or and other succeed. On the contrary I have very little respect for the opposite. People destroying . Especially when some people thinks it is okay to destroy something other people have used their time building. WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?

I don’t get it. How come some people thinks that is okay?

I got hacked. This site included. And when that happens it is very hard for me to get myself together and get it fixed. I hate it. I hate rebuilding. That so demotivating. I rather like to write new articles or even pay my bills. I get filled with anger against these people let them self in to my life, hiding and not even giving me a chance to front them.

Well, I’M BACK. As always I get back. I don’t know how but I do. I never stop. I think it is a good thing being entrepreneur. And in this case it gave me the chance to reconsider why I’m writing a blog. How come that I spend the time writing these articles. Especially cause my goal ain’t that other people should read them. It ain’t and probably never will be.

So, I write for my one sake. I write cause I like to do it. Cause I get my opinion and experiences out there. And it doesn’t matter that there is no receiver. So why write in English. Why not Danish. I’ve considered that. Especially cause I’m loosing a lot of Danish topics that would be stupid to write about in English. My conclusion when I though I’ve lost everything was clear. I’ll start all over and that should be in Danish. It’s my mother tongue and comes way more natural to me.

Then I found out I still got an intact database and all my old articles so I thought hey, that’s pretty cool writing in English. Cause if somebody in Indonesia should find my site interesting he or she can read it. Bonus, I still got to use my English and that ain’t so bad in a global world.

So conclusion is that I’m back, still in English but now I know why. Because I like to do it. That’s it. And if somebody out there is reading along – be my guest.

NB: I know. You should always keep a copy of your site. Sorry, I got other things to do than constantly copying my sites – but now it’s done including all of my other sites.

Syrian war

Politicians doing nothing.

Why become a politician? The obvious answer must be to change things. Because you have an opinion and you believe that your opinion is the right one that actually can change the world whether is locally or more global. If that is true my next question is – why do I see so little action and so many analyses and committees?

An examples:
The war in Syria makes young Danes, and other nationalities, go to war in Syria. This week ex-politician Naser Khader yield load to wake up the politicians to do something about it. The responsible minister told the press “That the government take this very serious, have made some actions and that they are waiting for a committee to come with recommendations right after the summer holiday. (that is in at least three months from now)”

WHAT!!! How come all decisions have to be analysed by some external specialist? How come no politician can take action, talk to our neighbours in Europe (France, Holland etc. have experience with this), make a decision and save life. How come do they have to wait for a committee to make there recommendations while young people is being killed. Come on – you got the responsibility to do something. Take action.

Lillesko.dk - front page

Updating lillesko.dk

Okay, well, yes, I know, it is time to update lillesko.dk – our website selling small sized shoes for women with small feet. Last year was the year off work and focus on specific areas and one of those areas wasn’t Lillesko. I must admit that the website was on hold. If we sold a pair we shipped it but that’s it. We didn’t put up new products, do any marketing etc.

Now times have changes and it is time to focus on Lillesko again. I’ve just implemented a free one-page-checkout from IWD Extensions. This is something I wanted for a long time as I find the default solution in Magento a bit unhandy. Checking out of a shop should be easy and fast and not be made in several steps. So far it looks good.

Next is moving the hosting to a dedicated Magento hosting site, magentohotel.dk, including adding a shipping extension for the Danish post office. Moving the site is due to the dedication and especially back-ups they provide and a hope for a faster hosting while the extension hopefully will make it easier to ship, including labeling and Track&trace, and thereby make this part of the business a walk in the park. This should have been done a long time ago but now we are looking forward and the transaction has started.

Hard work

What is hard work?

That is in many ways what you could call a good question. Normally I would say that struggling at your job doing the best you can, would be hard work. Often I actually feel that if a job haven’t been a bit unfunny, hard, tough, frustrating, uninspiring and just boring then it haven’t been hard work. If things are to funny its more a hobby.

That actually conflicts with my general opinion about having a job. It should be fun. If it ain’t fun get a new job. At the same time I constantly find my self doing work that ain’t funny. That ain’t inspiring. Why? Because I have a goal and that goal is more important than anything else. Also more important than having fun doing my job. The goal is to me the key to success. With no goal you don’t have a direction and you will not know where to end up.

So the goal sometimes, or should I say often, makes me put aside my philosophy about having fun at the job. Over and over again, especially being an entrepreneur, there is a new boring task coming up. It have to be solved because it’s your business but you loose some of the enthusiasm.

Lesson? Well, I admit. Sometimes I should be better at outsourcing some of the tasks even though it costs a bit of money and than focus on what I do best and what I like to do. That being said there is nothing more fulfilling than succeeding after hard work – you now the boring kind.
