It's no secret that cars need to become more eco-friendly, even though the vast population still requests the diesel/fuel types. So I always love to see small players coming up with new automotive solutions - just like this cutie (may I say?) by Microlino. It is based on the iconic 50s Italian design for the Isetta and reduced to the simple functions you need, well, for driving a car. (via)
If you are thinking about working more locally independent ("remote") -- just like me! -- this collection of online tools and software is very handy to get you organized and on the road!
I took the previous quote from this article by Jocelyn K. Glei and wanted to share it in its entirety, because it tells you why you love-hate your to-do list so much. We are all suckers for progress, but often it goes unnoticed. Jocelyn gives some handy tipps on how to realize those better.
P.S. You should read her newsletter, too. Love it.

This piece in the wonderful conscious online mag & community tbd. (hey, like-minded partner!) rightfully questions the idea, if the employment models created in the industrial revolution era (8 hour shifts) are still fitting our modern lives. I strongly believe that globalization, taking care of oneself, technology and seeking for purpose call for challenging these concepts and opening the possibilities of employment situations. Applause to everyone brave enough to try out new concepts.
Don't just trash unused items. Here is a list of things you can do instead to get rid of them (in German, with focus on Berlin activities).
Madame Moneypenny is one of the best resources when it comes to learning about managing your finances. I've been following her since she started her blog and would account her for triggering my now almost geekiness about financial topics (I used to so hate this). I can only recommend reading and starting to take care of your assets. Now. (Website in German)
Many companies are experimenting with less working hours and more time for recreation, as this Thrive Global article details. Maybe they'll fail in some concepts, but at least they challenge the unhealthy status quo of most companies.
P.S. BTW I love the Thrive Global podcast by Arianna Huffington! The last episode with Glennon Doyle Melton and her dedication to recover from addiction and become successful is so good.
