Have you ever heard that we should keep things professionally? Have you ever struggled to concentrate on your work while private matters constantly distract you? Have you ever felt guilty of not being able to give 100%? Welcome to the club! You are not alone! Let me take you on a journey of my personal struggles with life, the universe and everything and how I think I manage to somehow cope with everyday life while trying to be as productive at work as possible. It might not be your story. But you might realize that you are not alone...

Awesome and very personal talk.

A beautiful, courageous and very personal talk.

The setting of "this is how I handled it, it might not be the best for you" is something I really love in a talk.
For me, more talks should be about personal experiences and solutions, instead of "this is how you should do X".

Thank you for opening up, Andreas. It's good to hear that opening up is not a bad thing.

Amazing talk with Andreas sharing so much of his personal story, telling us how he dealt with incredibly difficult obstacles that life unexpectedly threw in his path. He manages to take us from those difficulties to his positive experiences opening up about these obstacles to people around him. Being vulnerable allowed those people to show support and understanding - being vulnerable, scary as it might be, can be such a good thing. And this message resonated deeply: after the talk we were all immediately inspired to dare to share with others in chat, directly demonstrating the beneficial effects of daring to be vulnerable. So thank you Andreas!

This talk was mind blowing, including the message given. Lots of respect for finding a way to share your personal experience.

What an impressive talk. It's topics like this that we should be more open about but a lot of people still don't. As such it is very brave to do a talk like this. Thank you for being so open and sharing. You are an example to everyone.
