Never Make a Promise You Can’t Keep

A couple of years ago I was working on an important report  regarding  a big and successful social media campaign that my boss was supposed to present to the client as soon as I finished it. Naturally, my boss was really eager to show the client our great work – and kept on asking me ...

What’s a “Dumb Phone”?

Screenshot 2014-06-27 23.41.48

I got my first smartphone in 1996. I was 13 years old and felt like the coolest guy on planet Earth. It was a Nokia Communicator 9000 and it was so heavy and clunky that I needed a backpack to carry it with me. A lot has changed, these days I use a Nokia as ...

Read this book: The Year Without Pants

YWP-COVER-FINAL

This summer I finally got to read some books and this was one of my favorites. The Year Without Pants is a book about one man’s peek into the WordPress.com community. How they work, how they think and what their culture is like. It’s also about some interesting thoughts about the future of work.

Thoughts From My Annual Month of Unplugging

yIdlmSvfSZCyGkCkLt0P_lucaslof_2

So I’m back after a month offline. It was spent with my loved ones, enjoying life and focusing on living – not documenting. This has been my best vacation so far, and a lot of it has to do with me unplugging from my digital self. Let me explain.

More sleep, and fewer hours at the office

WyVMN1W6Tves4NUkaXwh_14

I used to be that guy who sat up all night coding, reading and socializing on the web. I was that kind of guy who could wake up with my nose stuck flat on my keyboard with a slice of pizza and a can of Cola next to me. I used to be proud that ...

Unplugged

Screenshot 2014-06-27 23.41.48

July equals time to unplug and spending quality time with my loved ones. Last year I bought a dumb phone for my summer vacation. It can only receive texts and calls – and doesn’t even have a color screen. The battery lasts around 11(!) days. It’s perfect when you need to recharge and reflect. I ...

The 20-year-old-CEO

I’m so fortunate that a part of my job is traveling around, meeting interesting people, and talking at conferences all over Europe. One of my favorite things is spending some extra time and energy on really getting to know some of the people I meet every time. During my recent trip to the Netherlands (or ...

Leadership is a choice, it is not a rank.

What makes a great leader? Management theorist Simon Sinek suggests, it’s someone who makes their employees feel secure, who draws staffers into a circle of trust. But creating trust and safety — especially in an uneven economy — means taking on big responsibility. I could not agree more. I highly recommend to take the time ...

Did you loose your focus? I found mine.

WyVMN1W6Tves4NUkaXwh_14

The key to success is to be able to focus. If you can stay focused over time, you’ll get more stuff done. With focus you get more productive, you create a space where you can reflect and make important decisions on what to do, and when — instead of letting your inbox and the people around you ...

Let your audience be your voice

What’s the number one mistake most brands do in social media? They just want to talk about themselves and topics they care about. That turns out to not be the best way to create a community around your brand.

Kjære Rafiq

Det er vondt å tenke på at du ikke kommer til å lese disse ordene. Jeg skulle ønske du hadde mulighet til å se hvor mye du betydde for meg, og lese alle de fine ordene folk har skrevet om deg i dag. Du var unik Rafiq, på alle måter. Vårt vennskap begynte nesten som ...

My first two weeks with Google Glass in Norway, and why I sold them

20140304_103806_029

I’m fascinated by all the exciting innovation Google has accomplished the last few years, one of the coolest things I’ve been anxious to play with is Google Glass. The glasses with a screen above your eye, and Google Now in your head. It’s not easy to get access to this in Norway. Even Google Norway ...

Be a priest, not a vacuum cleaner salesman

iStock_000022987162Large

Too many marketers in Norway treat their profession as they where vacuum cleaner salesmen, when they should act more like priests. Working with marketing is about making more money, and increasing sales. It has always been that way, but they way you create results has changed drastically through the years. People change, adjust to their ...

Bloggen min i 2013

Thomas Moen

Siden 2009 har jeg oppsummert mine mest leste innlegg hver år. Du kan lese her: 2009, 2010, 2011 og 2012. Denne gangen tenkte jeg å ta det et steg lengere, ved å oppsummere trafikk, innlegg, kilder og kanskje det viktigste – hva vil jeg egentlig med bloggen min? 2013 var året da jeg brukte mindre tid på bloggen ...
