Adventure reporter life: about fortune knight, politicians and gurus

The world of media seems to spin faster than the globe. Daily news, rapid developments, crazy stories, incredible adventures – reporters must always be up to date, recognize connections and report about our complicated world in a way that everyone understands. They are the translators of the cosmos; reporters are there where everything is compressed, where time shoots through a needle’s eye and where the adventure of the future begins. Also, in the professional context and in times of digitalization, entrepreneurs and employees have to face new challenges again and again and react flexibly and quickly. In his stirring lecture, reporter Kruse shows how to stay true to oneself and give one’s best.

Timm Kruse has lived a classic reporter life for 25 years. He was on all continents, interviews Kohl and Gorbatschow, sat in a taxi with Eric Burdon, experienced Barbara Schöneberger wildly and privately, had some drinks with Matthias Opdenhövel and was the first to learn from Bastian Schweinsteiger that he will leave FC Bayern Munich. He experienced the tsunami, reported about 9/11 and collected adventurous stories from all over the world – hair-raising, sad as death, earth-shattering.

As a reporter he has learned that flexibility is the basis of a successful life. To endure a fast-paced life, to grab opportunities at lightning speed and challenge happiness. Making decisions without thinking, mastering challenges and adventures and reaching your goal at the end: delivering a TV report on time, professionally, edge-sewn and full of power and emotion, so that if can be watched by millions of viewers – understandable, rousing, moving.

In his gripping lectures, reporter Timm Kruse tells of dazzling, gruesome and absurd worlds that otherwise do not show themselves to the viewer. He has looked behind the scenes of power recognized the sometimes-abstruse laws of media and learned what it means to be incorruptible. As a reporter, he never bent, never adapted, and finally took a path that wasn’t the best for his career, but the best for his life.

Work-life-balance: always on the move and yet at home

Why are we working so hard? When is it enough with our performance? How fat do our car, our house and our debaucheries still have to get? What is the right work-life balance for us?

Everyone dreams of living the perfect version of their life, the best work-life-balance – but how does that work

The 40-Day challenge - be your hero

40 is the magic number that can change your life. If you don’t eat sugar, smoke or drink alcohol for 40 days as a challenge, your can easily do without these addictive substances afterwards. Those who have discipline and go jogging for 40 days will never want to live without sport again. Those who motivate themselves for 40 days to complete unpleasant tasks at work fist will certainly not have to put off disturbing matters for so long in the future. Willpower and discipline become habits – and efficiency and motivation increase equally in the professional and private context.

Roadtrip with Guru

Who is willing to dare something new and only question their own motivation? Not only to go on holiday in a new country. Not to move to a new city. Not to try a new partner, a new job, a new sport, different food or alternative medicine? These are all changes that take play within the framework of the old life. But nothing is really new.
