Changing the life we live

Changing the life we live

I have not been blogging a lot over the past few weeks unfortunately. The reason for this inactivity is that a pretty significant life change has preoccupied me over the past weeks.

We will be moving back to Germany during the course of December. This move has been planned very carefully and both my wife and myself are really looking forward to this new challenge in 2011.

So will anything change here on my blog?

The clear answer is NO. Quite the opposite really. This blog has seen a huge rise in popularity and in terms of visitors during the course of 2010. During 2011 I will continue to blog on a regular basis about CSR, Sustainability and Social Media. And I have immensely enjoyed picking up the pace with more regular and in-depth CSR / Sustainability blog posts during 2010 and I will not stop with this in 2011.

The move back to my home country will actually be a good move in terms of my business as well. I will continue to expand my websites and still work as a consultant for my regular and new clients. All in all will this be a really good next step in our view.

So in effect only two major elements will change: 1) The location from where I am doing my work and 2) the level of support we can give to and receive from our families back in Germany.

2010 has been a very eventful year, personally and professionally. All events and consequences this year showed us that we needed to change something in our life. And this is what we are doing…..changing our life’s for the better. One small and bigger step at a time.

How has 2010 changed your life? Have you or will you change something important as a consequence of events in 2010?

  1. fabian, I am sure that wherever you are, you will continue to be a force for good and an active member of our online community of sustainability professionals.

  2. Just a quick note to say it's been a real privilege being in such close proximity, able to chat and pamper the dogs. Take care and keep in touch.

  3. Thanks Elaine and Chris for your kind words. And yes if anyone is around in Duesseldorf, Germany during 2011 please get in touch so that we can meet up.

    Our new life will be full of new opportunities and I will share some of the most interesting ones here on my blog and try to provide a unique perspective on CSR / Sustainability topics from across the globe.

  4. My girlfriends parents actually live quite close to Dusseldorf, I'll definitely keep you in mind the next time I pass by Germany.

  5. Fabian – I wish you the best of luck with your move and new start.

    2010 has also been a very eventful year for me, full of changes both personal and professional. The London Marathon in April (which I completed in 4 hours 20 minutes) was definitely the most challenging! But most exciting has been the move to a new job at CR Consultancy Lumina.

    I look forward to engaging with you and other professionals in 2011 over the challenges and opportunities of working in CSR!

    1. Thank you so much fro your kind words Beth. 2010 has indeed been a very eventful year. Good and bad.
      I too wish you all the best for 2011 and I am looking forward to reading your / Lumina's contributions to the CSR / Sustainability debate.


  6. Hi Fabian,

    Viel Glück und Erfolg in Deutschland. Ich kann dir nur zu gut nachempfinden, wie schön und wichtig es ist, näher an der Familie und dem dazugehörigen Support-Netz zu leben. Dann hoffe ich, daß alles Erhoffte im Heimatland zutreffen wird und du und deine Frau euch bald schon wieder heimisch fühlt.

    Viele Grüße (auch vom Leap Team),
    Cathrin
