Similarly to last year, I will not be writing a summary of 2019. Sharing less over the year has been surprisingly liberating. For me, it has forced more deliberate attention to a few selected things instead. My writing, for instance.
That being said, I do often get asked what I do all day. I tend to answer “surprisingly little” which is somewhat correct but mostly an unexpected way of answering an expected question.
A more serious answer would be that I’m an independent advisor and analyst. Throughout 2019, I’ve worked with companies in Canada, China, Denmark, England, Germany, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United States. I’m very grateful for having the opportunity to have such a varied day to day life.
I have also written a little more often – and longer – than before. Here’s a summary of the articles I wrote this year:
Telecom & Media
- The Kids App Market Part 1: A Strategic Overview
- The Kids App Market Part 2: Q&A
- The Kids App Market Part 3: A Wish List
- In defense of screen time
Strategy & Business
- The Strategy Tax
- Two Types of Strategy Tax
- The Curse of the Modus Operandi
- Startups and Unions
- Sans-serifs as comfort
