Weekly Reads – March 28

Spring time is here and quite literally this time. The clocks have changed in Berlin, and while now we are enjoying longer days it still feels like it takes some days to adjust to that one hour change. For this week, the picks are quite varied touching on career topics, bedroom decor and spring mood among others. Enjoy the weekly reads below: 


New one in town. If you love personality tests like Myers-Briggs you will love to hear that there is a new one in town: the Enneagram which gives you a peak into your core emotional needs. Career Contessa claims it’s the new Myers-Briggs so you can take the free version here and share your thoughts on it below.

It’s in the habit. Because good habits give you life, and especially work habits save your life, here are ten career habits to master in your twenties from The Every Girl. If I were to pick three, they would be: stepping out of your comfort zone, learning to give and receive constructive feedback and dressing for the next job.

It’s an art. Learning how to ask smarter questions is such a valuable skill that will always set you apart and add on to your reputation at work. As Carl Sagan would say “There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question.”

Keeping it cozy. Spring is here but winter does not want to let go (at least in Europe), so here are a few simple tips on how to make your bedroom cozy – which makes the cold and rain outside more bearable.

Daydreaming. If you’ve started to plan your summer holidays, here is some inspo with 10 trips to add to your bucket list from The Every Girl. I am definitely checking the list out and trying to squeeze something into the summer holidays.

Spring mood. This Ann Taylor floral dress is all you need for spring – ehem, once the sun is fully out though.

What I listen to.  Podcasts are a great way of learning new thing or staying up to date. I have not been listening to podcasts regularly for too long, I maybe started 3-4 months back, but my two favourite podcasts that I pretty much always listen to are The Tim Ferris Show and Freakonomics. If you are looking for something to listen to on your commute to work, I can definitely recommend them. Here are also six other podcasts from that you can check out and add to your list.
