This is how I carry on when every bit of me wants to give up

This is how I carry on when every bit of me wants to give up

When every muscle in my body is tired and every movement is painful, when every thought is defeating and my mind is screaming for me to stop there is only one thing for me to do: answer a simple question. But before I get to that question I would like to talk about something else. I was just describing an experience in my life when I was on the verge of defeat, overwhelmed by my thoughts about giving up. It was getting quite an interesting story I must say. But I decided to select the story and press the ‘delete’ button. Why? I...

How to become a successful singer when you can’t sing

How to become a successful singer when you can’t sing

At Marbles we-love-to-sing. We sing when we drive to work on our bikes, we sing when we get ourselves a cup of tea, we sing after we’ve stepped outside to enjoy a breath of fresh air in our breaks. To sum all our moments of expressing our voices with the world up: we sing when we play! We play all day long… yet, singing is not appropriate when you are having a conversation with someone, nor is it friendly to start singing when you’re at a funeral of your lovers grandmum and most of all singing is not done when you can’t...

How to have a good time with scammers on the Internet

I’ve been advertising on several online marketplaces lately in order to sell my car. And so far I’ve received quite a few mails of people doing me an offer. Most of them are such low offers that they can’t even be considered for getting the front tires. But next to all those worthless offers, there are some interesting and somewhat valuable offers I have received. And I would like to take this opportunity to share one of them in specific with you. I received this mail: Beste Mister Tom, is this car still available for sale? To which I...

This is what the thief stealing away your smiles looks like

Can you recall the last time you were completely happy, in peace, shining like a child? Can you tell me how you felt, what you were doing and what you were thinking about? I can. The last time I felt completely happy and in peace, the last time I was shining like a child, was 2 minutes ago. I felt warm, bright and light. I was staring outside to all the cars that drive past our office and I was thinking about the work I’ve done so far today. Oh, and there was this one thing that also happened… I smiled. And that smile seemed to confirm...

Waking up Thor and his mates

Waking up Thor and his mates

I open the door and am welcomed by the scent of new, world-class leather and wood. As I gently slide into the drivers seat I look around me. My eyes follow the lining of the shiny black trim that subtly covers parts of the dashboard and I observe the little clock in the middle of the dashboard. It’s working perfectly. I smile. I’m walking around with a watch without arrows on my wrist for over a year, so I will have to get used to this. I close the door and enjoy the soft touch of the alcantara on the door cover and steering wheel. There...

7 roadblocks we have encountered on the journey of our dreams

I remember us sitting in the living room. All three in upper excitement about attending the first company meeting. It’s almost a year ago, May 2012: the start of Marbles. Well, it wasn’t Marbles back then, since nobody had come up with that name yet. But it was, what I like to call, the very beginning of Marbles, the start of our own company. To become successful in living my dreams, I believed to need two things; the ambition to be successful and the guts to follow my heart. Enough of these two and I would be ensured of a short, flawless...
