Create Your Grand Tour of the Decade

As you are well aware, the year 2020 is rapidly approaching. Instead of a New Year resolution, consider embarking on your own Grand Tour of the Decade. Remember that it is easy to over-estimate what we can do in a day. Conversely, it is easy to under-estimate what we can achieve in a decade. The following five tips will help you prepare your launch into a new decade.

Digital metalworking

Industry 4.0 is one of the buzzwords of the 21st century. In South Tyrol, the future of industrial manufacturing is already firmly established. While committed to the long tradition of metalworking, the dynamically evolving family enterprise WF Mechanik GmbH uses the latest digital technologies, including advanced online platforms where customers can order parts in a fully automated process. All geared towards further growth, the company has just bought a new plot of land to expand its production and logistics capacities.

A new car for Africa

When it comes to ordering a new car, everyone can rely on Transautomobile. From diplomats and businessmen who relocate abroad for work for long or short periods, as well as private customers from all continents. The Belgian company TRANSAUTOMOBILE supplies and exports all models and brands of vehicles: pickup trucks as well as SUVs, buses, trucks and special vehicles.

An established name in new technologies

Industry 4.0 and automation are causing the demand for electronic components to skyrocket. As a result, old-established companies and newcomers alike are vying for the top positions in the computer market. One of the latter is MSC Technologies Systems GmbH in Freiburg, Germany. The site has a history stretching back more than 120 years and is now in the hands of the American company Avnet, operating now under the Avnet Integrated brand.

Be the one who makes your industry sustainable

We have all seen the news report images of plastic piling up along beaches, and many different solutions have been attempted to incentivise its cleanup. This has often taken the form of plastic recycling schemes, but more recently, there have been attempts to harness market forces to solve the problem. Norwegian company Infinitum AS is one of the most successful models of this kind of enterprise, and now, under the leadership of Managing Director Kjell Olav A. Maldum, it is undertaking an ambitious expansion strategy.

Colouring fashion

Without colour, the world would be a very drab place. Members of the Italian company Tintoria Emiliana s.r.l., a specialist in the art of dyeing high-value clothing, certainly thinks so. Founded in the post-war era when dyeing clothes to extend their lifespan was a necessity, today the firm works on confectioned garments for the highly demanding fashion labels.

Streamlining office supply solutions

Huge changes are afoot at office supplies specialist Staples Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG. Its holding company, Staples Solutions in Amsterdam, recently announced the sale of the German retail stores and online business, leaving the company free to focus exclusively on the complex and demanding wholesale B2B contract market.

Le Fer à Cheval

Enjoy a luxury retreat with true Alpine hospitality

True, most guests to the Fer à Cheval come for a skiing holiday, combined with a visit to the French luxury resort of Megève. Thanks to its special character, the five-star hotel offers all the amenities you could wish for and is attracting a growing number of people throughout the year. The Fer á Cheval unites the best of both worlds: true Alpine hospitality with natural materials, and inobtrusive luxury in its splendid rooms, suites, restaurants and facilities.

A jet-setter’s paradise

The Amalfi Coast has long been the place to see and be seen on Italy’s long Mediterranean coastline. While the picturesque towns of Amalfi and Positano are the obvious tourist hotspots, there are other lesser-known gems to be discovered. If secluded luxury, stunning views and immaculate service are required, then the boutique hotel Casa Angelina in Praiano deserves not to be missed. Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the azure water, its pristine white walls contrast with the blue of sea and sky to create a perfect oasis of peace.

The power of nature

In an age in which most people now populate a predominantly urban landscape, the desire to reconnect with nature grows ever stronger. From New Age spiritualism to ‘forest bathing’, there are any number of trends encouraging people to disconnect from the trappings of modernity and re-engage with the natural environment. The special power of the forests and lakes of the Hunsrück national park in Germany was what inspired husband and wife team Kathrin and Christian Sersch to build a hotel here. Seezeitlodge Hotel and Spa takes its cues from Celtic traditions for a stay that relaxes all the senses

Closer to home than you think

There is a special feeling that finds us when we step into certain places. Sometimes those places make us feel safe and comfortable, sometimes they remind us of other places we have lived. Often it is a combination, but always, they create a sensation that is universally identifiable: It is the feeling of home. Utleiemegleren AS understands better than anyone the feeling of home and what it means. By bridging the gap between landlords and tenants, Utleiemegleren ensures satisfaction and more meaningful relationships.

Green and viable: why construction companies are building modular

Construction accounts for much of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, but it is ever more necessary to house growing populations. New solutions are needed to reconcile the need to construct with the need to protect the environment. Additionally, inside spaces, especially in areas where land is at a premium, are required to be increasingly flexible, and adaptable to the changing needs of inhabitants. One of the most innovative responses to these challenges has been through investment in modular building techniques. Its forward thinking in this area has propelled Jan Snel to market leader.

The perfect combination of taste, price and nutritional value

A healthy mix of nutrients makes muesli one of the best options for all those who want a delicious, easy-to-prepare breakfast in the morning. In fact, muesli is one of those versatile foods that can be eaten at any time of the day: it is quick, tasty and very healthy. Consumers who value purely natural, qualitatively safe products of high nutritional value appreciate the muesli and porridge varieties made by DETMERS Getreide-Vollwertkost GmbH in Bielefeld, Germany.

Not planning your day or week

If you don’t plan your schedule for the day or the week, you can quickly be overrun by stress. You should definitely take the time to keep track of your to-do list and enter the things you would like to get done. Also write down your appointments and don’t try to keep everything in your head. That just causes stress, and the risk of forgetting something is too great.

Procrastinating

We all have to take care of certain jobs that we don’t feel like doing and that we think won’t bring us further. But stop procrastinating. Your frustration will just increase. Plan time into your weekly schedule for unpopular activities and just get the work done. You will see that you’re relieved afterwards.

Having too many tabs open

Don’t let yourself get distracted by too many open tabs on your computer. Make sure that the only tabs you have open are the ones you need for your current work. Very important: Leave Facebook tabs closed. Otherwise, you’ll be distracted too quickly by notifications.

Using a smartphone

Avoid looking at your smartphone first thing in the morning after waking up. Because as soon as you read your incoming messages, any rest you had is gone for the morning. Start by getting up, getting ready for the day and having something for breakfast. Think about yourself and your goals for the day. Only after that should you take a look at your phone.
