My impact from this experience:

This experience has impacted how I adjust my plans for future steps. First of all, I decided to more enthusiastically, with no regret, implement the 80/20 rule to my professional life and private life, so I don’t get fixed on what I think I know the best. In practice this means that I will spend no more than 80% of my working hours at job-related activities, while 20% of the time left, I will continue to dive into experiences that help me learn, unlearn and explore new viewpoints. This, of course, relates only to my job hours, not private life. Secondly, I came back from Portugal with an enthusiasm for slow, smart collective project work at Cohabitat Foundation using the systems thinking framework and inspirations from the Co-Project. I’ve seen a lot of similarities and differences between these two projects which helped me reflect on the team and organization back home. Finally, I came back with enthusiasm and motivation for working with the integrity of equal social, environmental and financial cost/profit ratio. It’s much easier for me to see in practice and most of all, an argument for, this balance and inclusivity even in the tiniest projects.
