Stimulus: Optimistic in the new year


Dear Customer,

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. Poet prince Goethe knew it, and it is still valid today. Many things remain lying around because one is not quite sure. "One should" is the grave of many ideas. Vector Consulting accompanies you in your changes. Read the trends from our customer survey here and plan today the Vector Forum on June 25 on the current topic "Competitive Engineering". Looking forward to your feedback!

Yours, Dr. Christof Ebert
Managing director of Vector Consulting Services
Passion. Partner. Value.

One trend is sure to be in for 2020: Cybersecurity. As a market leader, Vector will set the course, from security tools to the efficient application of current standards. What are the first experiences with the introduction of ISO 21434 and UN-ECE? How can excessive costs of security be limited? What is actually good enough? Read our overview of security along the lifecycle with very practical "hacks"...

Stimulus: Optimistic in the new year

Problem or solution? An optimist sees more solutions and is more full of life. When you think about problems, the brain releases stress hormones. When we think positive thoughts, it rewards us with feel-good hormones. Difficult? That would be negative thinking now :). You can learn optimism. For example, laughing. Surround yourself with positive people. Write down positive thoughts, ideas and plans, and if it gets really difficult, deal with it in a structured way: Paint or describe the situation on a piece of paper. This organizes your thoughts, and you gain clarity and find better solutions than in diffuse brooding. And for thought jugglers: brain jogging has been proven to promote solution orientation and resilience. Try your hand at tricky thinking tasks as often as possible. The next Sudoku is waiting.
