This course is designed to take a critical look at our attitudes and to get to know some learning techniques that can accompany us on our way to growing and help us to bring more quality into our lives. We will discuss some philosophical as well as psychological concepts and also discuss their significance in our lives.
My name is Chris Pimmer,
I am as stated above, a thinker, a writer, a poet, a philosopher, a Taoist and much more.
For 11 years I have studied at the University of Hamburg, Germany, some of my subjects were. Linguistics, Economics (BWL), Psychology, Music Science and Computer Programming.
I speak four languages (used to be five, but I lost my french after never using it), Portugues, Spanish, English and of course German.
Since 1990 I play the Piano (Mostly things like Pop, I loveme some Billy Joel). I am also an ok chess player.
Ever since my late teens I have been into reading and learning, but I noticed that often times my learning would work a little different than that of the institutions I studied at.
I have lived and studied in Recife, Brazil for 1 year back in 2006 (at the university ferderal de pernambuco: UFPE), during that time I lived in a martial arts academy, training mostly capoeira. For about 10+ years I also played high performance Basketball. Most recently I spent 6 months living in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, to widen my horizon. I have spent time (3+ weeks) in quite a lot of countries to learn from different teachers and masters in a form of mentorship, things that one does not certificates for, but are applicable in many situations. (Sweden, UK and the USA).
In the past I was Founded a small Record label, where we published a couple Albums and Music Videos (our main artists name is CAZINO) and also helped Co-Founding the first Warehouse Gym in Hamburg. Back when the internet was still relatively new, I taught myself HTML, CSS, PHP as well as graphic design, to create an online presence for small businesses.
For 11 years I have been personally mentoring some young students on many subjects, such as Basketball, thinking, decision making and others and recently I have opened up this mentoring and teaching to a wider audience and with Udemy I hope to be able to connect with many of you, so that we can all learn from each other.
