Let’s meet at Brunswick’s Christmas Market!

The next After Work Stammtisch (No. 117) is going to take place on the first Tuesday in December 2023 – 5th December 2023. Following „the same procedure as every year“ our venue is in front of the Ferris wheel at 7:00 pm. After walking around Brunswick’s Christmas Market in small groups, we will all meet again in front of the Ferris wheel to talk about what exciting items one might have bought and what one has planned to do for Christmas this year. They have the best mulled beer right in front of our meeting place as well as tasty children´s punch which is basically non-alchoholic mulled beer, so … CHEERS! … till round about 8:30 pm.

same time, same place,

Fear Furcht
Self-doubt Selbstzweifel
Negative people Negative Menschen
Perfectionism Perfektionismus
Procrastination Prokrastination
Lack of focus Mangelnder Fokus
Limited beliefs Begrenzte Überzeugungen
Comfort zone Komfortzone
Comparison Gegenüberstellung
Lack of action Untätigkeit
