My Personal Review of 2015

Personal Review Tim Herbig 2015
So, it’s that time of the year again. Here’s my personal chronological reflection of 2015.
  • I met Robert and improved my road cycling capabilities like…a lot since then! Not only did I get thereby access to another way to clear my mind after work, it also brought Friedrich, Robert and myself closer together and introduced me to a bunch of cool people. Thanks for many awesome rides and moments this year!
  • I learned to value a daily commute on two wheels thanks to my shiny new Schindelhauer.
  • Ludwig and I shipped version 2 of Timelog with a great launch on Product Hunt and can’t believe that we’ve already more than 1.200 registered users on it.
  • I wrote and published a Launch Checklist for Product Hunt which turned out to be my most successful side project (financially) yet.
  • We visited Helsinki and had an awesome time checking out the city by bike to explore great food and coffee.
  • Piet and I launched Git2Go and are constantly learning a ton about scaling a app of our own with huge potential. I thereby also learned a lot about app icon design and how to be productive with Git.
  • I made a great step as a product manager through our ACE format at XING regarding stakeholder alignment.
  • I re-started Productish thanks to my new permanent co-host Tim and am incredibly happy about the discussions we have on air.
  • Arne, Marc, Timo and myself hosted another round of Product Tank Hamburg events which connected us with many cool new product people.
  • I had the pleasure of completing my first product discovery with Nikkel and learned quite a lot about impact mapping, asking the right questions, (better) user interviews and product thinking.
  • I had my most beautiful vacation within Germany in St. Peter Ording staying at the Zweite Heimat residence.
  • I had to (internally) say goodbye to 2 great leaders at my day job. Thanks for everything, Patrick & Moritz!
  • I finally unified herbigt.com and my blog sub-domain on one page and techology thanks to Jens. I also used the opportunity for a fresh coat of paint and can’t wait to write more again in 2016.

See you in 2016 – I think it’s gonna be awesome!
