I’m Fabio Strässle, a Swiss Senior Product Manager on the move.
I studied Business Innovation at HSG St.Gallen and worked in consulting and product development projects for energy supplier and insurance companies.
I moved to Cologne to build a platform for online coaching education at Greator.
I love exploring new perspectives through reading, learning, travelling, self-experimenting, and connecting with great people.
If you’re one of those, feel free to reach out via email.
What I’m Doing Now
Updated August 4th, 2023, from my temporary home in Grenoble, France.
‘Where to Live’ Experiment
Where we live is often determined by external circumstances, where we were born, went to school, got a job… My girlfriend and I wanted to consciously explore what type of place we want to live in. We selected 3 places to live in for 3 months with different characteristics. In the end we hopefully have a clear understanding of what our ideal place should be.
Training my Coding Skills
I got frustrated at my limited understanding and overreliance on developers. So I learned Ruby and can now build my own apps. Now I want to train this skill to competence.
Build a Latticework of Mental Models
Mental models are like frameworks or concepts that help you understand and act in the world.
“Well, the first rule is that you can’t really know anything if you just remember isolated facts and try to bang ‘em back. If the facts don’t hang together on a latticework of theory, you don’t have them in a usable form. You’ve got to have mental models in your head. And you’ve got to array your experience, both vicarious and direct, on this latticework of models.” ― Charlie Munger
All this means is that I’m learning more structured and broadly than I usually do and take extensive notes.
