none of my business

You get this all the time: At work someone writes you an email with a question that’s not your field of competence. Well, you might know that Pete is the person who’s gonna help him, or you might know that’s better to ask John, but either way you decide to just say “Sorry, I’m not […]

listening to the world

I was coming back to the hotel today from work. The road to the hotel here in Milan is a long street with 2 lines of trees in the center and many high building on the sides. I was walking and I started watching the surroundings. I remember a girl using a small wood stick […]

the road to trying and building a product

To create a good product you need to try. First, try the product. There’s no way you can build a good product without trying it first. Be the user, use it, solve it your own problems until you are fully satisfied with the solution. Keep it real, be honest with yourself. Secondly, try harder, fail […]

the right words

There always comes a time when we need to choose words. To wisely line them up in a meaningful way, something worth the way. It might be the wedding of a friend, a job request, or a love declaration, in all these cases some of the best words are often our struggle, the story to […]

Even if you are paying for a service the human you pay to deserves respect. No matter how much you pay, he or she deserve to be threated like a human being. Using money to pay for a service doesn’t hide all the human interactions and although it’s easy to run away from them that’s […]

planning and doing

Doing requires will, focus and dedication, it requires putting yourself on the line, while planning only requires words. Planning is required, but it’s not enough.

why fear allows only fear as “permitted” emotion

Few days ago I thought about love, yes, that love. That kind of human behaviour that empowers people, that allow us to change ourself, to do something we would never thought possible. Love as a way of be grateful, love as a way to dedicate your whole life to another person, love that’s deep and […]

listen to the customers or don’t ask

A few days ago I went to a sushi restaurant in Arezzo, a good place named Sushi Bar (genius name, right?). It’s a nice restaurant in the center of the city, owned by some Japanese or Chinese (sorry, can’t distinguish) girl with italian waitresses. They usually serve good food and sushi, but last time the […]

the harsh truth about harsh truths

Lately Hacker News has added some rules to their guidelines regarding the “gratuitous negativity”. We’ve all been there, a friend asks for our opinion on a subject of his/her interest, and we give the harsh truth. Too harsh, probably. The idea won’t work It’s horrible I can’t even watch it Seriously? etc… are just a […]
