good questions are the key

The more time it passes, the more I’m sure about this: good questions are a turn key for many things. A great question allow people to have a spark in creativity or to go beyond, it can solve problems because of the different point of view inherently included in the question itself. Most of the […]

are you listening to complaints?

There are days when I listen to many complains.  Not that I want to, it just a happens. But what is the value of a complaint if the goal of the complaint is only complaining? Hardly a complaint can be useful. That’s what sound criticism is for. Complaining on the other side is mainly used […]
