2 virgins, wear something blue, wear a present, something granted, something yours

I am amazed by the enormous amount of things that goes into a wedding. Today I discovered that, at least here in italy, a woman should have 2 virgins make up her bed, and she should also wear something blue and a few other things. Very superstitious, isn’t it? In part I think that’s too […]

tecnology is for everyone, but it’s up to us to make it valuable

Today I listened an old woman talking to a girl about how she use the ipad to translate and talk with international clients. But she didn’t have a smartphone because it was too complex. Technology isn’t about power, it’s about simplicity. If it simplify your life then by all means use it.

the face your friends only know

There are faces we share only with our deepest friends. The stories of our lives. A friend knows it and has saw through them not in a judging way, but in a more clement and lovely “I know you” way. Few days ago my boss dearest friend was in town and he was such a […]

if you can describe it, you can code it

Today I was helping a student learning how to code, and I told him to describe what he wanted to do. once he finished, I replied to him: “Good. If you can describe it to someone, you can code it”, and in fact that’s true. Often we code without thinking about what the code does. […]

These days we are searching for a new home and it seems so difficult. not finding it, but finding the right balance between place, amenities, commodities.

the one thing I’ve learned from starting a business is that competition is not the way to go

I sell deodorants as a side job, and I mostly sell it to stores, physical or online stores. I’ve see many different people, people who didn’t pay for so little, people who were always anxious to get the products, people who would weight them. But to me, competition has been the thing that struck me […]

why do we jump instead of dancing, while we are in a disco?

If you are in a disco club chances are you’ll see some skilled people dancing, making sensual moves. They are engaging and they sure keep your attention up. Then, on the other side, you might also see a small group of people jumping on the same music/song. Why we do this? Jumping, at least for […]

the devil in you

The devil in you says that you should catch the moment. It says that you have all the good reasons to do this. The devil in you says that you’re right, that you should be following your heart. The devil in you uses warm words to describe a dark thought. It calms you by using […]

through trial and error

Some experiences can only be done through trial and error, by trying and failing. We might not even succeed, but we must try, even if we are tempted by the whole system.  The hard part is to stay true to yourself at times when it’s more convenient to align with other people thoughts. Keep your […]
