failure is not an option

Read any self help book, watch any motivation video, read inspiring biographies and you’ll soon discover a trait among those people. They didn’t surrender. Failure, for them, was not a viable solution. They couldn’t accept it, so they continued their work until it made a difference. It’s normal to admire such dedication, to be mesmerized […]

last in, first listened

That’s a sad truth, we’re more likely to listening to a new person we don’t know very much than an old friend. His/her advices might be more well received than our friends, but why is that? It’s not that the friend becomes instantly useless.But we are less inclined to listen to him. There’s prejudice, we […]

shiny and pricey doesn’t equate quality

I’ve been to pitti fragrance today, and one thing I learned is that we can be easily fooled. Fooled by packaging, fooled by stories and narrations, fooled by nice people.  Shiny things, pricey things, don’t always mean quality. They some times show a great skill (marketing) but hide a mediocre product.  To have success, you […]

never tell your goals, on keeping your words

I don’t consider myself successful in the way most people think. I’m not rich, not famous, nothing of these things. Yet I do think that I succeded in learning such many things. Learning to sing from zero, to build up some basic muscles, to run, to jump rope, to talk, to write, to inspire even […]

They remove your energy one brick at a time, making you unable to change. Think about a work you don’t […]

the first letter I wrote

My first love letter was handwritten. I wrote it to a girl I liked when I was a child.  Each and every morning we would take the same train to get to school. She was blonde, beautiful. I didn’t knew her, I didn’t knew where she was headed to, and I was shy. I decided […]

I was trying to unscrew something from my balcony. I couldn’t do it. I tried for days and nothing. It seemed stuck. Used wd40 on the screw before trying to turn it but it stuck. I needed someone strong to keep it blocket while I was pushing so that I could unscrew correctly. I managed […]
