the unexpected help

The thrill before a presentation, before a show, is something that cannot be translated in words. Its a spark, a desire, a hope to make it right. When I decided to write a small book I didn’t knew if it was ok, if it was worth it. I did it anyway and now I receive […]

a taste for excellence

Are people addicted to success? Yes they are. But what they are also addicted to is another thing. It’s like when you first shop parfums. You’re clueless. Then you start knowing the brands and buy more expensive stuff. Then you get into the niche market and you discover a whole new world of possibilities. Yes, […]

short form, long form

There are some concepts that require a broader spectrum to be understood. They need to be explained more deeply so that people can understand them.  It’s the limit of the short form.. The short form convey a message, the long form convey a format.

learning isn’t optional

If learning isn’t on your priorities you’ll probably plateauing very soon. Your knowledge can’t expand if it’s not influenced by new thoughts, ideas, people. Let them come. accept learning, add more things and keep what you like. Not in a struggling “I’m not enough” thought, but in a more open minded “what can I take […]

out in the wild

I managed to finish writing a small book that I’ll made opensource later this month (I hope) and so my first idea was to share it with some close friends to see how they reacted. One of them kindly replied with some concerns and what I realized is that I made a big mistake. His […]

difficult conversations

There is one amazing book I always advise reading which is called “Difficult Conversations” of “Douglas Stones”. It’s a book about talking with people when there is a high stake for both. In case you’re angry or you’re discussing a very complex and hot topic. What I learned through that book is that when we […]

how to blame

Don’t blame. End of the story. Nobody likes being blamed upon. If you really want to get an insight of why a person did something wrong ask questions. Why you did that? What was your reasoning? What did you expect? Did you considered that X might happen? This will lead you to understand him/her and […]

show off your vulnerability

“The world doesn’t revolve around you”How many times did I hear those words and yet I didn’t understood them. We have been tricked. Tricked into thinking that a one man band can be possible. Tricked into thinking that we can build a billion dollar social network in a night, tricked into thinking that we can […]

the no complain rule

Complaining is a thing we love doing. We all complain a lot, for work, at home, for whatever futile reason we have the right to complain and we do it without thinking twice. Yet, when people do complain to us, we’re scared, angry, we feel bad.This doesn’t teach us anything, and even if we have […]

the confort of synchronous communication

Did you ever find a collegue tapping on your shoulder for a question, for help? Did you ever had that one person always asking you to come over for a small discussion without even sharing the topic? I don’t blame these behaviours, but we should all admit that they’re shortsighted. Rarely we do need that […]
