toughest

It’s only at the extreme that you can see and understand what your limits are. How do you react when you’re angry, hopeless, drunk? How much control do you have in those situations? That’s when the worst part of you shows up and it’s up to you if you want to listen to it or […]

the road to success

Is not something clear, because: How would you even define “success”?It’s paved by failure no one remembers nor talk about. It’s based on adjusting, changing things that don’t work until they do.It’s boring. That’s why many fail, because we don’t stick, we follow trends, fears, loves instead of thinking objectively about where to go from […]

team building

It’s an abused word. Team building. Seems like everyone should like everyone else. In some context it is taken to the extreme but the real team building is not about building a team.

things you don’t know

in life there are no blueprints. There is no clear path. That’s why it’s not really important what you choose. You can change it. Some time it’ll be harder than others, but nothing is set in stone. You can unravel any choice, make it better, make it count, as long as you keep your heart […]

raise the flag

You can’t save them all. You can’t fix it all. There are things that are part of your possibilities and you should pursue them. But some of them might require too much effort, for what? Given the fact that we all have a finite amount of time, energy and will, how will you spend it? […]

quality is a choice

Quality is not something you find by accident. It’s a clear choice you make either buying or doing something. If you care about quality when you make your work, then you’ll do different decisions, take different bets. Quality isn’t about the short term, it’s about the long term
