There’s a topic I come back to very often, and it’s the fact that consistency trumps everything. Keep moving is the best way to reach a goal, to get to the end of something.I saw this recently while reading a book on how to raise children. It’s hard to raise them because we surrender, we […]
Our socials are a way to hide our struggles. The pretty faces, the smiles. They are like paintings, a moment in time, but they do not show our pain, our struggle with anything in life. And we do struggle, each one of us, each day. That’s why a wise man says to always greet with […]
There’s a problem with hiring. We hire people for what we need now, but we should hire them for what we’ll need in 2 years. Perspective is essential. That’s why so many people are caught up when facing a job interview with the imposter syndrome. A perfect fit is rare, and the value we add […]
We live in a performance based world. Your time is your first kpi for performance. If you are on time, if you deliver on time, then your performance is good. If you deliver early, then it’s exceptional. You measure your performance by what you can do in a day, if you slack too much you’re […]
Lately I’m mostly connecting the dots between people and it’s quite hard to measure and most importantly value my work.

I am an optimistic person when it comes to trusting others. I always image there is a good reason for their actions and that they are moved by something they care about. That’s why I always make mistakes when it comes to do shady things based on fear. I don’t usually do them by instinct, […]
A simple thought that might need some deeper examination: There is a strict correlation between how you react to something (even mentally) and what you do after.
I often see people try to impress others, because if they succeed they think they are better then the norm. It’s not like they really think this, but it’s what moves their actions. They are moved by an implicit goal based on recognition, expectation, and goals. If they fail, they’ll feel bad, as if they […]
