No role is final

There is no final role in your career. What you have now is part of what you may or may not become. It’s a step. It can be incremental or decremental. You might discover that the role you’re about to do isn’t that exciting, or that it doesn’t suit you. Or even that you simply …

what makes you angry?

Think about it, what makes you angry? If a coworker doesn’t obey your order, what makes you angry? If you lose at a game, what makes you angry? In many situations our anger is pointed towards others, but if you look closely it’s strictly connected to our ego.Our self-image being lowered, our position being altered, …

any relationship is an investment

I always thought that relationships are just that, a relation between two persons. Often I though that they ought to be directly linked. If I did something good I hoped that something good would eventually come.If I did harm, I expected to harm that relationship. In some ways it went like that. I harmed (emotionally) …

it’s all about the people

What makes a company worthwhile? Is it their goal? Is it their software? Those are part of it, but they’re never enough. Yes, “the dream” can help, but at the end of the day what makes a company truly worthwhile is the people you interact with. Their empathy, their ability to connect, to feel your …

You see it everywhere. Brands now advertise themselves as environmentally conscious, green, caring for the planet. Years ago only few brands stood out because of these attributes, but nowadays it seems every company cares about the carbon footprint, being environment friendly, create less plastic and so on.

say thanks more often

We should thank more often. Take a moment to realize who are the people that influenced us, that shaped our lives and thank them. Think about all the friends, all the coworker, all the people that have been an inspiration for you, that helped you get through the rough times, that supported you when nobody …

identity of work

I’m not attached to work titles. Sure, they are tied to how much you earn at the end of the month, but I always felt they were an unnecessary weight to your decisions. The first problem is the main problem of any job. We’re tied to money.Unless we reach financial freedom we’re at stake, so …

it always takes time but it’s not about time

My wife had some necklaces that became all intertwined, and she needed to untie them. I offered to lend a hand and help her, not because she couldn’t do it, but because it was a good chance to recall two good things I learned in life: Untying and doing useless things. On untying: It was …

we should be honest on what we care about

There will be hard times, there will be a hard moment, we will fail. But if we’re honest with others about our story, about what we believe, what we hope, then we can communicate. It’s only through communication that we can change something. It’s by playing with our cards clearly visible that others can chime …

Always choose people over processes

In a remote working world it’s easy to forget about people and think about processes. Empathy, in a remote working world, is something much harder to express and convey, it’s easy to miss the subtle changes in body language. That’s why it’s so important. Any process won’t be able to replace the kind of care …
