where do you stop?
Yesterday, Apple presented the Vision Pro, and it’s clear this was a target for them since the early introductions of AR Kit. Now, let’s look at this from a product perspective and imagine how much time, effort, and work it took to get to this point. We’re probably talking about a multi-year product development with…
If I look back at myself, twenty years ago, I see how much importance I gave to appear serious while working. It was always part of what I considered normal. Work was serious stuff afterall. Over time, though, I learned the value of play, thanks to a dear friend, and started enjoying the play at…
I still remember the day when one of my friends told me how surprised he was about one coworker who was facing stress at work. By stress, I mean the stress that comes by making hard choices while not having enough power.He noted that, for him, this would have been a no-brainer. He would just…
Sometimes life asks you to be there, be present, and do nothing. To watch the world unfold, clear up, and evolve. We always want to control things, to change them, to be part of them, but from time to time we are asked to be spectators, watchers passing by while the world revolve.
I’m unusual.I tell people what I like about them, I like being sentimental and sharing with the people around me (friends, but even coworkers) when something touches my heart.

I think most of us, at one point, though “I won’t be like them” when thinking about our parents. Traits we didn’t like, behaviors we didn’t accept. Then one day we decided that no, we will be different than them. We will be better. Will we be, though? I’ve seen many people say the same and…
I recently wrote about how much influence “things we don’t need” have over us. Saying “No, thanks” internally helps. We are constantly tested, even by normal things. Like skipping a habit we care about. What might happen if we skip one day, right? Willpower, intention, dedication, is a muscle. Every single time we choose to…
Life is often about marketing / selling.Because marketing means marketing your ideas, to sell them to the people around you. Want to go to a restaurant and you’e trying to convince friends? You’re doing marketing. Choosing a new apartment? Marketing. Selling has many forms, it’s not restricted to selling a physical object, but it spans…

Lately, I needed to change the way I eat because of some persistent stomach burn. I intended to do this anyway, controlling my eating habits better is healthy, and it’s also a nice way to train my self-control. So, it all started. I started eating more slowly, trying to be the last finishing the meal…
