We don't have more time

Than the time we already have and had. No one is ensuring us, me or anyone we are making it to the next day. There is no past, nor future. Those concepts both live in our minds. For sure they are not what is happening now, which is the essence of who we are. We are not our past, what we accomplished, our title, our job, our role, neither our future. We are just the one thing we have done and how we have done it at the very last second. This is who we are, our last second, our

When you think “it’s over”, but you still have 10.000 laps to go

Or as the most masterminded and hearted ones would say, it takes 10.000 times to conclude “I tried enough”. Michelangelo, Aristotle, Newton, Michael Jordan, Steven Spielberg, Robin Sharma, Joshua Waitzkin, Tim Ferris, Greg Mckeown and other not so well-known names practiced that thing they believed in, with a very concrete and unique pattern in common: they never gave up, until they made it, whichever it was what they believed in or they wanted to accomplish. They kept practi

Xmas is not a date. It’s an attitude (365 days a year)

“Wired but not connected”. How can it be possible that we all (me included) need to wait 365 days to re-engage with the Xmas spirit and what it means? Usually means solidarity and caring for the others in a special way. Usually, during these 15 days of the year, we are more aware of the things happening beyond our bellies and cell phone screens. Why are we just more aware during Xmas? Why do we forget about family, friends, and strangers (people like us) most of the rest of d

You are not your CV (but much more)

According to a CNBC recent study 3 out of 4 people are caught by recruiters on a “lie” or on a not real statement on their CV. But this post pretends to go way beyond that conclusion. Yet the most important assets which build our CVs are: who we are now and how we behaved (the power of intention – check Wayne’s Dyer masterpiece) during the last second lived when our CV was being questioned or analyzed. Who we are now and how we act this very present second is all that matters

Amongst zombies, vampires and psychopaths (and we all)

And some other energy drainers out there. You better know them, learn how to identify them and most importantly you better know how to set land apart from them. Most of the times it’s not so difficult to identify them if we let our intuition work and facts reveal. However most of the times what is really difficult is to move away from them, as it could be the case we have been living next to them so much time, and we let ourselves go. We all have been zombies (or still we are

Why you shouldn’t believe in luck

First of all, because as any psychologist will tell you, it’s a limiting belief, which will play a non-desired role in your life, taking you to make decisions in an arbitrary way, rather than stepping into your own path (although as you might know there is no path, it’s just here and now). Secondly, because it will remove ownership to your actions, or as we usually do, we will take it just when the outcome is good or positive, removing ourselves from the equation when the har

When less is more (and how to take exponential advantage of it)

Or when two people are in true-love or a teamwork is in deep harmony, or just when someone pays resilient attention to what matters the most when communicating something rather than to what is being communicated. When you see and feel true communication it’s almost as “when the nothing means everything”, or when a pause (a silence) can communicate far beyond than a thousand words. And this is usually happening when we truly care about the receptors side of the message, rather

Why email management kills

Why do leaders, people, and companies create processes to grow if we forget the most important one, “human interaction and mutual understanding”? I would like to give a typical example, which is a complete exaggeration but as real as life itself. When anyone begins working at a company, there is a need and urgency to know all aspects of the environment, what and where things are going on. At this stage, we start learning as sponges. The most important rule that anyone at any

One angel for each nine demons

Psychology, sociology and human interactions experts say for every good deed we do or even think about there will be at least nine times we will procrastinate, or think negatively on our minds, about ourselves or others. That’s the number one reason we need to train and teach our angel as if it was the biggest muscle we have. And of course, the best training we can do for this angel of us is to make him run a marathon. For which we do really need first to learn how to make hi

When there’s nothing left (and you want to give up)

When you are about to throw the towel. When the fears and comfort zone are crying inside loud to their maximum level. Suddenly everything seems to go wrong and you have been left alone, where no-one else can see. It seems as if the world was about to end. But just in our heads, hearts and souls. The world will keep turning, into a million of galaxies universe, where we are an infinitesimal portion of time and form. It just takes a big breath, inhaling, exhaling, and elevate o

Who stole your beauty? (Your art)

Years of survival and evolution have taught us to point fingers at anyone out there. Usually anyone but us. However, whether you, I or anyone else like it or not, this it’s not the focus. It’s precisely you, me, him or her the ones who should take the fire here, take real responsibility. Assuming and recognizing it, this is something not many are willing to start with, not even throughout our lives, until it might be too late, and there is no time to change. At some point in

Customer experience is over. It’s all about the "selling experience".

You name it!. As finally and ultimately it all comes to a human interaction where both sides are sharing and influencing, one to each other. Name it again! What it does matter to all those who sell something (yourself, products, or services) is picking up every buyer’s feedback, putting it together to obtain common conclusions and elaborating a plan to adapt your way to what most buyers want. During the last years, we have put way too much effort into figuring out how we can

Moving away from perpetual denial

Is there anything better than the feeling of being special? The same feeling you get when you are an unbroken child and your father, mother or that person teaches you something you end up loving or shows you that awesome new thing you didn’t know it existed. Or the feeling you get when you meet someone special, in which you mirror and project the feelings you get, expecting the other person feels the same about you, and it’s awesome. Or the one you get when you arrive at that

Selling the dream, delivering a nightmare

According to exhaustive studies carried out in Silicon Valley and several prestigious universities, we spend 90% of our time selling something, either if it’s ourselves, products or services and navigating through any of the many stages of the process. It’s is clear this process is quite relevant for us taking it for granted, leaving innovation out of the process. The Rain Group has recently published the conclusions of a highly insightful survey carried out amongst diverse b

Seeing beyond cell screens

As the most respected leader in a well-known media organization cited recently in her farewell message "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” ― Marcel Proust. Or as Greg McKeown, New York Times Bestseller Author relates in his book "Essentialism" - the disciplined pursuit of less: give, do, feel less, but better. It's not necessary to travel far to enjoy the path, nor expense a lot for quality outcomes. it's required a d

The ones reaching first win. Bullshit.

The one who enjoys the race does. No one wins when he or she are not liking what he or she does. Most of us want to know how to do enjoy the way, the path. The main problem in the equation is we are still waiting for someone to come and give us the three magic bullet points that will change our lives, how we perceive our job or how being happier. Hey, stop that!. Wake up!. No one is going to make that for me, you or anybody. You can attend to courses, seminars, reading about

The worst thing can happen

To you, to me, to anybody is under normal circumstances and present options, we make the conscious choice of stop learning and sharing our knowledge. Dr. Marisa Peer explains it in her video. She has proved throughout the time with thousands of elite athletes and sport eminences, artists and well-known creators in the world. The reality, even if we like it or not is that schools, universities and mainly society are preparing us most of the times to pass the exams and then sta

Push beyond the pain

This is what someone yesterday was asking the master in mixed martial arts class, while stretching. And what did the rest do whenever he finished the question? Laugh and laugh, until he publicly assumed and recognized that it was a stupid question. This is what in the end becomes most of our days, whilst we forget or avoid to keep this brain tattoo load and clear wherever we go. This should be our daily flag and the mechanism we apply to get wherever we want to go in life, di

Who do you think you are?

Because according to studies and experts, it takes just 60 days to become an utterly different person. Saying it in other words, you can build routines and behaviours which will drastically change the person you are now, not only how people will perceive you, but most importantly how you will perceive yourself from the inside-ou Might be the case you still don’t believe it. It’s normal, as it has been like this most of the times, most of your time. However, it’s not me again
