What’s behind a bigger purpose? Is it genetics, or is it earned?

Beginning this post providing evidence from several studies carried out in this field. According to them a slight variation in a particular gene is associated with bigger purpose and sometimes altruistic behavior. Greater Good Magazine article from Berkeley University, which you can also read fully here analyzed this. In the study, published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, German researchers took a saliva sample from 101 men and women, using the sa

To be, or to do, that is the question

According to the history, to be, or not to be is the opening phrase of a soliloquy spoken by Prince Hamlet in the so-called "nunnery scene" of William Shakespeare's play Hamlet. Act III, Scene I Possibly in today’s world, the most valuable currency you can have is to walk the talk, or in another words do and comply with the things you promise or say almost every day, regardless of if it’s in a working environment, to family, friends, or via WhatsApp. We live in world of const

From instant gratification to instant appreciation

And why we should do it. Not just because the stoic millennial discipline talks about it, but also because if not, we might end up unproductively complaining about our current status quo, rather than actively doing something (finding solutions) to change it. We might be quickly infecting everything and everyone around us, with an impact on our limited time in the Earth and our happiness in the long run. That is why most of the things providing instant or immediate gratificati

Why Roger Federer is not the #1 of all times (the secret)

Because it's not yet the moment. Not for him. Because you are not your recognition, your titles, your reputation or fame. You are just as good as the last second you did something in your life with a bigger intent than yourself. And because Roger Federer decides to see himself, as a regular human being who does his best to maybe be called after all the #1, someday. But not yet, not now. And this is something for sure Roger Federer is not getting tired of showing the entire wo

The story of the man who broke his ego two hundred times and kept going.

Probably he doesn’t know I’m writing about him during this precise second. Probably if he discover this post, he will get mad at me. I will take the risk. I choose to write about him, because, removing admired and people (family, friends, relatives) he is probably the closest person I’ve met to be a living legend. He is my Kung-Fu and mixed martial arts teacher. I will slightly mention he is world champion in several disciplines of the martial art already and he will keep rep

I'm that guy pushing the button

When the traffic light just went green for the cars to go. I’m that m****r-f****r turning around when an old person is standing in the bus or train whilst I’m comfortably scared thinking about losing my place. I’m that stupid guy not giving a shit when parking my car and not foreseeing well that extra space I’m taking out for another person to park. I’m that fool that takes twice the portion of what I need because I want it all me, regardless of the next ones to come. I’m tha

Decoding Intuition. The McGregor Effect.

As many others have called it “The law of attraction”. Believe or not it just takes 10.000 hours for anyone to become a master in anything. Just bear in mind to keep your health up to be able to enjoy it when it comes. Or might be the case it’s already there. Some people will call it success, others happiness, persistence, and many more they will call it luck. Like it or not there are not many other ways to make it happen rather than time, persistence and courage to go beyond

Merry Christmas, Merry Attitude (every day of your life)

I would like to take this moment to wish you all the best and encourage you to invest the content I’ve put together in a trilogy of books published in since 2011 to 2017 called “A life in a second”. You can buy them in Amazon, Bubok or Google Books.

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

¿Por qué la mayoría de la gente da problemas? (En lugar de soluciones)

Según un reciente estudio realizado en todo el mundo en una conocida institución de sociología, el 75% de las personas prefieren que se les solucionen las cosas antes que invertir tiempo en encontrar una solución para ellas. Es más sencillo, más rápido y no requiere exponerse al peligro de no encontrar la solución adecuada. Esto también tiene que ver con una parte muy primitiva de nuestro cerebro llamada amígdala que evita cualquier tipo de situación estresante como para que

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

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
