Why Multi-tasking = Nonsense-tasking

Many people still believe strongly multi-tasking is something of value to practice and mention, or to be proud of being practised daily. And this belief is very far from reality as multi-tasking is the non-efficient ability to start one thing and without having finished it, start another one, and another one and another until the list is bigger than the task itself. Studies reveal the high damage this causes to the health of any human being practising this wrongly appointed a

Attitude must be shown when we want to show it less

It doesn’t matter what we did in the past, what we are doing now, or what we are thinking to do next. The past does not exist neither the future, it’s just here and now. This is what we really are, now. To align with ourselves and the universe around us, to know who and how we want to be and behave is something to be done every day as if it was the first one and the last one, because that is the only thing which makes our existence meaningful. Doing what is required at the ri

Why we don't like to wait

But we love to do, to try, to reach, to discover, to travel, to read, to not stop, to talk, to discuss, and to see new things “out there”. And what happen once we've done, tried, reached, discovered or travelled? We keep having an impetuous desire inside telling us to keep searching for more emotions out there, without stopping to begin again. Usually what happen is we never get this desire satisfied, and we want more and more. We will never get enough. Because what we are co

Courage - Loving to fail repeatedly, and keep trying over and over again

Who would in their own sanity be happy to fail over and over again? The ones who know they have nothing to lose and a lot to win. Probably the only ones who decide genuinely to stay true to their values over the average. The ones who are awake enough to meet the real opportunity life means. The ones who know what means to overcome daily basis the today’s stigma – “you can’t fail” The ones who really understand failure as a natural way of experience and learn from anyone or an

When we collide (and life hits hard)

As Biffy Clyro sings, Many of Horror (When We Collide), we seem to live always alert, always ready for something bad to happen. The truth is, not that many bad things in life are later happening, luckily. In addition, the worst can happen is a well-known one, when any of our beloved ones passes away. Moreover, this is what exactly has happened recently in my closest circle. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do when these things happen. Apart from being there, being suppo

The brave don’t wait till Friday. They enjoy Mondays (and Tuesdays)

As Patti Smith Group used to sing in 1978; because the night belongs to lovers, Mondays are those days that most of us insist to remove from our calendars. A sad learning point that instantly should come to our minds, is that any Monday could be a powerful game changer in our lives if we just would pay attention to what it really means, in spite of swearing on them. After that, we might come to understand that loving ourselves it’s the beginning to start loving in a proper ma

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

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 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

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

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

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

Born to be wild (born to be you)

We are all the same 70% water, bones and attitude. It’s not by chance that Steppenwolf — Born to be wild’s Video in YouTube hits exactly 35,634,747 views in this precise moment plus 151,201 likes. (Recommended is to read the article, listening the song) Probably because most of us would love to live, laugh and love wild. And why not, in the end wild is what we are. Our essence is wild, we all come from the sea. However why most of us just do wild sometimes, even most of the t

Connect to the "No limits Wi-fi"

Josh Waitzkin author of the book "The art of learning" and several times world champion in martial arts and chess, speaks loudly about it. Most humans tend to judge, cross reference and act taking into account every single second, emotion and experience we have come across in our most recent and not so recent past. Why is that?. Purely surviving reasons behind. This is what made us reach to the point in history and evolution we are in, today. However even though we count on s

Dream what you want. Be what you dream

Walking the talk is the one and only way. It works. Dreams, desires, goals and aims are just propaganda, if not accompanied by real and truthful actions. Everything else is just metaphysical ending in the nothing. Be true to yourself. Stop the hidden agendas, uncover the ones who have them. They just work for the short term. Open your mind to ideas and actions, regardless who is sharing them. Stop judging and start observing and question yourself as children do. Limit yoursel

Comfort kills, it really does. A tribute to Ibn Ali Miller (March 2017)

Tomorrow is Monday and we may feel bad about it, being our own time!. Sounds crazy, right? Sounds ironic, no? If the answer to these questions is yes, keep reading because you, me and everybody out there could be dying right now. What if we stopped for a second and truthfully assume that might be we buying things, thoughts and values we don’t want and need to please people we don’t like. Who’s to blame there?. Just you, me, him or her, the ones who are letting this happen. I

Why loving our pain

This is the eternal paradox. Recent studies carried out in hundreds of hospitals around the world are revealing 80% of terminal people when asked, what's your number one regret in your life?, they come to a very simple and powerful response; "I did live the life of many others, but mine" and "I was not truthful to myself". At the same time, most of those people when asked if would have had the same friends, jobs or relationships (the what) they replied YES. However, again wha

Being the second, being successful

As Benjamin P. Hardy describes in his masterpiece “Slipstream Time Hacking ” success is not about getting our goals in life. Success is all about how we make those goals happen, and how much we do really enjoy each second we invest in getting those goals happening. Ignacio G. Campos describes success as a second, not referring a second as a momentum being a position in any competition. He describes it as how we live every infinitesimal portion of time we have the luck to live
