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

To love or to fear, that is the question (and how this affects our leadership)

Prestigious artists like Jim Carrey, Eric Prydz, or Will Smith magically describe with music and words what it means to live under one or the other and the consequences we may face living our lives with a predominance of any of love or fear. This is our everyday choice and no one else’s. This can provide us with meaning or unease. Not only artists, actors, scientists but also the most relevant coaching and mentoring tools today use these 2 factors to determine our current per

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 do we always want more?

Why just when we start enjoying what a second ago, a life ago was an aspiration (or another check of the wish list) we are still hungry for the next thing in the list. There are many reasons why, as many as people populating the planet, however there is a very common denominator. What it really happens if we are not able to control those emotions, is we are removing from that moment itself the beauty of simply enjoy it. And what is really the point in desiring something so mu

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

What we can’t see – And how it does impact our daily lives

Since the beginning of the human era, thousands of human beings have tried to be more linked to the spiritual side. Linked to things we cannot see. Not only because that unknown is in itself attractive but also because most of us we are confident there is something else. Something we cannot see. We are not talking here about religion, goddess or supernatural powers. We are talking about energy. As the hormones or the WI-FI, we cannot see them or touch them, but they do exist

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 one thing that matters (and nothing else)

As Victor Kuppers says – Be sure the thing that matters the most is that single thing that matters the most, nothing else. It seems obvious and simple. However, let me ask a simple question to you. If in the middle of your daily busy day, someone would come to you and ask you that? What would you answer? Probably you would think that person is awkward, weird and crazy. Who in his/her own judgment (full of ego and lack of presence) would take that question seriously at that ti

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

What will set you apart? (If you know it, and do something about it)

Knowing and acting based on deep knowledge and understanding of some basic concepts. We are part of something much bigger than ourselves. Magic will not happen if we are not ready for the magic to happen. 1. We are going to die at some point 2. We are not cleverer than someone else 3. Life is not a solo mission 4. We the people need each other people to be happier 5. Finding what makes us happy 6. Getting rid of toxic people (or getting to know how to deal w

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

Why do most people give problems? (Instead of solutions)

According to a recent study carried out worldwide in a well-known sociology institution, 75% of the people prefer to get things solved rather than investing time in finding a solution for them. It’s simpler, quicker and does not require exposing yourself to the danger of not finding the right solution. This has also to do with a very primeval part of our brains called amygdala which avoids any kind of stressful situation as for us to survive over any potential danger threaten

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

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
