Parasitic Ideas that are Killing our Common Sense

The other day I was listening to one of the recent speeches of the newly appointed President Joe Biden. He was doing a speech in an event in Tulsa commemorating the 100th anniversary of the “massacre” that happened in the city where 300 African Americans were killed. One of the highlights of his speech was the…

The Subtle Art of Dealing with People

“A drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall” I don´t remember who said that brilliant phrase, but I have treasured it in my mind for more years that I can remember. Many people believe that to be successful in life, especially on the business arena, you have to be assertive, aggressive…

I’d rather be crazy….

and happy, than being normal and boring. That was the thought that crossed my mind while I passed by a bus stop and observed how people were looking at me in a sort of disbelief: It was snowing, minus two degrees, very early in the morning and this lady is running and smiling like crazy…

Declutter Your Mind…Declutter Your Life

I’m sitting right now in my favorite place in the living room: At my writing desk, gazing at the wonderful forest that happen to be right in front of my house. I took a small break to observe my surroundings: I like to see my living space tidy, clean, organized… nothing should be out of…

¿Qué Hay Detrás de la Igualdad?

Para muchos, la igualdad significa el fin último de las relaciones humanas; en la religión y en la política, el sueño de la igualdad se ha manejado durante siglos, como una forma de ilusionar…

The Myth of Work-Life Balance

Everybody that has corporate, industrious kind of job, knows that this is some sort of aspiring living style… a promised land of balance, prosperity and well-being. Where does this idea came from? Although it appears to be New Age, the…

La Belleza está en lo Pequeño

En un mundo que está obsesionado con el crecimiento indiscriminado y la acumulación material, yo me mantengo en la creencia fiel de que menos, es más. No seré la voz más popular, pero soy una voz de todas formas. Hace unos días, leí en un artículo de economía acerca de los países “ganadores” y “perdedores”…

Find Your Own Truth

I am not a believer of mainstream truths. Of course, with the exception of the irrefutable laws of nature, which, are not human made; and most likely are wrongly interpreted by us. I don’t believe in universal remedies. I don’t believe that we can standardize human affairs. Specially in business, this seems like it’s been…

Reflexiones de Año Nuevo: En Busca del Sentido

“Es difícil encontrar la felicidad en uno mismo, pero es imposible encontrarla en cualquier otro lugar”- Arthur Schopenhauer Este año está por terminar. Como es costumbre ya, me gusta reflexionar sobre lo que este año trajo a nuestras vidas, cuáles son las lecciones que nos deja para seguir creciendo. Está más que claro que no…
