Pause.

Looking back a hundred years ago human beings would travel an average pace of 6-12 Km/h. Today, though, we are flying on rocket ships, planes, super fast cars and that only happened recently, I mean, very recently in history. What that creates is a non-stop movement where there is simply a lot going on in… Continue reading Pause.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years

Some people will argue that they know exactly where they will be. So I started to think backwards: where was I 10 years ago and how I was answering such question in a job interview? College had just started out, first semester, still a rookie. I didn’t realize at the time but I was going through… Continue reading Where do you see yourself in 10 years

Freedom and responsibility

Freedom is when you realize you get to choose what to do with your time, resources and whatever God has given you. Responsibility is to understand you have the freedom to do whatever you want, that you could be doing something else, but you consciousness choose to do what it takes to do the right thing.… Continue reading Freedom and responsibility

Easier said than done

I look back and see how much has happened in the last few years and I have a great feeling of gratitude. After all, despite all the difficulties and how many things had to go wrong to get it right (things that are not always apparent to those who look from the outside), doing the… Continue reading Easier said than done

This is the world we live in

The internet has enabled the world to connect in various ways. Today, we no longer need to go to a person who obtains the information. We can do most things by ourselves. If I want to print, build, write, publish, scan, play, invent, invest, create…I can learn how to do it. Each day, more people are doing more things… Continue reading This is the world we live in

Travel does not make us better

A trip helps us see the world with different lenses, to realize the greatness that is out there and understand the void that exists inside us. It shows us so many different things (whether good or bad) which leads us to reflect on the actual size of our problems or what we constantly complain about.… Continue reading Travel does not make us better

Work as working for God

I always had this thing about turning 27. Not sure why, I just had. Since I was a kid I always imagined how it would be when I get to this age. I remember I was a super shy kid, with a big wave of uncertainty surrounding my mind. I watched people in the subway wearing their white collar suits… Continue reading Work as working for God

‘Too busy to do this’…

  …is one more excuse we create to ourselves, one that doesn’t make us feel guilty, because you know…we are “working”, “studying”, taking care of something or someone. This reminds me when I was a kid and my mom – mother of three – raised us on her own. So she managed to go to work in… Continue reading ‘Too busy to do this’…

A long term career plan…

…is defined by your ability to give small steps consistently. There’s no magic. It is about planning and hard work. And in order to be able to achieve a long distance run, one of the best ideas I have ever had is to start breaking a career plan into 12 months chunks. One year is usually what you need… Continue reading A long term career plan…

The big picture

The kind of work that makes a difference is often done in the edge of creativity. For this kind of work, there are no “immutable truths” because in fact the answers are still being found. From history we learn to look back and see the big picture. We can clearly visualize how someone or some… Continue reading The big picture

I’ll give you the floor

Today it’s not going to be about me. You have the room to give ideas and I’ll careful listen to them. If you need a hand to do some hard work, I’ll be a volunteer. If you have more important stuff to deal, I’ll take care of the things that are distracting you. Being a leader is… Continue reading I’ll give you the floor

Being surrounded with different cultures

Having breakfast in one of the four tables a “terraza” has (that’s what they call the tables in the outside here in Spain) hearing three different languages is definitely a new experience for me. A couples of months ago I moved to Barcelona which my wife and I had been planning over the last two… Continue reading Being surrounded with different cultures

The Excuses Database

“I admire people who made…but you know, I should have done this before I was 30. Now it’s not safe” Safe. What kind of successful path you hope to find without involving risk? If every decision in life is always the most safe, odds are you’ll end up missing the sunshine view from a breathless… Continue reading The Excuses Database

Shelves

Our brain works like shelves in our room. We start putting books on a shelf and suddenly we create a personal collection of books. We can go to the shelf and take a book at any time to consult an specific subject and then put it back. The book will then stay there at our disposal for any… Continue reading Shelves
