Facebook is not the only way of communication

facebook-logo-300x300A few days ago I was talking with a friend of mine who told me that he was in a lot of stress, because he has been working on a project for a while, but there appeared an error with the setup of the project, just one day before the deadline. As if that was not enough, he was online on Facebook and was a bit surprised, because I see Facebook as a very good tool of distraction. I suggested him to sign out from Facebook and concentrate on his task instead, but he had a reason. He said that Facebook was the only way he could communicate with the other two people that have been collaborating with him in the project. That excuse gave me the idea to write an article on how to deal with these types of situations and solve the problem of communication. Continue reading

Stop complaining and start solving the problems

Team of construction worker with equipmentSooner or later you will face problems that might be a bit hard to swallow.

Your laziness might be just a thought

todo2You are constantly thinking something, whether that is about your past events or situations, your current state and task that you are dealing with, or a future plan that you have put on your to-do list. Sometimes it is possible that among these cases, you might not feel inspired and ready to do your work, and a new thought pops up into your head that you might not be doing the right job, or that you have not found the passion of your life yet. You start to make different false connections in your mind to justify these situations, and maybe even identify these cases as indicators that you have are not productive; you are a lazy person. Wait a second: what if that is just another thought that is probably wrong? Continue reading

1-2-3 rule that can help you build relationships

RelationshipYesterday I was travelling by bus and I wanted to talk to a person who was staying behind me, but I was somehow feeling uncomfortable doing that. I hesitated in the beginning and then I started to think that I will not look good in front of him and then the overthinking paralyzed me and stopped me to start the conversation that I wanted to make. I have read before about a method that would help me start the conversation, but I did not implement it in this case and I regret that lost moment. Continue reading

An analogy about the difference between knowledge and information

How one dress can improve your life

dress-7On February 26, an image of a dress showed at a Tumblr page, for which people were arguing whether it has a black and a blue color, or a white and a yellow color. A lot of people started to give their opinion based on their look and say which type of color they saw, and found it a bit weird that their opinion was not the same as the opinion of other people. I was curious to see this image and, because I am a bit biased, I tend to view things from different points of view that are mostly related with extracting the benefits from them. As a resultĀ I decided to write this article about the lessons that we can get from this dress that got a lot of attention recently. Continue reading
