On Failure and Success in the Internet era – the twisted marriage of modern perceptions

Have been reading Forbes and Fortune today and they are all with their different “lists”. Forbes – updating the rich (gender, age, trade etc..), Fortune – going for leadership and failures. Especially how the successful ones (who also happen to be rich) relate to failure. http://fortune.com/2016/03/25/successful-people-failure/ And here is where the twist of the examples kicks […]

Easter – the thoughts on modern Resurrection

Just had this thought, following Brussels terror attack – is there a chance for Resurrection of Europe? Will there be a true soul searching process and discussion of the European identity? Beyond the shallow Brussels’ rules and mandarin speak…..Will this current death hype and porn lead to an effective shift in the mindset….Or will it […]

Like the broken Swiss clock which nobody wants to mend. Yes, all written by the organisational/recruitment gurus, who predominantly seem to be ….female. Asking the […]

The drag of August and September….השממון של אוגוסט-ספטמבר

I love heat. And sun….But this year it has been particularly extreme due to the almost 100% humidity. And it actually stalled everything, it halted life.
