Creating something from nothing
Saturday, 15 June 2013
I can’t think of a project where there haven’t been any changes in something, or some type of challenges to overcome. But this is what makes things interesting.
Believing in the beauty of dreams
Saturday, 01 June 2013
Why do we do what we do? Why our dreams are the first thing we put down when our life gets too busy? Why do we give up dreaming before we have even really begun? Dying in our beds many years from now would we be willing to get one chance, just one chance to come back to these days and take the opportunity to do what we had always dreamed of?
Finding a meaning in life
Saturday, 18 May 2013
Over last few years I’ve read dozens of books written by extraordinary thinkers who shared their lessons learnt from their own lives and their thoughts about happiness in general. Some were better educated than others; some were billionaires with thousands of employees; some worked alone; some wanted as much profit as possible; some wanted as little profit as possible; some worked 80 hours per week; some worked from 9am to 5pm. What was their secret of happiness? They all shared the same philosophy, that if we can’t find an external focus in our lives, it’s our responsibility as human beings to create it, whether that is fulfilling dreams or finding work that gives us purpose and self-worth.
Socializing with others
Saturday, 04 May 2013
I question the relationship between intellect, academic performance and success in general. For me, creativity, hard work, certain social skills, courage, perseverance, planning, being goal-oriented, and, most of all - self-discipline, are more significant than grades and test results. These are also the values I and Sylwia want to install in our daughters.
