• Alexandra Schwartz makes an hilarious scrutiny of our society's obsessive urge of continuously seeking to be "the best version of ourselves" by pointing out from the neverending technological resources available to the infallible advice offered by best selling authors like Tim Ferris, to Charles Duhigg to Jane McGonigal.

    But the article is centered in the outcome of the book “Desperately Seeking Self-Improvement: A Year Inside the Optimization Movement”, written by Carl Cederström and André Spicer, two business-school professors in a field called “organization studies". The book is a comically committed exploration of current life-hacking

  • James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, a very powerful book that I highly recommend, states what behavioural science can teach us about habits, decision making, and continuous improvement. In one of his popular articles, he writes about the The Four Burners Theory, a way of thinking about work-life balance that stemmed from a David Sedaris' article in the New Yorker.

    It can sound pretty discouraging and somehow unacceptable for some of us, and you might probably reveal against it, but it has a point my dear. Life is full of trade-offs, every choice has a cost, and no, I am sorry, we can't have it all. Main ideas below, be nice and give it a chance.

  • "In Silicon Valley, techies are swooning over tarot-card readers. In New York, you can hook up to a “detox” IV at a lounge. In the Midwest, the Neurocore Brain Performance Center markets brain training for everything from ADHD, anxiety, and depression to migraines, stress, autism-spectrum disorder, athletic performance, memory, and cognition.

    The reason why I am inviting him here is for what he says and believes in. In 2013, the University of Western Australia awarded him an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Letters and invited him to address the graduating class.

    I have to confess that I have a weakness for commencement-speeches, but a side of my preferences, I think that we all should listen to what he has to say.
    It may look simple and obvious but it's extremely important and relevant in order live a life well lived.

  • Career advice - even if it's one of the most required - is one of the hardest, and maybe, the most absurd genres to counsel. We are all so different and diverse, and so are our backgrounds and realities and expectations, that there is not such as a general career advice rule's sheet.

    But if, gun to my face, I had to set up a list of the wiser and more valuable factors to take into account on a professional path, it would be something similar to Derek Thompson's concepts below.

    First, and one of the most important (integrate this): Your career is not your life.
