Life is an on-going cycle between exploring, experimenting, and succeeding/failing. It all starts the moment we are born. We try and we fail, but we never stop. Some things might stick easier and others will fade away over time. Be curious and keep iterating, exploring, and experimenting. As kids, we explore the intersection between lots … Continue reading Explore and experiment
Living and Learning
Whatever you do, protect your motivation and self esteem at all costs. What you are attempting to do is very hard, and you should expect to suck at it for a long time. In fact, you should expect to repeatedly suck at it as you move up to more and more complex things. Don't hate … Continue reading Living and Learning
Recuerdos, decisiones, aciertos y errores
Recuerdos van, recuerdos vienen. Pienso en todos los aciertos y errores que he cometido para llegar a donde he llegado. Porque que seríamos sin todo esto? La vida es una toma de decisiones constantemente y cada decisión tiene dos partes: la buena y la mala; lo que se gana y lo que sé pierde; lo … Continue reading Recuerdos, decisiones, aciertos y errores

We keep doing things that aren’t even on par with our principles and values, what we stand for. Why do we do this when we … Continue reading Learning to stop

Control your control
Life will throw curve balls at you all the time. What can you do? How would you react when you’re unprepared? How would you feel when you already have lots of things on your plate… when you’re stressed out?

It’s ok not to know
When we compare ourselves to other, we more often than not end up doing ourselves an injustice.
