Se la risposta arriva da sola, non era una domanda.

 “Nothing” is the most common response.

Do nothing until you do know the answer. Study and practice and wait for approval and then do something.

Which is fine (for a surgeon) but what happens most of the time? Most of the time there’s something that needs to be done where the answer is unknowable until you do it…

That’s what we’re waiting for you to do. 


… perché decidere è decidere quando non si hanno tutte le informazioni, quando ci si mette in gioco per una scelta, perché si ha una visione… perché non si ha paura del rischio… o perché si ha paura del rischio, ma non scegliere è comunque una scelta, la peggiore…

Perfect and impossible

 If you are in love with the perfect, prepare to see it swept away. If you are able to dream of the impossible, it just might happen. 


Discard fear of failure

Discard fear of failure

 When did you last start something new? Was it maybe a while back? As children we are always starting something new. Then, as we go through our twenties, thirties, and further, we become more hesitant about being a beginner again. Why? Maybe because we don’t want to look silly when we fail.

Regole dell’arte di ascoltare

Regole dell’arte di ascoltare

  1. Non avere fretta di arrivare alle conclusioni.
  2. Quel che vedi dipende dal tuo punto di vista.
  3. Se vuoi comprendere devi assumere che chi parla abbia ragione.
  4. Le emozioni ti informano su come tu stai guardando, non su ciò che vedi.
  5. Un buon ascoltatore è un esploratore di mondi possibili.


Da un seminario sull’Intelligenza Emotiva.
Una versione completa di queste regole si può trovare
nel libro “Arte di ascoltare e mondi possibili” di Marinella Sclavi.

Grazie all’aiuto di Francesco, ne ho predisposto anche una versione graficamente accattivante, della dimensione giusta per questa cornice (si consiglia il colore nero).

Change your mind… Find your way…

 In a world of surfers, all you can do is work to make the best wave you can. The real revolution is that you get to make waves, not just ride them. 


Follow the “Vision”

 Entrepreneurs, I invite you to start asking yourselves new questions. What vision of the future truly inspires you?  What values and principles do you want to live by? What will allow you and your team to flourish? In the words of philosopher Howard Thurman, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” 

Dave Kashen

People were created to be loved. Things were… | Uomo in mare!

 People were created to be loved.
Things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used.

Four stages of the game

Four stages of the game

  • You don’t even realize there’s a game. (And any contest, market, project or engagement is at some level a game).
  • You start getting involved and it feels like a matter of life or death. Every slight cuts deeply, every win feels permanent. “This is the most important meeting of my life…”
  • You realize that it’s a game and you play it with strategy. There’s enough remove for you to realize that winning is important but that continuing to play is more important than that. And playing well is most important.
  • You get bored with the game, because you’ve seen it before. Sometimes people at this stage quit, other times they sabotage their work merely to make the game feel the way it used to.
  • And then a new, different game begins.
