  • Why finding “10x” developers is so hard

    I work on web development projects for over 15 years and the biggest challenge has constantly been: quality human capital. It is really a weird situation, in a domain that is so technically inclined, where people face with problems that may boggle some of the greatest minds, to be set aside instead by problems of […]

  • When to Delete Everything

    Did you notice how we create complexity to solve complexity? I did, and then I wanted to delete everything. Tabula rasa means blank slate. It is coming from the requirement of erasing by melting the layer of wax used to write things on back in the Roman days. In time it has transcended this mundane […]

  • An offer with an anchor inside is called bait

    Anchoring is a cognitive bias that describes the common human tendency to rely too heavily on the first piece of information offered (the “anchor”) when making decisions.

  • The worst players of capitalism are companies in the labor market.

    Have you ever asked for a salary increase, and instead of negotiation you got hostility? Have you ever got a salary increase, but spent the next year out-proving yourself to justify the increase? Have you ever been told that the company only expects the best from you? Companies only expect the best, but they only […]

  • I hate team buildings and after hours parties. I do. They suck.

    The old joke “mandatory fun” is true 100%. Why should anyone care to spend even more time in the same social setting after throwing the bulk of their week at it? I mean, if you can’t be friends, nice, helpful, human, with the people that help you feed your children, during at least forty hours a […]

  • Inspiration is a myth

    The thing about inspiration is: it doesn’t exist on its own! It all starts with wishful thinking: All inspirational messages are wishful thinking made of hope and action. “Everything happens for a reason!”, … means: let’s hope there is a reason that will justify our self indulging actions. “Life is an adventure!”, … means: hopefully I am […]

That means we’re made to withstand adversity, given adversity is grand, yet we’re also made to ignore adversity, given adversity is little. One can live with urinary infection and depression their whole life. We go over hardships and […]
