• Know thyself, the envy way

    If personal laissez faire and Facebook don’t reveal much about who you are: monitor your envy. You are those who you envy. You are the things you envy others for. Everything you envy is something that describes you. And everything you envy is at arms length, its just your actions separating you from those things, the Holly Grails others […]

  • Forget Maslow! Everything Is Basic Need.

    This damned theory, which governs our life plans, assumes that happiness is reached at the top of a pyramid of needs, and, until you get there, you must figure out more immediate problems like food, shelter or safety.

  • The day I will become a millionaire

    You’ve likely already found or at least seen the very best things (whether you know it or not). Make them count. I’ve always wondered about the use of this information. DHH is not the first nor the last, as he himself says, to somehow disseminate this information “through clever or modest-profound” ways. Why do rich people feel the […]

  • Letter to the struggling creator of anything

    Dear creative human, You are always busy. New ideas, new work, new output every hour after hour. At the end of the day it’s all meant to push you, bit by bit, closer to the place you want to be in. May the place be called “The top of the (collective) mind”. When you do get […]

  • Control freaks, everywhere

    From will.i.am to Lagerfeld Producers are currently doing to music what designers did to fashion: make it impossible. It is amazing how deep the desire to control the reality is rooted in the human brain. It’s like we’re fascinated about how reality just elegantly flows into existence and we desperately want to do the same. […]
