MakingMyself's Mission - Uncertainty Strikes Back

It's seems like yesterday when I decided to leave my short chased career in Investment Banking. But actually, almost 7 years have past since I tried to be one of those corporate yellow-less minions in seek for glory and reaches by transforming spreadsheets and powerpoint presentations in cold hearted cash. Not without having spent not less than 60 to 90 hours per week in shaping financial projections.

Further from the truth, six months in the industry, in Singapore, far away from my European home in Barcelona, the question my manager's manager had for me, had a very obvious answer:

"Hey boy, you did a great work for us. Do you want make it permanent?"

If you remember, the final scene of the movie "The pursuit of Happiness" (spoiler alert) when Will Smith's character, Chris Gardner, leaves the office in happy tears for having offered a position in a firm to become a broker. My situation then described something similar although with a different outcom…

Zonas Erógenas de la mujer

1. Clitoris
Un ganador fuera de control por el título de "Parte del cuerpo que más contribuye a la excitación sexual", el clítoris es extremadamente sensible. (¡Hola, terminaciones nerviosas!) Las investigaciones muestran que estimular el clítoris es la manera más rápida y fácil para que muchas mujeres lleguen al orgasmo. En su mayor parte, la presión y la vibración son el camino a seguir; la investigación sugiere que tocar suavemente no siempre tiene el mismo efecto.

Common sense commonly forgotten

Here are some great quotes on how to build good human relationships, in and out of work. Although the principles that apply are quite simple and intuitive, it astonishes me on how quickly we tend to forget them in crucial moments. This also applies to Give honest and Sincere Appreciation.

Don't Criticize, condemn or complain

B.F Skinner, the world-famous psychologist, proved through his experiments that an animal rewarded for good behavior will learn much more rapidly and retain what it learns far more effectively than an animal punished for bad behavior. Later studies have shown that the same applies to humans. Hans Selye, another great psychologist, said. "As much as we thirst for approval, we dread condemnation".

Arouse in the other person an eager want

Harry A. Overstreet in his illuminating book Influencing human behavior said: "Action springs out of what we fundamentally desire... and the best piece of advice which can be given to would-be persuaders, whether in b…

Give Honest and Sincere Appreciation

"The ability to arouse enthusiasm among my people is the greatest asset I possess and the way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement. There is nothing else that so kills the ambition of a person as criticism from superiors. I never criticize anyone. I believe in giving a person incentive to work. So I am anxious to praise but loath to find fault. If I like anything, I am hearty in my approbation and lavish in my praise" -  Charles Schwab

How to use Commitment to fulfill your goals !


Do you know the character of the picture below?
Yes, as you may have answered from the very beginning, this is Rocky Balboa, the character brought to life on screen by Sylvester Stallone in several times and which super skill was a highly noticeable endurance. 
The movie depicted an underdog  boxer whose primarily talent was rising again and again no matter the punishment he was suffering on the ring. Don't you think that having this mindset would substantially increase our chances to reach our goals in life?    
But where this Consistency comes from? How could we improve ours in order to boost our chances to reach those goals? 
I believe we could classify the main external and internal factors that feed our consistency levels:
Internal factors that increase consistency:Genes: There are people around that are Naturally Skilled  for some specific activities. If those activities are aligned with their goals, they normally won't require to spent too much energy. …

How do Economics of achievement work?

There's no question about it,... All human beings have goals and dreams to achieve. Everyone in our own universe want to reach a status, a feeling or something that will bring a peak of happiness in our lives. But not all of us have the same attitude towards the pain we'll have to suffer while achieving those goals.
Because, ladies and gentleman, as you all know, reaching our goals it's not going to be an easy task. Why? Because we got used to what's called "The Status Quo" which means we don't like changes in our regular lives. Why? Because it's painful for us! Changing our ways take effort and high amounts of energy.
"Who in its right mind would go for something that hurts?"
As many things in life we need to trade some things to acquire others. Taking the pain to break with the "Status Quo" have to have a reward in the end but,...
Is it a fair Trade?

To answer this question we'll have to analyze two simple possi…
