    BOOK Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl

    For those who want to get deeper into Frankl´s philosophy or way of seeing challenges, I recommend reading the 3 big names in Stoicism (Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus and Seneca).

    BOOK Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl

    I like to see logotherapy as the will to meaning or the man´s necessity for a well thought purpose to have a directioned life so a way you can put that into practice is just to go deeper into why you are doing what you are currently doing and reframing some of your current challenges...

    Book: Blue Ocean Strategy

    It is about finding new attributes where your product can shine and target that. Some examples were Cirque du Soleil and a wine brand if I remember well, of course big boys have advantages but my taking is about being innovative and thinking outside the box about the needs of your customers...

    Should I learn digital marketing or coding as a 17yo?

    Why not learning both? You are still young so you could try both and see which one you like the most?are better at and then decide or combine them in creative ways for your career.

    Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started (seriously)

    I would also add one thing that not many people talk about and it is to start your business before you quit your job. You probably do not need to work 16 hours per day to get started and then you can see how it goes on the initial stages before you abandon your daily job. Also testing your risk...

    Quote of the Day - QOTD

    I don't care what anyone says. Being rich is a good thing. What I've learned in these 11 years is you just got to stay focused and believe in yourself and trust your own ability and judgment. (Mark Cuban)

    Found a motivation! I want to go live in Brazil!

    I do not think so because some corporate jobs can give you a very generous salary (if of course you do not go crazy on expenses). For instance with my current salary and quite decent quality of life I can save more than 50% and I am not even close to being senior, while in places like London or...

    I was having this discussion with a friend on how to practice sales/influence skills without necesarily working for the area. We got to the conclusion that this can work in seduction, when negotiating stuff in real life and learning how to act better in some situations (i.e role playing) but I...

    EXECUTION Spoiled Millennial Developing Self-Discipline

    And based on habits theory, remember that for whatever action you want to stop it is essential to have a replacement action. For example if everytime I am hungry I order pizza it is not good idea to just sit down and do nothing but just eat/drink something else (fruit, water,tea,whatever). Good...
