A friend of mine is in a potentially dangerous situation. He works in another department, and he has put in hard work and late hours to develop a great little product over the past few years. It’s a bit weird/”idiosyncratic,” but it works great. A great part of his self-confidence…


There’s the flip side of corporate America. A world nobody talks about… well… with the exceptions of Bullshit Jobs, an excellent recent book, which is way more scientific than the title suggests. Let me give a hypothetical IT example.

Imagine someone, relatively incompetent, who stays in a company long enough…


As a young IT professional, you might get the feeling that your goal is to be “excellent,” “exceptional” and other such demanding and somewhat stressful adjectives. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. This couldn’t be more true for someone’s career as well. …


I’m listening to this audiobook — “The Art of Strategy: A Game Theorist’s Guide to Success in Business and Life” and in Chapter 5, the authors mention “Quasi-magical Thinking.” This is a kind of — as they call it — “irrational” thinking, that makes their calculations not work that well…

A friend asked me how to create the perfect CV/Resume. I have seen hundreds of resumes over the years. I usually see them after the Recruiter/HR screening, which means that I’ve seen only the good ones. Still, there is a large variety of them. Some do service, while others disservice.


Mr. Simon Sinek, nice to meet you. This is one of my “favorite” videos of yours.

I kind of love and hate it at the same time. I love it because you have some excellent points. Your voice is perfect. Your speech is perfect and sharp as a knife…
