New Year’s Resolutions 2020: Focusing on the right habits

Posted on January 6, 2020

For eight years I’ve been setting public goals for myself. With more or less success I’ve also been evaluating the outcomes without exception. From these reviews come the feedback I crave to keep improving and tweaking to adapt myself. From last year’s review, one of the main conclusions was that I need some more focus and planning. I’m satisfied because I achieved a fair amount of goals, but I missed many of the optional or less relevant ones. So, thisRead More

2019 resolutions revised

Posted on January 4, 2020

This blog entered a new phase during 2019. I started writing in English and the first post was the new year’s resolutions. Like I did with the previous years, now it’s time to review the goals I set up for myself and evaluate them. I should say that on one side I’m happy because I achieved most of the main goals; however, I did add quite a lot of “side quests” that I miserably failed at. But from failures oneRead More

The Man in the Arena – April 23, 1910

Posted on June 19, 2019

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds;Read More

Human consciousness

Posted on June 13, 2019

“I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, a secretion of sensory experience and feeling programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody’s nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming;Read More

Optimism

Except for the inevitability of death, the fleetingness of love, the deterioration of time and the certainty of forgetting, I am quite optimistic in life. Source [ES] : https://reflexionesdeundiatrece.wordpress.com/

Nothing appears out of the blur. Scientists often say that they stand on the shoulders of Giants. What that means is that we do not perform the basic research every-time we want to light a fire. We do not reinvent the wheel every time we use the bike.
