Why are we so attracted to bad news?

Why are we so attracted to bad news?

The reason why we look for negative views over transformative stories I’m still dumbfounded by the minuscule focus that has been given to one of the most important topics that should be on everyone’s mind: How to strengthen our immune response. Our attention is unfortunately being bombarded with information that promotes hysteria. The media is cleverly exploiting our genetically hardwire “negative bias”. For as long as we have existed, our tendency has been to pay more attention to threats (and dwell on these events)...

Can you tell the difference between a leader and a manager?

Can you tell the difference between a leader and a manager?

Vulnerability and empathy, the trademarks of natural leaders. Lately, it has become easier to discern leaders at heart from those who are merely bosses. It’s been fascinating to witness how true leaders are exhibiting the qualities that make them so effective at leading: vulnerability and empathy. Obviously, team members need guidance on how to work in this new environment, but the focus on the “how” should not preclude the time that should be spent in allowing them to express how they truly feel. An emotion that is expressed, heard and...

The Gift of the Quarrantine

Practical ways of deepening the connection with your child during confinement For many of the road warriors out there like myself who spend a significant amount of time travelling for business, having been confined in my home for weeks has been an unusual experience. But quite early on during the lockdown, the words of the wizard Gandalf the Grey echoed in my mind: “All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you”. One aspect that I have enjoyed the most during this quarantine is connecting with my children at a much...

Spice up your immune system!

Ramp up your only defence against Covid-19: Your immune system By now you must have read dozens of articles reminding you of the importance of getting restful sleep, exercising and eating a plant-based, whole-foods diet to build up your immune response in case you contract COVID-19 before the vaccine comes out next year. I’d like to share with you additional suggestions that nicely build upon the traditional advice you’ve been exposed to. 1.- Tongue scraping.- Our mouth is the main gateway to our environment, so scraping the tongue daily...

The Pandemic’s Silver Lining

The Pandemic’s Silver Lining

The surprising welcomed repercussion of Covid-19 One of the positive things that came out of the confinement during the pandemic was witnessing the many people that have taken up exercise. Whilst I was cycling around the neighbourhood with my daughter during the weekend, we saw young and older couples, families and individuals of all ages either running, power walking, cycling or just going for a long stroll. We could tell by the disparate levels of fitness and some other tell-tell signs, between those who were reconnecting with their...

It is time to start pretending!

It is time to start pretending!

I’d never thought that I would recommend people to pretend, but today I’ll glorify the art of pretending.   The commute to work has always served as a good mental transition. During this transition from a place of rest and leisure to a full-on work environment, our mind has had the benefit of a commute to create the psychological shift required to properly focus on work.   If you are occasionally working from home, it is important to know that working in bed and/or working in pyjamas doesn’t really set us up psychologically to be at our...

How to Deal with Incompetence

By now, I’m sure you are quite familiar with the psychological phenomenon known as “impostor syndrome”. Also known as the fraud syndrome, this is a condition in which an individual doesn’t integrate their accomplishments and has recurring patterns of fearful thoughts of being exposed as a fraud, despite substantial evidence of their success and competence. But what if those feelings of incompetence are justified? And in spite of evidence to support this incompetence, what if these low performing people carry an...

Taking Back Control of your Day

Taking Back Control of your Day

An event horizon is a notional boundary around a black hole beyond which nothing can escape, not even light. The gravitational force is so strong that the escape speed exceeds the speed of light. It’s the infamous point of no return. Once inside the black hole, you will reach something called a singularity, which is the place where all the matter in a black hole gets crushed into. Email inboxes resemble black holes; usually, when you are replying to your 3rd email, you have crossed the event horizon. The gravitational pull of your inbox is so...

Promoting Creative Disagreement

How comfortable are you with disagreeing with someone? Would you rather avoid conflicting situations altogether? If you are the type of person that shuns away from quarrels and disputes but at the same time is actively seeking for the next creative breakthrough or profound insights, then you should perhaps reframe your perception of conflict. Conflict is defined as a “disagreement or argument, incompatibility between two or more opinions, a state of mind in which a person experiences a clash of opposing feelings or needs.” (for now, lets...

The Simple and Practical Way to Unlock your Potential

Your human potential is coded in your genes and there is a simple way to unlock it. Science is now getting a much clear picture of the inner biological workings of how you can unleash “the giant within” to quote personal development extraordinaire Tony Robbins.

Perhaps you need to become a confident public speaker or a more assertive and empathetic leader, an effort that you...
