Where is the clapping

 The sign of adulthood is when you are able to solve your own issues and no one is there to congratulate you!

When you are a child, your parents and society congratulate you for the good and mature things you did.

And this gave you a confidence boost. When you are an adult, literally no one cares besides you.

But that is good. This means you already achieved something great.

Now it is the time to change the dialog. Shift the paradigm of I need clapping and acknowledgement by others, to I am capable and confident to do new things.

This narrative is uncomfortable, because suddenly we are being responsible for all the success and failures we bring upon ourself.

Yet, this is a good sign. If you do something amazing and there is no clapping, it means you are a mature person and you can continue doing great things.

You can be your own cheerleader and occasionally when you do something amazing not only for yourself, but for others, this is the time to share it with the world.

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
