Point of view

 The things children find fascinating, adults will find annoying.

The things your manager finds important, you might find it irrelevant.


It is a matter of point of view. But there is an underlying issue with that and it is called power struggle.

When you are an adult, you know where are the boundaries and you know if you do or don't something. There are consequences.

But for children, this is not yet being established.

Children are not naughty, they are just not wired for the consequences and to survive the real world, because their brains are not developed yet.

This means that we need to introduce the level of consequences by the age level of the child. Don't punish them too hard for things they are not able to understand.

It takes time to create a human, but also it takes time to grow your own team member to be excellent.

The difference is you can choose who to hire, but you can't choose your children.

This might mean you must try to adopt to their point of view and grow them to reach out to the desired one.

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
