Follow your dreams, no matter what

I met recently AleŇ° Svoboda who is selected as one of the potential astronauts for the moon mission.

When the moderator asked him what he would say to other people who want to follow in his footsteps, his message was simple: “follow your dreams, no matter what others will say”.

So simple, yet profound. It is a rare job and a rare chance to happen in life. To be selected to go to the moon. How cool is that?

You can be a doctor, lawyer or software developer, but astronaut is something special.

What it is to live your life with a single hope – achieving your dreams?

Maybe we should all try to live more like that. Don’t take me wrong, there is a difference between gambling with your life and chasing your dreams.

Ales is a highly skilled specialist and even if he doesn’t achieve his dreams, he can still find a living. This is the difference between his approach and gambles who hope for the best and go all in, but when it doesn’t work, they lose everything.

 

Based on Ales’s words, the message is clear: follow your dreams, no matter what!

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 x.com 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
