The freedom paradox

In the highlight of the Turkish election, there is one very important question we need to ask ourselves.

What makes us what to support autocratic rulers?

Does knowing that someone with an absolute power “protecting us” make us feel safe?

Or is there a real democracy and is our choice really worth something?

Many leaders want us to believe that voting is important. That vote actually matters.

But what if it doesn’t matter? What if all the things we vote for go to the same people but with different faces and names?

We have done many things in the name of our fate. We fly into the sky; we went to the moon; we invented unimaginable wonders.

So maybe having a fate and believing in the impossible is the only way to go.

 

Even if that impossible is the democracy itself.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations
