About handling disagreements.

There will be always a disagreement between different people. And this is fundamental to us. We see the things differently; we see the priority differently and so on.

How can we shift from the things we disagree to the things that are the most important to us?

This is a core question in the art of decision making.

Many people ask me how to proceed when a big argument comes up?

And I don’t like this question so much, because you should have already seen where the discussion is leading to.

You should have already discussed the minor disagreement and shift the discussions on the things you, your partner, your co-worker or your business partner want to do.

If you end up with a big conflict, it is a little too late to shift the focus. In this stage, you need to focus on damage control and compromises.

Sometimes it is not possible and then you need to decide if you want to separate or you will need to negotiate a different relationship.

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.

 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
