A trip to Budapest day 2

 This is the day 2 summary. If you are curious about day 1, you can find it here: Day 1

Today I visited the World Athletics championship, which was hosted by Budapest. I am a person who is not into huge events, but I was impressed by how supportive people were during the event. They cheered the most for their own sports people from Hungary, but there were also support for other athletes.

The more famous they were, the higher the support.

This is one of the takeaway. If you want to build a successful business, once it is done, people will remember your name and will cheer for you, but until this happens, you need to accept the fact that you are one of the many.

After the end of that event, I went for some rest and tried a very touristic burger. I would admit that I knew it won’t be the best burger in town, but their branding was so appealing.

This is another takeaway. Do something different from your competition. Distinguish yourself!

There might be many burger places in Budapest, but this one, the atmosphere and the decoration, was absolutely unique.

And people appreciate that. And they were full.

At night, I enjoyed one of the most spectacular fireworks I had ever seen!

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
