Motivation training session

 Who are the motivation sessions organized by organizations for?

It feels like a propaganda, because their objective is not to listen to what makes people slow and what processes are obsolete. They want you to know that you, the organization, and everyone around you are the best.

Why they serve that purpose?

The delusion is a way cheaper method to “solve” issues than actually solving them.

Organizations don’t want change, even if this is the only thing they talk about. But sometimes when the attrition level is low, they are forced to do something about it, and always the first plan is to introduce some sort of motivation training. Not to solve the issues, but to try to keep problems “out of sight, out of mind”. Only when this plan backfired it will be time to actually force some sort of change in the organization.

Therefore, all the motivation trainings are useless, but needed phase in the organization change and adaptability.

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.

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
