Too shy to talk

Too shy to talk

Fear holds us back from forging a bond. People tend to choose to speak to people through emails and text because they feel that actually talking to them would be awkward and that they could be misunderstood.

However experiments show surprising results: "People reported forming a "significantly stronger bond with their old friend on the phone versus email, and they did not feel more awkward".

Changes to the workflow

  • 42% of Americans aged 20-64 earning more than $20,000 were working from home full-time in May 2020.
  • However, the lack of communication and collaboration are made known to be the biggest challenges of remote workers.

The secret to humans' intelligence

As unreal as it may seem, humans' intelligence is related to their birth. The growth in intelligence is very often associated to a an increase in brain size. The increase in brain size was only possible because there was also an increase in women's pelvis: the bigger the baby's brain, the bigger the mother's pelvis should be. Therefore, the women's role in the growth of humans' intelligence is often underestimated.

The development of human intelligence

Babies are born being able to develop into smarter human beings. The lifelong learning process is what allows us all to get to know things from all fields, to master topics influenced more or less by our environment. Furthermore, the fact that we are not born geniuses enables us to adjust to every possible environment. What is the most amazing, in this story, is the fact that all this process has as starting point our mother's pelvis, which set the constraint of how big our brain should be at our very birth.

The Fresh Start Effect

The Fresh Start Effect

During the new year, our birthday or even the start of a school year, most of us have a feeling of a fresh start, a new beginning.

These 'fresh start' moments provide us with a temporary motivation to pursue our goals.

Unrealistic and Sudden Goals

We decide to suddenly start to follow our new daily routine, incorrectly assuming that suddenly we have changed, and are now a completely different and new person.

It is unrealistic to suddenly change from today to tomorrow; it's better to change in a gradual manner.

SMART Goals are Not Smart

Most of the books dealing with goal-setting talk about S.M.A.R.T. goal framework - goals that are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound.

While this is a good start, being time-bound in our new self-commitments has its drawbacks.
