Key Ideas

Carpe diem

One lesson everybody comes to learn sooner or later in life is that life ends, we all die. Through the death of a beloved one or just by hearing news on unknown people's death, this is the one topic that always stays stuck to our brain. However, being alive here and now does matter and a lot: therefore, try living your life through good and bad and enjoy it as much as you can, as you never know when everything is over.

Change is inevitable

Change scares us, almost always: not knowing how a new chapter of our life will end up feeling like can really lead to feelings of distress. However, change brings out, most often, evolution. Embracing change can prove to be the best thing you have ever done, as growth is seldom possible without change.

It’s impossible to think about risk and opportunity without a reference point. And ours is at most incomplete (if not totally wrong).
