Since we’re close to the end of the year, I thought it’s a good idea to share some thoughts about it.

It wasn’t as bad as everyone expected. The most important thing is that we are healthy and we should stay this way. I won’t talk much about the pandemic, but I would like to take a moment and pray for those who suffered during this time.

I anticipate an explosion of events after this is over (I believe 2021 is compromised as well): conferences, events, concerts, festivals, etc. …

I’m not a fan of the GO game (I don’t event know I know how its played) or of much of these types of documentaries. Nevertheless, an important milestone have been reach at this point. A milestone that have pushed China (which has taken this to an unimaginable level) and other superpowers to take A.I. advancements seriously.

About ordering online

Do you order online? I do. Most of us do. Are we ordering to many things?

You have to give it to Amazon. They made it so easy now.

I wanted a new room lamp. The default idea was Ikea. I or my wife (or both) were about to embark to the Ikea World amusement park. Then decided to check Amazon, see what it offered, since we pay for Prime (a couple of months ago, where this draft first started, Amazon was not the obvious choice).

Of course the next day and 60$ shorter, we had our…

The 4th and final law of the office from the series — Social change (funny how it took me a year to finish this series — see now the benefit of forcing yourself to write an article each day).

This one did not start as a joke (or by mistake). Social change accelerates when wee see others change.

Or, in other words, lead by example.

Like Jesus told the apostles: Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31

I get that from experience. If you want people to do something specific (that they don’t do)…

I have done this in the past. I force myself to write an article each day for one month. I have been successful so far…

I cheat. By that, I mean I have about half the articles in drafts; for whatever reason they never seen the light of the screen publicly so I take this opportunity to do some cleaning and to finish up some good pieces. There’s also a list of articles that are worth translated into English from my Romanian blog.

This will not be the only place I write. is a blog I started a couple…

The third part of the podcast I was talking about back in November 2018 is the Peter Principle. Dan Couvrette, the CEO of Divorce Marketing Group and the publisher of Divorce Magazine and Family Lawyer Magazine (and also my boss) have — independently of me — talked about this principle in the editorial note of the latest print issue of the Family Lawyer Magazine (pg4).

What is the Peter Principle?

In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to their level of incompetence. If you’re good at your job, your boss notices, promotes you. And then if you’re good at…

I was a good boy last year and Santa has brought me some cool and fresh books. I’ve managed to read some of them and as I do most of the time, I would like to share some thoughts here.

I’m a Marketing Guy for 10+ years (I don’t want to say for how long because it makes me look/sound old). I’ve been following Seth Godin for at least 10 years and he has been one of my mentors for the same time (what, you need to actually know the mentor?).

He’s also a great motivator that inspired me to…

After 7 years from their previous video release, Rammstein, a German hard rock (I prefer not to use heavy metal for them) group get the spotlight again with their controversial new single (as like any single they have released so far) — Deutschland.

You barely hear any kind of guitar on the radio today, not to mention a hard rock riff. This single is most welcomed. …

It sounds better in my native language. A close translation would be “the year doesn't bring what an hour brings”. Even more explicit translation and explanation could be: you can accomplish so much in such little time, but so many could happen in a short period.

You take a long course and read a big book. It takes several months for it/them to finish/complete. Often, they happen at the same time.

That happened to me recently.

I was enrolled in a course on SEMRush’s website. I did the first lesson in September (as soon as it was released). Then I…

A couple of years back I found out about this social media management app called Crowdfire. It was a mix between HootSuite/Buffer and… those Twitter/Instagram spam bots that were popular back in the day (there still are some, but not as many and as useful as they used to be).

It’s a legitimate company, you can find info on their website and all other information (compared to those bot companies that were registered in the Cayman Islands or somewhere fishy).

And the App was amazing — it was different from the HootSuite/Buffer dashboard view, an intuitive workflow that performed really…
