Is it “a” social group? or is it “your” social group? Define your circles

Social groups are something we don’t usually think about. It’s something that’s there or is not. Either way, it’s something we don’t think about because we don’t like to think about it. It’s the magic of “friendship” and social relationships in general we like to believe in: Everything is magical and natural so that we […]

Social groups… Are you part of one?

The most obvious answer could be “Yes”, yet not all of us are part of a group, many can say they are. Even if the group is a friend, it’s a group, right? Well, in a strict way of thinking, you can think of groups as subjective abstract circles, or objectives ones. That is, circles […]

What kind of information are we willing to share with others?

Following a past article (We are much like Venn diagrams), in which we ended with a few conclusions, I’m writing this to complete those ideas with more ideas; this time aiming not to the relationships themselves, but to the inner part of a relationship, and how people organize their own information, just to know which […]

Take a moment to think about moments

Every moment you do something or don’t do something is different. That’s obvious, but what’s not is that we usually don’t think about time as a series of moments. We think about years, about months some times. We think about weeks as a separated time unit, more attached to days than to months or years […]

Productivity: Using the walls

Something I always thought when changing my computer’s wallpaper was the absurd of applying a wallpaper to a desktop. It’s supposed to be a desktop, where you put important things that need to be “on top”, at sight, and not in drawers (which could relate for computer’s folders). Now, taking that out, a computer could […]

Break the rules, not the laws – Monotony

At some points in your life you’re going to realize you’re starting to fall into routines, into monotony. I’ve got to be honest, I can’t follow routines even if I wanted to. I can’t say everyday starting tomorrow I’ll dedicate 3pm-4pm time to study, because I won’t; I can’t break that rule, because my “system” […]
