Whenever I feel confused and overwhelmed, I like to keep things in perspective. And the truth is, this is the best confused and overwhelmed state than I have ever been in. Staying present and sorta-self-compassionate in the middle of an emotional turmoil is the single most healthy response I ever managed to achieve.
2018 was for me a year of intense growth, but I got to create much less than I consumed. This year, I plan to turn these proportions around by publishing something on my blog every day, no matter how small. If that sounds like something you always wanted to try, feel free to join me and my friends in the challenge.
Imagine you woke up one day, and everyone you met, saw, or interacted with was your very best friend. Not a good friend you’re happy to catch up with over coffee to share some laughs and have fun. No, like the best friend ever, the one that’s genuinely excited to see you, hug you, and […]
A few months ago I took the challenge to teach deep, technical troubleshooting to anyone who’s interested. So far in my team, only the folks with some coding background worked on complex technical stuff. Nobody ever taught us to troubleshoot, we kinda learned it as a side effect of coding, and trying to fix our […]

– This moon is shit – said someone at a party last night. – It’s not even an accurate representation of the terrain. – Yeah, I see what you mean. – I said. – That’s 3D printing with a light inside, so they had to add an extra layer for the basins to make them dark, […]
If I were to judge 2017 by the resolutions I made in the first week, I should probably consider it a failure. Last year, I gave up on ambitious New Year plans and committed myself to just 3 basic things – cooking, blogging, and working out. It turns out, New Year’s resolutions are another thing I […]
Excuse me, Sir, do you have a spare moment to discuss the meaning of the Universe? It may sound funny, but I’d rather talk about that, than about politics, TV shows, or sports. For the most of my life I was seriously involved in religious communities, and a big part of who I am now was […]
So you just found out that Happiness Engineering is an actual job. You always thought customer support is all about scary call centers, but then you met some folks who do this and have fun. You might have heard some stories that sounded too good to be true, and then became jealous when they turned […]
