What is the logic of spending more money on expensive items  that get worn only on special occasions that on items that we use/wear everyday?

Curiosity kills a cat every now and then... but it could save... YOU!!

Doing something new every day reduces significantly the risk of Alzheimer by creating new neuronal pathways...
Think of it like cosmetics: if you wait to use them until you need it, then it is probably too late...

What did you do today that REALLY mattered?

Here is an idea:
Every day, find 5 things you can do to make your journey even more meaningful to you and to others...

"Sooner or later we sit down to a banquet of consequences.” Robert Louis Stevenson

Be yourself... everybody else is taken!

Belief makes anything possible

In order to succeed, you must first believe that you can.

The only true limit to your realization of tomorrow will be your doubts of today.
The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life, is the will to try it and the faith to believe that it's possible.

The moment you carry the conviction of belief, in that moment your dream will become reality.
If you think you can, you can.

See what is hidden to others and act upon it

Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

"Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death". Harold Wilson (1916 - 1995)

Zimbabwe-Zambia Bridge, 111 mts of free fall... I wonder why I need to test the quotes I like...


When the sea was calm all ships alike showed mastership in floating.

The reason behind...

The Phoenix bird represents rebirth, the ultimate change. Breaking free, claiming its own power, the Phoenix is the sign of a new beginning.

Society constantly writes scripts for all its members, assigning roles, projecting images, defining and assigning value and identity to every individual.

Culture, group dynamics, politics, old patterns, habits, self limiting beliefs, a challenging environment… are each wielding a pen and attempting to write your story, day by day.

The rebellion against the thought of life as an act of endless compliance became the ashes from which SCRIPT was born.

As a stance against endless repetition, as a righteous claim for empowerment, as an answer to the need of a fair mirror and an outside view to give perspective, as a toolbox, as a network… as a challenging and supportive sparring partner on your way to success.

Change is not easy… but it can be a great ride!

Welcome to the Phoenix Blog...

Recognize both the value of spontaneous opportunities, and careful planning

The early bird might get the worm,
but the second mouse gets the cheese...

Poem "For a Leader"

For a Leader

May you have the grace and wisdom
To act kindly, learning
To distinguish between what is
Personal and what is not.

May you be hospitable to criticism.

May you never put yourself at the center of things.

May you act not from arrogance but out of service.

May you work on yourself
Building up and refining the ways of your mind.

May you learn to cultivate the art of presence
In order to engage with those who meet you.

When someone fails or disappoints you
May the graciousness with which you engage
Be their stairway to renewal and refinement.

May you treasure the gifts of the mind
Through reading and creative thinking
So that you continue to be a servant of the frontier
Where the new will draw its enrichment from the old,
And you never become a functionary.

May you know the wisdom of deep listening,
The healing of wholesome words,
The encouragement of the appreciative gaze,
The decorum of held dignity,
The springtime of the bleak question.

May you have a mind that loves frontiers
So that you can evoke the bright fields
That lie beyond the view of the regular eye.

May you have good friends
To mirror your blind spots.

May leadership be for you
A true adventure of growth.

John O’Donohue
