I once dreamed of a world class education. In my dream I saw: knowledgeable, skillful, passionate and inspiring teachers who wanted me to succeed because they saw I shared their passion as well; it had mix of teaching, coaching and mentoring to help me put the “pieces of the puzzle” into useful form and build my own story; it had practical, current and engaging content; a multi-disciplinary and creative approach; I had insightful discussions with other “students” almost daily, we respected each other; it was very affordable so I didn’t have to finance my life away just to attend it; it was flexible, I could attend classes whenever I wanted or whenever my brain was working at its best; and it had videos, stories from real people like me, cases and other multimedia tools to enhance the experience.

How does 2012 look in the horizon?
I have no idea, don’t have a Crystal Ball, but I got a good feeling about it. Why? For no particular reason. Having said that, I did make a promise to myself: “when I am 34 years old, I am scaling up my passion into a full time venture”. Kind of hoping the universe aligns in my favor. It’s not to much to ask, isn’t it? I have been working hard for over 12 years, so come on universe, let me leap into bigger and more meaningful experiences in 2012. I promise I’ll live up to your expectations. [Read more…]
Do you have an idea or a project you have been “thinking about doing” for a long time, but don’t seem to find time to make it happen?
Do you find yourself thinking that you should be doing something else, but you are not really sure what?
Do you want to contribute to make the world a better place?
Do you want to LEARN a lot in a very short period of time?
Do you often think you need to look for a different job or even change your career for good?
Do you know what you are really PASSIONATE about, but you’re not sure how to make a living out of it?
Are you constantly waiting for something to happen (when I have money I…., when I finish uni I …., when I move from where I live I…, when bla bla bla happens, I … ), before you can actually invest in what you really want to do?
Do you ever wished you had someone to help “unstuck you” or help you get out of the MAZE?
If you answer was YES to any of the questions above, I would like to invite you to kick-start a CREATIVE PARTNERSHIP with me… [Read more…]
I’ve had enough of people who criticize everything and everyone around them. I’ve had enough of skeptics. I’ve had enough of realists’ who believe the world is a mess and there nothing we can do to change it. I’ve had enough of listening people blame politicians, their families, high school teachers, and everyone else they can think of, just so they can feel better about themselves, just so they feel less responsible and accountable. I’ve had enough of over rationalizing things and enough of being over rationalized by others. I’ve had enough of Economic CRISES, HUNGER, UNEMPLOYMENT, CHILD mortality and disparities. I’ve had enough of prejudice and discrimination in every level. I’ve had enough of people who can’t see passed appearance. I’ve had enough of being part of the problem. I’ve had enough of wasting my time. I’ve had enough of knowing what to do one day, but loosing focus on the next. I’ve had enough of people that hate their jobs, but don’t do anything about it. I’ve had and enough of time wasters who can’t commit to anyone and anything. I’ve had enough of promises. I’ve had enough of promising. I’ve had enough of people gossiping around. I’ve had enough of being disorganized. I’ve had enough of conflicts caused simply because no one listens. I’ve had enough of the lack of authenticity in the world. I’ve had enough of being afraid not to have enough money. I’ve had enough of being afraid of not being accepted. I’ve had enough all the S***T that goes on in the world, haven’t you ?
It’s time to EVOLVE, to LET things FLOW, TO GROW and to LEARN. It’s time to allow a bit of serendipity, flexibility, creativity, connectivity, curiosity, kindness and simplicity. Time to live fully, live wider, live bigger and live better.
I am writing this as a way to reach out for those who had enough too, those who WANT CHANGE, those who NEED CHANGE. This a manifesto, a PERSONAL CHANGE MANIFESTO.
The 30/30/30 challenge
I am launching today a personal challenge, which does not only involve me, but involves you too. I can only make it happen if you come along, can’t do it by myself. So, I am reaching out to you!
The challenge is a commitment to find 30 PEOPLE I can help, in 30 DAYS and offer them one hour of coaching each (30 HOURS) in exchange for a $ contribution to KIVA.ORG via “The 30/30/30 Challenge Team” (contributions can be made individually) on KIVA.
Why am I doing this?
My goal is to inspire change by helping at least 30 people re-assess how they are living their lives, help them connect or re-connect with “The Big Picture”, help them “Draw better MAPs” of the future, think more creatively, understand their motives and core beliefs. This is my way of being CONTAGIOUS.
Why should you care?
That is really up to you to decide, but I believe you should! Specially, if like me, YOU HAD ENOUGH!
How much should you contribute to “The 30/30/30 Challenge” Team? (updated on 26/08/11)
When I launched the Challenge, I decided to keep my normal PAYF offer, however, I found that most people did not really know how much to contribute. Hence, I want to simplify the process by establishing that a AU$30.00 contribution IS MORE THAN ENOUGH. You are welcome to do whatever feels right to you though.
So, the question you should ask yourself is, have you had enough? If so, fill the form bellow with your contact details so we can get started!
