Reward Behaviour, Not Milestones

I was reading recently some article or book about getting off your ass and doing shit. And I remember thinking this: Reward each action you take. Or, better said, reward behaviour. It basically means that whenever you choose a target or a goal, you define the actions you need to take to get you there […]

The Price of Success

Scott Adams once wrote: “One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard goes something like this: If you want success, figure out the price, then pay it. It sounds trivial and obvious, but if you unpack the idea it has extraordinary power.” Good quote. From The Psychology of Money.

The Defiant Ones

I just finished watching The Defiant Ones on Netflix. What a great documentary! When I started watching it, I didn’t expect to be so drawn in. But it’s wonderfully filmed and the story of the business of gansgsta rap and Beats headphones is mesmerizing. I always knew of Dre as a rapper, but now I […]

Using an iPad Pro as a laptop replacement

For the last 6 months or so I found myself developing a new, interesting habit. Whenever I sat on the couch watching a movie, a football match, a tennis match or anything passive enough, I’d want the iPad next to me, as the device to do things on. Until then, the devices I prefered were […]

Shitfaced

No, it’s not me. I rarely, if ever, drink alcohol. But I just found out the history of the word and it’s quite funny :)) It seems like the word shitfaced, as we know it (meaning drunk off your ass) appeared back in the day, in Scotland. Before they had any toilets, they used to […]

Tea and Milk

Over the last 6 years, since Ireland is an integral part of my life, I learned to love drinking tea. Combined with milk, as it should be. Today, while drinking another tea pot filled to the top, I wondered: do I really like tea or am I just using this as a pretense to drink […]

Early Stage Investing is about Trust

I’m surprised how many early-stage entrepreneurs forget that raising money at this moment in their company’s life is all about trust. You don’t have numbers to show, all you have is a story and potential. So how come most of the entrepreneurs don’t try anything to establish trust in the relationships they want to build? […]

Books I Read in 2017 – The CEO Library Podcast

At the beginning of December, we launched a podcast at The CEO Library. Well, the last episode we recorded, the fourth, was about the books we’ve read in 2017. The best books, the worst and some in between. Just to give you a taste, the best book I read was, I think, The Hard Thing […]

Add Favicons to Safari on MacOS

I dislike Chrome more and more every day. The memory issues, the fact that when it comes back from sleep the extensions stop working… What stopped me from using Safari more is, among other things, not having favicons on the tabs. When you are working with multiple tabs it’s a lot easier to use the […]

The CEO Library Story – Months #2 & #3

I’ve missed the monthly update on The CEO Library. I have a good reason, though :) I’ve been in the US for several weeks giving a helping hand to FreeBusy, one of the companies I invested in. As an offtopic, go and test their product if you’re frustrated with the back and forth of emails […]
