Mutants, we all need to change, mutate for the better or the worse (hopefully the first)
This a side project that I am dabbling with and still brewing in my spare time…
I want to give back, share, collaborate more. But how?
Time is my most precious asset, but I also have another great asset – the power of networking and proactively sharing things… ideas, thoughts, experience, food, drinks, things… a bit of my time, as well…
Soon, hopefully I will share news on this side project that I am developing to give back to the community.
The idea is to promote physical and digital places that can link people that are more knowledgeable in certain fields and that can share that with others.
Mutants – Be, Work, Play, Collaborate, Learn, Teach, Share, Eat, Drink, Do
Education is so important. A lot more than politics… unfortunately in Portugal we are losing this battle… we should focus on deploying a real strategy and less on politics or marketing big plans that are just promises that never see the day of light…
it has helped me fight insomnia, as well 😉 (true story)
One of the best ways to learn is a good conversation.
While there are many advantages to a good conversation, perhaps the best is that you can benefit from the lessons that other people have already paid the price for. Of course, that’s not all. Good conversations can also offer a new way to interpret your past experiences, discover something new, and remind us of something we already know.
A good conversation updates the software in your brain. But not all updates are the same. Learning more isn’t simply a matter of having more conversations, but rather getting more out of each conversation that you are apart of. Deep conversations with ‘people that do’ offer the richest source of learning. Conversations that skim the surface, on the other hand, only offer the illusion of learning.
With that in mind, we’d like to invite you to join us in the top conversations we had on The Knowledge Project in 2020.
It’s time to listen and learn.
