In the summer of 2011 I woke up in the middle of the night experiencing a pain I had never had before. I was quickly transported to the hospital and after a complete checkup I was diagnosed with kidney stones. Ot was a minor occurrence and there was just a tiny 3mm stone looking for its way out.
A couple of days later the journey was over and that was it.
It turns out that riding roller coasters helps people passing their kidney stones. I wish I knew it back then.
Every time I cross the ocean, jetlag hits me hard. The older I get, the harder it hits me. When I can, I schedule a couple of days of buffers before the important meetings, so to adapt to the new time zone.
I was wondering what happens to diplomats, who usually travel on super tight schedule and have important meetings to attend. The Washington Post published and insightful article on this exact matter. Enjoy!
A few months ago I switched all my paper lists to Things, a beautiful app that keeps all my todos across all my devices. It allows to create recurring todos, schedule deadlines, organise projects.
Today I upgraded to the new version, which comes with a set of new exciting features like sub-checklists, headings, calendar integration, etc.
I highly recommend it, it dramatically improved my process and since I started using it for all the things to do, my productivity has improved big times.
I really enjoyed the book “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg. Highly recommended!
If you are looking for an amazing carbonara, follow this recipe. If you are looking for an authentic carbonara, just don’t add the garlic. Seriously, I’m fine with the vegetarian version, but please, no garlic. Please.
