Algimantas Časas on Is your idea worth exploring?Founder at sustainable watch bands www.someloops.comabout 2 months ago
Why you should share your ideas with as many people as possible? When you came up with an idea you came with it from your own perspective. Closed environment is challenging for an idea to be as competitive as possible with good go to market strategy. Having feedback about it from as many people as possible (preferably live conversations) is good though game to check or adapt that idea before even starting to test the market. I do believe idea is as important as execution. After gathering feedback you will be able gather feedback on: - weather you communicate it clearly - problem haven't been solved in other way - does the problem exists - what is most lean approach in validating it - after what point it can be profitable - do you have time and persistence to develop it - what partners could be good for it - what is your core motivation in pursuing it You will save lot of time and effort making it the most efficient way possible by gathering knowledge from other people. Should you be afraid of sharing your idea then just start doing it and you will figure out the rest later.

Wild times call for wild books. Since Mr. President has a certain obsession with post office, I thought, it might be a good time to read “Post office” by Bukowski. If the rent is due and you have no idea what to do, this is The Book 📖 It explores the depth of desperation and provides a glimpse of hope that people are able to withstand just about anything. Even a dull and mind-numbing shifts in post office. And still manage to become the world famous writer. Hate your job? 🙄 Bukowski did hate his for sure! But in the end, it was worth it as he succeeded in writing an awesome ode to all the most horrible jobs in the planet. Enjoy with nice stiff drink and let me know what you think 🍺🍷 Please comment 👇👇👇to let me know what kind of books you are looking for or request a Talk in my profile 👌

Trends shift, and today, 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 lovers are more advantageous than ever as new finishes, textures and pieces of furniture emerge to satisfy our cravings. 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 is timeless, just like white, but I find it cozier: 🌚•○●● 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 Interiors aren't scary at all! In fact, black, dark grey and grey colours have a healing and soothing effect on your eyes.👀 I can't stress enough how essential it is for a modern person stuck in front of a screen for 16h on a daily basis. 🌚•●• Besides, 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 interiors emphasize the great view you got behind your windows. If you have one, then probably this is exactly what you bought that house for with plenty of natural light to experiment with. That said, let you dark walls enframe that beautiful view. 🌚○• To me, personally, 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 stimulates imagination. Have you ever managed to get inspired while looking at the white piece of paper? All I see is emptiness... However, whenever I divert my eyes to black, I see depth, which takes me on the journey to explore, just as if it would be a voyage to space... 🌚●○• In fact, other colours look much brighter next to the dark background. But, remember, if there's no light, there's no black or white. •°○●🌚 In addition, variety of different textures may create stunning effects, even if paired with single colour only, which, to me, would be simply 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐, as I find it both dramatic and cosy at the same time! And what about you, are you in favor or against 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 interiors?🌚

Nassim Nicholas Taleb on how we tend to reduce knowledge by narrating it: "Both the artistic and scientific enterprises are the product of our need to reduce dimensions and inflict order on things. Think of the world around you, laden with trillions of details. Try to describe it and you will find yourself tempted to weave a thread into what you are saying. Narratives spare us from complexity of the world and shield us from its randomness. Myths impart order into disorder of human perception and the perceived chaos of human experience. " Now this applies to all of us, but some can handle the unknown better than others. And... There is a test to measure the ability to survive in uncertainty. Cognitive closure test would help you to identify your relationship with uncertainty. Would you like to try the test?

Could you tell apart 𝓘𝓽𝓪𝓵𝓲𝓪𝓷 interior from Contemporary or Modern?🤔 Probably not, although they look almost the same, except for those trivial details that make them what they are. In fact, those details tell 𝓼𝓽𝓸𝓻𝓲𝓮𝓼 of how that style came to exist and if you can read one, by simply observing the space, - you can tell the style. Let me tell you the story of an Italian one... I♥t♥a♥l♥i♥a♥n style ۩ First of all, imagine a big, friendly and welcoming Italian family with both - nuclear and extended - families living under the same roof. The fisrt thing that springs to your mind is big 𝓼𝓹𝓪𝓬𝓮, our first main factor in this style, isn't it? ۩ Now, let's imagine their plentiful dinners. They'll require 𝓱𝓾𝓰𝓮 𝓴𝓲𝓽𝓬𝓱𝓮𝓷𝓼 in light colours, in order to not burden the atmosphere, but a dark wooden table to emphasize the value of food. ۩ How about their cosy movie nights? We'll need to add 𝓹𝓻𝓪𝓬𝓽𝓲𝓬𝓪𝓵 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓯𝓾𝓷𝓬𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓪𝓵 sofas to make everyone feel comfortable. By adding opposite colours to the walls we will, also, create a valuable 𝓬𝓸𝓷𝓽𝓻𝓪𝓼𝓽 to the Italians. Because South and North are just like Day and Night! ۩ Oh, and 𝓽𝓻𝓪𝓭𝓲𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓼 ! Italians value traditions foremost! You'll find them in decorative tiles, mosaics, partitions and family valuables. Have you imagined the story in your head? If yes, then it will linger forever, aiding you to recognize the style and it's values. 𝓘 𝓽𝓮𝓵𝓵 𝓼𝓽𝓸𝓻𝓲𝓮𝓼 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓘𝓭𝓮𝓪𝓼 𝔀𝓲𝓽𝓱 𝓶𝔂 𝓭𝓮𝓼𝓲𝓰𝓷𝓼. Does your interior tell a story? If not, contact me❣ 𝓐 𝓹𝓻𝓮𝓼𝓽𝓸 𝓪𝓵𝓵𝓸𝓻𝓪! P.S. In the picture you can see Albedo design furniture, one which represents the Italian style in the modern way.

Lina Linkeviciute on How To Provoke Renaissance In Your Activity ?Theatre Director [email protected] Paintings/Luxury Business Professional2 days ago
If you want to revive, renew and reinvent your activity wouldn’t it be handy to have an INNOVATION MANAGER? Just as even the most expert surgeon can’t operate on himself, you need someone with an outside perspective. A fresh pair of eyes and new brain can work wonders. By giving the doctor your trust and complete information, you’re on the way to being cured. Every case is different, and you need not only deep experience of different kinds of innovation techniques, but also be able to gauge how it will impact your specific organization. What kind of person becomes an INNOVATION MANAGER? Usually they are generalists rather than specialists. These people can fit for so many different positions because they bring a wide-angle lens to a problem that a normal employee would just bring a close up view for. The best example is the main character from a TV series “Pretender”, Jarod who can quickly master complex skill sets to successfully impersonate any profession. It sounds unbelievable but these kinds of people really exist and can create huge benefits for those who are looking for effective innovations. How does an INNOVATION MANAGER Operate? Studies indicate that our ability to think creatively comes one-third from genetics; but two-thirds of the innovation skill set comes through LEARNING and UNDERSTANDING different skills then PRACTICING, EXPERIMENTING and at the end ASSOCIATING them. So, an INNOVATION MANAGER will come to your “home” – company, he is going to to observe everything like an anthropologist or social scientist. He carefully looks for small behavioral details—in the activities of customers, suppliers, and even cleaning ladies of your office—in order to gain insights about new ways of doing things. Then he is going to talk to as many team members as possible, including an engineer, a stay-at-home dad, and a designer to identify what kind of innovation could benefit your business or organization. The most important role of INNOVATION MANAGER is to find THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. Is it a new team? Is it a management technique? Is it a product? Is it service offer? Is it a marketing campaign? Is it a communication campaign? Is it long-term vision? Is it turnover? Is it a leadership skill? Is it the atmosphere? Is it meaning of work? Is it the engineers? Is it the front-line workers? Is it the office? Is it the motivation? Is it the general mood? Is it clients service? Is it proceeding? Is it logistics? What is it? And after: ‘If we did this, what would happen?’” Bringing all the team together, mixing them with new professionals from outside, asking to imagine a completely different alternative can lead to truly original insights. In these ways INNOVATION MANAGER will find the ANSWERS together with the team and will develop the creative spark in everyone. The best historical example is the “Medici effect,” referring to the creative explosion in Florence when the Medici family as “INNOVATION MANAGER” of that time brought together people from a wide range of disciplines—sculptors, scientists, poets, philosophers, painters, and architects. As these individuals connected, new ideas blossomed at the intersections of their respective fields, thereby spawning the Renaissance, one of the most inventive eras in history. If you want a Renaissance in your business – just reserve a call :)

Gabija Grušaitė on Managing your career as an artistAuthor of Stasys Šaltoka, Co-Founder of Qoorio & Vieta3 months ago
Why artists are poor? I have received quite a few talk requests here on Qoorio from young people aspiring to create. One of the most pressing question for young creative is the managment of time, since most juggle between jobs and projects trying to survive and practise art at the same time. There is no easy answer to this question as we are products of our society, shaped by shared values, public policies and peer pressure. This is an interesting interview exploring the subject of art funding, poverty among creators and public notion on what is good art.

1 week with no social media: So here it is, my social media fast has begun ... and it is hard to completly be off!! I started at 60% off, now I am at 90% off. Why not go 100% off? Work. I found myself answering some messages, going to facebook for creating the private group coaching for work, instgram to screen shot one of my client to put on my portfolio... Not the social media fast I expected. The objective is to really let go of it this week. However, here are the short term impact: 1. Several Times I have found myself looking for IG on my phone, I was amazed that it was an automatic response to boredom. 2. My head feels less full of "have to post" thoughts. 3. I feel less anxiety related to "subscribers expectations" 4. More time to think. 5. I realized that I was not suffering from FOMO ( fear of missing out) The reason I am doing this fast is to recharge and have more time to strategize for the priority and higher value work. This week was ok, but can go better. See you in a week for another update. 😉

The Story About The Old and Creative Man Once upon a time, there was a young man, who couldn’t believe in his creative capacities. One day he met an old man and asked him “Can I become more creative, if I am not gifted?” The old man explained, “If you have a brain, you are creative. Anyone can choose to develop this skill. “ The young man asked again, but "I understand your point, many people have some small inspirations but so few make something big enough to change the world. Why do so many people choose the same life day after day, doing their tasks if they have creativity within them? The old man smiled: "Creativity is the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity involves two processes: THINKING, then PRODUCING. If you have ideas but don’t act on them, you are imaginative but not creative. The young man got very interested and continued asking, "But in so many parts of life we have no freedom and have to follow orders and produce results as expected. For example, if we are not technology geniuses, how can we be creative in business? The old man whispered: You are creative in business when you connect dots which are meaningful to people. For example: Looking for friends + Sharing life experiences + Social media = you get Facebook Cheap + Clothes + Social media = you get Vinted Knowledge + Sharing + Social media = you get Qoorio The young man was absolutely inspired and shouted excitedly, "How can I become more creative?" The old man answered: You should spent a lifetime exploring new and unrelated things. You should collect as many new experiences and knowledge as you can in order to master association. You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever…. What did the old man have in his mind?

The old man think of creating a better generation of people who are better then before, by collecting all data, in one place and let them learning from there. We may not have the expertise, but others do have, So we just have to connect the dots, have problem, solve problem, and not create it. Life is short, by the time you know it's already few years.

15 days of Social Media Fast : I have heard from many people I admire that as an entrepreneur you need your thinking time. To free my mind and my daily schedule, I decided for june to do a Social Media Fast and documenting the process. Results for this week: 1. Mind a lot less full of stuff 2. More focused on what matters for my business 3. Some breakthroughs 4. More present with people around me, as I don't really ise my phone when I am with people. 5. Confirming that I am in control 6. Still having automatic reaction to check my phone Again, for work I am sometimes required to check my social media..so I can't seem to be 100% off. It has become part of my life and as long as I have an internet connection, I still use my phone ... 🧘‍♀️

Going off Social Media for 1 Month So this is the decision I took for this June. Why? Productivity, clarity, Self-Awareness. I realized that I was not having the results I wanted for my life and that I was spending too much in non priority stuff... I need time for strategy and social media or being busy busy busy does not mean productivity as I thought. I am documenting this journey and Qoorio will be part of the process. Recognizing distraction and reflecting on my actions is easy today because I let go of my ego...

All my life, I have been surrounded by stories. When I was little, my mother created her own stories with my toys every night. When I got older, I was very lucky to have fantastic literature teacher who nurtured my love of reading and I read all the books from my school library. Afterwards, I studied theater directing and the most famous and classical stories have been the foundation of all artistic projects I have built. I later studied luxury marketing in France, where I have learned how storytelling is important to create unique and luxurious business models. That’s how I created the story for my own business called Timeless Paintings. In the last 7 years, I have been part of a private Parisian book club and continue to enjoying analysing the best stories. Once I even became a muse for the writer named Joe McMahon as he gave my name to his main character of his second book "The Fourth Stage ». He even asked my permission ! To be honest, my life is like a Big Story. However, the great storytellers know how to move from a realistic version to a higher level to impress their audience. Usually, they apply these 6 rules : https://medium.com/@Brian_G_Peters/6-rules-of-great-storytelling-as-told-by-pixar-fcc6ae225f50

Ng Ke Ning on Know your strengthForex Trader | Introducer Broker3 months ago
Three ways to identify your trading strengths: 1. Review your trading journals Review your trading logs and pinpoint those instances where you think you performed well. Identify your top ten most profitable trades and take note of the following: Which pairs did you trade? Did you stick to your trading plan? Did you base them solely on technicals, fundamentals, or were they a combination of both? How long did you hold on to your trades? 2. List down your strengths as a trader Try to identify your top five: creativity, curiosity, open-mindedness, love of learning, wisdom, bravery, persistence, integrity, vitality, love, kindness, social intelligence, citizenship, fairness, leadership, forgiveness, modesty, prudence, self-control, appreciation of beauty, gratitude, optimism, humor, spirituality. Done? Now what I want you to do is think of SPECIFIC ways how you could utilize them in your daily trading. For example, I ranked the persistency of learning as my biggest strength. I think I can utilize this more by studying different systems and by reading more books on forex trading. 3. Ask for other people’s opinions Although self-reflection is helpful, we may overlook a few traits that other people can easily identify in us. So take the time to ask for outside opinion. It is important that you compile their input and compare them to your own list. You might be surprised to see how other people perceive you.

Lina Linkeviciute on Building Your StoryTheatre Director [email protected] Paintings/Luxury Business Professionalabout 1 month ago
Is STORYTELLING really the most powerful tool of all?  In 2009, a journalist by the name Rob Walker began an epic journey of discovery. He wanted to find out for himself if it is really true. He started his experiments by buying 200 objects from eBay. On average, each item cost just $1 ! Then he called 200 authors and he asked them, “Would you like to be part of a study on significant objects? Will you participate by writing a story about something I bought on eBay?” Each of the 200 authors said “YES!” So he had 200 objects and 200 stories. He then put each of the items back on eBay. One of them was a beautiful horsehead- yes- the head of a real horse. He bought it for 99 cents. With the story added, he resold the item for $62.95! …just a small increase of more than 6000% So the journalist who bought 200 objects for a total of $129, sold all objects with their stories for $8000!!!   I can do the job of 200 authors by creating your book’s, your company’s, your product’s or your Qoorio profile's story structure plan.     How I do it?    In order to create effective stories, you have to be surrounded by people and their stories, have a great capacity for empathy and understand human emotions, motivations, and psychology, and shape them into a logical sequence of events to create a story arc.   It might sound difficult, but for me it’s like 2 times 2 😊 I’ve used stories to create value for my own commercial practice and now I’d like to share this special talent with you. With The Right Story, The Sky Is The Limit!!!
