Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Nothingness

What is it? A disturbing feeling? The absence of meaning? Or something else entirely?

Creating out of nothing

Or shall I say “out of boredom.”

For the sake of learning

We should learn for learning sake. Any other reason seems worthless.

The success of normality

”Sabrina” by Nick Drnaso, an American cartoonist and illustrator was the first graphic novel to ever be nominated for the Man Booker British award in English literature. What I found intriguing is the boring look of its drawings.

How’s your year of 2019?

When 2019 began I suggested making it the year or attention and creativity. How’s is it going for you?

You may feel productive, but are you creative?

Being highly productive doesn’t mean being highly creative.

Dead-time

There is no such thing as a dead-time, only a “dead-mind.”

Efficiently Productive

What is it? Every efficiency means what you can do with what you have.

The more you switch

…the more you create.

Finding creativity

The way to move forward and find our creativity is a balanced life between its digital and analog sides. A simple life grounds on the essential feeding our relational self and developing our ability to learn.
