One lesson learned, One Life…
Our lives are made of stories, this blog is a story and all civilizations are based on stories.
Everybody loves a story. Storytelling raised every single one of us and helped us to grow-up. Like every one of you I love to hear, read, watch and experience stories. I like to tell stories too.
Since the early ages, the oral tradition is at the heart of storytelling. Today more than ever, the concepts of this tradition remain the same. And those concepts are more impactful than ever based on the ability for each of us to deliver and spread our stories with the use of social-media.
In the past, it took years for a tale to be spread, told, reframed, reimagined, reinvented. Sometimes it took many generations, many civilizations for it to become a tradition and just as much time to eventually be forgotten.
Social-media offers an easy way to spread your story. Unfortunately, the cycles of the past are significantly shorter. Where it took a lifetime for a story to become well known, we’re now able to create major buzz in less than a day. This also means our words can be forgotten by the next day.

Let’s be excessive. Sometimes I can be a bit Obsessive Compulsive… but I know how to pace myself.
Yes, I have to admit that I love to be organized. Either in my job or in my life I love a sense of order, cleanliness, simplicity and easy access to the information or objects that I need. It helps me to get things done and to stay focused. I love art and beauty too and the act of creation sometimes has to be messy.
Being organized is a full time job. It easily can become burdensome, and requires dedication and hard work. You can’t be lazy! To master the art, you have to rapidly learn the skills required or you’ll quickly get overwhelmed. And at some point, you have to learn to delegate even if you fear that the end result won’t necessarily be as well executed as that you could achieve if you did it yourself. The important thing is to have confidence in your ability to teach someone the proper and expected way to do the task, and to understand that people can learn – and surpass – your expectations.
