Quote of the day

Lithuanian cuties spend most of their life on beauty, while the guys try all and everything to achieve and show the status symbols that the above mentioned cuties are in fact looking for. Let them be if it makes them happy ...

The movie festival

The trip
Taking Thursday and Friday off, I travelled overnight to Łodz to see my girl. Due to a small Sobieski mandarinai party with my Slovenian friends prior to the trip, I got easily in contact with other people on the bus. An American who visited his girl in Wroclaw, a guy from New Zealand who needed to travel out of the country to renew his Visa, and a girl who was about to visit her boyfriend in Warsaw. It turned out that we have pretty similar plans. Rather unusual, I thought having missed the train, but it tunred out that I was looking at the phone set to Lithuanian time, as a friendly senior gave me the hint.

After arrival, some girl came running by and ran into my arms, it was Ewa the crazy girl I met on the German-Polish language camp in the summer. I almost fell down :-)
We went to the great theater where we would meet Marta and go for a coffee together. After check-in to her friends' appartment we went to the first movie where I of course directly had to meet her parents. We pretty much liked each other :-)
In this way we spend a few days watching some nice movies, simply grasping the flair of the festival.

Things do not only change quickly in Lithuania but also in Poland. Marta's best friend would host a party and we were invited, so we went. We like traveling together, as we end up having loads of time to kill, which we usually fill with some interesting conversations, at least I hope they were. In addition we also studied some German and she is progressing very well.
Finally arriving in Poznań I felt home of course. We went for the party and I was introduced to her study mates, some of them who are looking for her. When she was talking to her friend, I would not have to sit around alone for a long time. A girl came buy and started asking me in Polish what I am doing on that party. She also asked if I was invited by the host of the party or his girlfriend ... I calmly explained her that the host's supposed girlfriend is actually my one, obviously surprised she left immediatly.

All in all we had a great time, I travelled back next day, everything went fine and I arrived safe and on time in Vilnius.

The ability to adapt

My ability to adapt goes that far, that only in an environment of high performance I will be a high performer also. On the contrary this means that in an underperforming corporate culture I will team up to underperform. That also explains why you should start your business in a very competitive environment to be good at it.

Lets go where the high performers are ...

How global brands influence our life

"People may love or hate global companies, but they can't ignore them as they have a powerful impact on people's life as well as the welfare of nations, and the planet itself."

People from different cultural background with often conflicting viewpoints, participate in a global conversation where brands represent the only shared symbols. Not surprisingly do consumers ascribe certain characteristics to global brands and use those attributes as criteria while making purchasing decisions.

Statistics is very easy once everything falls into place, but before that enlightment occurs it all seems hopelessly difficult.

Some quotations

"Genuine love usually creates feelings of trust, calmness, contentment, happiness and security."

"I honestly don't think life has to be about the 9 to 5. The people who do the 9 to 5 have allowed themselves to do the 9 to 5."

"People are usually single not because they've not met the right person, but because they are in recovery from their childhood. It is a process, like grief is a process."

"Three is rarely a good number, to be honest, when one is a single girl and the other two are married."

"A family is as unhappy as its unhappiest member. your 'problem child' may be just the symbol of all your problems, and a magnificent distraction from them."

"After three years of marriage I don't want to sleep with my husband any more. It's a nightmare because I really love him and we have a gorgeous life together, we're incredibly close, we do loads of things together and we're each other's best friends! Some people, even when they very much wanted to get married, feel trapped when they have a ring on their finger. The problem with this is when two become one there is no longer any distance between them. And desire thrives on distance. It loves otherness. It flourishes on mystery. It's great being married to your best friend, but you lose your lover. The experience of love is an experience of security, of predictability, of safety. Eroticism thrives on the unknown and the mysterious, on the unexpected. Perhaps you should put some space between you? That way you'll get back the distance that stops you taking your husband for granted."

"Anyone who becomes an expert in psychology is really seeking help for themselves. I suspect your wife sets herself up as all-powerful because deep down she feels so insecure. The answer is to fill the lack: give the person the love and security that they need."

"Being with someone who refuses to see your point of view is very distressing - however wonderful such people can be."

"No woman wants a man who always gives in."

"You live in a foreign country and are in control of almost nothing."

"Many, many people have relationships based on the externals: money, beauty, success. Perhaps a larger part of you wants a relationship based on those different things: trust, true connection, integrity. Who is to say which you want most?"

"The other day, I asked him how he felt about me. He shrugged and said: "You're my wife.
We believe that everyone has a profound emotional core: that their true self is there to be discovered. However, many people are just straightforward. They have no deep emotional core."

"husbands do not grow on trees."

"I think you are racked by growing pains. After so much freedom, difficulty, adventure, it feels strange, almost stifling to experience security, stillness, love. To be in one place. To stay still. To not be distracted.

But stay with it. Let the feelings come. Let them go, too, as they will."

"Swimming at a different pace from other people is hard, until you realise the stream never flows at the same pace for long. One day you are ahead of the other fish, the next behind, and the next in a swarm glittering in the sun."

"The foundation of effective leadership is thinking through the organization's mission, defining it and establishing it, clearly and visibly. The leader sets the goals, sets the priorities, and sets and maintains the standards."

"The purpose of a business is to generate customers, only two functions do this: marketing and innovation."
