My tips for learning several languages in a particular context.

I’m not the passive type. And if you are reading this, neither are you.

However, the various restrictions and confinements comforted us a little in a new and unusual daily life where passivity was waiting for us, patiently.

Although we all, more or less, fell into this chill trap in the extreme (naively thinking that this period would only last a few weeks), this way of life is not the purpose of the human being.

We desperately need challenges, challenges, projects, and goals to feel fulfilled.

It is with this in mind that I decided to make the most of…


And how to stop this sadistic mental game.

I could be called an expert on the subject, really.

Making movies. Inventing future scenarios from a shaky present.

We invent a frightening sequel, which seems logical to us, based on purely subjective perception. In spite of ourselves, we lock ourselves into our mental straitjacket.

Our hypothetical future seems so obvious to us in the light of events just past that it is difficult to get out of it. Our mind reacts strongly to an overdose of poorly controlled emotions.

This future based on our own assumptions, according to our only point of view, without putting it into perspective, can…


Put your actions in line with your ambition.

These criticisms. These opinions. They impact us much more than we would like to see. Whether they come from our loved ones, our peers, or famous strangers, we receive these criticisms and we ingest them without ever really digesting them. And this, sometimes for the rest of our lives.

Actually, I got the idea to write this article when I was watching the documentary about Michelle Obama. A great lady.

Michelle Obama tells at one point that her father suffers from a hard injustice throughout his life: that of not being able to have access to schools and jobs that…


And “I don’t care” is just denial.

And finally, would we really like to ignore it?

Let’s play the game for a moment. If opinion no longer mattered, we would certainly rejoice in freedom without borders. Let’s try to see this dimension in several aspects.

Let’s dive into a world without judgment.

In the friendly sphere.

Would we really be able to make friends without worrying about the opinions of others? In an optimistic (gullible?) way, one would think that the exchange would focus on other, more fulfilling topics.

But what is an uncritical debate? Without personal opinion?

It seems a bit empty to me.

So I’m afraid that if we…


Essential but not a priority quality.

When I think of a leader, I often think of charismatic people who have the capacity (a kind of power in the end) to guide a group and to make them adhere to his or their ideas. All in a dynamic of sharing and listening of course (otherwise one turns on the concept of the sect… But we won’t polemic on this here).

In reality, I think a lot about the speakers at the TEDx conferences. These people tell us thrilling stories in a limpid way that we hang on their lips. That’s also how I see leaders.

But it…


When you’ve been ghosted both on a sentimental and professional level.

Bad time for dating. Bad time to find work.

It is what it is.

And because I am an optimistic person, I won’t blame the world to put me in that position (even if it clearly plays a sneaky role, damn it). We know the current exogenous facts like our dear healthy crisis that impact both the economical field and people’s mental health. No need to speak for decades about it (the media do it graciously in our place).

My life review at this period of time.

I may be optimistic, but my perspective is not as optimistic as I would have liked.

Let me give you an…


Let’s listen again to the conscience that knows us perfectly

Intuition has never been so important in a crisis context #welcomepandemic. But it has also never been so uncertain. It became more difficult to cross intuition with reason to make up our minds. Complicated to bring this intuition to the fore with the uncertainty of current exogenous facts in the background. And yet…

It is in these moments of insecurity that it is essential to stick ourselves at the famous “why”. We can simply think about:

  • The meaning behind the setting up of your business,
  • The values attached to it.
  • That’s what keeps your personality authentic.

It is (too) easy…


And why are we so receptive to it?

Indifference and attraction.

Don’t lie. We all did it.

To immerse ourselves in this toxic relationship that mixes passivity and selflessness. This latency affects us so much.

I like to draw a parallel between Love and the professional world. I find that there are some similarities at times. Don’t you think so

Indifference as a challenge.

Whether we like it or not, it turns out that we are somewhat dependent on this indifference. Because somewhere, it is as if it is a challenge to be taken up.

We persist in proving to the other (to ourselves?) that we are really worthwhile and that he or she must…


50 of no shade

In a binary world, a question could only be answered favorably or unfavorably. No more full-time I-speak-a-lot-but-I-do-nothing-concrete people!

No nuance. The apology of pragmatism.

What would a fully pragmatic life be like?

Sometimes I dream of a world where I am answered simply, clearly, and with concrete and tangible arguments. Vague and paradoxical answers would be banished.

Sometimes I dream of a “you’re not right for the job” rather than a “the recruitment process can take weeks” (which is actually already over, we deeply know that). We know this technique to be on hand in case the lucky candidate withdraws. It is assumed that people are available forever.


And to feel credible in this position

If like me, you don’t like conflict but find it necessary, I hope you will find yourself in these lines.

Because from my young life experience, I know that repressing states of mind is neither good for ourselves (whether in terms of mental or physical health), nor for the people involved in the debate.

So I focused on how to manage these conflicts rather than running away from them.

Because running away from conflict is to deny the possibilities of solutions that arise from it.

Here is my point of view on people who take on the role of mediator…
