Team Work portada

Friends at work? Yes, it is possible!

Throughout life we have the opportunity to “taste” different kind of jobs, from the ones that we like more to the ones that we just HAVE to do. And, of course, we have to deal with different kind of people both professionally and personally. Entrepreneurs know very well what means to have a great team to work on their ideas to build a new business from scratch. Teaming up can be a challenge, because not everyone has the same way of working or solving problems.

#ShareYourPassion

Working in summer is not easy. It is not easy ever, to be honest. Especially when the job we have is not the best in the world, it doesn’t make you happy, things are not going well or … just would rather be rich and be lying on the couch all the day, or even better lie on the beach every day of the year . But that, dear #TheNowFamily friends is not true for everyone and there are those who, even though are rich, would not stop working or, rather, inventing…

In #TheNowFamily we know a bit about the meaning of words like invention, creativity and, above all, passion. Without these meaningful words would not have arisen OBLUMI. In today’s post we talk about us, the #OblumiTeam and what does the word passion mean for us.

Boost your creativity, learn to play

“Creativity is intelligence having fun”

Einstein

To a little girl who was 6, during a drawing lesson was asked what she was drawing. The teacher said this girl hardly ever paid attention ever, but in this drawing lesson, she did. The teacher was fascinated. She went over to her, and she said, “What are you drawing?” And the girl said, “I’m drawing a picture of God.” And the teacher said, “But nobody knows what God looks like.” And the girl said, “They will, in a minute.”

This is how Sir Ken Robinson introduces his speech during a TEDx talk, talking about creativity and why the nowadays schools are killing it.  He is one of the most important personalities when talking about creative development and innovation in human beings. He says “Kids are not frightened of being wrong. I don’t mean to say that being wrong is the same thing as being creative. What we do know is, if you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” He continues by saying that by the time kids get adult they loose the capacity of running the risk of being wrong and they stop being creative.

Teaching children emotional intelligence: 9 habits for a greater success in life

“No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Theodore Roosevelt

We are all used to define someone “intelligent” by his/her marks when is a child or by his/her IQ when growing up. This last one became really used during the World War I when two millions of American men were sorted out by the result they realised through an IQ test. A student of this method, Gardner, moved a strong critic towards the above evaluation.

He says: “I want my children to understand the world, but not just because the world is fascinating and the human mind is curious. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place”
