DO YOU TWITTER? TWEET, TWEET, TWEET...

Εικόνα
Andy Warhol once said: "Everyone will have 15 minutes of fame in their lifetime". That the Internet would create some unique methods of personal expression was immediately clear to most of its early adopters. First, there was the Bulletin Board System (BBS) that was used to exchange messages between users, but that was maily a local phenomenon. Next, Internet Forums became the favorite way to express thoughts and show off knowledge on a specific topic. Then, in 1997 Weblogs started to appear. They evolved from online diaries, where people would keep a running account of their personal lives. 
In March of 2006, Evan Williams and his colleagues gave life to Twitter. Initially, the platform was used internally to keep colleagues up to speed on projects status updates. Twitter is a social network and micro blogging platform that allows users to answer a very simple question: "What are you doing?" It does so with 140 character messages. On a recent interview, Williams, t…

HOW COMPANIES CAN GET OUT OF CRISIS

Εικόνα
The big financial crisis has hit the real economy. The diagnosis and forecasts are still ambiguous and far from clear. 
Every company must deal with its own specific problems and face its own risks as they have always done. There are, however, some considerations about mental attitude and short and long term actions in crisis situations that can apply to everyone. There should be optimism in a sense that crisis should be seen as a source of oppportunity and a chance for change. 
On the basis of mental attitude, the crisis of 2008 should induce many to go back to do "simple and clear things". This crisis is a result of stratagems which created a lot of confusion in the distribution of roles, risks, responsibility, contributions and remuneration. 
In the short term, the high degree of uncertainty suggests first that we cannot longer hesitate with respect to the rationalization of processes and the efficient use of personal, material, and financial resources. This is a general …

THE GAP

Εικόνα
The gap that each one of is afraid to fall into. The gap of the fear of what is going to happen tomorrow. Despite the celebration and christmas spirit around us these days, many people are being trapped by psychological problems of what is going to happen to their lives during the new year. Others are looking for the job of their dreams, others looking for a love partner, others for luck or glory or wealth. 
But who are going to be the lucky ones that are going to get what they want? 
The reality is that everything happens for a reason and even if somebody feels like nothing is getting better in his/her life, the universe is still working and it will be working forever to bring us what we really are missing. Just make positive thoughts, visit friends, look up into the sky and make a wish. 
For all of us there is space in love, affection, and good things in life. If you believe that you have lost your way to happiness just pray to God to show you a sign to the right direction. He might no…

PERFECTION...

Εικόνα
Nobody is perfect. Please keep this deeply in your mind. When I was a kid, my parents and tutors used to tell me about my grades at school, my performance on sport activities and my personality. I am sure all of you as a kid have faced such moments.
 As I grew older, I learned that striving for reaching a sense of perfection has been a misguided belief in my life which often leading me down the wrong path. It has made me, through the years, place value on the wrong things. It has also made me not listen to my true self for fear that I would somehow fail in another's eyes. 
Nowadays, the idea of perfection has become very pervasive in our society. The way it begins, how it hurts us and perhaps, even, if it carries a certain benefit. It is true that the idea of being perfect is a must in our society causing stress and feelings of inadequacy. Many of us worry about scarcity. This thrives in a culture where everyone is hyperaware of lack. Everything from safety and love to money and re…

LIFE...OH LIFE.....

Εικόνα
Sometimes in life all of us have made thoughts of how life would be if they have got that job, if they have moved somewhere abroad, if they were married to someone they fell in love with, if they have gone to that party or if they have talked to the person near them that looked so different and so nice. I have caught myself thinking what if I have moved in NYC for job hunting? What if I was still in relationship with my first love? What if I hadn't move from my first job? All of these thoughts come into my mind many times but this is life and I am sure that all of you have already been into that beacause these are human thoughts. However, most of women, because I am one of them, I know that we are doing it, we don't have to think the same thing many times and be miserable. 
All of us have a fate and our inner self knows better than no one else what we really want, desire and think. I am not just a fate believer because I think that we are the ones that build our fate through ou…

REVIVING THE PURPOSE OF LIFE

Εικόνα
What counts most in our lives is the moments with family and friends. I have come across with many people through the journey of life so far and the thing that I found in common to all of them was the stress of what is going to happen tomorrow, how they look to the person they have in front of them, I smell the anxiety and hunger and craving that all people have to create something in this world, to leave something behind as they go away of this life, the yearning to be somebody, this selfishness and egoism ( from the greek word egoismos) conquers and dominates all aspects of life, all thoughts of the inner self. 
As I lie back in front of the fireplace I am trying to recall the happier time of my life...And it is just moments, single moments through the years with my family, my friends, my pets, my job, my interests, my love, my pain, my desires, my dreams and hopes.
 All of us have their ups and downs (as I was decorating the christmas tree today I had instant moments of feeling lonel…

TIPS TO FIGHT LONELINESS AND DEPRESSING FEELINGS DURING YOUR HOLIDAYS...

Εικόνα
Christmas holidays are already here! December entered timidly a few days ago with a touch of cold weather, the first decorations, cookies served at the cafes and christmas songs. 
Traditionally, all of us spend time with our families and friends and share house gatherings with the fireplace burning and the elderly telling stories. Have you ever thought of people that do not have any relatives, or those who need to work hard during the New Year's Eve? 
For those who feel unhappy, depressed, unlucky and lonely, here is a list of ways to fight these negative feelings:
1. Think positive and remember for all of us there is something of better luck at the next corner.
2. Remember that apart from how wealthy someone is the thing that counts is the simplest: A laughter, a patting, a lighting candle, the snow or a kid.
3. Have a walk in the forest or in the park with your dog, just breathing the fresh air.
4. Give hope.
5. Give love as more as you can to people.
6. Be kind and polite and con…

THE FASHION EMPIRE ZARA FIRST THOUGHT TO GIVE THE NAME OF ZORBA TO THE COMPANY AFTER THE 1964 FILM ZORBA THE GREEK

When it came to naming the high street fashion store, Zara was not Amancio Ortega's first choice. When Zara founder Amancio Ortega was searching for a name for his first fashion store in La Coruña back in 1975, he decided upon 'Zorba' after the 1964 film Zorba the Greek. Zara communications director explains to the New York Times: "I don't think they were thinking of making history, just that it was a nice name, but apparently there was a bar that was called the same, Zorba, like two blocks away, and the owner of the bar came and said, 'This is going to confuse things to have two Zorbas.' After this conversation, they just rearranged the letters to see what they could find and they found "Zara". So that's it! 
It is true that behind any success or history there is the greek element... So proud of being Greek! For your information, Amancio Ortega last week named by Bloomberg Markets as the third richest person in the world with a net worth of $…
