Music that Helps Child Development

Music has been an integral part of human life, ever since ancient times. A recent archaeological research has uncovered in southwest Germany what is essentially the earliest documented musical tradition wherein remains of a nearly complete bone flute, i.e. flutes made from bones in the Paleolithic age, were found. This suggests that music might have formed an essential part of entertainment in ancient times and helped build small communities in the growth of civilization. Apart from entertainment, music serves a much greater purpose in our lives today. We have come to realize how human emotions are closely tied to the …continue reading

Is Crowdfunding Making Banks Obsolete?

If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough. Well, they better be big enough, as it has never been a more convenient time to dream big than right now. With the very impressive crowdfunding initiative taking over major parts of the world, most humans could only dream of having such a good opportunity to reach their craziest dream – a creative mind is all you need! While it is more than welcoming for most people throughout the globe, it is definitely not very good news for banks and other financial institutions. Despite the existence of similar …continue reading

Innovation – Inching Towards Better Living

Whether we are business owners, work for a large company, or simply laze around all day, innovation –especially technological- has been playing a major part in improving our lives. While most of us are naturally not innovative and simply live not to fail, a small minority out there have been taught to “think outside the box” and are therefore contributing to a better life for us, usually after several failures of their own. Some may be naturally self-criticizing and take failing as a natural step to learn, the rest of us, the majority, need to be taught how to disconfirm …continue reading

Mobile Marketing vs. SMS Marketing – Don’t jump the gun

Lately, I noticed that there has been a boom in an alternative social platform that attracts the teenage crowd. This platform has evolved in Asia and is growing extremely popular in that market.

Banks, wine and taxi – disruptive innovation for the people

I have been spending a lot of time reading this month. Partly because I have more time but also because I have gained much more joy in reading than I have ever felt before. I would like to share with you a jaw dropping exposé published by the Rolling Stone – The Vampire Squid Strikes Again. Frankly when I read the title, a funny image came to my mind. I imagined a gigantic deep sea squid with fangs holding light sabers in its tentacles. As I started to read the article in detail, the laughter in my head changed into …continue reading

You Created Everything in Your World

Let’s do an experiment. Try to recall the last time you had a disagreement with your significant other. Now, try to remember exactly what happened during the argument. You can ask your partner to recall the same incident and ask him/her to tell you how the conversation / argument went. More often than not, you will find that a mismatch in both of your accounts on the same argument. Some say this is just different interpretation of the same situation. But the question is, why is there such different interpretation. Fact should be fact…right? You see, when we are new …continue reading

Does entrepreneur support really help to create the next big thing?

I’m sure by now you have heard of the simple game, Flappy Bird, that went viral with over million downloads everyday. As expected, articles started flood the internet trying debunk the ‘myth’ of Flappy Bird such as 10 reasons why Flappy Bird is so addictive or why is Flappy Bird so popular?. Frankly with all the speculation that has been going on, no one REALLY knows why. Not even the developer, Dong Nguyen, himself. This app was uploaded to the App Store in May 2013. It didn’t gain any traction until November 2013 when the game simply went viral. The charts …continue reading

Mind Expanding Ideas

There is a saying that curiosity kills the cat. But I strongly believe that without curiosity, there is no discovery. If there is no curiosity, us – homo sapiens, may still be living in a tiny part of the world without venturing further to explore and spread across the planet. One of the greatest visionary of our time once said: “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish” ~ Steve Jobs   This phrase captures the motivation of this blog. Hunger for new opportunities, new ideas and new discovery. Be humble to learn, to think, and to evolve. This blog is intended share new …continue reading
