The last moment, the hour or the day before the deadline, should always be free. That’s your buffer zone. That’s your leverage of control – both inside and outside your mind. And the ubiquity of tech has rendered that buffered so thin that it’s bordering non-existence. But it’s up to us to impose to ourselves the discipline to retake it.

The future of our civilisation is not necessarily un dolce far niente for humans while machines do all the work. More likely, it’s a symbiotic future, where human get to do the cooler, more challenging, more value-adding parts of jobs, while machines take care of the rest. Therefore, not being able to interface with machines effectively 20-30 years from now will be the equivalent of illiteracy.

This summer I decided it was high time for slimming down, mostly because I got tired from the simplest things – like going up the stairs for 4 floors. So in the way worthy of a project manager with engineering background, I set an objective, I made a plan and I started tracking the metrics. After all … You cannot manage what you do not measure.

One of my personal projects which had been put on the back burner for to long was publishing a book on Amazon. The somewhat controversial subject is a process-modelling engineer’s view to dating: what metrics to track, what behaviors to expect, what rules of thumb to apply and what action to take.

I wanted to avoid the whole how-to-get-laid-tonight approach altogether, as I believe in dating, as in other aspects of life, a balanced view is preferable to immediate results based on fake assumptions. Under the disclaimer that the stuff presented in the book should not be used as a recipe or as an ultimate truth, I aimed to give the readers some tips, a few new perspectives and some good laughs.

Yes, you should focus on doing one thing (job, project, business) and doing it well. Yes, you should try several times with several approaches before you give up. Patience is a virtue – up to a point – then it becomes pathology.
