I don’t remember how old I was, but standing in the store, I barely stuck out from under the counter. I asked for a bubblegum and the shop assistant, after looking at my precious coins that I’d thrown on the counter, answered that I didn’t have enough money. I did what every little person, who, until recently, could go under the wardrobe standing, would do – I froze. I don’t…

It’s the 21st century. People fly to the moon, other people can watch it on their smartphones. We have large, thin TVs with hundreds of channels in our apartments, and thanks to the Internet – unlimited access to knowledge.

English | Polski I remember when I successfully qualified for an entrepreneurship support program and through it received additional funding to open my own business. My goal was to open a restaurant. On the day the results were announced, I was the happiest man in the world. I spend a long time working on the business plan, on emergency plans and on all the documents required for the funding. I…

Why do people make excuses?

English | Polski “There are no ugly women, only lazy ones”, said Helena Rubinstein, a Polish American philanthropist. Same goes for excuses. We all have great potential, but it’s just easier to make excuses. Apparently, if someone is being chased by an angry bear they can run way beyond their normal abilities, in some cases even run a marathon without having ever participated in one. I don’t necessarily agree with…
