Gratitude is the Key

This year our equivalent of the American Thanksgiving Day took place on October 2. It is not such a big family celebration as in the USA. But for us, there is a different story behind it. As the name suggests, we celebrate it out of gratitude for nature’s gifts at harvest time and, therefore, always in the fall. There is Thanksgiving Sunday when the priest symbolically blesses harvest gifts during Mass. Although we don’t celebrate this day so exuberantly over here, I think it doesn’t hurt to share some necessary thoughts about gratitude again.

The Misinterpretation of Motivation


I often hear about how companies should make it an effort to motivate their employees or to provide conditions to motivate their personnel. Lately, I came across this again and it made me ponder. I think this is a misinterpretation of the meaning of the word “motivation”. Because that way, people are actually manipulated or paid off to do something they don’t want to do. In my opinion, the meaning of the word is used wrongly. Read more ›
