The Truth about Charity

December 20th, 2013

Claire ponders: “So our fun run is simple, for every employee who crosses the finish line, we donate a certain amount to charity depending on the time they ran… that’s all dandy, but I don’t get this whole concept of suffering for charity. I mean, why can’t our company just allocate some money to a […]

The Truth about Trust

December 13th, 2013

Claire says: ” Trust… is like a two way street… everything runs smoothly but if suddenly one lane is closed for maintenance, the whole traffic clogs up… Hmmm… maybe that metaphor wasn’t the best, so let’s use a different one: trust is like a toilet.

The Truth about Spaceships

November 22nd, 2013

Claire says: “I’m very excited to go to space!

Claire says: “We are going to visit prison this weekend to meet with Isobel’s mom! That made me reflect about the concept of freedom. I think we delusion ourselves if we think we live in a free world. And I’m not necessarily talking about the secret internet surveillance or airport controls. Last year there was […]

The Truth about Trick or Treat

November 1st, 2013

Claire says: “A lot of organizations work with the trick or treat principle… First of all they scare everyone into servitude and then if you don’t give them the treats (which is usually your last drop of sweat and tears), they’ll play mean tricks like downgrading your or making you redundant… Like small kids on […]

The Truth about Excuses

October 18th, 2013

Claire says: “A good reason why we should work too much? Not ever have time, be stressed and run around like a headless chicken?! Shutting down the frontal cortex, crappy decision making and self-serving behaviour? There’s no such thing! Only plenty of bad excuses …”
