Ricardo Semler: Radical wisdom for a company, a school, a life

 

What if your job didn’t control your life?

Brazilian CEO Ricardo Semler practices a radical form of corporate democracy, rethinking everything from board meetings to how workers report their vacation days (they don’t have to).

It’s a vision that rewards the wisdom of workers, promotes work-life balance — and leads to some deep insight on what work, and life, is really all about.

Bonus question: What if schools were like this too?

Songwriting with Pat Pattison at Berklee

I just signed up for two song writing classes taught at Berklee. They are free. The course below starts in 5 days. You don’t have to read music or play an instrument for this class. Works for me. “Yay!” he says as he jumps off the cliff hoping to learn how to fly as he is falling.

I Love Being a Dad

I love being a dad

I definitely have a passion for being a dad.

When I raised my son, I stumbled across some powerful parenting principles and a simple system that helped me parent my son with very little stress.

I am sharing the simple system I used in an attempt to pass on what I have learned over the years.

With this easy system, my son never whined, argued, had a meltdown, begged, or misbehaved.

I never had to raise my voice, scream, negotiate, or bribe my son.

There was no willpower tug-of-war, no timeout, and no spanking.

Just a few rules and a very simple system.
