indoctrination, I noticed something interesting.
Perhaps I have an excess of confidence on humanity, and it is true that laziness can prevent us for doing so (double-check). But I am sure that when something rings a bell (in the sense of feeling that something is not according with your knowledge or experience) while listening or reading this kind of conferences, at least the listener or reader doesn´t use that information as if it were true instead of an opinion of a speaker.

Dan Ariely: What makes us feel good about our work?
I learned some years ago, at my business school, a more solid theory on motivation. There are three different levels of motivation and each of it has an accordingly lasting on time: short term motivation is extrinsic motivation, (money, or material things) medium-term motivation called intrinsic, comes from things that give me prestige, self-esteem, confidence or achievement, sense of belonging to a group, etc. (according with the two top parts of Maslow´s hierarchy of needs piramid) and very long lasting motivation: transcendental: achieved only by giving myself to myself the sense of my life or work: serve another's, make a better world, make a positive impact in your community. I have been putting this on the test for many years and it really makes sense.

Edi Rama: Take back your city with paint
Really inspiring. It remembered me the story available at "the Tipping point" when New York mayor decided to paint the underground stations. Immediately criminality decreased in the Underground, number of travellers increased and people not paying their fares decreased. This is another confirmation of how beauty improves moral living.
