What I had done before and what I'm doing now

In the past, I had traveled a lot with my family before my 20's. I used to go to every place, I was always there. But, before I finished my graduation, I had not traveled many times with them.

I have always put my professional goals in first place. I had not traveled many times for five years because I didn't want to affect my studies. Now I see that I have behaved in an exaggerated way. All we need a little rest.

The master's course have been teaching a lot to me. I have developed many and many skills. Technical, administrative and personal skills are some of them. Therefore, I have learned how to manage my time and know when I should work and when I should take a nap!
Good morning, good afternoon and goodnight! If you don't know why I am writing in English, take a look in this post.

Well, today's class was about success. What is a successful person, what is failure, what is success for me, and why do people fail.

If you look in the previous posts (those wrote in portuguese), you will find out that I wrote a lot about this. Discussions about professional subjects are very interesting for me, because I care a lot about my future and where I'm going.

We read a lot of interesting quotes:

Many of the life's failures are people who did not realize how close to success they were when they gave up.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.

This may look useless but sometimes that quotes could be converted in real actions and provide good results. I use some of those as inspirations to make decisions and to wake up and have a useful day!

Progress in speaking skils

Today I attended a meeting with my colleagues at USA. I have been attending those meetings since march, 2015. My advisor forced me to present the progress of our project in those meetings. It's very hard in the beginning, but I'm trying to speak fluently without scripts.

Today I talked without any help, only me, my microphone, my computer, and people listening to me. I didn't had much time to write my scripts hahahah, so, I did it my way.

The people congratulated me after the meeting. I did it very well! I'm not in the desired level, but I'm getting able to communicate!

An ordinary man

Hello again... today I'm gonna talk about a feeling that I have nowadays.

In the past, when I was younger, I dreamed about being an important person, full of activities... For that, I would study a lot, be very influential, and develop a great focus. This thought was the meaning of the word success for me. A important person should be like that.

But I didn't know why be an important person. Moreover, I didn't have a real reference. But, in my mind, I had this power to reach the goals.

I know I have... all of we have this power. But, nowadays, I'm dreaming about having better days.. The last years told me that sometimes the required effort is higher than the result. Also, it's difficult to have success still employing all of this effort.

So, I'm quiet. I want to be an ordinary man, living with his wife, sons, travel overseas, have fun with friends, and with a high rate of happy moments. I'm shifting my life from the professional perspective to the personal perspective.

Tough days

Hello again, how are you guys? I hope you are good! :)

Well, well.... I've worked a lot these days. Man... I've been writing a paper and these kind of task consumes a lot of time. At least, for me. My advisor gave me a short period to work on it. So, I had to create time where  doesn't exists..

But, the good news is that I've finished it! Yaaa. Now it is with my friend and english teacher, Thiago Dantas. I hope he aren't having many problems to fix it. I think I am writing well, better than 12 months ago. But, I want more!

I'm not attending the english classes at my school because I've been working  a lot on this paper and other things... but I wish I could publish paper in a near future.

So, this is all folks, a great hug for all of you.
