Energy focus and work optimization

  Last Tuesday I was in a "meeting" on ideas and strategies related to energy focus and optimization. It was organized by the company "Lidr" and different topics were discussed to answer the questions: - Do you struggle with effectively managing your attention, your energy and your time? - Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed, and don't have the resources to increase your concentration? - What if you could actually train your focus? It was a collaborative event with several talks followed with those mini collaborative workshops.  They talked about how to prioritize tasks and plan effectively, delved into what distractions are, their different types and how to avoid them, and finally they also talked about everything from time to energy management to how to learn the art of living. It was a very enriching activity. And the speakers shared some resources to start implementing some solutions that make our professional lives more productive. I leave some links in the r

Zurrukutuna Soup recipe

The following post has nothing to do with technology, but it is something that I want to remember in the future. This last saturday I visited my mother and she offer me a very good soup she learnt from the cook "Arguiñano" on TV. She is a big fan of the Arguiñano cook, so everything this man does has relevance to her. The thing is that I was so delighted that she wanted me to keep the recipe. The content of the picture has been OCR'ed and edit after it. Sopa Zurrukutuna  ("sorber o chupar" en vasco) Pelar y sofreir unos ajos enteros. Poner 1 cucharada de aceite por comensal. Añadir pan "sopaco" o tostado. Remojar los pimientos (3) choriceros en agua hirviendo 5 minutos. Pan cortado en lonchitas finas o desmenuzado, se añade un trozo de guindilla y una cucharada de pimentón dulce o picante al gusto. Añadir el caldo, que se puede hacer con cebolla, zanahoria y puerro o un cubito de caldo de verdures. Hervir 20 minutos aproximadamente con un poco de sal.
