What are you resolutions for 2018 ?

I hope you will enjoy your 2018 Journey.

With my family, we have taken some key decisions to leave Belgium and come in the U.S.

Our moto has always been to enjoy, embrace the journey wherever we go, be positive and never give-up.

I’ve learnt that

Life is like a theatre. But question is not whether you are in the audience or on the stage but rather, are you where you want to be ?

I like the resolutions below as there are simple, fun, positive and can help you enjoying the Journey and achieve your goals.

[infographic] Leaders delivering vs. Leaders destroying.

Working at Microsoft, I have the chance to be inspired by Satya Nadella, our CEO.

He has brought the concept of “Growth Mindset” and we are living this concept every day at Microsoft.

When Satya Nadella took the reins as CEO of Microsoft in early 2014, he made no secret of the fact that he would shake up the company’s culture to meet the challenges of the modern era.

The key concept Nadella has pushed is the “growth mindset,” which emphasizes the notion of learning from others, and learning from your own mistakes, so you can move

quickly and find the right path forward.

In a new interview with Bloomberg’s Dina Bass, Nadella shares that it was the 2007 book “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success,” by Stanford professor of psychology Carol Dweck, that gave him the “intuition” that led to making the “growth mindset” the philosophical core of the change he’s trying to create at Microsoft.

The infographic below is not directly linked to Growth Mindset but I find some components in it and I like the way it shows Leaders delivering vs. leaders destroying.

A new year starts often with new resolutions.

I like this one as it is a good summary of some tips to be positive in 2018.

One of the most important steps you can take toward achieving your greatest potential in life is to learn to monitor your attitude and its impact on your work performance, relationships and everyone around you.

Each of us encounters hard times, hurt feelings, heartache, and physical and emotional pain.

The key is to realize it’s not what happens to you that matters; it’s how you choose to respond.

Your mind is a computer that can be programmed. You can choose whether the software installed is productive or unproductive. Your inner dialogue is the software that programs your attitude, which determines how you present yourself to the world around you.

You have control over the programming. Whatever you put into it is reflected in what comes out.

Latin America is back to growth

I have the chance to work for Microsoft as PC Category Lead for Latin America. In that context, this article gives a great overview on how Latin America is evolving as an amazing region of opportunities.

Analysts see regional GDP growing 2.4% in 2018. A recovery of confidence in the region is expected to fuel healthy private consumption and investment next year, while exports of commodities are seen benefiting from higher global prices. In 2019, growth is seen rising modestly to 2.7%.
