Who sleeps on the right side tonight?

This is part #2 of my “CEO and a dad” thinking. My wife and I sleep in the same room with our little one – having his baby bed right next to ours placed at 90 degrees along the left side of our bed. This constellation was my wife’s idea, so she can handle things more conveniently at night – without having to actually get up from bed. Our little screamer has a nasty voice pitch, so you can imagine how it looks when he does his C6 a the top of his lungs at 2am – you don’t want to let him “practice” for too long :) Just

My life is basically a perfect balance of constant missing something.
When I’m at work – I miss my wife and kid. I miss them a lot. When I’m at home, and during weekends – I miss my buddies at the office. I miss them a lot.
Turns out I’m living my life missing something. Which is probably ok. I think that the best way of finding out if something is acually worthwile your time on this plane is simple lackmus test – do you miss it when you’re not nearby it?

Little one

I’m a father for 16 months now. And a CEO for 8 years, across two different companies. I was (and probably still am) making a myriad of mistakes as a CEO – especially in regards to building my team, culture and processes. Being the one that is looked up to is tough; I want to be a person of very high integrity and positive influence – yet again I somehow managed to make whole gamut of mistakes on every step of the way. In time, and with some help from my friends&peers, I’ve managed to reach certain epiphany on where I went wrong, and to the best of my abilities I’m trying not to make the same mistakes over again.

Koliko ste zadovoljni restoranima u Beogradu?

Ako smatrate da sa načinom na koji se u beogradskim restoranima odnose prema hrani koju nam serviraju nesto debelo nije u redu i da zapravo jako mali broj njih pruža vrednost za novac — onda se osećate kao i ja. Dobijamo nešto što je pripremljeno sa jako malo pažnje i poštovanja, zapravo rezultat “sklapanja” a ne kulinarskog umeća.

Death of online ratings as we know it

From the age of Amazon, CNET and eBay, many people become comfortable in evaluating things in absolute terms and relying on plethora of reviews for peer experiences with products or services. Five-star system became de-facto standard in rating. Why is it broken now?

I actually really liked this slide from Mark Randall (@markran), presented on How-to-Web conference last week, so I wanted to share with all of you. I think the title speaks enough, no additional explanation is needed. Truly awesome.

Zašto me restoran “Novak” više neće videti

Želim da podelim mali slučaj razočarenja u odnos prema gostima koji “gaji” većina beogradskih restorana. Ovaj primer se odnosi na restoran “Novak” sa Novog Beograda, koji pretenduje na epitet fine dining. Kao i većina ljudi koja ne dolazi kući uveče pre 7, uživam to “zadovoljstvo” da jedem napolju barem pet puta nedeljno. Prirodno, u većini slučajeva jedem u okolini naše kancelarije na Novom Beogradu, te sam čest gost (da ne kažem deo inventara) u restoranima Novak, Bella Italia, kao i par lokalnih mačkarnica u koje spadaju Victoria Station, Plato (kod Raiffeisen banke) i sl. Ne bih se ovog puta osvrtao

Kada se govori o startapima i preduzetništvu kod nas, često se preskače jedan jako bitan aspekt te priče – konkurencija. Na našim prostorima je prisutno dijametralno suprotno shvatanje ophođenja sa konkurencijom u odnosu na anglosaksonce i druga ekonomski otvorena tržišta. Mora li tako?

Zaboravite protokol i classy ponašanje tokom naručivanja i prezentacije vina. Ne želimo da izgledamo otmeno. Niti da impresioniramo devojke. Cilj je prost – u neprijateljskom okruženju restorana koji hoće da nam skine kožu s leđa i iscedi poslednji dinar izboksovati što bolje i što jeftinije vino :)
