Why and how should you focus on good storytelling

Every once in a while I read an article or listen to a lecture that really sweeps me off my feet. I try to determine the unique element that keeps me so focused on the information I’m getting, and I think one of the most important ingredients of this success recipe is good storytelling. So, what does the word “storytelling” mean? Why is it so important? How can we use it? I took these questions for a little online reading aside my coffee and I’d like to share with you my insights.

5 Reasons To Love Chatbots

About a week ago I went to Chatbot Summit – the first international chatbot summit in Israel. The event was really cool and some really interesting speakers came to share their knowledge and experience.

I’m a designer and I know I have lots of flaws and weaknesses, putting me far from being able to design the perfect product.

This is my personal way of managing workflow, and if you’re having some (or all) of the self-management problems I’m having, I hope you’ll use these tools for your benefit (Also, at the end of the post you can sign up for the newsletter and get a checklist of this workflow for your personal use).

The thing about inspiration

A couple of months ago I’ve been to an amazing trip to Berlin. This city has so much to offer and so many inspiring stories. What had me in my visit was the fact that people actually got out of their comfort zone, made incredible art in the streets and actually made a change. My instant reaction was “Holy shit. I wanna do this too!”. Looking back, that “Holy shit” was the moment I realized I’m inspired.
