  • You're Not With Us - But Always Here

    אתה לא איתנו - אבל תמיד פה. המוח לא קולט. הלב לא מאמין. המילים לא באות. ונזכר בחיוך. ונזכר באמונה. ונזכר בראיית הטוב. היית רוצה שאחייך. ושאאמין. ושאראה את הטוב. ואני מבין מה צריך לעשות. אבל עוד לא מסוגל. לזכר הרב רונן נויבירט ז״ל. כ"ב בכסלו, ה'תשל"א – ט"ו בניסן, ה'תשפ"א You're Not With Us - But Always Here The brain can't grasp it. The heart won't believe it. No words come to mind. (I) Remember his smile. (I) Remember his faith. And (I) remember him always seeing the good in everything. You'd want me to smile. And to have faith. And to see the good. And I understand what you expect me to do. But I just can't do it. Not yet. In memory of Rav Ronen Neuwirth Z"L December 20, 1970 - March 28, 2021

  • Pearls of Non-Wisdom: Why Exercising is Easy, and Losing Weight is Hard

    What is the reason Exercising is Easy and Losing Weight is hard? It's quite Simple (and obvious). In order to start - and continue - exercising, you "only" need to "be strong" once a day, possibly a couple of times a week - and for a short period. Maybe 30 minutes, maybe an hour. But that's it. On the other hand... In order to start - and continue - losing weight (or eating healthier, or spending less money), you need to "be strong" 24/7/365 - because the temptation of food (and calories, or junk food) is always around you. Obvious, no? A a life-changing commitment is super-hard. An on-going commitment is much easier. (It almost sounds like a mistake - but I just re-read it. It's not.) Just set your expectations accordingly, and you won't be surprised.

  • Pearls of Non-Wisdom: An Email *Explaining* a previous Email - *Adds Confusion*

    In an ideal world, people understand each other. In the real world - they don't. So... The other day, I had a conversation at work, about some test I wanted to perform. We agreed I'd send a brief email explaining our conclusion. She shared the email with some other stake holders. Someone replied and involving someone else. This person had concerns. We opened our own email thread. I wrote an email, offering details, and explain why there was no need for concern. Now that really got them concerned. The next email explained to me, in details why they are concerned. My next email... (and you got the point, right?) Every "Let me just clarify" email just added to the confusion. Which led me to my Pearl-of-Non-Wisdom: An Email Explaining a previous Email - Adds Confusion Email can be good. But when it's not - every "improving" email usually adds to the confusion. Now it's time for the doomsday weapon - talk!
