Goal setting

The goal setting process is very important and at the end of the year everybody sets goals.

If you take the time to identify your true life and career goals, and work out how you're going to achieve them, you're much, much more likely to succeed! With properly set goals, you can work steadily to realize the dreams that are important to you, and start living the positive, passionate, energized life that you’ve always wanted. With all the distractions of other things, how else will your dreams get the attention they need?

I was reading about goal setting lately and I enjoyed a simple 5-step process for setting goals:



1 Reflect on yourself at the best
2 Explore your dreams
3 Focus on your passion
4 Set powerful goals ... Dream big
5 Organize yourself for success

I was delivering a training about "My personal vision and my personal values" ..how important is to have a vision that will help you succed in life...With your vision u can easily set goals! U know where do you want to go but you have only to set the proper steps to get close to your vision!

It depends on everybody if they want to set goals...In my opinion this process is very important and it can make you a better year..knowing where are you heading for and the IMPACT you want to have on that year. Goal setting is a powerful tool to motivate yourself to turn your vision into reality!

In the last 3 years I was setting goals and at the end of the year reading my resolution for that year I was impressed to see that most of the things I've set happened...

Goal setting techniques are used by most of the people in different fields as I was saying:business people, top-level athletes and achievers in all fields. Setting goals can help you organize better your time and your resources so that you can make the things happen.

It's very important at the beginning of the process to think at the "Big picture" of what you want to do with your life and the large-goals you want to achieve. After that you can break this big goals into smaller targets that it's more easily to reach. Once you have the plan you can start to make things happen.

When setting goals is important to think of all important fields in your life, try to set goals in some of these categories.
  • Artistic:Do you want to achieve any artistic goals? If so, what?

  • Attitude:Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave that upsets you? If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.

  • Career:What level do you want to reach in your career?

  • Education:Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to achieve other goals?

  • Family:Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent? How do you want to be seen by a partner or by members of your extended family?

  • Financial:How much do you want to earn by what stage?

  • Physical:Are there any athletic goals you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?

  • Pleasure:How do you want to enjoy yourself? - you should ensure that some of your life is for you!

  • Public Service:Do you want to make the world a better place? If so, how?
It takes time to set goals because you have to braistorm. You have to choose and select your goals carefuly. It's important to set SMART goals (make them Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound)

Make sure that the goals that you have set are the ones that reflect you the best not the ones your parents, family, friends migh want.

Goal setting is an important method of:
  • Deciding what is important for you to achieve in your life;

  • Separating what is important from what is irrelevant, or a distraction;

  • Motivating yourself;

  • Building your self-confidence, based on successful achievement of goals

Good luck in setting your goals for 2008!

HI-Q la Iasi

HI-Q trupa mea favorita au cantat aseara la Iasi. A fost o petrecere privata pentru BRD. Primul concert pe anul asta al trupei in Iasi s-a bucurat de un succes deosebit in ciuda faptului ca nu au fost conditii excelente legate de sunet. Dar atmosfera a fost de nota 10+ ... lumea s-a distrat si a dansat alaturi de HI-Q!
A fost o placere sa ma reintalnesc cu bunii mei prieteni Mihai, Florin, Nico, DJ Star precum si cu noua trupa de instrumentisti pe care i-am cunoscut si care fac parte deja din marea familie HI-Q dar si cu prietenul Nicoletei.

In formula 100% live HI-Q suna matur, un sound care te face sa visezi si sa traiesti cei 11 ani de hituri, momente placute pe care le-ai trait pe muzica lor. M-am bucurat ca am avut ocazia sa-i vad in noua formula si sper ca in 2008 sa-i vad mai des prin Iasi sau prin alte parti in tara.

Un alt lucru pozitiv a fost ca ne-am distrat dupa concert. Nu au fost nevoiti sa plece la hotel sa se odihneasca si erau intr-o buna dispozitie de petrecere. Astfel dupa concert am ramas la petrecerea BRD si am petrecut cu totii.




Later edit:Multe femei frumoase pe cativa centimetri patrati...am vazut-o si eu la fel ca si Florin dar din pacate a plecat prea repede...poate daca as fi actionat .... altfel ar fi fost problema si nu ar fi plecat!

Multumesc prieteni! A fost o seara frumoasa alaturi de voi.

The 7 Secrets of Highly Successful People

Alex, your secret to success is to be Enthusiastic

Your zeal for life can be infectious because you tend to take on the things you do with fervor and passion. You also place value on being well liked and developing and maintaining good work relationships.

Your positive energy and attitude can be an inspiration to co-workers. They likely feel that your presence makes the workweek go by much more easily. When problems do arise around the office, you might find that you are one of the first people called upon to resolve them.

Your diplomatic nature can make you a natural when it comes to conflict resolution because you seek ways to keep all parties satisfied. This skill can make you a popular leader. By keeping long-term ambitions in mind, you realize that fair policies make for good business.

Projecting positivity wherever you go is a quality that is not easily acquired by others. More than most, you have a knack for saying the right thing at the right time.

Bloggers Meeting Number 5

Vineri seara in Cannabis(Best Club) a avut loc intalnirea cu numarul 5 a bloggerilor din Iasi.
Au fost prezenti: Marius, Gina, Hadess, Andrei, Ines, Alex, Catalin, Noni, Mary, Ana, Maddish, Marius.

In afara de acesti bloggeri ieseni au mai fost prezenti sotia lui Marius si 2 prieteni de-ai Ginei.

A fost o seara placuta. S-a incercat un networking mai bun intre bloggeri dar discutiile s-au axat in cele din urma pe partea de internet. Astfel a fost o discutie la inceput despre Youtube si s-a continuat cu Adsense, fotbal, politica (Cu Alex in rol principal),bani din blog (aici a fost o discutie interesanta), portaluri care iti pot aduce cu adevarat bani daca reusesti sa ai o idee originala si sa aduci ceva nou, trafic.ro, Google Analytics,etc.

Poze gasiti la Seedee care a venit branduit cu un tricou negru pe care puteam admira adresa blogului.

All in all a fost o seara placuta(mai putin partea de blitzuri de la aparatele foto). Sper ca data viitoare sa reusim sa ne adunam mult mai multi si sa reusim sa discutam despre un proiect comun al bloggerilor din Iasi. Oricum e bine ca incep sa se miste lucrurile si pe la noi.

Cel mai misto cadou

Tocmai am primit o leapsa de la Gina despre cel mai misto cadou pe care am putea sa-l primim. Este un concurs organizat de UPC special pentru bloggeri.

Se apropie sarbatorile de iarna dar inca nu mi-am facut un wishlist...ce-i drept stiu ca cel mai mult imi lipseste in momentul de fata un aparat foto digital. Aveam un Sony doar ca s-a stricat.
Sunt pasionat de fotografie si mi-as dori un aparat foto profesional pentru a putea surprinde mai bine diferitele aspecte ale vietii.

Cred ca cel mai potrivit cadou pentru mine ar fi un Canon Powershot S5 IS .

Mi-as mai dori o vacanta in Turcia sau in alta tara din ASIA sau America de Sud.

Dau mai departe leapsa la Andrei, Mono, Maddish, Andra, Andi.

One day.One issue.Thousands of voices

Today is Blog Action Day, a day when thousands of voices (websites&blogs) decided to participate in this project by posting messages about the environment. One interesting question which I think it's important is: What would happen if thousands of blogs&websites decided to focus on one issue for one day,in an attempt of creating awareness regarding the environment we all live in?

Only together we can change something in this world and we can become more powerful if we unite our forces in order to have a sustainable environment. "The natural environment is a term that comprises all living and non-living things that occur naturally on Earth or some part of it".

Small things that can be done to save the environment:
  • turn off monitor and speakers when you're not using them, and you're away from your computer.
  • try to bike when you have the possibility
  • use recycled paper
  • recycle paper, plastic, glass
  • donate money to organizations that deal with environmental problems
  • reduce the usage of air conditioner
  • turn off lights
  • put the computers in stand-by mode when we're taking a break from work
  • using economical lightbulbs
  • plant trees
  • use less water
  • print less
  • Use less water. Try to never leave the water running unnecessarily

and many others...

Just try to realize how important is the environment we all live in ..and let's take action! We can do it everyday in order to have a green environment and let a good legacy for our children.

Special thanks to blog action day for this project and all the people that decided to take time to write some things on their blogs.

E gata clipul

Ziceam in postul precedent despre faptul ca HI-Q au filmat un nou videoclip, al doilea extras pe single de pe albumul "Best of" la piesa "Poveste fara nume".

Clipul este gata si din weekend va aparea la posturile de specialitate. Dupa parerea mea este cel mai reusit clip HI-Q. Un clip de stare care exprima sensibilitate, emotie, prietenie si o maturitate a trupei dupa 10 ani de succese.

Am crescut cu HI-Q si sunt mandru de ei, de faptul ca ne-am maturizat impreuna si de faptul ca de 10 ani se mentin pe piata la un inalt nivel. HI-Q e sinonim cu high quality, munca , pasiune si prietenie.

Acestea sunt ingredientele de succes. Cuvintele sunt de prisos si va las sa va bucurati de noul clip.



HI-Q more than words just feelings!

Hi-Q Making of Poveste fara nume - acustic 2007

Pe 31 august HI-Q trupa mea favorita au filmat un nou clip. E al doilea extras pe single de pe albumul Best of/Acustic , dupa Buna Dimineata.

Este vorba de "Poveste fara nume-acustic 2007". E o piesa care a mai beneficiat de un videoclip dar are o interpretare noua, orchestratie si structura care te fac sa visezi si sa te bucuri din plin de aventura vietii.

Sunt sigur ca vor avea succes si cu aceasta piesa sensibila asa cum s-a intamplat si cu:"Dor de tine, dor de noi" cand HI-Q au surprins promovand o balada in mijlocul primaverii.
:)

HI-Q au implinit pe 29 Iulie 11 ani de cand s-au lansat si asa cum spuneau in "Sfarsit de septembrie" -varianta acustica:
"In toti acesti ani ne-am dat seama ca mai presus de melodii, clipuri, interviuri, emisiuni, HI-Q inseamna in primul rand prietenie" si "Insa, asa cum "Sfarsit de septembrie" este o poveste frumoasa de dragoste, HI-Q este o poveste frumoasa de prietenie intre noi , si tine..."

Enjoy! Making of Poveste fara nume -acustic 2007




Miss you guyz!

Sustainable development- A new journey in my life

"We are 3 young people interested in founding a new local chapter in our city. We are interested in sustainable development issues and we want to have an impact and make people aware of the fact that only together we can change something and act for a better world.

We consider NGOs and voluntary work a great way for young people to discover and develop their potential, to learn new things by being involved in interesting projects. That’s why we want to build a new NGO.. In our city there are not so many international NGOs and we are eager to build one in order to offer new possibilities to young people to develop themselves.

We heard about oikos by browsing the internet and we liked the mission, the vision and the projects and we thought that sustainable development is something new for students from our city because they are not aware of it. We decided to ACT and change something in this field and help people to become change agents in sustainable development field.But changing curricula towards sustainable development is more challenging for us

It will be very hard to change something in the curricula because not all the teachers are open-minded. We are eager to start this job and make teachers aware of the fact that sustainable development issues is an important topic nowadays. They can attract students at their lectures if they initiate several disscusions about present problems the world is facing with
We can make people aware of sustainable issues only if we educate them. Education is a primary level to narrow the gap between today’s business practice and the guiding principles of sustainable development.

It will be a long journey for us in building this NGO in our city but we have the passion, enthusiasm, energy ,experience and we are eager to ACT regarding sustainable development issues and make world a better place for people to live.

Let’s start this journey together and make oikos grow further.In other words: “let’s inform people that they can get involved and make a difference” and let’s make things happen.
LC Iasi striving for sustainable development!"

This is the motivation letter sent by me and my team to oikos International. oikos is an international NGO, and they seek to strengthen sustainability-oriented entrepreneurship among tomorrow's leaders and decision makers by sensitising students of business and economics to sustainable development issues.

One of my objectives till the end of the year was to build an international NGO in my city. So i'm about to make things happen. Our lc(local chapter) become chapter in accession but many things have to be done. It's just the beginning of a new journey in my life and because I want to let something behind in my faculty I'll do my best to grow this NGO.

To be continued
:)

What will be my next IMPACT?

I was wondering and asking myself this days what will be my next IMPACT? I was thinking about other ways of unleashing my great potential and I'm searching for new opportunities or I'm trying to INVENT them. I'm happy that I'll be again conference manager.

Together with a part of my team(the trainers team for SPP first conference) we will organize again a new conference for Psychology students in November. Another experience for me as conference manager...Looking back at the first conference I feel more experienced and I want to improve the things that went wrong at the first conference.

I'm happy that I have the support of my team and we started preparing the conference. Actually it's individual preparation. Giani is participating in a conference held in Poland by Unesco. A conference where we applied together but I wasn't selected...Hope Giani has a great time there while she is enjoying the conference, learning useful things that will help us in preparing the conference. The main theme of the conference is EDUCATION:

"Education is a meaningful tool enabling us to introduce and to integrate young people in the world of dialogue, the world of mutual understanding, the world whose future depends on them.
Therefore we have chosen intercultural, civic and peace education as the main topic of our conference. We will approach these issues from the standpoint of non – formal education to let participants understand better the complexity of today’s world."

I participated in a conference that took place in Germany between 1st and 10th of June. The greatest conference ever for me. There were 400 students from 80 countries in Ilmenau discussing about education and the problems that the world is facing today. (More about this conference, my feelings in a next post)

Besides this conference I'm reading a lot lately trying to prepare better. I have many training materials on my notebook and hope I'll manage to read all of them. Also I've finished a book that I started in April :) No time to read because of school and other projects ...I've read Time management and how we establish our priorities by Stephen R. Covey and now I started another book "The inspirational leader" by John Adair -leadership GURU.
I haven't felt for ages the pleasure of reading something not for school , not for achieving marks just for my own knowledge. I feel great and I'm happy that I have time to FOCUS on reading.

when University starts again in Octomber I'll start my 4th year. The next University year will be focused on reading and preparing the degree paper. My degree paper will be about "Development of leadership abilities at young people"
I've experienced leadership 2 times in AIESEC and 1 time outside and I'm eager to start reading books about it and develop my personal vision, my personal opinions.

Looking back finishing the 3rd year was an interesting experience. The second semester of school was full of projects but I was enjoying preparing them because of my team and because of the fact that we had the best projects presentantion. Besides that the best marks I've achieved till now at University.

I feel comfortable being in front of people and trying to present my ideas. I can say I have good presentation skills but everytime is place to improve them. Improving is the key of the development.

I realized that I like a lot to organize conferences, to participate as delegate, to be conference manager or trainer. Conferences means for me a great learning environment , a playground where I push my limits, I use my creativity while I'm building my dreams and perform my life at high volume.

For sure in the future my training company will organize preparation programs such as conferences because adults learn better in non-formal places. Being there I reload my batteries and I'm more stronger to fight with REAL LIFE.

I'm waiting for an answer because somebody made me a proposal to help them with a conference in my city in September. A trainer from UK is coming to train people interested to work for UE. There will be a 2 days event and I'll be in the organizing team.
They will give me money but I'll join the conference for free. And the participants will have to pay fee for being trained.

So what will be my next IMPACT?

Germany here I come!


Today I'm leaving Iasi and tomorrow I'll be flying for the first time in my life. I'm going to Germany, Ilmenau for 12 days because I'm going to participate at International Students week, a festival known as ISWI.
I was selected to participate together with 400 students from 80 countries. I'm waiting eagerly because I love diversity. There will be 12 days of living diversity at high volume.
The theme of the festival is Time to think in relation with education. There will be workshops about education(education in the future,education and religion,education and ecology,education and science,psychology of learning,education and politics,education in changing times,education as human right), media , photography, design, literature, theatre,music, film , videoart. I'm waiting this festival since February when I heard I was selected.
I see this festival as a place where together with people from all over the world we will build a vision about Education, we will have a great time but the most important thing we will take time to think how we as individuals we can change something.
I have amazing feelings , emotions and I’m waiting eagerly to join the festival and together to brainstorm great ideas. To put our creativity in function in oder to have an IMPACT related to this issue. I think that we must realize that it’s time to think and act because now it’s a right moment for us to build a great learning system.
in the end:
Take a minute to think and realize if u have something to say about EDUCATION!

It’s time to think and ACT for a better world and for life long learning!
Living my life with passion while I'm building my dreams! I'll blog live from the conference because we will have wireless. I'm happy I'll visit Germany and I'm on the right track achieving my objectives for this year.

See you soon and good luck guyz with exams!

Performing my Life

I didn't post for long time on my blog but I have many interesting things to share.

Trying to perform my life at high volume and smile with my heart while I'm trying to build my dreams, my adventure of living , the new Me.I was trying to do this till now and I can say that I'm happy because I'm on the right track.

My personal objective for this year is to have an IMPACT on everything I do, for people I meet, for me. If 2005 was the year of PASSION, 2006-year of Experience , 2007 will be the year of great IMPACT.

Being conference manager for first SPP conference (26th-29 th April) was one of the most powerful experiences I passed because it was full of intensive moments, inspiring moments, moments I will never forget. I had the chance to work with a great team(Simo, Cosmin, Giani, Dragos) and together we succeeded in making things happen, a perfect learning environment where 30 people had the chance to DREAM, SMILe and use their creativity at high volume.

It's strange because it took time for me to blog my feelings regarding this conference. I was thinking a lot lately about what happened there, about my great team and the fact that at the end of the conference we realized that we succeeded in making a great team.

How was to be conference manager? After 16 conferences where I was delegate and thinking how it will be to be conference manager,to build the conference agenda and help delegates to feel good I had the chance to be. It was a long a journey that started on 24 March in Bucharest and it had the impact on 27-29 th April.

I felt responsible, I had butterflies in my stomach but I was ready to make things happen even if I encountered many challenges. There were people that motivated me to pass over and realize that I have a important mission to finish and at the end I'm happy I did it together with my great team!

I was saying that people motivate me a lot. I was happy to see that besides the challenges we had with the accomodation, the food and other things the delegates were flexible and eager to help the trainers team because they wanted to learn and have fun.

At the end of the conference I was smilling with my heart while I was reading all the beautiful messages I've received ...it was on the way backhome in my parents car and besides smilling I was blushing while my tears appeared. In 3 days people become very close to eachother and I can say after this wonderful conference we helped them and I'm proud of their growth.

Being conference manager -a great journey , a journey that made me realize I have things to improve, a great leadership experience ..but EMPOWER! "Connect the people with the end result, INVOLVE them in the result, process, vision!!!"

Giani was saying:"Every trainer got remarked with their unique skills that made the conference special for delegates"

Sugar cubes for my team:
Simo: I want to thank you for this great opportunity, because together we built this project in the first phase , for the fact that you care about me and because you had an impact in my life.You helped me discover the real life and keep me smilling that I can change something.
Giani: I've discovered a great person and I'm happy we worked together. As I was saying it's not the end it's just the beginning and be prepared for the next projects we will build. And thank you for hugging me when I needed the most. Don't forget Challenge-dream-vision-synergy and impact"

Dragos: I remember many moments with you... We went together to TTT, we had an important role for another conference (a national conference) but I remember you cooking at this conference while I was preparing a sandwich for you.:) Thanks for being there "

Cosmin: Hope you're not mad on me. I know that we had a lot of problems during the conference and I want to thank you for your calm and for the fact that you broke some of your values in order to make things happen. Hope you've enlarged your network of contacts that will help you with your projects
Trainers team , SPP first conference 27th-29th April

















Special thanks for delegates that helped us!

My strenghts

David J. Pollay, AIESEC International Hall of Fame member and President of The Momentum Project, is leading the International Leadership Strengths Research Project in conjunction with the University of Pennsylvania. The mission of this research project is to help leaders become more aware of their strengths, and to encourage these leaders to fully develop their strengths in support of their goals. More than 1,000 leaders from nearly 100 countries are involved in this research project.

An analysis is being conducted to determine if leaders in an organization have a distinct strengths profile compared to others of a similar age and education. We are using the VIA Signature Strengths Survey to measure the strengths of leaders. Click here for an overview of the VIA Signature Strengths Survey.

Mr. Pollay presented the results of the first phase of this research at the International Positive Psychology Summit in Washington, D.C. in October, 2006. His paper was titled, "Strengths Profiles of Leaders in Organizations."

I've made the test and below u can see my results!

Your Top Strength

Industry, diligence, and perseverance

You work hard to finish what you start. No matter the project, you "get it out the door" in timely fashion. You do not get distracted when you work, and you take satisfaction in completing tasks.

WI-FI in my room


I can't sleep....I have wi-fi in my room! that's great...I found an WI-fi neighborhood network and I'm enjoying even if the signal is not good. But I need to locate from where I receive the signal in order to know where to stay with my laptop.

:)

Now I can open internet websites....it's a progress because till now I had the chance to connect only to skype and no messenger, no msn , no websites because the signal was very low.I'm curious from where I receive the wi-fi signal because not all the time is working.

I'm the bird of night :) Enjoying my adventure of living with WI-FI!


Special thanks for the ones that have the WI-FI and share with me!

Training or learning?

I was thinking what is the difference between training and learning? If there is any difference or not. I had the chance to be "teacher" for one hour few weeks ago when after 3 years of faculty I went back to my highschool (where I learnt for 8 years...Colegiul National Iasi".
For me it was a powerful learning experience and I was glad to see that besides my bad impressions about the new generation people prove to be very opened and the most important one interested to build a good future for them and do extra school activities.

That's nice...and I'm impressed!

I was invited by my history teacher to motivate people, to talk with teenagers (11th grade)about the first edition of an project management contest I've participated when I was in highschool"Europa la liceu" (May 2004) when together with my team we won the prize for the best planned project but the most important thing to share my impressions after 3 years of high volume by having the most interesting experiences that helped me to be the person I am today.




My first team...Europa la liceu-2004
Our history teacher&Alexandra (LCVP Communication 2007-2008 LC IASI) &Mihaela&Georgiana(missing :()

It was a great day for me...being in front of 30 people but the most important of unknow people and teenagers with different values and vision about the "pursuit of happyness " ...sharing my impressions about education and about the fact that I want to make a change in this field,about ways of unleashing their potential in order to have a great IMPACT ,being asked by them about AIESEC and voluntary work made my smile. I had emotions at the beginning when I started my speach but after few minutes I felt very close to them and when the bell rang announcing the break I was upset but happy that I had a great learning experience. It was a nice hour and also because people asked me questions.

Another inspiring moment for me was when our teacher show me the"Jean Monett" classroom where I saw a special panel with diplomas and photos about this great contest I've had the chance to participate and also about the 2005 edition when another team from my highschool won a diploma. Also my diploma will remain in that classroom over years and hope my kids will have the chance to learn in the same highschool to see my diploma but not only because of this: because of the fact that my highschool is one of the most important ones from Iasi..but it's up to them!

I'm proud about my highschool, about the teachers that made me think that I can push my limits and dream to achieve great things or in other words DREAM BIG. Teachers were the ones that shaped my personality even if when I was in highschool I hated them, I'm proud about the teenagers that want to strive for excellence and mentain our highschool in tops , about the teachers that want to build a modern learning environment, about international projects developed by my highschool.

What is the connection between training or learning?

Important principles:

  • focus on learning, not training (Training is about the organisation. Learning is about the person.)
  • focus on emotional maturity, integrity, compassion - these are the characteristics that really matter
  • develop the person, not just the skills and knowledge (Skills and knowledge are the easy things. Most people will take care of these for themselves. Helping and enabling and encouraging people to become happier more fulfilled people is what employers and organisations should focus on. Achieve this and the skills and knowledge will largely take care of themselves...
  • give people choice

Give people choice in what, and how and when to learn and develop - there is a world of choice out there, and so many ways to access it all. People have different learning styles, rates of learning, and areas of interest. Why restrict people's learning and development to their job skills? Help them learn and develop in whatever way they want and they will quite naturally become more positive, productive and valuable to your organisation. (You may need to find bigger and/or different roles for them, but that's entirely the point - you want people to be doing what they are good at, and what they enjoy - this is what a good organisation is.)

In the end I feel great when I have the chance to motivate people and make them dream that they can change something. After this experience I enriched my network of contacts by becoming friend with two great girls. (One skipped my class...but she added me on messenger and we talk about life in general and I was impressed to see how she is thinking and also we have the same values, thoughts and belifies.

SPP -A new journey in my life

What is SPP? SPP stands for "Societatea pentru psihologie" and it's Simo's baby. What will be my connection with SPP? Simo proposed me to deliver some trainings on teambuilding to get them motivated and help them build successful projects. My proposal for them was to make their first conference and be conference manager.

It all started in Bucharest , at Phoenicia, last weekend when we had a great night dreaming and getting to know eachother better but the most important thing building a vision and an interesting project. SPP will be my NEXT project and i'm eager to take this challenge. After AIESEC I feel motivated to help people around me and share the knowledge I received during several preparation programs I took part.

And I think one of my main objectives this year :"to have an impact " on everything I do will be accomplished

On wednesday I was at SPP's meeting and I was impressed by the fact that their members want to make a change and want to make a difference. I felt very good to see this thing and I'm waiting eagerly to build a proper learning environment for them during their first conference and help them build as a team.

I have butterflies in my stomach because it will be my first experience as conference manager for an student organization I don't know, for unknow people but for organization that will start an important page in their history. I have emotions and hope everything will be great for them.

But the most important thing is that I have the passion to make important things for them and at the end of the conference I want to smile with my heart as Ilinca was saying. A challenging experience in front of me...

I started to find trainers ....5 trainers will be part of my team (Dragos, Cosmin,Alex-@-ers, Simo, and one external: Dragos's mother that will deliver trainings on emotional intelligence) , think of agenda (blocks like: Building the organization vision, teambuilding, and develop their skills on topics like project management, presentation skills, teamwork, creativity, proactivity , change management), search for proper and cheap location ....be conference manager , oc and fun team together with my team in order to help them build as a great team!

Enjoy the movie! teaser of their first conference!

Mad days in Iasi

Mad days in Iasi (Moldovian Advertising Day) great event organized by Advero. Unfortunately I won't be in Iasi and I can't attend but I'm looking forward to hear news about what happened from Andrei -a friend of mine that worked hard to turn his ideas into practice. There will be many events during this 3 days but I'm sad I can't be there to attend workshops held by Marius Ursache (on branding), Costin and Elena on planning.

A great concert at the end with Al Jawala, a German band with an eclectic sound, mixing Balkan rhythms, drum'n'bass, jazz and funk.

Join the festival! Buy tickets from Libraria Carturaresti:)

Another experience soon in Bucharest

Today I went with Simo to buy tickets for an amazing experience that will enrich my adventure of living. I applied for a great event organized by SAAR (Romanian Academic Society) and I'm looking forward having a great time in Bucharest. Everything seems to be great. We will stay at 4 stars hotel,Phoenicia that has an interesting presentation on their website: "The biggest hotel built in Romania after 1990 "

I'm sure I will have an wonderful time there because I will meet with special persons for me that I haven't seen for about 3-4 years. The conference will be organized at World Trade Center for 2 days and we will try to build a vision together with 40 people from the country regarding some issues that European Union is facing:
  • Energy & Environment: The environmental and economic impact of Europe’s energy use
  • Family & Social Welfare: The social and economic conditions for Europe’s families - EU’s
  • Global Role & Immigration: The EU’s role in the world and the management of immigration

This event is called "European Citizean Consultation" and is one of the biggest ever pan-European consultation exercise designed to ensure that the public’s voice is heard by governments and policy-makers in the current debate over the European Union’s future direction following the No votes to the EU’s Constitutional Treaty in France and the Netherlands in 2005.

What is interesting? The event will take place in the same time with similiar events in other countries like : Great Britain, Sweden, Malta and Italy.

It's the first time when I have the chance to report live and blog my feelings from the event because I will have internet wireless.

So I'll be back soon with photos, impresions , feelings and thoughts.

In the end: I'm so excited :)

Friday I'm in love

It's been a while since I've written the last post. Today it's a nice day and I listen a great song that inspires me.

The Cure-Friday I'm love

I don't care if monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and wednesday too
Thursday i don't care about you
It's friday i'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's friday i'm in love


Saturday wait
And sunday always comes too late
But friday never hesitate...

I don't care if monday's black
Tuesday wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It's friday i'm in love


Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday wednesday stay in bed
Or thursday watch the walls instead
It's friday i'm in love

Saturday wait
And sunday always comes too late
But friday never hesitate...

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's friday I'm in love

Tiesto my favourite DJ

I like house music and Tiesto is my favourite DJ.My winamp is playing Just be. It's a great saturday morning that inspires me to think and reflect about the IMPACT I want to have in this world!

Just Be

..I was lost..
and I'm still lost
but I feel so...
..much better...

You can travel the world
But you can't run away
From the person you are in your heart
You can be who you want to be
Make us believe in you
Keep all your light in the dark
If You're searching for truth
You must look in the mirror
And make sense of what you can see
Just be
Just be

They say learning to love yourself
Is the first step
That you take when you want to be real
Flying on planes to exotic locations
Won't teach you
How you really feel
Face up to the fact
That you are who you are
And nothing can change that belief
Just be

Cause now I know
It's not so far
To were I go
The hardest part is inside me
I need
To just be
Just be
I was lost
And I'm still lost
But I feel so much better

Cause now I know
It's not so far
To were I go
The hardest part is inside me
I need
To just be

Just be

Storm of thougts

It's saturday morning and I woke up at 7:00 o'clock. It's very strange for me to wake up at this hour on saturday morning. Even if I have exam today that is at 17:00 o'clock.

Something strange is happening with me. Maybe I'm tired of learning but my soul is like a storm of thoughts and I'm eagerly waiting to finish the exam session to Start the new path in my life. Since I left AIESEC I was searching for opportunities and ways of unleashing my potential. I've discovered many interesting things in the real life and I'm sure that this year I will have a great IMPACT on everything I do.

Learning for exams made me reflect about Education. It was time to think how can I change something in the educational system in Romania, How can I have an Impact for the new generation of young people that are playing computer games instead reading books..

I'm so afraid about the new generation ... they have the tools but they don't use them efficiently. I was thinking if I can make a change I must start from the lowest level...kindergarten and maybe private school! I know that it's early to talk about such dreams but I'm sure that the IMPACT I want to have in this world is related to community!

Ya IT's Time to Think and ACT...all of us must realize that we must have an impact in the educational system. Only together we can change something and make a better system. It is said, it's one of the mainstays of the civilisation. It brings us the knowledge that can relieve world suffering and is further yet present in change, plight and rebuilding. It generates the gaps which is meant to close. For some it is the highest ambition , for others a necesarry evil.

I talk about education!

This is the first part about my storm of thoughts related to EDUCATION! I need to go and study because I have 2 more exams and after I'm free to reflect and share my storm of thougts. I need to make an essay about about education in relation with the motto "Time to think"

Till then: "Live as if you will die tomorrow, but learn as if you will live forever" (Gandhi)

De ce imi place HI-Q?

Andreea mi-a trimis povestea ei legata de HI-Q. Deoarece nu are blog m-a rugat pe mine sa o fac publica pe blogul meu.


A fost o vreme in viata mea cand ma simteam pierduta, prin ganduri, prin lume, prin viata. Oameni dragi mie au plecat acolo sus fara sa inteleg de ce. Dar „cineva” a stiut sa-mi vorbeasca, sa ma asculte, sa-mi invaluie sufletul cu caldura si dragoste, sa se apropie de inima mea asa cum nu reusit nimeni altcineva, sa ma iubeasca si sa-mi daruiasca cei mai superbi ani din viata mea, de fapt i-am construit impreuna pas cu pas, zi de zi. Mii de clipe petrecute impreuna, sute de amintiri frumoase, zeci de vise, unele s-au dus, altele au ramas cu mine.

”A trecut atata timp / Nu mai stiu sa-ti spun ce simt / Si mie dor de tine mie dor de noi / Si as vrea sa te am langa mine” sunt versurile ce imi aduc mereu aminte de noi, de obiceiurile noastre, de zambete, de lacrimi, de povestea noastra. Ne iubim si acuma desi nu mai suntem impreuna, da ne iubim si stim amandoi asta dar ceva ne desparte, nu stiu ce, nu stiu de ce ...

Tot ce simt imi aminteste de el: locuri, poze, melodii... Poate pare o poveste de dragoste trista, eu nu o vad deloc asa, ma bucur de tot ce am trait si ca am avut ocazia sa am langa mine un om cu totul special.

Ne leaga sentimente, clipe, amintiri, vise, lacrimi, zambete si un cantec „ Dor de tine, dor de noi”

Sunt curios ce povesti va leaga de melodiile HI-Q? De dragoste, tristete,fericire?:)

Nice thoughts

Next week I will have 4 exams and I hope everything will be just fine.

This week I had two exams: I took a 7 and 6 -not great marks but still I passed them.

Thought of the day:

"There are special people that we meet in life who seem to make life's journey a little easier. Those people are like a candle that shows the obstacles in your way so that Life is easier to deal with."

The world of blogging

I've discovered the world of blogging last year and I decided to have my own blog as a personal learning tool that will help me in the proces of being a change agent. I see the world of bloging as a learning environment where I can express my feelings, share my knowledge and create my own playground, my own space. In our country we don't have too many blogs but I know till the end of the year there will be more.

Blogfest is a great opportunity developed by bloggers from Bucharest.As I said in one of the previous messages they want to create a romanian blog community. They have physical meetings and discuss many interesting things.
Last one was yesterday. For more info click here:

People get attracted day by day by the world of blogging ..Some use their blog to share their life experience (personal blog) , other use their blog to share information and other use their blog to post interesting photos(photo blogs).

I was thinking this year to make a change... To get a balance in my blog! To share my personal feelings and also to get a profesional approach and market my blog.
I've found a great article about how to promote your blog. Some tips:

1 Write well, write consistently, don’t give up: All the marketing in the world won’t help you if you have a lame-duck blog. In your search for more traffic, more promotion, and more publicity, never forget it starts with great content — and needs to continue with great content on a regular schedule. There’s no question that maintaining quality and regularity is difficult while you’re starting out, particularly if you’re time strapped … but hang in there, because if you sacrifice this, all of your marketing efforts will be for naught.

2 Become an expert on something: Develop a keen interest, continue to read and write intelligently, and after a while, your experience will grant you this informal title; bloggers will seek you out, your reknown will grow, and it will be easier to be noticed, linked to, and get cross promoted (see below)

3 Design is more important than you think: Your mother’s right — first impressions count, and they can count for cash money. If you’re serious about blogging, don’t stick with an unaltered top10 Wordpress theme no matter how cool you think it is. You want to separate and elevate yourself from the blogging masses, and its impossible to do if you look exactly the same as them. Easy to say, hard to do, but absolutely necessary if you don’t have the money to pay for a private ground-up theme: learn CSS and a photoeditor of choice, and learn to tweak your theme yourself, so that your blog looks professional, stands out, and screams “yes, I am worthy of your attention!”.

4 Get Your SEO On: An entire post in and of itself — get your own domain name, host your own blogging software, enable permalinks, use create keyword rich headlines, create unique title tags, enable trackback and ping functionality, ensure your blog pings pinging-services.

5 Do interviews with other bloggers: Score interviews with newsworthy individuals (who may be linked to newsworthy content), to create link worthy content, but more importantly, create news on THEIR blog to get back to YOUR blog.

First part of this article. It seems interesting and I will try to increase my traffic and market my blog.

Richard Clayderman in Romania

Don't miss this great opportunity!
Let your soul filled by great piano music!

Why I like HI-Q?

Lately I was thinking somewhere far away...I miss something!
My best summer holiday was the summer of 2005 and I remember the song"Dor de tine, dor de noi"(HI-Q) was my favourite at that time.Even if it was only a short holiday(1 week and a half) it was the most intensive experience I had.I spent this holiday with a special person that will always have a place in my heart.

She's the one who made me enjoy the adventure of living...
She's the one who made me run for another leadership opportunity...
She's the one who made me live that summer at high volume, with my smile on my face..
She's the one who made me feel free and happy!
She's the one who is inspiring me everyday and I will never forget her!

We had a 3 days weekend at seaside...going there and having no accomodation,having the most intensive 3 days of my life because everything was great. Every experience we had made us forget about the hard year we had working on different projects and we reloaded our batteries for autumn.

Sleeping on the beach, seeing the sunset and sunrise, being lost in Constanta because we didn't pay attention where we had to get off the bus, taking the last maxi-taxi to Mangalia and the last one for Vama Veche, seeing Misa in Costinesti,listen good music at Stufstock and many more.

Every time I hear at the radio this song, I think about her and those beautiful days,and that makes me feel so good!

After this weekend I comeback in my city for 2-3 days to wash my clothes and to prepare for the greatest journey of my life till now...to Experience the Unknown!

I've decided to go to Timisoara and visit her (12 hours in the train) I just know that i took the train from Iasi at 6 o'clock in the morning and the next day at 1 o'clock in the night I was in Timisoara! I don't know how the hours passed so easy but seeing her waiting me in the railway station made me SMILE with my heart.

Timisoara-the most beautiful city for me because our story was full of inspiring moments, reflections about the future, building a vision for our development and enjoying the adventure of living. Being only with her I was free to dream big somewhere far away..it was the first time when I was thinking that distance relationship can resist and surive!

There are 2 songs that remind me about her, about all the beautiful moments we had that summer...about our summer when we were free to SMILE, DREAM BIG, FLY AND PLAN the future!

Good luck Anca in running for MCVP X AIESEC LATVIA! I sure hope "for me, for you, it's not too late"("pentru mine,pentru noi, nu e prea tarziu")

I know that Andreea, Sanda, Mellisa , Alina ,Ruxandra and Nina have also beatiful stories about HI-Q songs. I'm really curious to hear their stories!

HI-Q -Dor de tine, Dor de noi

Pic of the day


Last week I've been with Simo to a cartoon exhibition related to Romania's integration in the european Union.

I saw there interesting cartoons and great ways of expressing the integration in the European Union for some countries like: Slovakia, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria.
For this exhibition , with title (Ten more for Europe) , the most known cartoonists from the new European countries illustrated their worries, waitings and hopes about European Union.
The ideea of this exhibition is old and belongs to Giselei Burkamp, historic, art critic and Dieter Burkamp. They published many catalogues , articles and studied the cartoon theme for about 30 years.
