Let’s have a look at some reading discoveries from the week in another great Weekly Pulse session!?

Nope! That’s not going to happen… No Weekly Pulse big readings this week

My baby girl was born this week! Fatherhood is now a part of my life.

The week was my first week in which I didn’t read a single page or a single article, so again: no big things to the Weekly Pulse.

It’s that simple.

And it is beautiful!

My baby girl is perfect!

The challenges of parenthood reveal themselves every night as we exchange tired looks, wondering if we are making the right decisions.

Sleep becomes a scarce resource, but it’s surprising how paternal instinct awakens an inner strength that surpasses any lack of rest.

It’s the constant awareness that we are now the guardians of a life, responsible for shaping the future of a little soul entirely dependent on us.

Family life, despite the restless nights and days filled with tasks, is a treasure shining amid fatigue.

Every move of our daughter, every grateful glance exchanged with my wife, are moments that transform fatigue into gratitude. Family life is a complex symphony, where the soft tones of concern blend with the vibrant notes of unconditional love.

Even in moments when exhaustion threatens to obscure the vision, we remember that we are part of something greater. Parenthood is a journey that challenges us, shapes us, and constantly reminds us that the true meaning of life is intertwined with the emotional bonds we create.

Managing the complex demands of parenthood teaches us to prioritize and balance multiple tasks effectively. This “time management” skill becomes a considerable advantage in leadership, where making quick and efficient decisions is crucial for the success of the team and the organization as a whole.

This blog will keep going. And we will keep having more Weekly Pulse every week. Soon, I want to share some reflections I’ve been having about doing less and producing more at the same time. Almost a lazy manifesto for life adjustments to better manage our energy.

So…

Have a look at the blog posts that I published on my website instead (since I was quite prepared before with my content).

— Ah, I am reading “Baby Rules for Baby“, a gift from my friend Lairton Ballin.
