About Convey

The Breeding Ground for creative people, with the aim to inspire people in finding their passions through sharing our knowledge and wisdom in the field of Business Spirituality & Management.
I believe that following Convey is participating in the continuous flow of creativity, which in turn is part of our unlimited source of positive energy - which undoubtedly unites us to where we are now. In a philosophical way, I let the creative minds think about (WHO, WHAT and HOW) Who we really are, What skills we actually have and How we can achieve our goals in society, while helping each other. I do this by posting knowledge packed in various forms and perspectives, influenced by music, art and design.
"Thank you for being inspired"

- Dervin Sno (Conveier)
The Vision of Convey is to create an online-offline platform for creative people (leaders) in our society, where ideas are exchanged and visions become reality. A balanced environment that allows us to think, move and cooperate as we are naturally inclined to. With this we are working on an innovative and caring society in which everyone takes responsibility and work with each other in good and bad times. An environment in which there is little or no question of self-interest, but where people help/ and stand up for each other no matter the background (skin, religion). With this notion we are creating a society in which we can develop ourselves as real leaders.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Why Humans Are Attracted to Light?
The most powerful human response to light is the most simple: it is the fundamental attraction that humans have toward light and lighted spaces. Just like moths to a flame, we drift towards areas of brightness. This unconscious desire is significant because it is instinctual. It differs from our response to many other elements of design that are a product of taste, trend or favor. We are told that the human affinity for light is a mechanism of survival. This instinct has a name: we call it phototropism (Latin for light-attracted)

Tips for Working with Light
Adjust your desk so that you can catch as many outdoor light as possible (so you can look outside). If we have to work with artificial lighting, fluorescent is not that ideal. Fluorescent tubes have a concentration within the orange-red-violet portion of the spectrum, while the blue-green region is the most important. A lack of the blue-green spectrum part can lead to fatigue and eyestrain.
[…]
The variation in intensity of the (sun) light keeps us alert and stimulates us. Especially when the outside light or light from the ceiling is not enough, make sure u have a desk lamp.
Light has a significant impact on our mood. Many people have seasonal depression during long dark periods.
[…]
The sun provides natural melatonin, a neuro-transmitter which activates sleep.
[…]
The sun plays a major role in our day and night rhythm and our mood (when we feel depressed, it is wise to look at the sun).

The reason so many small businesses fail, however, is because passion alone can’t cut it. For passion to survive, it needs structure. A WHY without the HOWs, passion without structure, has a very high probability of failure.

Passion may need structure to survive, but for structure to grow, it needs passion.
