    My mission is to make the world a more enjoyable, happier, balanced place. I believe it’s our human right.  Evidence tells us that over the last century humanity has grown significantly healthier and wealthier, yet in general our well-being and mental health have been left behind. And there’s nowhere more relevant to each of us than of course the Workplace.

It’s been applied in many areas of life: In economics Pareto noticed that about 80% of Italy's land was owned by 20% of the population (Manual of political economy, 1971).
