By tradition and ritual, the ends and beginnings of cycles tend to be moments for messages, resolutions, evaluation and planning. With a new year ahead, I am in the mood to follow my heart rather than reason. I would like to share a quote from the Jesuit priest Jaume Filella: “In the morning, be demanding with yourself; at night, be tender.”
Filella, who served as Director General of ESADE from 1988 to 1992, understood that our institution is characterised by constant change. He made sure that each and every one of our members was ready to adapt to a new scenario, even when the curtain had not yet come down on the previous one.
