Asking the right questions is paying attention. If we can see it, then we can ask about it. Thus, to pay attention, we need to be focused. To be focused, we need to be present. To be present, we need to be in the moment. And to be in the moment, we need to be prepared.

A heartfelt welcome

Hi, I'm Carlo Mahfouz

I’m the author of Reality Check, which is a guide to help you navigate today’s world, filled with uncertainty and distractions. Through our collective awareness, I hope that we can start identifying and working on the right questions that make our today a reflection of our future. Reality Check is only but the spark of the beginning and not the end.

Let us build a world that is not afraid of change and that no matter how complex the problem is, we are ready to tackle it. Not because we know and can foresee what it will be, but because we are constantly adapting.

So let's adapt and change, thanks for being here and welcome!
