Home People As we are Just a minute.

Just a minute.

Just a minute.


Calm the anxiety of others, from afar and with a simple  sign . There are those who accuse us of abusing  gestural expressiveness , but the truth is that, with it, we save communication and avoid prolonging moments of uncertainty.Situation. We enter a bar, sit at a table and look at the waiter, desperate to make eye contact and get close to lift our order. He, from the other end of the hall and while he attends another table, he  signs us. And then we understand everything: in a minute he will be with us.Situation two. In the office, our boss commissioned us an urgent job and we went out looking for our partner to pass the directives. He, on the phone, looks at us, stretches the index finger of his left hand and supports the yolk on the palm of his right hand: in a short moment he will end the call to attend our consultation. A simple  gesture that produces magic: no matter the despair, urgency or anxiety it takes I get the other person, with a ninja movement we neutralize him, slow him dry, and our next interlocutor stays calm. Because if there is one thing that is not discussed, is that when someone needs  a minute , there is no emergency that can't wait.
