Currently reading: Thinking In Systems by Donella Meadows. This has been on my list for ages; time to get into it. 📚
Finished reading: Honeybee by Craig Silvey. An incredible coming-of-age story of a boy with all the odds stacked against him. Wonderful to read a book set in my home town, too. 📚
Finished reading: So Good They Can’t Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love by Cal Newport 📚. A more realistic approach to finding enjoyment from a working life. I still feel stuck in my career, though.
Finished reading: Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport. 📚 Some good ideas that fortunately I’ve already implemented but the book has encouraged me to take it further.
Finished reading: The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Nicholas Taleb 📚 An interesting book that draws heavily on Thinking, Fast and Slow: Kahneman, Daniel which I also recommend you read. We humans need to apply back-stories to stochastic events in an effort to make sense of the world. This makes events logical and explicable to our mind. Yet if they were so logical, why would we have not predicted them?
