Amidst all the content I consume every week, through this weekly series of ‘My Weekly Learnings’, sharing highlights of content pieces that caught my eye and provided more value than I could imagine.
(P.S. Every Sunday, I share a list of what to read, listen, and watch, in my weekly series, The Last 7 Days. You can check out the editions here).
1. There is no life of only pleasure and no pain, of only success and no failure, of only acceptance and no rejection. To have one, you must have the other. [Mark Manson]
2. The moral panic over social media will continue to distract us from more important, less sensational problems like sleep and family closeness. Is this moral panic justified? [Nir Eyal] (Read more here – https://www.nirandfar.com/social-media-and-teens)
3. The purpose of life is the life of purpose [Robin Sharma] (Learn more here – https://open.spotify.com/episode/7jKed5UOAgPUBHCwmvP0ax)
4. The faster you jump to conclusions, the more likely you are to default to fashionable thinking. [David Perell] (Read more here – https://perell.com/essay/how-philosophers-think/)
5. Most people don’t want accurate information, they want validating information. Growth requires you to be open to unlearning ideas that previously served you. [James Clear]
Having read ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ (the review of which can be read here) and ‘Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari’ (the review of which can be read here), this book is in a similar yet a different ballgame altogether.
‘Who will cry when you die?’ is in a similar genre as the other ones mentioned above, what makes it different is the 101 Lessons that are broken down from the previous books – which are straightforward and to the point.
These 101 Lessons also act as daily reminders to living a better life each day – every lesson needs to be understood, to be implied and to be executed in our day-to-day lives.
In my opinion, this book shouldn’t be read in one go, but rather as lesson to lesson, as and when you apply it to your lives. One thing’s for sure, you’ll be a different person, an upgraded version of your previous self, once you imply these lessons to your life.
Looking for straightforward changes to your life – pick up this one and enjoy the process.
Book In Focus : Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari
Author : Robin Sharma
Irrespective of having read ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ or not, this book is a deep dive into the important lessons shared in that one – divided into tiny bits of inspirational material, one per day, in its entirety covering 365 days of the year.
This is one of those picks which aren’t supposed to be read altogether, but, one per day, depending on what date it is.
Why should you read the current day’s bit and not the ones before or after? Well, you should focus on the day you’re living, be in the present and not focus on the past or the future.
Coming back to the book, reading it everyday and also, at the same time, sharing it with others was a blessing in disguise, because the daily bits focused on such important elements of life – that it made it that much more valuable having focused on one bit – learning it, understanding it, implementing it – and then, focusing on the next bit on the next day.
That is how I’d summarize this book, it’s a good read, one that goes on for an entire year, and can also be repeated every other year too – because why not, those lessons have importance in our lives on a day-to-day.
This is also a perfect time to pick up this book, with 1st Jan coming along and you could then read it exactly for a year, start to end.
