Make Time by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky. A good productivity book that teaches various tips and tricks to get more out of your day without facing a burnout.

I always fall into the habit of starting several books at the same time and kind of switch between them depending on what I feel like reading. Right now I am reading A Short History of the World from H. G. Wells - I started this a long ago but then kind of forgot about it in favour of other books. This is for general education, my knowledge about history is very poor and I feel bad about it, I think it is a big part of being a cultured person.

Some interesting mindset stuff plus a different way to do business:

Not only do you not need to be the expert. You don’t want to be. Being an expert can often hurt your chances of success because it automatically focuses you on details that don’t move a business forward. Experts don’t usually make great entrepreneurs, yet most of them try to be one.

Fast forward to the present day, and I have a zero-hour work week with a fully self-managed business from which I collect passive distributions. The business has a CEO, it grows without me, and I collect 25% of the profits. It does over two million dollars per year in revenue with a wonderful margin for me. A few people have offered me $6,000,000 for the business, but I have declined.

Recently read The War Of Art By Stephen Pressfield.

Didn't really resonate with me. It was basically about doing the work even if you don't feel like it.

But like any good writer, he gave it a name and called it resistance.

Before that, I read Atomic Habits by James Clear.

Great book. I'd read similar books before (The Power of Habit, Eat that Frog, Deep Work, one other that was recommended on this forum...) but none of them were as jam-packed with value as Atomic Habits.

I haven't read all 32 pages of this thread but I imagine at least 8 people have mentioned this book previously. So I'll stop this review here. :)

Just Re-read Seneca's On the Shortness of Life (more of an essay published as a small book), and completed the Discourses of Epictetus.

The discourses come second to none in terms of preaching an internal locus of control. To an absurd degree.


Now reading thse two

“From crisis to opportunity”. Nothing particularly profound. So far so good.

I am going crazy after the perfect book on ancient economics. I want to do deep research on the ancient entrepreneurs and how they invested smart back in the day. If anyone knows good books please share!

I am currently finishing Grit, a great book about hard work, that it's a great compliment with Discipline, the book I read before.

Lately I'd been working in my discipline, something that I lack in my life and I need to improve. Do you know another books about the subject?
