What does it say about me? That I am a sucker for self-improvement.
Besides that, it shows some of the guiding principles of my life that I TRY to follow.
The Dip, The Art of Non-Conformity & The Obstacle Is The Way. They are all about getting out of your comfort zone, expect obstacles and know that by overcoming them, great results will be had.
Exponential Organisations, Bold & Elon Musk biography: About the power of thinking big, taking moonshots, the fundamental principles to plan for them and the strategies on how to implement in today’s world.
Seneca, A Man’s Search For Meaning & Choose Yourself: Finding meaning in life.
Vagabonding & The 4 Hour Work Week: About the pleasure of exploring new cultures and the strategy on how to live that lifestyle.
