Kenya 4 ー 15 Lessons Learnt by Reading The Alchemist in Portuguese

English, Español, Français, 日本語

(1) Do you like reading? (2) Do you actually read? (3) Do you read fiction, non-fiction, or both?

These three questions are quite good to learn about yourself.

As for myself, (1) I like reading because I am passionate about learning new things (otherwise, you will live only in your limited world). (2) As much as I would like to read, I haven’t been able to catch up with my book lists (although I read around 30 articles per week), because I use the limited time for other things.

This time, as mentioned in the previous entry, I wanted to organize my past by throwing out  books and documents, so I decided to give it a try. And interestingly, it was not difficult to figure out how to do so, because the majority of people who scanned hard copy used the same items, and addressed high level of satisfaction, so why not learning from others?

Embrace the Multifaceted

2016_3_13 Multifaceted

“Pick one thing, not many. Otherwise you end up failing on all.”

In my childhood, many adults told me this, and accepting this was difficult for someone like me who was curious about many different things.
But luckily we live in a society where such a diversity is embraced and even needed more and more, and it seems OK to be interested in many different things. To highlight this, let me talk about three different sources: (1) exhibition, (2) book and (3) video.
