A very interesting book full of inspiring quotes and strong assertions.I highly recommend read this book, especially for those who feel down on unmotivated.
The flow of ideas is very smooth and language is simple
Some of the quotes and assertion I really liked:
“Don’t strive for certainty: Big picture thinkers are comfortable with ambiguity. THey don’t try to force every observation or piece of data into pre formulated mental cubby holes.”
“Most people are married mentally to the status quo. They want what was , not what can be. They seek safety and simple answers.”
“A conclusion is the place where you get tired of hiking.”
“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from the old ones.”
One of my favorite is the Common Thinking chapter:
If you want to become a good thinker then start preparing yourself for the possibility of becoming unpopular.
I believe this so true. Common thinking is why most people are mediocre, it’s the main change demotivator. It’s why democratic systems yields bad leaders and presidents! I really believe so!
