The Courage To Be Disliked is an extremely logic oriented look at happiness and life.

Snippets of it may sound patronising at times but it leaves you with more questions than answers - It forces you to think!๐Ÿ™‚

Some takeaways via a ๐Ÿงต..

The world in itself is simple. Life in itself is simple.

It is WE who make it complicated.

How ?
By Comparison.

We all live in a subjective world that we OURSELVES have given meaning to from OUR perspective.

So how can then they be the same for all ? ๐Ÿ™‚

Ever observed how the world seems beautiful at times , sometimes mean & selfish , at times helpful ?

So does the world actually keep changing or does our subjective world change due to the change in our projections ? ๐Ÿค”

Something worth reflecting upon !

Invest in yourself. Read.
Self educate. Think in isolation !

Everything in life can teach you when you possess the right mindset.
Read across a wide spectrum,for the scenes change but the behaviours & outcomes don't.

#LetsTalkMoney by @monikahalan is all about US understanding OUR Needs & Wants, & constructing OUR Money Box.

It helps BUILD a system in place , rather than focusing on a (non existent ) single shot solution.

MUST READ FOR ALL !

Firstly, build your own system to manage Cash Inflows & Outflows .
Find a way that's least troublesome but automatically separates the 2.

#Budgeting & #Allocation must not be a cumbersome task !

Easy bifurcation helps in Better mapping.

Moving onto Emergencies . This pandemic has made so many of us realise the importance of it .

Another interesting facet :
Unwillingness to take risks comes from the FEAR of not having money when needed - typically why Bank F.Ds are preferred.

Hence the EMERGENCY fund.

" Zen and the Art of Happiness "

It's a simple book but it makes you think .

Few of my takeaways ( with random 2 min doodles).
๐Ÿ‘‡
Firstly,
What is Zen ?

#Zen is a Japanese word that is derived from the Sanskrit word Dhyana meaning "Meditation" .
2/21
Zen is a journey of exploration & a way of living that , in and of itself doesn't belong to any one religion or tradition as such.

Zen doesn't teach. It merely
points, enabling us to wake up & become aware.

Ever noticed how zen stories rarely have predefined morals? ๐Ÿค“
3/21

The zen of doing anything is doing it with a concentration of mind , a calmness & simplicity of mind, that brings the experience of enlightenment and, through that experience , happiness.

It could be something as mundane as sweeping or peeling potatoes !

MY TAKEAWAYS FROM ATOMIC HABITS by @JamesClear

A spectacular book that focuses on building HABITS following SYSTEMS to achieve RESULTS - Instead of the traditional GOAL BASED approach.

It's a highly engaging read with plenty of practical examples .

#BookRecommendation
2/20
Your OUTCOMES are a lagging measure of your HABITS . Although difficult to appreciate on a daily basis , they MATTER IMMENSELY.
Change your habit ,to change the outcome.

It doesn't matter WHERE you are currently,
CHANGE YOUR HABIT TO CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR LIFE!๐Ÿ‘‡
3/20
You do not RISE to the level of your GOALS .You FALL to the level of your SYSTEMS .

Why so ?

Both WINNERS & LOSERS have a Goal . What then sets them apart ?

It's having a SYSTEM in place.
Systems are forever & they result in continuous SELF IMPROVEMENT .

IKIGAI : A reason for BEING .

I have structured the essential bits & pieces of the book in a flow for easy understanding + compiled some handwritten notes.

As always these are just MY TAKEAWAYS from the book :))

Firstly what is #IKIGAI ?

The Japanese call it - A REASON TO JUMP OUT OF BED EACH MORNING.

It's a convergence of 4 things .
*What you love
*What you are good at
*What you can get paid for
*What the world needs .

We need to find our Ikigai in life!

Let's begin with DAILY HEALTH HABITS.

A SOUND MIND IN A SOUND BODY .

Both our MIND & BODY must be exercised well to avoid deterioration in latter years of life .

Have a mental workout routinely by stepping out of your COMFORT ZONE.
Expose yourself to CHANGE.

By far the best book I have read in a long long time.
One can simply begin from any page,for each note makes so much sense that we get lost in them , sometimes chuckling & often amazed .

Here are MY learnings from
" A Book of Simple Living" by Ruskin Bond.
2/22
The book is enriched with life lessons . Most profound of all for me being ,

#Life is simple despite all its hardships and complexities .
For the purpose of life is to live ....

Now, how we choose to live our life makes it simple or complicated.

Do we chase #happiness by climbing infinite mountains in the quest for fame & wealth or do we savour the goodness in the little things that often come our way but go unnoticed and unappreciated by us ?
For ultimately , " It is the little things that matter the most ".

I wanted to chime in on Fred's thoughtful thread here. I've also thought a lot about this and have a couple thoughts and of course a #bookrecommendation.

A talk/speech: the "expert" is talking at the audience for 90%+ of the session.

An interactive workshop: the facilitator is engaging learners in dialogue, reflection, and interaction for most of the session.

Yes? No? Thoughts?

#HigherEd
And I strongly agree with Fred that we should be transparent about which type of session we're offering.

I'm often asked to recommend books on Indian history, culture, etc. but am unable to respond to each request individually.

To address those numerous requests, here's a thread on India-specific book recommendations.
Philosophies of India by Heinrich Zimmer.

A book that was edited and published by Joseph Campbell after the author's death.

Excellent both as an in-depth resource book & as an overview to understanding Indian spirituality.
