I've been accumulating some #books for my #2022 #reading.
A thread! 🧵🧵🧵

Here's some of my selections:
“COVID-19: The Great Reset,” by Klaus #Schwaub – I need to know what he and that rascal #Soros are up to. This book was fully written and published by June 2020. I am nearly convinced these #Communist narratives and #COVID are manufactured by about 5-10 individuals.
“Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World,” by David Epstein

All the books (50 books) I read this year and a one-line review on them!

A Mega thread!

My last thread for 2021 🧵

#Books #Reading

Let's get started 👇

A few years back, I used to read articles which used to say a CEO read 40 books this year and I always thought how?
It's all about consistently reading a few pages every day!

2020- I read 15-25 pages(not every day) - I read 34 books in 2020

2021- I read 25-35 pages every night before sleeping and 100-150 pages every weekend

Ok, now let’s go through those 50 books 👇
1/n

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight

Nike started off by importing high-quality, low-cost running shoes from Japan

What’s shocking is the number of times the business came to an end but came out stronger every time!

Pain Coaching is the approach I devised to help people who suffer persistent #pain.

What do I help them do?

Reconnect with what matters.

In so doing, their life improves.

To keep developing, I have daily practices.

Here they are: a #thread.

#thepaincoach

👇
1. Reading practice

Daily reading.

Some factual, some development, some fiction.

I take notes.

I read slowly.

Here are some great tips from @RyanHoliday



#reading
2. Daily exercise.

You choose what this looks like.

I choose running, 5 x a week.

I have a programme designed by @Ultra_Damo

The other days I walk.

I also practice different movements and exercises through the day.

So can you.

Reduced reading span is a hazard for knowledge seekers. We gotta fix it right away. Here’s my thoughts and story. 👇🧵
RIL (Read It Later) has cut short our reading-span and we became skip-junkies. We are loosing out on knowledge and have become merely good-content-collectors, that’s all.
A page in a book was earmarked to indicate “read again later” to gain different/more perspective, be motivated again.

🚨 NEW 🥳 BOWMAN 🍾 AND 🍾 DUMITRIU 🥳 PAPER 🚨

Better Together: Why the govt's plans to crack down on Big Tech mergers and acquisitions will hurt competition and UK startups.

tenentrepreneurs.org/research/bette…
The govt is considering new rules to allow the CMA to more easily stop companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple from buying smaller ones. This is part of a wider set of reforms to regulate these companies the govt is considering.

gov.uk/government/con…
These proposals are meant to strengthen competition.

But by making "exit" harder for startups, and curbing platforms' ability to use M&A to move into new markets and compete there, the plans risk making the UK's tech sector *less* competitive.

This is a brilliant thread 🧵by @uglygame

A fraudster with a shady #Crypto company looking to invest in football clubs (#PerthGlory / #Nantes)

It's a great tale - It also links to some seriously questionable characters...

#ChristopherSamuelson
⚽️💸🤔
The link is #AlanJohnFrankHitchins

#Portsmouth & #AstonVilla fans may have seen his name before.

Think mining scams, laundering money via offshore & criminal networks

fansnetwork.co.uk/football/ports…
Mining scams can be a brilliant way to con investors (pump & dump) and because of their erratic revenue streams & international make-up, they can be great vehicles to launder money through.

Maybe if you've just robbed a bank and need a getaway vehicle 💸

Building Expertise

Even if you are someone who dabbles in multiple topics, you can still build expertise.

Find HOW from the following threads🧵
1/ If you have multiple interests, it means you are more curious than others.

In fact, I had to go past 200 books to understand my keen interest in (cognitive + behavioral) psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy.

And mind you, I’m an economist by training.

So Have Patience!
2/ If you are still struggling to pick a topic, then choose a topic based on something you already find fascinating and love to learn.

For instance, if your bookshelf is filled with leadership & Development books, then there lies the hint.

15 Effective Ways Clever People Handle Toxic People

|Thread
1. They ignore attention seekers

Often toxic people compulsively seek attention at all costs.If this is the case, the best course of action is to pay little or no attention to that person, and instead spend more time with the quieter and more reserved members of the group.
2. They do not trust or share secrets with gossipers

They will share deep secrets with people and they will frequently judge or gossip about people behind their backs. It’s a divisive and manipulative method of gaining friends or power in a social group. Do not take the bait.

2/7 @IntrinsicInv

I love Ensemble's mission and blog content. High quality all around.

This quarter, they focused on their positions in $NTDOY and $ILMN.

Nintendo has a long-term generational mindset, whereas the competition thinks in far shorter time-frames.

In-house editor @whatallydid shares a book recommendation, just in time for the weekend. If you’ve been looking for something immersive, look no further. #reading #fantasy #nkjemisin #bookrecco
@whatallydid says: "I was late to the N.K Jemisin phenomena, but I'm almost grateful that I didn't discover her before. Because her Broken Earth series got me through the first few terrible weeks of lockdown."
I don't want to give away too much of the plot because it's SO interesting. But at the time, the world seemed to be spinning off its axis and in Jemisin's books, we learn what happens after the world ends. Again. And again. And again.

'Leaders Eat Last' by @simonsinek

I had mixed thoughts on this one. I found the overall message on point, even when disagreeing on some observations. Overall, an engaging anthology on leadership.

June #professionaldevelopment Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek https://www.goodreads.com/bo
I anticipated reading 'Leaders Eat Last' during this challenge. I enjoyed Sinek's TED talk and his book 'Start with Why' (September's book) was one of the first LPD books I picked up.

《DevOps实践指南》第五章·选择合适的价值流作为切入点
绿地项目还是棕地项目,交互型系统还是记录型系统。
谨慎地选择DevOps转型的切入点,在组织的某些领域内进行实验、学习并创造价值,不会给整个组织带来不可逆的后果。同时,通过这种方式,我们能够建立稳固的群众基础。
绿地项目通常是指一些试点项目。
棕地项目是指那些已经服务客户的成熟产品或服务。
棕地项目在转型时可能会面临巨大的阻碍,特别是没有自动化测试,或者紧耦合架构导致团队无法独立开发、测试和部署。
记录型系统的变化速度通常较慢,并且有监管和合规性要求(例如SOX)。高德纳公司称这种系统为“类型1”,侧重于“做得正确”。
交互型系统的变化速度通常较快,因为它需要快速响应反馈,通过实验找到最能满足客户需求的方式。高德纳公司称这种系统为“类型2”,侧重于“做得快速”。
