The first book club call (50th Law) went really well and we are going to continue.
The book for May is Hannibal and Me.
If you want to join, please let us know.
Call is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, May 26th, @ 7PM ET.
We had the call this morning and it went really well. Lots of fascinating insight from this one, and dividing up the chapters and taking turns leading definitely led to a little more in-depth discussion.
Next month, we're going to move more in the direction of taking a biography and pulling the strategy insights out of it ourselves. The book we've chosen is a biography of Alexander the Great.
Tentatively scheduled for Sunday, July 7th at 7PM EST. If anyone else wants to get involved, shoot one of us a PM and we'll get you in on the preliminary Google doc.
Damn it, I work at a restaurant and Sundays are busy days. Would definitely attend on a Wednesday though, either way that book is on my priority reading list.
I will try to read that book, because I am very busy these days.
See you guys.
ps: I am learning english, sorry for any mistake.
yeah, man, try it. I remember the first couple of chapters being really good, so it is worth dive in, even if you don't finish it.
Paulo, are we still in line for the chapter breakdown between you Zach, and I? Of course everyone can add as they please. But to get the Google doc started, I plan on reading the whole book and then putting in notes for my assigned sections.
Clayton, we will make sure to include you. Please PM me your email address.
Sleep at 3:30AM, wake at 6:50AM, business call to States at 7AM. Groggy, but good call. Very solid planning.
Business research, tech stuff in the morning. Editing book. Get tired. Can't be tired. Go for run. Eat curry, bread, salad, fruit juice, iced tea. Wake up. Book is edited. Book is edited? Book is edited! Book is edited.
Why do I have 21 emails in my box? I cleared it two days ago, and I've been answering at least half the incoming email. Note: clear inbox after morning routine and most important thing tomorrow.
Happy. Tired. I wish I was strong enough to sleep 3.5 hours per night and do high level output without crashing, but I crash now. Answer emails tomorrow. I hate sleeping. Tired. Happy.
To be or not to be– that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles And, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep No more – and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to – ‘tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub, For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. There's the respect That makes calamity of so long life. For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, Th’ oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of disprized love, the law's delay, The insolence of office, and the spurns That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscovered country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of? Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pitch and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.—Soft you now! The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons Be all my sins remembered.
My farm is named Finca Tranquila. It is "off the grid" and is what is some call "a lazy man's farm" because we work at the pace of Nature and in accordance with Nature's practices.
