This book came recommended by Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital. I respect Mark a lot, and his thought process is something I admire. So I had to push this book right up the reading list. It was a pleasant surprise the book is a short read, yet the impact and nuggets of knowledge it delivers are life-changing.
I am a left-brained individual who loves data and logic; however, being a marketing guy, I also had to develop over the past seven years my right-sided brain, the more intuition-based decision making. The book talks about how both brains need to be involved in making the investment decisions and how it is a crucial concept to being a fully-fledged human too.
The book draws from the Tao philosophy and applies it to investing and general living. Below are some highlights.
- Let the mind go there it will
- There is no greater evil than forcing others to change
- Nature’s way is simple and easy, but men prefer the intricate and the artificial
- By making a science out of an art, try are opting to be precisely wrong than generally right
- . . .trying to understand running water by catching it in a bucket
