10 valuable things I learned from books

    1. Being a generalist can be a lot better than being a specialist

    From David Epstein's 'Range'. Also, late blooming is totally cool.

    2. You don't need to have a clearly defined path

    Carve your own and don't worry about what you wanna be when you grow up!

    From Paul Millerd's 'The Pathless Path' (and other books, too)

    3. Evolution is fascinating

    From Richard Dawkins' 'Unweaving The Rainbow', which made me understand a lot of basic things about science when I was younger.

    4. You can communicate so much meaning through humor

    From Simon Rich's short stories.

    5. The more you practice mindfulness, the less you'll miss out on life

    From Cory Muscara's 'Stop Missing Your Life'.

    6. You need to know what your values are

    And live a life that aligns with them. From Mark Manson's 'The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck'.

    7. It's entirely possible to skip the line

    wink wink

    8. We're all still children at heart

    And we need to take that into account in the context of romantic relationships. From The School of Life's 'Relationships'.

    9. Chill out

    From Marcus Aurelius' 'Meditations', Epictetus' Handbook, and Seneca's works, but also from Ryan Holiday and Massimo Pigliucci who are great vulgarizers of Stoicism (is "vulgarizers" the right word?)

    10. There is freedom in accepting that we won't have time for everything

    Get rid of that to-do list. From Oliver Burkeman's Four Thousand Weeks.
