Fiction and other random books

The Dice Man: A fantastic book about a psychiatrist who put his entire life, career and marriage at risk, when he starts making life decisions with a die. This was one of my first books and it’s still a favorite of mine. It’s very thought-provoking and funny as well.

Nineteen Eighty-Four really shouldn’t need an introduction, but for some reason very few people seem to have read it. Absolutely amazing book about a futuristic society. The book has so many layers that just keep expanding on you. Must read!

The Little Blue Book: The Essential Guide to Thinking and Talking Democratic NERD ALERT! This is a book about political communication and communication in general. It will change the way you view political debates forever and is very easy to read. A great read for everybody with an interest in politics and/or communication.

Do you want to be a loser?

Last weekend I visited one of my oldest and best friends in Germany. One of the great things about our friendship is that the conversation naturally flows from toilet stories over politics, society and parenthood and crude inside jokes. We pretty much cover everything.

My friend works with some real characters and one of them recently offered this little golden nugget of wisdom:

Winner in highschool, loser in life.

While this obviously doesn’t always hold true, I really like the underlying message. While the “carpe diem”-cliche may seem attractive at first, long-term planning is the way to go. In training and in life.

Training for today, this week or even this month is better than not training at all, but if you really want to kick it up a notch, you have to think long-term. How hard and how heavy you can go this week doesn’t really matter if you’re not training next week. Slow and steady wins the race.

Develop a philosophy over time and stick to it. Results will come.
