Good life either requires intelligence, ignorance or just being a decent human being. The journey matters, but so does the destination.
The older I get the more I see how much I still don't understand and how many things I don't know. This is why I really enjoy my Kindle (and after seven years the darn thing still works flawlessly) for reading books of various topics. Here are some book titles I think they're worth reading:
- Extreme Ownership,
- The Goal,
- The God Delusion,
- The Selfish Gene,
- The Gorilla Mindset,
- Mistakes Were Made (but not by me).
Some of them are more technical, some self-help but those are the ones that really made an impact on me.
Professionally I was a software developer before I pursued a management career. Now I manage engineering teams to create and grow.
In my personal life I still code, have a couple of open-source projects, bike, hike, enjoy a good wine here and there and am in a happy relationship.
