Disclaimer: I have written multiple book summaries in the past as well have made multiple presentations of books, but, this book is unlike your average life-changing book.

The numerous examples are…
Have you ever been in the situation when you have a lot of ideas to do the task, but for some or the other reasons ex: procrastination, laziness etc. you end up doing a good job but a notch lesser than what you would have wanted to do? In addition, now you are less willing to make the modifications despite the fact that you have a chance to improve. This might happen due to barriers introduced due to overcoming authorities or because of increased hard work per unit of improvement made, or might be because of some other reason.
Here’s an idea that can help you extract more learning from your classes and deliver more in the corporate meeting.
If you have been a university student at any point in your lifetime, you will agree with me that different professors and teachers have different teaching styles. Some are fluid like water, and you can easily understand them, whereas others are more like thick shake, difficult to gulp down at one go.
It leads to differences in understanding between the things teachers teach in the class and the concepts students can understand. Communication gap is what some call it. Others…

Only the strongest who can make their mark on the first battle will only be rewarded with the prize, at the world stage. But, everyone has to keep in mind, including the strongest ones, to prepare for the upcoming fight. A win or a good show of strength helps in the next fight too. A win ensures that he/she has not…
Have you ever done a prank on one of your closest relatives or friends, that made them think that their world has fallen apart? Or according to them, you may have crossed the line.
Calling pranks is a skill that only a few people relate to. Not everyone wakes up with the thought of pranking others.
Serious pranksters are also ready for the repercussions. Especially if it is being done with a stranger. Or someone whom you just know, but not very closely.
The actual sense of a prank is achieved only when it triggers the deepest of emotions. And…
[A personal habit experiment] And used those hours to do something much more productive.
Like a typical person inundated with a large inflow of information every day, I too wasted hours of my productive time on useless things such as surfing Youtube, Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp.
Now, I had already taken care of minimizing my time waste at Instagram and Facebook by simply uninstalling them and not using them. However, that’s a story for another time.

Scott Adkins starrer movie. Genre: Crime/Action
This movie is directed by Jesse V Johnson which came out in 2019.
The movie focuses on few limited characters and retrospective storytelling. Scott Adkins narrates the past in the first person.
There is lots of action, a bit of emotion which makes for not a great watch but just okay.
It’s a story of the transformation of the movie’s protagonist; sort of “Creed” stuff with lots of fighting leading to the transformation and in a prison. It includes graphic and mental storytelling of the circumstances which lead the protagonist to that stage. …
It is a heartwarming story of the relationship between a daughter and her father who has raised her without her mother. The script of the movie is about the daughter’s dream of studying in London and all the subplots revolve around this bigger theme. The story is not all complicated and very easy to understand even though there are a number of subplots but nothing that would require to put your brain to work during the movie.
