2022 November. Sick.
For the whole month, I had at least one person sick at home.
Books I'm reading #
- 100 Go Mistakes and How to Avoid Them by Teiva Harsanyi. This is a pretty great book. The author always starts by explaining the context you need to know to get the mistake before talking about the mistakes and how to avoid them, which makes this book surprisingly good even when I'm pretty new to Golang.
Books I've read #
Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life: The New Acceptance and Commitment Therapy by Steven C. Hayes, Spencer Smith. While the book is not perfect, I recommend it if you're looking for a self-help book about ACT therapy. I did learn some important lessons. The best one is to notice when I'm avoiding something. If that happens, I pick a time limit for doing it. Doing something for 5 minutes is way better than not doing it at all. Sometimes I stop after that, but the feeling often vanishes, and I get the thing going. It's not a new idea for me, but the book put it in a way that made me appreciate it way more.
The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate: Discoveries from a Secret World by Peter Wohlleben. Interesting. Repetitive at times, but overall fun.
(In Polish) Inteligentny Inwestor XXI wieku Tom II. The second book about investing in the series. Some basics of investing in resources and properties. Some basics mixed with theories and stories from the author's life, but easy to read for someone like me without much experience in investing.
Books I didn't finish #
- Principles by Ray Dalio. Instead of the book, read this 1-star review of it.
- Cloud Native Go by Matthew Titmus. If you're interested, then I can recommend reading this 1-star review of it or this 3-star reviews to learn more about the book.
Elsewhere on the Web #
The end of the system of the world. Interesting narrative, especially if you're thinking about investing.
Commonplace Books. I finally got the idea about what the Commonplace book is about from this video—a place to put your important notes.
Why Billionaire Philanthropy Won't Solve Anything. Really good.
"I was an intern at SpaceX years ago, back it when it was a much smaller company — after Elon got hair plugs, but before his cult of personality was in full swing. I have some insight to offer here."
Personal Thoughts #
This month's theme is being sick. I was sick for half the month, and my kid was almost the whole month, and in the end, my Wife got ill. Crazy.
The good thing was that I cleaned up all articles I had saved in Pocket, and the piece of mind it gives me is great. Thanks to it, I read more books and overall feel less stressed and overwhelmed.
