I really like this book!
on 20 June 2011
I stumbled upon this book years ago, and forgot about it. Then I remembered and decided to buy it. I really like the wisdom this book imparts. Every now and again, I'll look at it, and remind myself of its lessons. For example, the way of the warrior tells you to be present: to show up and do whatever you have to do 100%. This really struck a chord with me, because there are many things in life we might not necessarily want to do, but we still have to do them all the same. Like clean. Or work an occasional dull job. Instead of focusing on the fact that I don't really want to do it, I instead remember the above quote, and decide that since I have to do it anyway, I might as well do it 100% - that shift in attitude makes such a difference. Makes the task joyful actually, and makes me look good, because I've performed the task well. That is just one thing this book has taught me.
