“If a warrior needs solace he simply chooses anyone and expresses to that person every detail of his turmoil. After all, the warrior is not seeking to be understood or helped; by talking he’s merely relieving himself of his pressure.”
Carlos Castaneda

The Heart of Yoga by T.K.V. Desikachar

The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice

This is one of the better starting points you can find to gain an initial understanding of Yoga. A YOGA PRACTICE SHOULD ONLY BE TAKEN ON WITH THE GUIDANCE OF A TEACHER – so don’t read the book and hit the mat! The author is a prominent Yoga teacher and also happens to be the son of the Krishnamacharya – the man who brought Yoga back into the light in the 20th century. The book, if you take the time to read it, respectfully offers a comprehensive introduction of the vast system of Yoga. Most importantly it demonstrates how personal a Yoga practice can and should be.

The Inmates are Running the Asylum by Alan Cooper

n

A fun and inspiring book. A must read for anybody who is involved in the business of digital products – from websites, information systems, custom tailored software applications, hardware products driven by software – which, in our digital age, means practically everyone in business.

The book demonstrates in a simple and entertaining fashion – how software design effects our lives both as users and businesses who’s products are used by people. It offers interesting insights and perspectives on the manufacturing process of software, the people involved in it and their dispositions. You really need to appreciate the tremendous effect good design can have on lifestyle and business success.

The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge

n

I read this book many years ago (arghh… that would be about 10 years if you insist) and I picked up some nice ideas from it. It explains a concept called “systemic thinking” that is typical of people and organizations. It then points out a short-coming of system thinking and how this can actually threaten organizational existence. The author offers an interesting theory about “organizational learning” that as I remember it claims that organizations must always be working to improvement (learning) otherwise their inherent qualities will turn into failures. Some nice thoughts and inspiring thinking!

Inspiration

n

I love being inspired. I love it when it comes from within and when it doesn’t I love that I have accumulated people who’s presence is a source of inspiration for me. I try to navigate my life so that I approach everything I do with inspiration. I was raised to take on responsibilities seriously. This, to me, meant that when I “needed” to do something it “needed” to be done at any price. Things have changed. When I feel uninspired, I try to do something to get inspired rather then doing something then shouldn’t be done without inspiration. Read More »
