Trigger Point: Consciousness

I just came back from a … music performance. I went with three friends – the only thing they liked about is that it was over. I didn’t like it either but I enjoyed it greatly … as I thought it over and talked about it on the way home – I found a metaphor to describe my experience – trigger points! Read More »

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

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!
