Outlive the life

 

Nadživeti život Outlive the life Kenan Crnkić

   "Outlive the life" - Kenan Crnkic

 

And it is time for the final book in this trilogy Life-Happiness-Success..

And even now, someone might say: „Yeah, yeah, let me guess. Small rugged book, full of interesting and educational stories/anecdotes, filled with quotations and Kenan’s look on life, happiness, friendship... Is it worth to buy the book full of stories that can be found everywhere?

Let me answer honestly: Yes, book is written in similar style similar to the previous one. Thirty-three stories from all over the world, mixed with quotations and Kenan’s thoughts. Is it worth it?

Be careful which wolf you feed

 

Pazi kojeg vuka hraniš Kenan Crnkic

 "Be careful which wolf you feed" - Kenan Crnkic

 

And again, Kenan Crnkic. And again, one lovely little rugged book that you can finish in one afternoon.

And again, some familiar stuff is written here.

And again...a good book that you will often return to. 😊

To be honest, I like this book even more than the previous one.

If previous book ("7 secrets to success") talked about success (obviously 😊), then this one talks about happiness.

But, here you won’t find classical rules/laws/skills for reaching happiness.

7 secrets to success

 

7 tajni uspeha Kenan Crnkić

7 secrets to success - Kenan Crnkic

 

Life quite often (or maybe all the time?) has strange and unusual paths. In the period when I decided to reread and review books written by Kenan Crnkic, a news appeared that the mentioned gentleman will hold the promotion of his latest book and a small lecture in Belgrade, in one bookstore in Knez Mihailova Street.

Malo li je reći da je knjižara bila prepuna ljudi željnih da čuju predavanje, a zatim dobiju potpisanu knjigu i slikaju se sa Kenanom Crnkićem? A oni koji su želeli, mogli su i da po par minuta popričaju nasamo sa njim o temama koje su ih interesovale. Zaista zanimljiv i neobičan čovek, moram priznati, čak i kao da je pomalo mističan…ali, više o tome neki drugi put. 🙂

The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life

 

Budni u 5

The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life - Robin Sharma

 

I have a great respect for Robin Sharma. I really believe that there is great strength behind his words and that he is not (and will never be) one of those that write generic texts in motivational books.

Ever since "The monk who sold his Ferrari", Robin keeps trying to return people on the path of believing in yourself. Some people criticized him that he writes/speaks too idealistically and that is not simple to apply his views of success and happiness on modern world. But, between those motivational writers/speakers that write (literally) fairy tales and fantasies in their books, and others that play on the card of rough (and painful) realism and pragmatism, Robin carves his own path of...let's just call it... "idealistic realism", that makes people like his words/thoughts, but that also makes people believe that Robin's ideas are achievable. And I believe that is the reason why people like and respect Robin.

The 5 Second Rule

 

 

I think it is the best to start (and also end) the review of this book by trying to answer three most common questions about this book that are buzzing the Web:

  • Should I really read this book if I already saw videos on Youtube about "the 5 second rule" (in further text: 5SR)?
  • Is this book more focused on "copy/paste" of people's posts from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram how 5SR changed their lives (and how they are praising Mel Robbins)?
  • Does the 5SR really work?

The Why Cafe

 

 

The more time passes, the more I am convinced that people, when it comes to (upcoming) books from category "Populogy" (as I like to call "Popular psychology"... maybe I should make it a ™?) have unrealistic expectations. These books are are constantly getting negative reviews and marks, followed by comments like "nothing new" or "I already know all of this"... Well, if you "know" all of this, why don't you change your life, I ask them. But, they fail to give me any proper answer.

Some books are simply there to remind us about things that we already know, or maybe writer had a desire to share his personal thoughts or experiences with readers, and if someone recognizes themselves in those written words, great. And that's it... at least, that is how I interpret some books. 🙂

The War of Art – Borba sa Otporom

 

The War of Art

The War of Art – Steven Pressfield

 

Kao baš, baš mlada osoba, pročitao sam “Ognjenu kapiju” Stivena Presfilda i sećam se da sam uživao u svakoj stranici knjige (a možda bi mogao i da ga ponovo pročitaš jer se ne sećaš romana – prim. podsvesti). I od tada je prošlo dosta godina i gospodin Stiven i ja smo se razišli, sve dok nisam skoro video da internetu ovaj naslov. I učinio mi se zaista interesantnim. Borba sa raznim mentalnim blokadama, koje nas sprečavaju da budemo kreativni i uspešni, ispisano od strane pisca? Moram priznati, pomalo neobično. 🙂

Čudilo me je da još uvek nije bio urađen prevod ovog dela za naše tržište, a nešto mi se nije poručivalo iz insotranstva. Meh, pomislio sam, kada dođe pravi trenutak, knjiga će naći svoj put do mene.

E zabole me – Suptilna umetnost življenja

 

E, zabole me

E, zabole me – Mark Manson

 

Od trenutka uzimanja ove knjige („E, zabole me“) u ruke, postao sam oprezan. Takav sam pogotovo kod knjiga koje se bave temama motivacije, lične promene, popularne psihologije, spiritualne transformacije…

Nešto mi je bilo čudno kod ove knjige. Veoma hvaljena, prodata u milione primeraka, a opet kod mnogih kritikovana zbog načina izražavanja autora (dosta psovki) i delova gde autor priča o svojim neuspesima. E, zabole me… 😀

Po završetku čitanja ove knjige, sedeo sam neko vreme zamišljen. Onda sam odložio knjigu na jednu policu, sa namerom da je u skorije vreme ponovo pročitam. Inače, polica koju sam spomenuo? To je polica koju zovem “Polica sa knjigama koje treba pročitati pod obavezno bar jednom u životu, a preporučljivo je i više puta, i koje bi mogle da utiču na vaš život”. Znam, znam, dugačak je naziv za policu, ali to je njen radni naziv, give me a break. 😀

Najbogatiji čovek Vavilona – Zlatni zakoni kao put do bogatstva?

 

Najbogatiji čovek Vavilona

  Džordž S. Klejson – Najbogatiji čovek Vavilona

 

Ova knjiga se vrti više od 90 godina po svetu. Prvo u obliku pamfleta, gde je svaki pamflet bio priča za sebe, dok na kraju nisu objedinjeni u jednu knjigu. Da li je knjiga vredna komplimenta “bestseler” ili je sve to samo prenaduvana priča?

Hajde da saznamo. 🙂

Kako bi bilo najlakše opisati “Najbogatiji čovek Vavilona”? Možda najbolje kao zbirku simpatičnih, lepo napisanih i poučnih priča, smeštenih u dane sjaja i bogatstva legendarnog grada Vavilona. Junaci ovih priča, kao što su Arkad, Matona, Dabasira i Šaru Nade, prepričavaju nam svoje dogodovštine iz mladosti, koje su ih naučile vrednosti novca i kako taj isti novac treba koristiti da bi se on umnožavao, a samim tim i bogatstvo uvećavalo. O njihovim promašajima i lošim potezima u odnosu na novac i ljude, kao i nekim jednostavnim zakonima kojih su se pridržavali, a kojih su ih kasnije učinili bogatim i poznatim.

Ikigai – Tajne Japana za dug i srećan život

 

 

Ikigai

Ikigai – Ektor Garsija i Fransesk Miraljes

 

Ikigai je jedan od onih termina (ili, bolje reći, koncepata) za koji je teško naći pravi prevod, slično izrazima  “maktub”, “raison d’être” ili “flow”. Ali, ako bismo već morali da nađemo neki prevod, to bi moglo da bude “radost zbog stalne zauzetosti”. Znači, govorili bi o nečemu kao smislu našeg postojanja (slično “raison d’être”).

Knjiga “Ikigai” Ektora Garsije i Franseska Miraljesa me je jednostavno privukla naslovom, odnosno, povezanošću sa Japanom. Mada, možda sam se nadao i da će mi dati drugačiji uvid u neke stvari u odnosu na ono na šta nas navodi popularna zapadnjačka filozofija o srećnom životu.

Da li je knjiga vredna čitanja? Saznajte u daljem tekstu. 🙂
