Blockchain (Book 34/52)

This week I didn’t read only 1 book, but quite a few. When you start reading about Blockchain and the potential of this technology it’s difficult to stop.

Please do yourself a favor, start learning about this technology and start future proofing your life. If we don’t evolve with the machines we’ll get left behind.

 

Once Upon A time in Russia Summary (Book 33 of 52)

Once Upon a Time in Russia is a very interesting and easy read about the rise of Russia after democracy.

It gives you a great idea of how Russia developed and ended up where it is today. It covers the rise and fall of Boris Berzovshy with side stories about Alexander Litvinenko (KGB agent poisoned with plutonium 210) and Roman Abramovich who now owns the Chelsea football club. But my favorite parts were where he spoke about Vladimir Putin and you got a sense of the man from another perspective.

The One Thing Summary (Book 31/52)

This book has some amazing and very practical advice in it and it’s great to see how simple things can be if we choose to focus on the right things.

So what is your ONE thing this week?
