Ok, I wouldn’t say that just one book deserves to have own blog post but this book by Rich Karlgaard definitely owns it. Here are my thoughts and a book review.
I try to keep my reading pace and after I finish one book right away opening another. Don’t wanna get lazy again.
The last three books are Everything is fucked by Mark Manson, Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon and finally Late Bloomers by Rich Karlgaard which I’m gonna talk about in this post.
Anyway, let’s talk about Late bloomers.
With the books, it is the same as with movies. It’s not just about how the movie or book is good but it must also match your current mood.
And that’s what exactly happened to me. I couldn’t probably choose a better book in my current state of mind.
If you feel a little older and haven’t Bloomed yet this book is exactly for you.
There is a lot of talking about American SAT tests which for me as a Europen guy it’s not that authoritative cuz we don’t have any SAT tests.
But still the main though really resonated with me. the world is obsessed with early achievers. Youngest athletes, youngest artist, youngest billionaires all that popping at you form all the magazines and news around the world.
There is no problem with that. I admire these young superheroes from all the world as well but cuz of that the pressure on the normal people (as me) getting higher and you feel like the life just running between your hands.
Depression and anxieties are a big problem in society, especially for young teenagers.
This book gives you some recognition that there are many people who got successful in older age and the development of every person is individual.
My feeling through all book was like “WTF that’s exactly what I am thinking“. It doesn’t need to be called “Late blooming,” just let’s say a slower process to accomplish your way to a fulfilled life.
I can recommend this book to everyone who feels a little anxious about his age with no success. I am 30 years old already and still didn’t find the right way and purpose and I felt so great reading it.
It gives you the motivation to keep going and relax a little bit.
I kinda made a soft launch of my new project. I wrote one bigger post and from now will try to keep the weekly schedule. I don’t wanna talk about the name yet will keep it in secret for a while but don’t worry I will let you know soon.
It’s not anything special but hopefully, I will stick with that project for a while.
Stay with me. Emil
