Camino de Santiago în România

Notă – guest post de: Javier Quesada.

Deși sunt spaniol, n-am făcut Camino până când m-am mutat la București. Vara 2015 mi-am împlinit un vis: am făcut Camino de Santiago. Este vorba de un pelerinaj pe jos de mai mult de o sută de km până la mormântul Apostolului Santiago. A fost ceva de neuitat.

Dacă doriți să cumpărați niște icoane la un preț bun, puteți lua în considerare site-ul Am cumpărat de la ei 4 icoane, format mare. Au ajuns prompt, plata a fost făcută prin transfer bancar, totul a decurs bine. Transport gratuit la livrări peste 80 de lei. Mai jos, o fotografie cu cum arată icoanele. Practic, nu sunt pictate de mână, ci sunt imprimate. E un preț bun, însă, și poate fi o soluție de buget foarte OK.

“Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder”, by Nassim-Nicholas Taleb – the fourth book I like a lot

I read “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder“, by Nassim-Nicholas Taleb.

The main message fot eh book is that we should not seek to live a life without any errors, but instead learn to constantly overcome small errors, thus becoming stronger, and thus capable of handling big problems, when they arise.

Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, and proposing that things be built in an antifragile manner. Extremely ambitious and multidisciplinary, Antifragility provides a blueprint for how to behave-and thrive-in a world we don’t understand and which is too uncertain for us to even try to understand. He who is not antifragile will perish.

About “Anything You Want” by Derek Sivers

In “Anything You Want” book by Derek Sivers (“40 lessons for a new kind of entrepreneur”), you find lessons from 10 years of experience in one hour, designed to be immediately usable for your own business or project.

I liked the book a lot, very nice. I had just one issue with it – you said something like that the main focus of an entrepreneur is to remember he/she is happy, so if at some point they don’t like the business anymore, the could sell it, like Derek did, instead of struggling with it a lot.

I think there’s a difference between what makes me happy on the short term (eating ice cream) and on the long-term (not getting sick by eating too much ice cream for longer periods of time). So, yes, you can definitely go out of a business if that makes you happy in the short term. But if you think you can move the world in the long run, you could give that business a chance.

Other than that, a nice book! Recommended.

Wonder (2017) – the seventh movie I like a lot

Yesterday I watched Wonder (2017).

It’s the seventh movie I like a lot, after Le Notti di Cabiria (1957), The Grey (2012), Gattaca (1997), Saving Mr. Banks (2013)The Butterfly Effect (2004), Inside Out (2015).

I looked at the list above, and noticed that most of the movies in the list are dramas, and only two are comedies. Only one movie is an action movie. I noticed I tend to avoid dramas, and watch action movies, and comedies more. That’s a bit of a strange choice, given the context.

“Wonder” is a delicate movie, gives you some perspectives on life. I don’t consider it very realistic, it gives an unrealistic optimism over life. And I think that’s a good thing, movies should do that. You don’t watch a movie for the brutal truth, but for the good it should bring in you.

Otherwise, it’s a powerful movie, with tough emotions. I haven’t cried, though. :)
