Punctilious should remind you of punctures – small holes in tyres – that result in the release of air from the tyre. A punctilious person will not permit any such puncture or hole in his or her work that can result in compromising his or her quality of work.
This book is a must-read for everyone, especially because of the times we live in. Technology makes it possible for the governments around the world to monitor what we think, say, or do. Bots are able to shape public opinions on a massive scale. The 140 and 280 character limits on social networking sites have damaged our capacity to think critically and empathise with others.
Stale eggs or even un-cooked eggs smell extraordinarily bad, don’t they? The word “egregious” should remind you of stale and un-cooked eggs on someone’s face. Eww!
The book is a light read with good pacing. It has gunfights, sex, and drama. The city Tampa feels like San Francisco with a little bit of Cuba and Japan thrown into the mix. The environment, scenery, and protagonist totally give you the feel of Blade runner. Hence fans of this genre would totally love it.
The word “altruistic” can be thought of as combination of two words- “all” and “true”. When we are true to one and all , we go beyond our individualistic concerns , for the sake of the well being of others. Thus, we become “altruistic”. Remember thus!
“Deep Work” is a reminder by Cal Newport that we can live a more fulfilled life, a happier life, if only we started focusing, avoiding distractions.
Focus on small goals. Inculcate Micro Habits. Change thyself!
“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”
Be Bold but cautious.

A must read.
“You don’t choose to be born. You just are. And your birth is your destiny, some say. I say the hell with that. And I should know. I was born not just once but five times. And five times I learned the same lesson. Sometimes in life, you have to grab your so-called destiny by the throat and wring its neck.”
