Upon entering the new Andrew Unumi recently set himself the challenge of reading up to 300 books by the end of this year. So far he has succeeded in hitting a base target of 20. The average reader reads 10-15 Books a year. When we read upon other cultures and ideas our own knowledge expands and this creates and experience of the future or rather ‘ideas’ we want to go towards, in our minds. This was the premise of starting this blog.
Andrew has touched on various self help and personal development topics ranging all the way from, networking to thinking skills. One of his most recent readings has been the Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf Dobelli. The book touches on almost 62 cognitive biases and regular thinking patterns we fall prey to in everyday life.
One of the more interesting biases in the book is the ‘Confirmation Bias’ this touches on the idea that once we confirm value in a idea or rather confirmation of it we ‘jump’ at the chance and cast out all possible negativity this is something that as human beings we have to rid ourselves of in order to move forward.
One of the safest ways to guarantee success is to rid of ourselves of a guarantee and instead focus on the ideal, within ourselves, that are going to carry our goals and ambitions into the future. Originally when Rolf wrote the book he started investing after seeing much successes in his businesses and upon observing other investors fail heavily and give into greed he decided that him and famed investor Nassim Taleb were going to create a set of cognitive biases that we has humans oft fall prey to. I don’t want to give away too much of the book as this may spoil the whole experience.
