Book of the Month: September 2022
General / 1st October 2022

English Think Like An Entrepreneur, Act Like A CEO is a great book for employees. It contains advice to improve your career. Though I do not agree with everything in the book, the others make sense. If we are able to practise the tips, I believe it is hard not to progress well in our career. 中文 上个月只读了一本书,不过还不到三星的评价,所以就不推荐它了。

Book of the Month: July 2022
General / 1st August 2022

English The Seven-Day Weekend is above the practice of running a business by taking care of workers’ welfare while making profits at the same time. Even if you are just an employee, there are still things to learn in this book, especially about pursuing our own passions. The author had prescient views that turned out to be true years after the book was published. 中文 《财务自由之路II》和《富爸爸穷爸爸》非常相似,都是教人摆脱贫困的书籍。不过我个人觉得这本书里有更多的实际建议,而且也会帮助读者找出适合自己的道路。

Book of the Month: June 2022
General / 1st July 2022

Nevertheless, I still think it is a good book to read to calm the mind. 中文 如果你对OKR有兴趣,《33张图秒懂OKR》将会非常适合你。作者把实行OKR时会遇到的难题以及如何解决都写在这本书内。虽然OKR不是万能的,但是多知道一种管理方式是有益无害。

Book of the Month: May 2022
General / 1st June 2022

English Everybody Writes is about publishing good content. This book contains the tips and tricks for writing.

This book gives us the knowledge to devise our own strategy. 中文 《跟美国幼儿园老师学早教》是一本育儿书。虽然我的孩子还没到书中探讨的年龄,但是早做准备总是没错的。希望我能够身体力行,利用书中的知识给我的孩子一个美好的童年。

Reflection on 2021
General / 9th January 2022

English It is already 2022 and I would like to reflect on my reading achievement in 2021. In the past year, I finished 40 reading books versus 67 books in 2020. The decline is what I have stated in Reflection on 2020 and I am happy with this result. On average, I read 3.33 books/month. So, I have exceeded my target of 2 books/month. Out of these books, only 18 are English books. Due to increasing personal commitments, I am not sure if I would be able to maintain my reading rate of 2 books per month but I would try my best to reach this target. 中文 二零二二年已经来临,我想趁此机会看看去年的成就。 我在二零二一年一共阅读了四十本书。我的目标是月读二书,所以我已经达标了。我的平均阅读速度是每月三点三三本书。 四十本书里多达二十二本是中文书籍。我在去年已经说了二零二一年可能会减少阅读量,所以我还挺满意这个数量的。基于生活中出现了越来越多需要处理的事务,今年的阅读量可能会再降低。不过我还是会尽量每月阅读至少两本书。
