“A man who conquers himself is ready to take on on the world”

Unfortunately I cannot spend all my time in the gym, and endlessly scrolling through Instagram doesn’t do much for my brain, or my eyes. So I picked up The book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi.

I’ve only just started the book, but basically it’s Musashi’s ideas about life and strategy. A manual of technique and philosophy. I really like his idea of how he improved his swordsmanship technique by “investigating this thoroughly” through practice rather than trying to learn them by merely reading. So far I would highly recommend this for someone trying to cultivate the mindset of mastery in any form. Also I love a good cheap book too.

I got it from Amazon here

If you have a cool book you’re loving, I’d like to hear about it in the comments.
