Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Hope the pandemic is not dampening the festive season.

I’m trying to make it a personal goal to read more books this year as I believe it can positively affect the way I think about things. Hopefully, it will help me in my everyday life eg in work, relationships, career, family etc.

I’m currently reading a book titled Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari. It’s a lengthy (466 pages) but super interesting book recommended by my Professor back in 2016 and also an ex-colleague who recommended me the book What It Takes.

This book, Sapiens, talks in-depth about history, survival, money and will change your perception of a lot of things. It tells you that a lot of the issues that we are facing or seeing currently, already existed in the past. It reveals a lot of dark truths about societies, to a certain extent it may be uncomfortable to read.

So here are my takeaways from the book so far.
