Publisher's Summary

The world today has evolved to become a fast-paced whirlpool of conflicting thoughts, hopes, vanity, expectations, failure, and success into which the human race has been embroiled. The average man is constantly on different pursuits simultaneously, but unfortunately, most of them are not even worthy of his attentions, and sadly enough, he doesn’t know. Born free with a clean slate, he is brought up from childhood to chase after everything within reach, to take every action he can take, to blur the difference between needs and wants, and to diversify his efforts.
Society does not teach him that he has a choice to choose whether to do, or not to do. He does not know that he can conserve energy and concentrate his efforts on a select few number of pursuits for a greater chance of success. He is running hard, but he is not being chased.

Old School

The author made some good points, but frame the concept like person who wish we could freeze life and not progress. Well read.

Key points

Focus on what matters.

If you don’t plan, someone will plan for you.

Now save yourself the read.
