Reading at the bookstore

This evening, I visited a bookstore since it was slightly more than an hour before my music theory class. I picked up a fairly small book titled The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick) by Seth Godin.

I had considered purchasing the book so that I could read the book thereafter, but there was a pretty long queue at the cashiers of the bookstore. As such, I started reading the book. By the time the queue was cleared, I have had finished reading the book.

It was quite an insightful read, and it did not take too much time to complete my reading of it. I learnt about concepts such as the Dip, Cul de sac (a dead-end) and the Cliff. The question that I have is how to distinguish which of the three is one going through. I don't have the answers and I am looking out for them.

Those questions are tough to decipher. Some just are answered through the simple act of living. Though at the time it may not feel so simple.

Misti: Your comments remind me of the book Who moved my cheese?.

SA: Complexity, I wonder if it is part of life?

Pinkie: I go for short holidays from time to time, just that the locations are in Singapore.
