I was looking for some answers for my personal growth and was fortunate to have grabbed this self help book from the library. As the title suggests the core wisdom here is to spend one minute of each day to reveal our true potential for success in life and social well-being. And the ways to go about it is explained through a conversation between two people. I am incapable to give justice in a few words and easy to critique any works, but we are talking about books that are stand apart and makes an impact in some way. This one scores a ton in my honest views for its many positive thoughts, quotes and ideas that is simple to work on. This quote “Within each of us is a part of us that knows what is best for us” and “Now I spend less time trying to be loved by others and more time loving others” stole my heart. I want to end this review with this closing quote “Peace begins with me” and “The answer lies within me”. Spectacular and astounding work by the author.

I picked this book for its size more than the content and tried to focus on the statement by the author, then I thought may be its not bad after all from the simple explanations of self analysis and easy doable exercises at the end of each chapter which proves to be worth the time. I dislike self help books that talk about complex issues with pretentious suggestions when it’s execution is a Herculean task and boring. But the author has made sure to include achievable goals through its approachable tasks. So happy to have chosen this book and kept me well informed till the end. That’s all it matters.

I learned how the mental illness is berated and still find its issues are deafened. It saddens me to resemble the fate of many silent sufferers and baffles that only when something pertinent is surfaced the focus fades away in the burning problems on hand. Modern psychology gains awareness from the predecessor’s psychological issues of that era and shows the importance of analyzing, then traumas, agony, solitary confinement faced by the world war survivors. This tells us that mental diseases do not cause by chemical imbalances alone since there is no legitimacy claims to prove it. I love this thought seeding point “”Wellness” is too often a thin sugarcoating applied to the bitter pill that late capitalism has prescribed us”. I had a memorable read of this book and request all to check the nuggets of wisdom in here.

No one is stupid, no one is clever (all perceptions are incomplete)!!!

“In a train, two children were running here and there. Sometimes they would fight with each other, and at times they would jump on top of seats.

The father, sitting nearby, was lost in his thoughts.

In between, when the children looked at him, he would put on an affectionate smile, and then the children would again get busy with their mischief and the father would keep looking at them lovingly.

The co-travelers of the train were upset by the children’s playfulness and annoyed by the father’s attitude. Since it was night time, everyone wanted to rest.

Seeing the running around of the children, a traveler could not stop himself and exclaimed to the father – “What kind of father are you? The children are behaving so naughtily, and instead of stopping them you are encouraging them with your smiles. Is it not your duty to explain to them?”

The father paused for a few moments and said, “I am just thinking how to explain it to them brother.” The man said, “my wife had gone to her maternal home. She passed away yesterday due to an accident. I am taking the children there for the final rites, and now I’m confused how to explain to them that now they will never see their mother again.”

Hearing this, everyone was stunned. Let alone saying something, nobody was even able to think straight.

The children were still engaged in their mischief. They were still running around in the compartment. There was no change in the atmosphere, but those children were no longer looking like undisciplined kids to the co-passengers but were looking like soft young flowers, on which everyone wanted to pour their love.

The father was no longer a careless person, but now he was seen as the father and the mother of two children, saddened by the separation of his life partner.

The change in feeling/perception/thinking leads to change in behavior.

We keep labeling people as bad/good, stupid/clever, decent/indecent without actually knowing what they are going through or the reason behind a particular behavior.

It’s okay to have an opinion and yet never give an ultimate opinion.

Every morning in Frankfurt, Germany, you might catch a glimpse of Jenny, a horse who goes on a long walk every morning, all by herself. She has been taking the same route every morning for 14 years, ever since her owner, now 79 years old, became unable to ride. She enjoys greeting all of the familiar faces along the way, and she stops and gets treats and pettings from some of her favorite humans. The locals treat her like a celebrity and happily clean up after her. A piece of paper is attached to her halter that reads, “My name is Jenny. I didn’t run away, I’m just walking. Thank you.” But the police get calls frequently from people who don’t know about the arrangement. They are very familiar with the horse and the owner, and there have been no incidents in 14 years.

The life of geriatrics is expressed with witty humor and inspires many down the road through the story of Hendrik who happens to be 83 1/4 years old. He resides in a retirement home and his affinity with the small group of mates is worth the read. Although he was a loner at start slowly transforms into soulful and his helping hands is filled with touche moments. Especially the name of their club ‘old but not dead’ evokes a necessary change of mood at the emotionally drained places. I find Evert character extremely jovial to be with including the Hendrick’s lively traits. While aging, knowing the limitations yet living the moment shows, how to perceive life with just a leap of faith in the existence and sustenance. This club has stolen my heart and took me to nostalgic moments with my grandparents. I will deeply miss the adventure trips of Hendrick on the mobility scooter.

This book is a travelogue of an old man journeying on a bicycle from New Hampshire to San Francisco. After Haruki Murakami’s “What I talk about when I talk about running”, I admire this author’s courage to define the perks and odds of succeeding in his pursuits. Having perseverance and determined mindset was showered throughout which is the driving force to his outpourings. It brought a new perspective on being pointless to judge the potentiality of the amassed old populace. When a normal cyclist battles its limitations than, imagine the valiant effort that the author has embarked. I can proudly say that I have traveled along with the author and will throw the names of the places as described in this book while am with travelers to have a complying talk.
