A Glimpse Into The Future By Revisiting Our Past

A Glimpse Into The Future By Revisiting Our Past

In the everyday pursuits of our dreams, goals and wants, have we stopped to take a look at what was before us, way before us? Back to the beginning of ‘time’, to see how we as humans have grown and evolved to this current state of being? History allows us to learn important lessons lest we repeat the same mistakes. It allows us, and the world to become better, so just how much of our history do we really know and understand?

It Allows Us To Understand More About The Human Species

    In Sapiens: A brief History of Humankind, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari, a renowned historian, gives a strong narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution. This is a book that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”

    See how human beings have evolved and the possibilities we hold

    Dr. Harari draws on insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology and economics, to explore how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. From the shifts in cognitive, agricultural, scientific, industrial and now to the biotechnological revolution, this book highlights real possibilities of what the future holds.

    Dr. Harari compels readers to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. Today, we are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Could this signal the end of Sapiens?

    A bold and provocative read, Sapiens challenges everything you thought you knew about yourself, your society and the world around you. The dreams, goals and wants that you have today, how is it going to impact the greater future?

    Book Summary: The Power of Habit in 2 Minutes

    Habits stick because they create craving.

    Kicking a bad habit is hard because you develop a craving for the reward at the end of the habit loop. The golden rule of changing any habit is: don’t resist craving, but redirect it. Keep the same cues and rewards, but change the routine that occurs as a result of that craving.
