Read More... Every day, our life is filled with overwhelming thoughts, ideas, tasks, commitments, responsibilities, and complexities, yet we always find ourselves yearning for more. We always expect to go beyond what we have done to go up to the next level.
In the world where we are living right now - given the opportunity - everyone is a workaholic by nature, either physically, mentally or emotionally. Everyone is busy doing anything they could put their hands into. Either they are a force to do it out of responsibility or by choice. When one is not busy doing something that their hands can’t do, they’re busy doing something else with their minds and their emotions. All these lead to a complex life, a life full of stress which deprived us of the inner happiness we are constantly in pursuit of.
The first part of the book, “A Simple & Abundant Life Through Essentialism: Simplify Your Life, Manage Your Day, Be Productive, Work Less, Accomplish More, Maximize Your Creativity”, aims to instill in you a mindset that believes the complete opposite of what we have right now. Through this book, we need to take a radical shift to adopting a mentality of doing only what needs to be done – a mentality that embraces simplicity in contrast to life’s complexities and tread towards the path of essentialism.

And in the third and final part, we will look at what is abundance and how you can lead a satidfying life filled with prosperity. You will understand how you are creating your own life circumstances. Plus, you will find practical ways on how attract more abundance into your life.

Young, searching, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed fifty dollars from his father and launched a company with one simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost running shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed eight thousand dollars that first year, 1963. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In this age of start-ups, Knight’s Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is more than a logo. A symbol of grace and greatness, it’s one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world.
But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always been a mystery. Now, in a memoir that’s surprising, humble, unfiltered, funny, and beautifully crafted, he tells his story at last. It all begins with a classic crossroads moment. Twenty-four years old, backpacking through Asia and Europe and Africa, wrestling with life’s Great Questions, Knight decides the unconventional path is the only one for him. Rather than work for a big corporation, he will create something all his own, something new, dynamic, different. Knight details the many terrifying risks he encountered along the way, the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors, the countless doubters and haters and hostile bankers—as well as his many thrilling triumphs and narrow escapes. Above all, he recalls the foundational relationships that formed the heart and soul of Nike, with his former track coach, the irascible and charismatic Bill Bowerman, and with his first employees, a ragtag group of misfits and savants who quickly became a band of swoosh-crazed brothers.
Together, harnessing the electrifying power of a bold vision and a shared belief in the redemptive, transformative power of sports, they created a brand, and a culture, that changed everything.
