I have been reading The Smartest Kids in the World by Amanda Ripley.  Just have to share a paragraph from the book here.

“Math is a language of logic.  It is a disciplined, organized way of thinking.  There is a right answer; there are rules that must be followed.  More than any other subject, math is rigor distilled.  Mastering the language of logic helps to embed higher-order habits in kids’ minds: the ability to reason, for example, to detect patterns and to make informed guesses.  Those kinds of skills had rising value in a world in which information was cheap and messy.”

Well said!

February Summary

February went by very quickly.  It felt like it was faster than January.  Chinese New Year.  Mt. Washington trip.  Family house drama.  It was just a busy month.

Here is February’s stats:

  • Reading: 20/29
  • Writing: 8/29
  • Exercising: 24/29
  • Meditating: 5/29

I really fell off the Meditation bandwagon in February.  I think it largely has to do with me being tired every night.  I remember at the end of most nights all I wanted to do was just to lay down and close my eyes.  Anyhow, no excuses!  I hope to pick it up in March.

I didn’t write much last month.  I admit that I was trying harder in January to write.  I think writing often is a good habit to have, so I hope to write more this month.

Since finishing Think and Grow Rich, I’ve picked up The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.  It was recommended by my colleague, David Crow.  The book is very easy to read, so I didn’t have any problem reading in February.

Exercising was fun this month.  Brian and I really made some progress in the gym.  I worked out every day when I was at work last month, and it felt great.  Exercising keeps me sane.
