I have a small library and I am a reader and writer, and I blogged at alhaj.blog for more than a decade. It was first a blog on Malaysian politics and this one year feeling old I started to think more of our Maker. The blog is about Islamic Theology.
I read among others Robert T. Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad (an eye opener to me of what is meant by financial freedom and that prompted me to get involved in, after so many years, afiliate maketing ), Tony Robbins‘ Unshakeable on perseverance, William A. Cohen’s Peter Drucker’s Way To The Top insights to achieve success in one’s station in life and management and finally Donald T. Phillips’ Lincoln On Leadership (which showed Lincoln political acumen in uniting his country men divided between the love of slavery and the equality of all men. You can buy any of these books on Amazon.com by clicking any of the linked-texts or images.
Pic is of the Guru Peter Drucker. Peter Drucker’s quote quoted by Cohen: “The most crucial and vital resource you have as an executive and as a manager is yourself” is indeed an inspiration. From Ayn Rand, “Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as a driver.”
Another book is that of a Russian leader Peter The Great: Autocrat And Reformer who brought his country to progress and unity. Peter The Great is a model leader of my country Malaysia 7th Prime Minister and his second time as it’s Prime Minister who is no one else other than the mild outspoken Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and here is the excerpt of his interview on his role models:
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is a prolific writer and has two books on his account: A Doctor In The House the results of his writings in his column chedet.cc, despite his heavy time as Prime Minister, and The Malay Dilemma a controversial book that labelled him as ultra Malay for alarming the Malays why they are backward in their own country.
Kinda believe that Mahathir didn’t eat fish, no exercise, going 94 and took Berocca as supplement for maintaining physical fitness and mental sharpness.
