It's hard to get converted being one, but i'm trying my best to stick to the diet. My worry is, i could get leaner by this: fruits, rice, occasional seafood diet, water, no meat.

I'm going there, and i can do it. Consistency must be observed at all times.

+ gym (at least 3 times a week)

Steve Jobs Biography I part 1

I started reading Steve Job's biography authored by Walterson Isaac. Honestly, i can't get enough out of it. I would opine that it's  not a page turner because the flow of events conveyed sets the tone of the reader to cherish and lavishly devour each scene, each moment, each chunk of story that transpired in the life of Apple's father - Steve Jobs.

As i read through the book, i'm going to post interesting facts that'll serve as an outline and summary for the purpose of memory retention. Yes, i often argue to myself that one way to put an imprint on a specific thread of information thru my head is to translate it further in to other outlets of replication - such as writing, or speaking, or recording, and at a later time, review those output to fully create a dent in to the memory lobes of the brain.

- It's a shock to reveal that Steve was abandoned by his biological parents since birth. He was then adopted by Paul Jobs and his wife.

- Steve started practicing being a fruitarian and a vegetarian on his late teen age

- He got to India for his enlightenment journey while he was in college. He was into ZEN habits and was serious about it.

- He's a college drop out from Reed's University

- During his early stint with Steve Wozniak, in building the Apple Inc., Jobs seldom take a bath, he believes that being a fruitarian/vegetarian would not make him emit unnecessary mucous, giving him B.O.

- He has been a manipulative person in the right sense of things for him to advance for the greater good of things he want to accomplish

- At an early age, he has been practicing "Reality Distortion" (more on this as i read thru the book) which was taught by Friedland (his Zen Mentor)

- His father instilled to him the value of putting care to craftsmanship not only the outward physical appearance of things but most of all the unseen parts of a piece of work, thus, will lead to perfectionism

- Steve's father is a a mechanic

- Steve has been fascinated with electronics eversince

- he played Kriegspiel in college, a game of chess where the two players sit back to back to each other with their own chessboard and a moderator to umpire the moves of each opponent.

- He was badge# 2 in Apple Inc, while Wozniak was #1, this was done in purpose to tame Job's uneduring ego

- Steve cried when he fought to make sure that his decision for 1 year warranty on Apple II (their 2nd Apple computer) is not being over ruled.

- There were two choices for the apple logo before it got official, (1) Full Apple Outline  (2) Full Apple Outline with a bite
Steve chose the 2nd because the 1st was tantamount to a cherry.

- He has been skinny eversince due to his persistence on his fruit diets

- He was once perceived as an orange man because he can eat just carrots downing it with a lot of h20

If you get the chance to buy and read this book, i highly recommend it although i'm only at Chapter 7. The author Walterson is the maker of the biogprahy of Benjamin Franklin and Henry Kissinger, not to mention Albert Einstein.

Now, suddenly, i got this spark of enthusiasm to devours biographies... till next time
