5 Stories to Read This Weekend – 15 Jan 2016

Standard
Two weeks into 2016 and I am trying to be selective of how I spend my time reading, both – offline & online. Here are a few interesting picks from the last 2 weeks.

Why I Stopped Helping People and You Should Too
We all grew up being taught how helping others was the true purpose of life. Its not entirely wrong. Random acts of kindness can change a person’s life in many instances. Cammi Pham shows how there is a flip side to this coin too.

    Seems like a good list .. I have not read these yet but plan to.

    One comment about truck drivers in India drive slow to work more hours and earn more money ..

    We at WY had contractors driving logging trucks and were paid lump sum. No wages per hour. We got mixed results with some drivers exceeding speed limits and driving unsafe … Something to watch ..

    Happy reading.
