Title: Everything is Out of Syllabus
Author: Varun Duggirala
We all are aware that life never comes with a manual guide or maps. Also, we are aware that life isn’t a straight road, but a messed up one with several turns and ups and downs. Life is a journey of exploration, but sometimes we really wish that we had a manual.
Everything is Out of Syllabus by Varun Duggirala is a book that helps you to make your manual as you go on living your life everyday. This book helps in finding the meaning and purpose of your life, and also tells what to do when you don’t know what to do.
Containing several anecdotes from Varun’s life, this book helps you to understand the methods and techniques that are provided in this book. This book is divided into five sections: Start, Choose, Learn, Connect and Reflect. This book teaches how to start when you are in doubt, and also how to start when you don’t know what exactly you have to start. It will help you understand what fuels your passion.
Many of us believe in luck, but sometimes we are quite lazy to keep on waiting for the luck to fall on our lap again and again. It doesn’t work like that always. Luck can always get you through the door, but it’s you who will have to make the effort to stay on the other side of the door. This book helps you to understand how to stay on the other side.
We are often told that success is not about journey, but destination. But how are we going to keep on walking if we know that the value of destination is less. In this book, the author tells what success is exactly about.
I loved how Varun has tried to explain life using simple stories from his life. We always think that the big happenings and U-turns decide our journey or next move, but from this book I realized that life is about the small things more and less about big things. Also, I appreciate how the author of this book is a great observer.
Everything Is Out of Syllabus is the book that will help a student, an intern, a corporate person, a businessman. You name it!
