Balance, the Alchemy of Life

One of the main ways to create content is to look at sources for additional information. To be honest, I’m an avid reader, when I start I get so immersed in the book that the entire world stands still.

Not much to Bhavika’s liking as she has to break this cocoon to get me to help with the household chores, and then every moment I get I try to get back to an incomplete book. But to have healthy content coming in, I draw inspiration not just from experience, but by standing on the shoulders of giants as well.

On that note let me introduce you to a very famous book by Paulo Coehlo ~ The Alchemist, what’s interesting is just as much as I like the story in the book, the introduction to this version talks about how he struggled with getting the book to sell and how from selling just one book in a year or two, to becoming a bestseller.
