James Reads: Screw it, Let’s do it!

I’m not a keen reader to tell the truth, but a friend of mine encouraged me to read this book and he took the liberty to borrow me the book that he had borrowed from his friend.

Within the first chapter, the book has already caught my attention. Richard Branson has always been mold to be bold ever since he could start to walk. His drive to break World-records and the feats that he has achieved so far is because of how his family brought him up. His mother would ask him to race across the field with grass taller than himself while the parents drove all the way back. How many Asian family would allow such things to their kids? Most Asian families are too over protective with their children. Even the slightest fall or knocking on something would send their mothers screaming from the other end of the room.

Most Asian family over protect their kids. They don’t want them to grow up, they want to keep them safe in a bubble. And often times this only leads to destruction. They are too timid to try anything or do anything. They expect to be spoon fed their whole entire life.

Base on the title of Richard Branson’s book. Let me challenge you to “Screw it, Let’s do it!” to everything you face in life!
