"The glass is dead; living things are long volatility. The best way to verify
that you are alive is by checking if you like variations. Remember that food
would not have a taste if it weren’t for hunger; results are meaningless without
effort, joy without sadness, convictions without uncertainty, and an ethical
life isn’t so when stripped of personal risks."
Thus concludes the book "Antifragile" and it feels good to live the message.
I eat nothing in the four-hours before a meal and the most mundane dish tastes
heavenly. In turn, I crave no michelin star or any restaurant food. Almost
everyday, I have to do something sedentary, e.g., working, writing, or reading
the dictionary and something physically strenous, be it weight-lifting, trail
running, or Jiu-Jitsu. Afterwards, resting feels more restful. Antifragile
is about the contrast between the yin and the yang.
