[21/52] The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

[21/52] The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

I could not resist reading yet another children book of Dr Seuss. I am glad I picked up The Lorax.

The Lorax has a profound message told in simplest form. Rapid consumption of natural resources to bring products to market faster is a wide spread today. Most often today, Marketing drives a demand and hence production. It’s not a big surprise we end up buying stuff we don’t need.

The cutting down of Truffula trees made me realise, how costly organic vegetable and fruits have become. The commercially grown or “manufactured” vegetables and fruits are much cheaper!

If every child read this book multiple times during their childhood in India at least, I am sure many would have grown to handle large scale problems such as shown in this book.

[Book 12/52]Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr.Seuss – Review

I found this book in the background of a Garyvee daily video. I immediately ordered it from Amazon.  I do not regret the decision of buying this book. Although a children’s book grown ups can also be inspired by this book.

Dr.Seuss talks about the challenges you will face in life and what you should do. Life may not always be a smooth ride. Like many wait for something to happen when they face a challenge, you should not be the same. Rather you should pick yourself up and go places. Once you are out of a challenge, you may face many others.

What should you do?

Pick yourself again and again for each of the challenges that slow you down.
