I think everyone should read this book, no matter how old they are or how they live their life, as there is so much valuable information throughout the book.
I can't explain my view on this book in just one sentence, so if you're interested, check out my blog where I sum up my interpretation of Peterson's ideology about Life.
“Order is not enough. You can’t just be stable, and secure, and unchanging, because there are still vital and important new things to be learned.
Nonetheless, chaos can be too much... Thus, you need to place one foot in what you have mastered and understood and the other in what you are currently exploring and mastering.
Then you have positioned yourself where the terror of existence is under control and you are secure, but where you are also alert and engaged.
That is where there is something new to master and some way that you can be improved.
That is where meaning is to be found.”
– Jordan Peterson
Stand up straight with your shoulders back
Put yourself first
Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today
Pursue what is meaningful
Tell the truth, or atleast don't lie.
