Good morning and Happy Star Trek Day!

In 1979 James T. Kirk (William Shtner), the captain of the Starship Enterprise, explored the whole galaxy with his crew and goes on several adventures as they fight evil forces together.

Here are a couple of cool facts on Star Trek (I loved it when I was young):

1) The Vulcan salute is actually a Hebrew blessing – it was borrowed from something Leonard Nimoy had witnessed as a child in a service at an Orthodox Jewish synagogue.

2) The command chair and platform was sold for an impressive $304,750 in 2002 (check out the 10 of the Most Expensive ‘Star Trek’ Items Ever Auctioned)

Have a great day!

I read many great books recommendations over the years but almost never I have encountered with recommendation on Eliyahu M. Goldratt, an Israeli business management guru who came with the concept of the “Theory of Constraints” (TOC) which is a part of the curriculum in the leading business schools & universities across the globes and used by entrepreneurs.

His books are probably the most enjoyable books I’ve read and actually, over the years I read them again and again (actually read The Goal book 7 times) and every time I read it, I was able to take something new to implement in my global businesses.

Although they are business books, they are written as ‘business novel’ allowing you to understand the information easily.

What makes them most fascinating for me is that in all of these amazing books, answers are not handed to you. You, the reader, along with the characters in the book, works through the process together to discover solutions.
