We encounter different challenges in our day-to-day life. It is not easy to handle the pressure of multiple things all at once. In the rush of life, we often become harsh towards ourselves. And what we need to realise is that we deserve to honour our truth and live it completely.

Ichibun by Kosuke Sendo is a compilation of 49 short stories depicting the secrets of Japanese precision. With the aid of the aviation industry, the book attempts to teach readers how to make better life decisions. It claims to be an ideal read for entry-level, top-level, and mid-level management professionals.

The book essentially covers how pilots make decisions on flights and urges us to apply those lessons to our everyday lives. Divided into 3 parts, it makes use of storytelling and concrete concepts to inculcate the practice of decision-making in the readers.

The simple writing coupled with a refreshing approach of including lessons from flying planes brings novelty to the book. It delves into layers of human psychology to bring out points that would explain more about resilience engineering. The stories seem easy-peasy but do have some interesting points to make. They focus on identifying errors in daily life and suggest ways to resolve them.

I liked a few lessons from the book that struck a chord with me. The one on planning thoroughly was probably my favourite as it emphasizes the importance of giving time to what I would call ‘sharpening the axe.’ It is always a good idea to work hard on making proper strategies to execute something successfully.

I feel some people might not be very intrigued by the aviation details discussed in the book. Nonetheless, if the premise interests you, do check out this book.
