Chop Wood Carry Water: How to Fall in Love with the Process of Becoming Great by Joshua Medcalf

I have read the following book during the last week and I am absolutely fascinated by it.
Chop Wood Carry Water: How to Fall in Love with the Process of Becoming Great by Joshua Medcalf

As I stated in my recent Journal-post I'm trying to use this principle and way to live in order to focus more on the journey to FIRE/ERE rather on the destination/goal itself.

I can recommend this book to everyone who thinks is obsessed with the FI/RE-goal and doesn't enjoy the journey much.

The book tells a story about a man who wants to be a Samurai Archer. While he learns archery, he chops wood and carry water every single day. His sensai tells him great wisdom. The story therefore is more philosophical, but very practical. It is not about FIRE or ERE, but it is more about the process-orientied method becoming a master in a specific field.
