Yesterday I read the book, “Advice for a Young Investigator”. The author said that the progress of studying science takes three steps. observations, hypotheses and experiments. First, we need to observe our target such as stars, animals, people, etc. Then, we provide our hypotheses about why some facts happen and how our targets move. Last but not least, we conduct experiments to prove or disprove our hypotheses. No matter what kinds of sciences we study in, the progress is similar.

One of my younger friends had read the book Into the Wild and he seemed to like this book very much, so I went to the library and borrow it. There was a story about why this book was published. At first, there was small news about an anonymous young man who died in Alaska, and then his friends identified who he is. The young man, Christopher McCandless, is well-educated, smart and strong in sports. Nobody knows why he went to the wildness in Alaska and finally died there. Therefore, Jon Krakauer, the editor of Outside Magazine, wrote a report on this. Many readers wrote mails to Jon after they read this report. Some of them gave positive comments such as brave man to the young man, while some of them gave negative ones such as reckless and arrogant boy. On the other hand, some of the young man’s friends shared what they knew about Christopher and they wanted to know why Christopher died there because they thought that Christopher was strong enough to live everywhere and he definitely didn’t go to their suicide. This brought Jon an idea to dig out what happened to Christopher.

Recently there is too many things to do, and I found that I was lack of the power to execute all things soon. Therefore, I go to the library to borrow the book “Execution”. I think it may tell me how to execute well. For example, how can I live with more energy, or tell me a story that makes me have new positive thoughts. In fact, I was wrong; it is a book about management.
