Good Read: Why you should stop asking, ‘What’s the takeaway’?

Here is an interesting article I read in the Mint newspaper.

Why you should stop asking “What’s the takeaway?”

The author argues that the assumption that the substance of a book, or a lecture, or a film is in its synopsis is one of the most foolish assumptions of our age.

It is an interesting argument. I often feel that I make this mistake of late. I look for “meaning”, “learning”, “enlightenment”, “life enriching experience” etc in everything.

Is it really needed? Always? Should there be a takeaway in everything? Should there be a purpose…always?

Worth thinking…and practising.
