Books I am reading at the moment
I love my reading. To me, it’s one of the best ways to wind down while also learning about new stuff. This year I have the goal to read at least two books a month. My favourite types of books are nonfiction (with the exception of Harry Potter, obviously), most of the personal development genre. At the moment, I am reading three books that sparked my interest. Read on if want to know whether it’s something for your reading list.
Everything is F*cked: A book about hope – Mark Manson
After Manson’s previous book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, he’s back! In his new book Everything is F*cked, Manson writes about our relationship with money, entertainment and the internet. Moreover, he elaborates on how we are living the best of times as humankind, but face psychological challenges more than ever. To me, it sounds a little bit too close to home. I am currently living my best life. If you’d told me four years ago where I’d be, doing what I do right now, I would’ve thought it could not get any better. However, I have been dealing with little mental energy dips lately. While it’s not a big deal and life is a collection of ups and downs, I hope to find some answers in Manson’s new book. And if there are no answers to be found, Manson’s humoristic writing style resonates with me either way.
How Women Rise – Sally Halgesen and Marshall Goldsmith
“Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job”. Now doesn’t that sound promising? To me it definitely does! I am a sucker for everything related to personal development. From Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In we’ve learned that women have different psychology compared to men. That definitely isn’t a bad thing, but it wouldn’t hurt to better understand how it does work for us women. In How Women Rise Halgesen and Goldsmith promise to give some insights related to female psychology. I am curious to see if there are habits that I need to break.
The Bullet Journal Method – Ryder Carroll
A little late to the game, but better late than never, right? I am not sure how that Dutch saying translates into English, but going for it anyways. I love doodling in my planner or notebook, but could use some more guidance in better doodling applications. In The Bullet Journal Method Carroll teaches some methods and systems to track your past, order your present and plan your future. Currently, I have been using the habit tracking method for a few months and I am liking it. I feel a review coming your way in the near future!
