The Art of the Good Life Review for #Careerlions

Last week, I read The Art of The Good Life by Rolf Dobelli. This book is another bestseller, from the same writer as The Art of Thinking Clearly. After hyping the book, I convinced my boyfriend to get a copy that I, of course, had to read myself as well. As he prefers to read in Dutch, so did I for a change. The Dutch book also contains a lot of artwork that makes flying through the book and checking the page numbers even more satisfying. Another fun note is that Rolf Dobelli is apparently one of the co-founders of getAbstract! I only realised this reading the book. The book is about the 52 shortcuts that increase your chances at a good life. I imagine every #careerlion is on a quest to lead a good life, so today a review of The Art of The Good Life.

Office Survival Tips Review For #Careerlions

My boyfriend went on another city trip without me last weekend and got me several gifts that were waiting for me when I arrived home Friday. While it doesn’t beat coming home to him, it was a great way to start the weekend. Especially since the gifts included cake from one of my favorite bakeries and a book that I had been eyeing up at the airport bookstore the last couple of weeks. I devoured the book in a little over a day. The book is called Werken doe je huis maar (translates to: Working you do at home) by Japke-d. Bouma. A Dutch book obviously, which to my knowledge has not been translated into other languages. Today, I will share with you a short review of the book, the main tips and tricks that it covers, and some funny quotes and insights.

How To Be Happy Review For #Careerlions

As I mentioned in my review on Notes on a Nervous Planet, I recently purchased How To Be Happy by Eva Woods.

How To Be Happy is one of the first fiction books that I have read in ages. It was on sale and the reviews were great. Also, the topics discussed are very current and near to my heart. In today’s blog, I will provide you with my review of the book as well as some incredible insights and my take on the devastating topics in the book.

SNAP! Review for #Careerlions

As I have mentioned a few times in previous blogs as well, I am discovering more and more topics related to management skills. Skills that will help you establish the best work environment for yourself and those around you, perform at your best and stimulates good collaboration with others. It may also function as input for conflict management. In my blog on What is Your Personality?, I describe how we can define personality and how it is the basis of your behavior.

It was long believed that our personalities were set during the early stages of our childhood and remain consistent through the course of your life. Recent studies have now contradicted this belief, indicating that we can change our personalities through therapy and/or by means of our own efforts. Today, my blog is about the book SNAP!: Change Your Personality in 30 Days by Dr. Gary Small. He is a New York Times bestselling author, head of the UCLA Longevity Center, and an expert in neuroscience and human behavior. The book taps into the key components of personality development and tools and techniques to make the most of your personality traits, based on recent findings that we can change our personalities after all.
