They will help you start your day with invigorating and new perspectives.
1. How To make Work- Life Balance Work- Nigel Marsh
“If you don’t design your life, someone else will design it for you, and you may just not like their idea of balance.”
2. The power of vulnerability – Brené Brown
Do you spend so much time with your computer than with other human beings? Then maybe its time you reflected on the quality of your personal relationships. Our computer literacy has improved drastically with the rise of technology but our emotional literacy has stagnated. Brene Brown challenges you with anecdotes that inspire you to spend more time interacting with loved ones.
“We should let ourselves be seen… deeply seen… vulnerably seen. To love with our whole hearts even if there are no guarantees, …to practice gratitude and joy in those moments of terror when we are wondering, can I love you this much? Can I believe in this passionately? Can I be this fierce about this? Just to be able to stop and instead of catastrophizing what might happen, just say am so grateful because to feel this vulnerable am alive, and the last which I believe is most probably the most important is to believe that we are enough.”
3. Your elusive creative genius – Elizabeth Gilbert
Working at a start-up can be difficult. What with most people questioning you on what you would do if the idea failed. Or whether the idea is good enough. Elizabeth Gilbert discusses the impossible expectations that face people who chose to start creative ventures. She offers important advice on how to deal with the daunting pressure.
“Is it logical that anybody should be expected to be afraid of the work that they feel they were put on this Earth to do?”
