It’s time to rethink what you think


You know you’re doing some #bigthinking when your bedside table looks like this.

.

I’ve read over half of these and so far am finding them fascinating. If you’re into the #meaningmovement or the #connectioneconomy or the #growthmindset, then these books will be right up your street.

.

Or, if you know someone who might be interested, why not gift them a book for Christmas? After all, what better gift is there than knowledge? (Well, yes, a Porsche *would* be better, but not in the same price bracket!)

.

So in no particular order of ones I’ve read:

.

1. Things are what you make of them, by Adam J Kurtz. Great for artists.

.

2. The Dip, by Seth Godin. Great for any small business.

.

3. Man’s search for meaning, by Viktor E. Frankl. Great for anyone interested in how mindset can affect your view on life.

.

4. This Is Marketing, by Seth Godin. Great for artists and small businesses.

.

5. The war of art, by Steven Pressfield. Great for artists and anyone who struggles with creative blocks.

.

6. Flow, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Great for artists and anyone who wants to master a skill or find fulfillment.

.

7. Linchpin, by Seth Godin. Super book on how make the most of your work.

.

8. The Icarus Deception, by Seth Godin. My personal favourite - this is a must if you want to make an impact with the work you do.

.

And ones I’ve yet to read, but have had others recommend them:


Jeopardy, by Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones.


Daring Greatly, by Brené Brown.


The Book of Beautiful Questions, by Warren Berger.


Growth Hacker Marketing, by Ryan Holiday.


Platform, by Michael Hyatt.


Jab, jab, jab, right hook, by Gary Vaynerchuk.

.

Do you have any favourites not on this list? What movement are you aligning yourself to at the moment (if any??)

What your painting style reveals about your personality

I was chatting with a friend today about painting, and why she loved painting loosely and why I enjoyed a tighter polished picture. My first instinct is to agree that a looser application of paint is
