On Kathy’s Bookshelf
I’m a big reader. Mostly I read non-fiction, from science to business, psychology to memoir, I always have a pile of books nearby. Books have truly enriched my life and have shaped my thinking and my behavior. My reading experience has taught me that the right book typically comes along at the exact moment I need it.
I don’t know what crossroads you’re at right now, but I hope you find something that piques your curiosity and enhances your life on this list of my favorites. The latest and greatest (what I’ve read recently that had great impact on me):
Essentialism – Greg McKeown
This book woke me up. It mirrored so many of my own actions and beliefs, I was sometimes stunned to see them in print. McKeown clearly provides a series of disciplines to eliminate the unnecessary and extraneous, allowing us to focus on what is truly essential. If you are like me, one read and you will be energized and ready to strip down your to-do list. When you put these methods into practice, you’ll be operating from your best and highest use of your time. Check out Greg’s blog too.
