Three Things For You

Here are three things I've found recently that I thought you might enjoy:

1) Derek Sivers shared a great life manifesto on his blog. I especially enjoyed his line, “The best plan is the one that lets you change your plans.” Sounds familiar, no?

2) I'm currently reading The Time Paradox by Philip Zimbardo and John Boyd. They tackle our perspective on time, how it influences our lives, and how we're virtually unaware of it.

This book is an investment guide for your future. Time matters, no matter who you are, where you live, how old you are, or what you do. Whether you drink alone or are a leader of nations, time matters. Whether you are a single mom, an executive, a teacher, student, or prisoner, time matters. Whether you are a laid-back hedonist or a vigorously aspiring Type A workaholic, time matters. Your time is precious. You pass through this life only once, so it is vital that you make the most of the journey.

Any book that helps you understand your perspective on time in order to get the most out of your life sounds like a worthy investment to me.

3) Coursera offers free educational courses online and has a 6-week course starting up on May 9th called “A Life of Happiness & Fulfillment”.

The course is led by Professor Raj Raghunathan, who just released his appropriately named book, “If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?” If you decide to give the book a read or the course a shot, let me know. I'm signed up for the course and looking forward to diving into both the course and the book.

If you want to have a conversation about your life, time, happiness or anything else related to your overall lifestyle, feel free to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you.
