A few books I’m enjoying
Thinking a lot about values and value-based motivation these days.
Probably a book I should have read a long time ago, Flow: http://www.amazon.com/Flow-The-Psychology-Optimal-Experience/dp/0061339202 argues, essentially, that happiness is a state of mind. If you haven’t read Flow, you should. I regret not starting this classic earlier.
A little self-helpy … but sometimes nice to have a book tell you what you already know about yourself: http://www.amazon.com/The-Power-Full-Engagement-Performance/dp/0743226755. A simple premise — you grow capacity through stress-then-recovery and this holds true for physical, emotional, spiritual and mental capabilities.
