3 Timeless Rules For Decision Making by Peter Bregman

It’s easy to get bogged down by the mass of incoming decisions each day from the mundane (what to eat for lunch) to the macro (what should I do with my life?). Peter Bregman, coach to executives for over 30 years, helps us make this easier with 3 timeless rules.

We Live In A One Track World But Anyone Can Become A Polymath by Robert Twigger

Many have butchered the quote, “Jack of all trades, master of none,” when in fact the full quote reads, “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one,” intended to be a compliment for generalists, versatile and adept at many things. As the author writes,” To come up with such ideas, you need to know things outside your field. What’s more, the further afield your knowledge extends, the greater potential you have for innovation.” For those “bouncing” around different fields, take refuge owning being a multidisciplinary learner.

Meet Yourself: A User's Guide To Building Self-Esteem by Niko Everett

Time and time again when we ask people who is their biggest critic, they answer themselves. We find it easy to notice our shortcomings, but how often do you take time to notice what you love about yourself? What you’re proud of? What you like about you?

We’ve been a huge fan of Amber Rae, author of Choose Wonder Over Worry, for her insights into living a more joyous, heart-centered life. Here Amber shares a simple, but extremely helpful labeling system for our to-do lists:

Optimize for energy. When I complete something on my to-do list, I note E (energizing), N (neutral), and D (draining) next to each item. If it’s energizing, I note to do more of it. If it’s neutral, I see if I can delete or delegate. And if draining, I get curious about why it was draining, and see if I can correct or delegate in the future. Life-changing, I tell you.
