7 little adjustments that’ll make a big difference to how your life and business flows

Books to Find Your Flow

I’m a big fan of reading – I love what it does to my brain. I have several bookcases and literally hundreds (maybe even thousands) of books, layered two and three deep on the shelves.

I plucked 7 books from my bookshelf – I was going to call them my favourites, but how can I say that when there are so many more!

These 7 mind-expanding books will help you think differently, do things differently – and get different
(and better) results!

  1. Ship it – Seth Godin (Free download).
    Seth says don’t wait for things to be perfect, just get it out there – you can make adjustments through feedback.
  2. The obstacle is the way – Ryan Holiday
    That 6 foot wall in front of you could be the best thing that ever happened to you. Look at and reframe obstacles differently – and the bonus is, you’ll be a lot happier.
  3. First things first – Stephen Covey
    Work out what’s important to you and do those things, not the millions of other distracting, misleading little tasks that take you nowhere.
  4. The Dip – Seth Godin (Free download)
    Sometimes you’re in a dip and sometimes you’re in a cul-de- sac. It helps to know the difference before you proceed.
  5. The Art of Non-conformity – Chris Guillebeau
    Set your own rules – this is YOUR life, it’s made to be enjoyed.
  6. The Present – Spencer Johnson (video preview)
    Remove the things that keep you focused on the future or locked in the past. The ONLY place you can take action in is the present.
  7. 18 Minutes to Find Your Focus, Master Distraction & Get the Right Things Done – Peter Bregman
    This book is a misnomer – it looks like a left brain book but I would call it more of a creative life-hack book. It will change your perspective for the better.
  8. A BONUS BOOK: Oh the Places You’ll Go – Dr Seuss. (free video on YouTube)
    I had to put this one in because every so often we need reminding of how wonderful we are and not to take things too seriously.

I believe you will find within the pages of a book what you are looking for. With that in mind, before you open a book ask yourself “What will I find in this book to help me with… “X” (Finding my Flow, in this circumstance.)

Your brain is able to do remarkable things – it will help you find what you are looking for. It’s what your Reticular Activating System is constantly doing – looking for the thing you asked for.
