What I read this month : November Edition

what i read in november

Here I am again with my book list for the month! I hope you’ve enjoyed last month’s installment? Inspired by Gretchen Rubin, I plan to make these posts a regular thing on the blog. Here’s goes my list for November! 1. When Breath Becomes Air Air by Paul Kalanithi This is a memoir I’ve heard so much about that I decided to pick it up on a whim. I listened to the audiobook which was really great. The author describes his experience as a neurosurgeon dealing with terminal cancer. His writing is literally haunting. Unfortunatly, he hasn’t been able to conclude his memoir, the illness progressing too fast. His wife completed the memoir, writing about his last moments and his legacy. A beautiful piece of littĂ©rature. 2. Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking by Samin Nosrat Unconventional read for a productivity blog, but I throroughly enjoyed this cookbook. Informing us about the science behind the elements of good cooking, Samin is not only informative, but also very funny. This book goes in depth and is beautifully […]

The Free-Time Formula : How to carve out time for what matters most

The Free-Time Formula by Jeff Sanders

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve heard me say that Jeff Sanders is one of my favorite podcasters. But Jeff is not only a successful podcaster, he’s also an author! When I heard that he was coming up with his second book, The Free-Time Formula, I was eager to know what it was about. Jeff was kind enough to provide me with an advanced copy and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! Last year, Jeff published his second book, his first paperback ever published by a real publisher. It was titled The 5 A.M. Miracle and was basically a compilation of productivity advice. I did not care too much for the book at the time and gave it somewhat of a bad review. I felt that the writing needed improvement and that the advice was general and, frankly, didn’t bring anything new to the already crowded productivity table. Well this time, my friends, things are different. The Free-Time Formula is all original content. Jeff came up with his own framework, 7 steps to […]

Your best year ever, at your fingertips : Review

Your Best Year Ever by Michael Hyatt

Over the years, there is one influencer I look up to most than others. Ex-CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing, Michael Hyatt has grown quite a readership in the productivity and leadership sphere. His blog is ranked by Google in the top one-half percent of all blogs, scoring more than a million page views each month. His podcasts and books always have a place of choice in my media consumption each month. Passionate as I am with all things goal setting, I was eager to get my copy of Hyatt’s latest book, Your Best Year Ever: A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goals, released this January 2nd. I read the whole thing in records time and also enrolled in the companion online course, 5 days to your best year ever. Unfortunately, this time, Michael Hyatt’s content disappointed. The course and book are divided in 5 parts, 5 steps to set and achieve your goals for the new year, or at any time really. Each step is actionable and specific steps are laid out at the end of every chapter […]
