Smarter Faster Better

Smarter Faster Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business
by Charles Duhigg

From the Book Description
In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Charles Duhigg explained why we do what we do. In Smarter Faster Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity, deep reporting, and rich storytelling to explain how we can get better at the things we do. It’s a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity, one that can help anyone learn to succeed with less stress and struggle, and to get more done without sacrificing what we care about most—to become smarter, faster, and better at everything we do.

Everything you need you have

Everything You Need You Have: How to Be at Home in Your Self
by Gerad Kite

From the Book Description
The secret to feeling at home in yourself isn’t therapy, meditation, silencing your phone, throwing out your possessions or traveling the world. The answer is already inside you.

Gerad Kite was a therapist for years before realizing all the talk and analysis weren’t making a lasting difference in the lives of his patients. So he quit his practice and looked for a new way to help people feel better. What he discovered is a different approach to finding a secret, peaceful, and permanent place inside yourself that you can access at all times, a path to getting out of your head, to surrender to what is. You’ll see that you already have what you need to be happy and well.

Gifts of acceptance

The Gifts of Acceptance: Embracing People And Things as They Are
by Daniel A. Miller

From the Book Description
What would your life be like if you accepted people and things as they are? Do you wish you had the “perfect” mate, an understanding boss, obedient children, relatives who never fight, and friends who always agree with you? No one gets to sail through life free of turbulence. What separates people who shake it off, bounce back, and stay positive from the bitter, never satisfied, and defeated? Daniel A. Miller convincingly attests that the answer is choosing acceptance. In this book he offers tools, insights, and strategies for practicing acceptance, coupled with inspiring true stories.
