Think Again By Adam Grant

I genuinely enjoy being right! Also, in stupid situations like when arguing with my husband if our sofa is 4 or 4,5 years old or when discussing the exact rules of monopoly with my son. I mean, really, who cares?!?! And is it REALLY worth arguing over? The OBVIOUS answer is NO, but the fact is that I truly have to pull myself together and decide to LET these things go!

This week I got a good reminder from Adam Grant on why this is something I MUST keep working on! See, Adam wrote a mindboggling and thought-provoking book called ‘Think Again’ where he offers this simple advice: Keep an open mind. Think and act like a scientist. And remember to revise your opinions when the evidence demands it. In a nutshell, he calls this ‘Rethinking’.

Rethinking helps us stay relevant in a world that knows no stability and reminds us that ‘Staying put’ is no longer an option. We must become willing to evaluate our beliefs, question our convictions, and embrace new information. We must Re-think!

We hope you will enjoy our animated summary of the book; you can watch it here:

Loved. By Vivienne Ladommatou & Shaun Young

Love changes everything! It’s a force, of nature that is more powerful and more capable than any other of changing the world! This week I read a beautiful book by Vivienne Ladommatou and Shaun Young and their lovely book, ‘Loved’. The book has the subtitle ‘How to coach yourself to well-being through self-love’ and is, in its essence, a guide to Get well, be well and do well!

Packed with forthright reflections and actionable exercises, the book provides us with a framework for:

  • Hearing ourselves think,
  • comprehending our feelings
  • and understanding the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviour.

A fundamental point in the book is that if we want to see a happier and healthier world for ourselves and our children, we must consciously commit to optimizing our well-being and persistently grow to realize our full potential. We must change our minds!

How To Stop Feeling Like Sh*t By Andrea Owen

If you – like me – are continuously exploring the path of self-improvement, I recommend reading ‘How to stop feeling like sh*t by Andrea Owen. In the book, she emphasizes that self-improvement starts with self-awareness and the ability to transform your habits.

Therefore, she walks the reader through 14 self-destructive habits we need to break to snap out of autopilot, feel empowered, and live more fulfilling lives. Written in inclusive and straight-to-the-point language, the book mainly targets a female audience. However, I would argue that everyone can benefit from her sound advice, irrespective of gender, race, or religion!

The 14 self-destructive habits are as follows:

  1. Your Inner Critic
  2. Isolation and Hiding
  3. Numbing
  4. Comparison
  5. Self-Sabotage
  6. Imposter Syndrome
  7. People Pleasing
  8. Perfectionism
  9. Being “strong”
  10. Control
  11. Catastrophizing
  12. Blame
  13. Cynicism
  14. Overachieving

We hope you will enjoy this video, where we will walk you through the highlights of each habit.

Pitch Anything By Oren Klaff

Every time I read a new business book, I feel inspired and motivated.

Inspired; because I am learning new things and am broadening my horizon. And motivated because I immediately want to go out and apply my new learnings.

Unfortunately, my current working life does not always leave room for me to practice my new skills. This week I, for instance, read ‘Pitch anything’ by Oren Klaff and immediately wanted to go out and apply his – super cool – method for pitching business proposals. But since I spend most of my time creating videos on my sofa and don’t need billion-dollar investments for my company I don’t really have a chance to practice….

What I do instead is that I try to convert what I have learned and use it in my personal life instead. Not sure my husband and two teenagers always appreciate this approach, but I do believe it makes me a better mother and wife, nonetheless.

Anyways – Pitch anything is a very cool book, and I can only recommend reading it – both if you are actually pitching billion dollars deals to investors or if you, like me, end up using his Pitch-approach on more down-to-earth situations.

And should you find yourself short on time, why don’t you start by checking out my animated summary of the book on my YT channel. You can find it here:
