    Black Box Thinking by Matthew Syed | One Minute Book Review

    Black Box Thinking by Matthew Syed | One Minute Book Review

    What’s your relationship with failure like? Do you accept it as part of the process of progression or does it debilitate you?

    This a question many of us ask ourselves when we inevitably encounter failure. We either use it as a learning opportunity or we become entrenched in our ways of thinking blaming everyone else for the failure. 🤷‍♂️

    This book examines many different concepts, such as cognitive dissonance, defining failure and achieving small steps over giant leaps. It’s one of the rare books that I read that leaves me questioning many different elements not only of myself but of society as a whole.

    How can we all take more responsibility for the role that we have in society and apply these principles to create a better society? I do believe it is by constantly seeking the correct ways of improvement as this book suggests on multiple occasions. But it is also changing the stigma behind failure. Not as a badge of negative connotation, but instead of honour knowing that the same mistake can be prevented in the future. 📚

    Another great book that I have read that I recommend. It seems every book I am reading at the moment is 💯.

    Appreciate @matthewsyedauthor for writing this, I look forward to reading your other work as well. 👍📚

    Have you read this? If so, what were your thoughts? 📚

    Dare To Lead by Brene Brown | One Minute Book Review

    Dare To Lead by Brene Brown | One Minute Book Review

    I had heard so much about this book that I almost felt obliged to read it. As you can tell from the amount of highlights in this post, the book wasn’t my cup of tea. (British slang) ☕️

    The book focuses on how we can become more open with how we engage with our colleagues at work. It defines the differences between armoured and daring leadership for us to put into practise.

    The main issue I had with the book is it wasn’t saying anything original. This is partly due to the subject matter not being revolutionary and my experience with reading around this topic. But I felt the points weren’t expressed in a way that suited my liking. 📚

    Even so I do think the book can provide value for anyone wanting to become more vulnerable and open with their interactions at work or elsewhere. 👍

    Essentialism by Greg McKeown | One Minute Book Review

    Essentialism by Greg McKeown | One Minute Book Review

    💬 What is an ‘essentialist’?   An essentialist is someone who can decipher the difference between what is truly important and what is not. Often in life we focus on the things that are not important, substituting them for the things that are. 🤔   This is usually not because we choose to. But rather than we have not been trained to think as essentialists. Becoming an essentialists, whether at home, school or work, is an active choice we make daily. It is making the decision to only do the things that give YOU the most value. 😊   My personal journey to becoming more of an essentialist started when I read this book a couple of years ago. Since then I have been actively making choices to choose the things that give me the most value. I still fail from time to time, but the self-awareness of actively asking yourself these questions transforms your life. 💯   This is the value of re-reading books. The ideas remain true but provide more value as you spend more time acting out the principles in your life. 👍📚   Thank you to @greg for sending me his book and I can’t wait to discuss it more next week on @book podcast.  Thank you for watching this video.
