simple year course review - 12 months of guided simplicity


As every month, I’m sharing here with you best articles and books that I’ve read (or started reading) last month. As a work at home mom, home manager and a wife of long hours working man, I don’t have time for reading things that are of a poor quality and that aren’t excellent. So you can be sure that my recommendations are really powerful, as the title of the series says, and worth reading. Get inspired by November’s good reads of my choice.

Are there books that have taught you something essential or powerful? Tell me in comments.

The article

7 ways I’m minimizing decision fatigue in my daily life by Anne

I’ve written about our limited ability to making decisions and ways how successful people overcome this problem in my last article about simplifying eating habits. Anne writes, among other, about eating the same thing every day, building habits and limiting options (so minimalist!). Worth reading and implementing.

November’s good reads: Books

Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming the Obstacles Between Vision and Reality by Scott Belsky

As the title says, it’s a book about putting our ideas into reality, in other words, about getting big things done. It’s addressed to creative and people and leaders, but everyone will find there strategies to implement in private and professional life. It covers the psychology of creative people, telling you that you’re not alone if you fail to execute your ideas and giving you solutions to be productive. I know some of the mindset and techniques (for example from The Art of Less Doing course) but there are many additional ideas with which I can develop and be better at making my ideas happen.

Oh, and the book is quite new, so you’ll find there solutions for emails and other electronic stuff.


The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale

It was introduced to me as a classic book and a must read. I’ve just started and I surely want to continue.


How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie

The next book recommended to me as a classic and a collection of really powerful methods for building good relationships. I’ve just started and I see that I want to learn with this book and to come back to it, let’s say every two months, to recall the information and check my improvements. There’s no business, no good marriage and no happy mother without the ability to build and care for relationships!
