Happy New Year! report #NewYearBooks — 9 Comments

  1. I haven’t read anything this week that supports my 2015 projects, resolutions or goals, BUT I do have one on my newly-created TBR list for 2015 called The Organized Mind. I’m hoping it helps me with one of my two words for the year: focus, with the other word being equilibrium.

    • Focus and equilibrium are great Year words! The Organized Mind sounds useful — especially the subtitle “Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload.”

  2. The only books I’ve read this week to support my goals are children’s books. I want to read to my kids every day this year and I have so far.

    Thanks for the reminder about The War of Art! I plan on starting it today.

  3. Love the idea of improving your mood. I’m choosing the word “play” this year and I’m trying to remind myself of the image of me and others as “empty boats” as described by Mark Salzman’s most recent memoir.

  4. I am definitely more of a “thinking” than “feeling” person. I like the idea of mentally filing situations and labeling them with a feeling. Sounds like a good book for me to add to the TBR pile.

    Happy New Year, Joy!

  5. I haven’t started The War of Art yet, but I’m excited to be reading Making Ideas Happen. I’ll have to check out A Short Guide to a Long Life and Do More Great Work.
