Erin’s Top 22 All-Time Best / Favorite Non-Fiction Books

Your company will never be a market leader, until it learns discipline … Choosing a value discipline is not choosing a strategic goal – it is a central act that shapes every subsequent plan and decision the company makes, coloring the entire organization. It defines what the company does, and therefore what it is … What sets the inner workings of market leaders apart from their also-ran competitors is the sophistication and coherence of their operating models.

Wherever you are, you could celebrate Thanksgiving today.
… A modern Thanksgiving would celebrate two things:

  • The people in our lives who give us the support and love that we need to make a difference, and…
  • The opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing. The ability to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create.
-Seth Godin

Positive psychologist and author of Flow, The Psychology of Optimal Experience, defines FLOW as:

  • In the moment, a total involvement with life
  • When attention is totally invested in a realistic goal and at the same time one’s skills are matched to the required action
  • The state of mind in which we are so engaged in an activity (that uses our strengths) that in that moment, nothing else seems to matter
  • Optimal experience

Think rock climbing, ballet dancing, and other sports. Imagine sailing, tennis, and anything done at the Olympics. Imagine games, art, hobbies. Also music and yoga. It could come from developing and applying skills such as poetry or philosophy. It might also include doing surgery, or some other part of our professional lives.
The experiences that create flow become so enjoyable that we do them just for their own sake.
Scientific research has shown that FLOW is on a short list of things that truly make a difference in creating the experience of happiness.
