Take a peek into my personal bookshelf (although really most books are on my bedside table!)
I love a good book. A good library. A good second-hand bookstore. I have more books than any other object in my house. More than clothes. More than dinnerware. They are my absolute love. I've included some of my favourites here. Let me know what you think.
The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte
This has been a foundational book for how I live and work. Centred around the pivotal question "How do I want to feel", this is a a new framework for goal setting and planning your life. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
This is the book where it all began. Where I found the words that I'd been seeking through my early teenage years. I read this in University and it moved me from Law to English Literature. Still grateful today.
Reinventing Organizations by Frederic Laloux
This puts my vision for ways of working into words on a page. I truly believe that Teal organisations are the way of the future and I will always work with organisations to implement this framework. Read this one and see where you land.
Get Remarkably Organised by Lorraine Murphy
This gem is full of practical, tangible and useful ways to get more organised. I revisit this so frequently - it is motivating and momentum building to just read it! I've implemented loads from this - and I am a big Lorraine Murphy fan forever.
Practice You by Elena Brower
I am still making my way through this journal - and it is a core part of my morning practice. Elena's watercolour artwork and words guide you through pages of journal prompts - try doing one a day and see what you discover about your self. You will love it.
The Familiars: A Novel by Stacey Halls
I love good historical fiction and this one is all about the witch trials when women were simply practicing midwifery. It is set in the same area that I imagine my ancestors found themselves in similar situations. A quick weekend read.
