Finished Habits…

Finished up this book over the holidays :: https://seedvc.blog/2016/11/26/next-book-up/

Worth a read. Definitely gave me ideas for other ways to deal with children. Going to try and put those ideas into action for the new year for my 9 year old.

Fascinating insights on how memory is something separate from habits and how the brain deal with them both. I think it reaffirmed for me that habits are good and I need to try and create some better ones for life and work.

Been listening to a few podcasts lately and realizing more and more how much I love stoicism – haven’t found a great book on it yet. Started reading this but not loving the style of it :: Letters from a Stoic (Penguin Classics)

Starting Jan 1 going to give this one a whirl :: The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living

I’ll let you know how things go.

Marketing in 4 easy steps :: Seth Godin

Always amazing to me how Seth can boil huge subjects down to simple steps.

Here he attacks marketing :: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2016/08/marketing-in-four-steps.html

I love step 4:

The last step is so often overlooked: The part where you show up, regularly, consistently and generously, for years and years, to organize and lead and build confidence in the change you seek to make.

I think this is the one the startup crowd likes to overlook. The patience required in building a real brand and how that takes time and consistency.

Hence – my newest read :: http://www.nokpis.com/2016/08/21/how-brands-grow-books-2/
