Having reviewed nearly 40 books over the past year, I figured it would be a good time to take stock.
To reflect on those books which I particularly enjoyed.
But where to start?!
Honestly, I’ve garnered so many insights from so many of these books! From economics to relationships and everything in between, each one has offered something unique.
It’s been a real pleasure delving into them and I’m looking forward to many more ‘wow’ moments over the coming years!
It wouldn’t be fair to single out any book. They’ve all been well worth the time. The only thing I can really do is present my favourite takeaways in some sort of logical order so that hopefully you too can learn something from them.
Of course, reviews are one thing. If you really want to get the best out of these books, go ahead and read them!
That’s the only advice I’d give.
Time to let the Donkey see the Kong.
Life-changing quotes – reveal yourselves…

The problem is a lot of you are fronting on your content because you’re not willing to be authentic. The ironic thing is all the magic’s in the s*** that’s corny.
It just is.
You all look the same.
Your nuance is the only currency you can trade on because it’s the only thing that’s not replicable.
Run the f*****g marathon. Keep it humble. Put out good content.
If your happiness requires other people to behave the way you want them to behave, what are the chances you’re going to stay happy in your life?
When I experience suffering, I feel the tension and say “uhh, the brain’s trying to hijack the mind.”
The mind. Not my mind.
That’s an important distinction.
… those aren’t your thoughts.
Those thoughts have been around forever.
You call them your thoughts and as long as you make them your thoughts, it will be extremely hard for you to separate from them because you’ve identified with them…
Trade your expectations for appreciation and in that moment, you will change your life…
