Paul’s Recommended Reading List

I love books!  What more can I say?  Books that carry weight and substance that I can apply to my life in a meaningful way are treasured and usually freely passed on to those around me.  While I cannot physically put a book in each of your hands, I can at least list some of them here and give you links to find them.  I will try to include an Amazon link to each of them in case you would like to see more about the book.

If you know of a book I may not have read please let me know the title so that I may.  Who knows it may end up on this list as well!

Please note that this is not in any way a full list of my favorite writers or books, but instead have been non-fictional aids in my life.

Thanks for visiting

Books!

Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road  by Neil Peart

Written by one of my favorite drummers through some of his most painful times.  A book of healing and finding yourself on the open road.

Hyperbole and a Half  by Allie Brosh

This is an amazing little book.  There were times when I was dealing with certain issues that I couldn’t not explain, nor could others always understand.  In this book I found that I wasn’t always alone and sometimes the stories even explained where I was.

The One Thing by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan

This is one of the books that really started me on this new journey.  It’s filled with great exercises to remove the clutter (mentally & perhaps physically) from your life and get focused on what’s really important in each area.

Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams  by Mike Dooley

I actually enjoyed this as an audio book.

QBQ!  The Question Behind the Question®        Practicing Personal Accountability at Work and in Life: What to Really Ask Yourself to Eliminate Blame, Complaining and Procrastinations by John G. Miller

This book I highly recommend to alter our thinking and attitudes, specifically in the corporate or work setting.  It frees us to look at things differently, and helps us to be the first step in what becomes the toxic energy dump.    This was the next step in a transitional period to change my attitudes and thus my experiences in work settings, which transfers into all aspects of my life.

Fish! A Proven Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results by Stephen C. Lundin, Harry Paul and John Christensen.

This was the next step for me on this path.  A parable to help us remove the barriers that keep us stuck.   Remove the “toxic energy dump” and revitalize how we work and interact with our team.  It’s a great story with real life lessons and is literally transferable to any workplace environment.  There’s enough energy in this short book to get you boosted for many days to come!

Author Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has also had many books that have mingled in my life frequently.  I have not found a book of his yet that hasn’t had an impact on my thoughts, attitudes or life in general.  Here are a few that I have read in the order that I have read them.

 

The Mist-Filled Path: Celtic Wisdom for Exiles, Wanderers and Seekers by Frank MacEowen

This book, though more on a spiritual plane, impacted me at a very important time in my life.  Through it’s pages (complete with a few exercises on reconnecting with ourselves and nature) words just seemed to bring me back to a beginning long forgotten, and a calmness longingly needed.

The WEB!

This is something i have enjoyed for quite a long time.  Notes from the Universe every day in your inbox, giving you a little bit of a lift!
