    The book of Ecclesiastes. I’ve found that almost any question I have about life can be found and answered in those 12 chapters.

  7. Some great recommendations here and I'm definitely going to add some to my every growing too read list! So thanks everyone for sharing.

    A few from me:

    Digital Minimalism - Cal Newport
    You are not a Gadget - Jaron Lanier
    10 Arguments to Delete Your Social Media - Jaron Lanier
    Notes on a Nervous Planet - Matt Haig

    As you can see, a bit of a theme throughout these book recommendations but each one really had an impact on me and they all share some common threads in regards to technology and how it effects us.

    I have over the last month removed myself from all social media, I wasn't much of a user anyway but have officially terminated my accounts. This is also my first day signing onto my laptop in the whole time of this streak. Approaching with the mindset of if I can't go on my laptop I can't watch P and it's proving effective so far. Just giving you a little background too highlight that I'm quite passionate about trying to reduce screen/technology based time.

    Best of luck with your progress, I hope you like The Art of War. Interesting book for sure.

  12. The War of Art by Steven Pressfield (Don't sleep)
    Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins (Buckle up)

    I think the most important one has to be " A Man's Search for Meaning." Victor Frankl's Book on Logotherapy. A Classic!

  14. I finished Exodus yesterday, amazing book. I like to compare the liberation of Israel from Egypt with the liberation of us from PMO: end of suffering and start of blessings.

    I liked battlefield of the mind although I had trouble applying the last 3rd of it. If you haven’t read boundaries yet definitely check that out. It describes a lot of addictions as the result of setting weak boundaries with yourself
