Do you sometimes find yourself sitting back, avoiding confrontation and later thinking "Why didn't I speak my mind?". Or alternatively do you often find your fuse is too short and you instead reflect saying "I wish I could have kept my composure and got my point across better without losing my cool". If so then perhaps a book like this may help.
Mindfulness and meditation have really grabbed my attention over the last 6 months. So much so that I have decided to spend a fair bit more time and attention on deepening my understanding of these topics. Recently I read and reviewed Altered Traits which discusses the science behind the positive benefits meditation can provide (here: http://www.drchrisharper.co.uk/blog/book-review-altered-traits ). I have followed that up with another book that has been highly recommended to me giving more detailed instructions on various meditation techniques available.
In March 2017 I happened to spot a book in my local library and thought "that might be interesting". That choice was in hindsight probably the most influential book related decision I made last year. How to be a productivity ninja resulted in a paradigm shift for how I approach my time and attention management. It culminated in me adopting the second-brain concept which I still refer to multiple times every day and I really cannot foresee any way I will ever want to give these methods up.
Were you properly taught about tooth whitening at uni? I wasn't. Everything I learned about it came from what my VT trainer told me and then a few snippets from the forums and one lecture at a conference a few years ago. I had naively been thinking that was good enough and that I was pretty knowledgable about whitening having provided it many times over recent years. Now I realise how little I actually knew.
