There are two books I like that some of you may find interesting.
The Not So Big Life by Sarah Susanka is a guide for people who are thinking about downsizing their lives and getting rid of the clutter. The author is an architect by training and likens life to the places we live. Just as we want to get the most from our homes, we want to get the most joy from our lives. It is a very thought-provoking book, in which Sarah writes about constructing our lives in the same manner we construct our living spaces, including only the things that matter.
Many of you may have read The Tipping Point or one of Malcolm Gladwell’s other books. How small ideas, projects and endeavors can make a huge difference in the outcomes is set forth in a manner that captures the imagination. He is a brilliant writer.
