Heeeyy hi! I acquired Personal Growth Book Club after the original organizer dropped it. I’ve ran Bicycle Dreams Book Club on meetup since Nov 2020 and will run this (in tandem) for the remainder of 2021, with a desire to merge the two to minimize MeetUp fees. Welcome! Please join Bicycle Dreams Book Club as well if you find value in this sorta thing. Excited to chat with you soon! - Christine
We discuss self-help, popular psychology and philosophy, books on subjects of productivity, relationships, mental health, leadership, mindfulness and (reasoned, non-dogmatic) spirituality.
Participants are welcome (but not expected) to share personal experiences related to the subject matter of the book. All information must be treated as confidential.
The business lets us use their space free of charge. Let's support them by buying some coffees and snacks!
By far the closest voting yet! By a mere 2 votes the winner is....
So Good They Can’t Ignore You: why skills trump passion in the quest for work you love
By Cal Newport
Author of bestsellers “Deep Work”, “Digital Minimalism” and “A world without email”
Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that “follow your passion” is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed pre-existing passions rare and have a little to do with how most people end up loving their work- but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping.
With the current covid aftermath this feels so relevant and I’m excited to read and chat about it!
