Book 1 – Man’s Search for meaning by Viktor Frankly

(Life’s) Meaning can come from three sources: purposeful work, love, and courage in the face of -unavoidable- difficulty(suffering).

“The meaning of your life is to help others find the meaning of theirs.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s search for Meaning.


Book 2 – The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

“There’s a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom.

How are you start your 2022? Finding the meaning of life is finding purpose. With purpose you can live for more than yourself.

In our modern world ideologies, nihilism and narcissism have been sold as self love. Do you intend to have a better blueprint?


Book 3 – Unf*k Yourself by Gary John Bishop,…

…emphasizes the importance of taking action rather than spending time altering our thoughts and emotions.

This urban philosophy places importance on taking responsibility for our success, instead of blaming external circumstances, and dwelling on self-doubt.
