Learn something new everyday | week ending 18/3/17

You can certainly tell what types of books I have been reading and listening to this past week! I have been learning all about how our mind works from the book ‘The Chimp Paradox’ by Dr Steve Peters. This is a fascinating book which I would highly recommend you check out. When I uploaded a photo of it to Instagram, I was shocked at the high amount of feedback from people who have read it and said it had a huge impact on them! I have been aiming to read this and learn something each day for around 30  minutes at a time.

The other book which I have been listening to is ‘Unshakeable’ by Tony Robbins. Tony Robbins is a hugely successful business man from the US. I only downloaded this book to my audible account after getting one of those recommendation emails, I didn’t even read what it was about! It is about investing in stocks and shares and how to make the biggest return on your investment. To some this may sound super boring, however I have found it so interesting. I tend to listen to audio books when I am driving but I have been putting this on at home as well when I have been cooking just to get my fix everyday. It is something which I don’t know very much about so it is all pretty new to me. It is on my #30B430 list to invest in something so who knows, this could be what I have a go at!

15th: A human’s attention span is now shorter than a goldfish
