You can read my full notes on this book here. REASONS I ADORED THIS BOOK: It’s the Law of Attraction explained as quantum physics by a neuroscientist.

Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza – my full notes

My “full” notes don’t cover 3 areas of the book: (1) the lengthy description of how quantum physics work, (2) the lengthy description of how our neural networks work, (3) the details of Dispenza’s meditation process The way to mastery is PHILOSOPHY (learning intellectual info) —> INITIATION (initiating that knowledge into life by applying it enough times until you MASTER it If you wait for … Continue reading Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza – my full notes

5 Things I Learnt This Week

I have started turning my mornings into miracles, thanks to The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod – a book I first heard about a couple of years ago and wish I had read before now. The general idea is to get up an hour (or less) earlier than usual and use that time to work on yourself before you start reacting to life, processing kids etc. His acronym for the … Continue reading 5 Things I Learnt This Week

6 things I learnt this week: 9th August 2019

Taking time to do a “business plan” for your life is an amazing thing to do. I’ve spent countless months of my life doing them for work, and so why not for my own life? I always value the process of taking time away from the noise and focusing on a clean vision and how to execute it – turns out, it’s even more fun doing … Continue reading 6 things I learnt this week: 9th August 2019

5 things I learnt this week: 20th July 2019

The more I learn about psychedelics, the more fascinated I am, and the more excited for a future where these drugs can have huge benefits for everything from PTSD to patients staring at a terminal cancer diagnosis. Last year I read Stealing Fire, which is an incredible book on how to harness higher states of consciousness to increase performance (and enjoy life more). While meditation … Continue reading 5 things I learnt this week: 20th July 2019

Polyvagal Theory: how our nervous system really works

I have just finished The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory by Dr Stephen Porges. I found it a really tough, technical read. That said, I persevered because I found its messages to be incredibly important. This book has profoundly changed the way I understand my nervous system (admittedly off a very low base!!). My previous understanding of my nervous system: I need to spend … Continue reading Polyvagal Theory: how our nervous system really works

My full notes: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss

Tools of Titans is hands-down one of my favourite books of all time, and probably the one I’ve gifted the most. It’s a ridiculously valuable compilation of life advice from many seriously talented and successful people. Full disclosure: Tim divided the interviewees into Healthy, Wealthy and Wise categories and I liked this so much that I nicked it for this site! I organised my notes … Continue reading My full notes: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss

My full notes: The Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani

When I read the paper copy last summer I made detailed notes in Evernote so I that could refer to them easily. Since my move to Kindle, I do this with far fewer books so enjoy! You can also read my book review of this book here. Question the Brules  Often our religion or politics are not what we would choose but come from being … Continue reading My full notes: The Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani

Book Review: The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates

I only review books that have blown my mind, helped me grow and taught me things I couldn’t possibly have figured out for myself. My reviews are bulleted for easy consumption. REASONS I ADORED THIS BOOK: It’s a very frank, vulnerable, personal insight into the mind of a woman who we know as a hugely wealthy and high-profile public figure. I thought her honesty was … Continue reading Book Review: The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates

7 things I learnt this week: 6th July 2019

That doing a weekly ‘what I learnt’ list of bullets is a brilliant way to consolidate, refine and commit to memory the most important learnings from the crazy amount of input I take on board each week (from Chip Conley on the Tim Ferriss podcast, episode 374) That if we can devote (huge amounts of) time to strategy sessions and business plans for our business, … Continue reading 7 things I learnt this week: 6th July 2019
