Back To School: Let's Discover Books That Shape Our World"
...New Academic Year...New Skills For Life!
"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
...as our summer break is coming to an end, and some of us have already gone back to work for the new academic year, what magical things have you achieved during those long days stretching into each other between the months of July and August?
In this first session of our Cultural Expedition, after summer break, how about exploring readings or travels that shaped your vision and your world from the perspective of self-study.
In a fast-paced growing economy where new skills are constantly required to remain competitive, new challenges arise faster than expected, how can we best cope with escaping from stress?
I invite you to share your thoughts, exchange tips, and put forward new and innovative strategies for this academic year, to meet these challenges of our modern era. Let’s resist the tendency of that ephemeral society.
As for me, I will share with you the reading of THE POWER OF HABIT, a book written by Charles Duhigg. Written for the business community, this book immediately gained a worldwide reputation in fields such as fighting against obesity and learning new organisational skills.Simple to read, captivating and educational yet has the power to inspire and transform attitudes and endeavours to improve one’s self.
What have you planned to read next? I have discovered a new book to read that might help us to understand our global fast-paced economy in the most efficient way. The next book that I highly recommend you read at your convenience is called: 12 RULES FOR LIFE by Jordan Peterson, the No1 International Bestseller.
We could gather for around two hours in a friendly and informal way. Kindly bear in mind this is NOT a political discussion, on the contrary it is an invitation to discuss new strategies to put in place for this new academic year. As it is always best to exchange viewpoints and discuss our work-challenges with others.
Looking forward to meeting around a drink.
