Below are three books I found insightful this year and you may too.
Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg
The mechanics of being good with money is mostly about healthy behaviours you repeat – ie. habits.
Often I reference ‘Atomic Habits’ by James Clear, which draws on the work of Stanford University behavioural scientist, BJ Fogg.
This year Fogg released his own book ‘Tiny Habits‘, which provides an excellent how-to guide to building healthy habits that stick.
The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel
Our beliefs about money, our mindset, greatly influence the behaviours and habits we choose.
Infused with fascinating stories Morgan Housel shares 20 philosophies that will help you have a happier relationship with money.
The postscript, ‘A Brief History of Why the U.S. Consumer Thinks the Way They Do’ provides an excellent contextual insight of common beliefs that aren’t fact and can lead to money trouble.
The Soul of Money by Lynne Twist
‘Scarcity’ is a prevalent mindset of our first-world economy that undermines our wellbeing.
Lynne Twist makes a compelling case to reject that cultural narrative and pursue a sense of sufficiency that facilitates an abundance mindset.
‘I am enough’ and ‘I have enough’.
The reward is greater happiness and freedom to pursue your joy and the contribution you were born to make.
