Book: A Whole New Mind.
I just finished a book that I loved and wanted to share. It's not a typical book I'd expect me to read but it was a wonderful refreshing break. It's called A Whole New Mind: Why Right Brainers Will Rule the Future. If I didn't know better, I'd call it a business book. But it's really so much more than that. There are great stories, lots of resources and links to fun quizzes. I love quizzes! It basically looks at how we are coming out of the Information Age where left-brainers ruled the world and garnered all of the attention and success. But now we are coming into a new age, the Conceptual Age. That's because many of the things that the left-brainers did up until now are either being automated by computers or outsourced to China and India. So, if you want to be relevant, you have to approach your work life from the right brain. Many of the tips-and-tricks are things I naturally do anyway which gave me a huge confidence boost and a giant sigh of relief. I'm handing it to my husband who is totally not right brained. I think he'll love it, too. It's fun, interesting and entertaining. Here's a fun quiz here and here. And you can see an interview with the author and Oprah here.
