Book of the Week: Why We Make Mistakes

Why we make mistakes

We all know that saying “fake it til’ you make it” right? Well most of us do and it’s something that has been encouraged for as long as I could remember, I can be the first to tell you that it’s a catch 22. To be quite honest I don’t necessarily recommend having that type of mentality to some degree, yes it has helped me get to where I am today but I had to learn some HARD lessons because I would dive in head first and then ask questions later. It wasn’t until I started working for my current boss who literally called me out on my bullshit, he asked me stop answering questions I don’t know so confidently and incorrectly. Twas a humbling lesson but a lesson that was much needed. Ever since then, I simply say, “I don’t know, but I can definitely find out” and guess what I discovered? People are actually cool with that answer! It’s honest and proactive, showing you are willing to go above and beyond just to give them satisfaction.

That brings me to Culture Fuzz’s Book of the Week, Why We Make Mistakes, by Joseph T. Hallinan. This book gives us great and detailed insight as to why we think we are smarter than we actually are which then leads to creating more mistakes that all could have been avoided had we just stepped back, acknowledged we weren’t 100% sure and then proceeded to assess the situation with more accuracy. This type of mentality is so common that it’s even taken lives. Yes, people died for being too confident.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did because I devoured it!

Book of the Week: Happy Pocket Full of Money

 A Happy Pocket Full of Money

By David Cameron Gikandt

This book completely changed my life when it came to my views and a mental approach to finances. Incorporating a mix of quantum physics and a never ending source of energy, this book challenges you to open your eyes, or maybe even your third eye. I have found that there is a problem when it comes to how money is thought about and it's due to a lack of financial education and the overall relationship with it, there is something that is lacking and Happy Pocket Full of Money is a great place to start.

Book of the Week: Start with Why by Simon Sinek

Book of the Week

Start with Why

by Simon Sinek

You may have heard of Simon Sinek from his viral video, Ted Talk: Start with Why, and listened to his concept of the "Golden Circle". If not, it's definitely encouraged to watch even the 3 minute cuts of his presentation. Simon's approach on how to run a business and how maintain happiness throughout life is completely refreshing and a much needed reminder of how we can all reach our point of happiness. That unless we remind ourselves or figure out what our purpose is for doing what we are doing... we will never find fulfillment.
