Uneori avem nevoie de un imbold, cât de mic, pentru a începe să facem mici schimbări pe care le consideram de mult timp necesare, sau, în rare cazuri, de care nici nu știam că avem nevoie! Una dintre formele în care pot apărea aceste imbolduri este lectura. Cred că este clar deja că și pe noi cărțile ne ghidează, fie că este vorba de personaje care ne inspiră, fie de informații științifice din cărți de non-ficțiune. Iar pentru că personajele pe care le putem găsi ca fiind un bun exemplu sunt atât de diverse iar gusturile individuale diferă, ne-am limitat mai jos doar la adevărurile universale și palpabile. Iată deci top zece cărți care credem că vă te face să treceți la treabă, sau care te vor pune pe gânduri, în 2019.

3. Fă planificarea mai ușoară! (Art of Life Admin de Elizabeth Emens)
Every day, an unseen form of labour creeps into our lives, stealing precious moments of free time, placing a strain on our schedules and relationships, and earning neither appreciation nor compensation in return. Scheduling doctor’s appointments. Planning a party. Buying a present. Filling out paperwork. This labour is ‘life admin’ – the kind of secretarial and managerial work necessary to run a life and a household. Emens shows how this form of labour is created and how it affects our lives; how we might reduce, redistribute and even prevent it; what ‘admin personalities’ we might have; and how to deal with admin in relationships.
4. Fă-ți timp doar pentru tine ( Little Book of Hygge de Meik Wiking)
Hygge is the feeling you get when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, in warm knitted socks, in front of the fire, when it is dark, cold and stormy outside. It that feeling when you are sharing good, comfort food with your closest friends, by candle light and exchanging easy conversation. The Little Book of Hygge will give you practical steps and tips to become more hygge.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck is the antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

Drawing on vivid examples from his clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity’s oldest myths and stories, Peterson takes the reader on an intellectual journey like no other.
