38 - This is why you say “NO”

Have you ever had anyone commit to you in advance? A phone call, a meeting, an activity, a service? The obvious answer is yes, of course. After 3 months of committing to an interview for the Motivate Me Book Club, an author pushed back based on their conflicting schedule. Then, after 2.5 weeks of back and forth for rescheduling, sincerest apologies were finally communicated. Learn how this is why you say “NO”. We all make commitments in our daily lives to show up to work, to show up in our relationships, and to show up when we say we will. But what happens every time someone doesn’t follow through on an obligation? It breaks down trust. It breaks down confidence. It breaks down your future opportunities. The culture of busy, doing everything for everyone, needs to shift to a culture of finer necessity for those things that matter most. How do you do this? Listen to find out how lessons have been learned from overcommitting and underproducing.

37 - CHALLENGE DAY - The ONE Thing

How did “The ONE Thing” by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan measure up on an intentionally delayed challenge day? We wanted to give this book a longer duration before we challenged it. There seemed to be very applicable takeaways but could it stand the test of time and linger with us? How did this book work for you? This book promotes something that could apply to everyone but more importantly those with a serious task at hand. Focus. Once you discover what your ONE thing is to focus on it should help you achieve the success you seek. Doesn’t that sound great! Find out how this helped your host, Pineapple Jen, on this week’s episode on the #motivatemebookclub podcast. You can also refer to previous episodes for overviews of this book.

36 - Last Book for Season 1 of the MMBC

How is it possibly the last book of this first season? All good things must come to an end , as it goes. But fret not! Although it is the last to read, we will still be reflecting and reviewing our books through Challenge Days. Through this season we have successfully read quite a few good books. They have seemed to form a theme around “Habits” and this book feels like a good fit to end on. “Essentialism” by Greg McKeown. This is the disciplined pursuit of less. Essentialism is not one more thing - it’s a whole new way of doing everything. It’s about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come. What do you think? Tell us! motivatemebookclub@gmail.com. Grab a copy or an audio book today to join us for the last book of the season!

However, if you are like the majority of the world, with areas for improvement, this book has something for everyone. These agreements are instructions on how to live your best life. This is how to be happier. Once you discover it within you it should linger for a while, if not forever. Doesn’t that sound great! Find out why on this week’s episode on the #motivatemebookclub podcast. You can also refer to previous episodes for overviews of this book.

33 - Two Truths to Keep Habit Tracking

Keep going. You never know what success you will achieve until it happens and until then you need to keep trying. For a lot of us, it means starting with changing our habits and believing in what we are doing. Before the Golden Gate Bridge was built, the longest suspension bridge in the world was only 3,501 feet, 699 feet shorter than the proposed project. This coupled with strong winds and deep waters in the San Francisco Bay made the bridge a risky venture. Despite “expert opinion” against construction, the visionaries behind the construction forged ahead with their plans and proved successful in the end. Let’s this week’s episode’s “Two Truths” help you forge ahead with your goal and habit tracking to success.

31 - Habits are Hard

Habits are hard to change, adopt and get rid of. This has been no easy feat for your host, Pineapple Jen, to change her ways. Over the course of many books, ideas have been presented on how to develop successful habits. It seems that to be efficient or effective there are habits to adopt and habits to drop. It takes time and effort but which WAY of doing this works the best? It’s probably not the same for everyone. Habit tracking is what Jen has been trying to do, unsuccessfully. Why has this happened? We reflect on how tracking habits has NOT been something of a habit in the first place. Atomic Habits by James Clear offers another approach to habit change. The Melting Ice Cube analogy puts things into yet another perspective. Let’s give this book a read and find out what we can extract from it.

29 - The Four Agreements

This is an overview of “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Stemming from ancient Toltec wisdom, Ruiz suggests these four agreements are what can guide one to a place of personal freedom. As we grow from childhood, we develop an unconscious set of instructions for living life. According to Ruiz, many of these unconscious beliefs are arbitrary or false. The key to freedom is to become aware of these limiting thought patterns and to replace them with these agreements. You can almost use this book as a guide for self prescribed cognitive-behavioral therapy. What do you think about that? How could you apply these principles to your own dream of life?
