The Power of NOW

The Power of NOW

Ekhart Tolle’s message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle’s clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who’s ever wondered what exactly “living in the now” means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container–more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.

Tolle packs a lot of information and inspirational ideas into The Power of Now. (Topics include the source of Chi, enlightened relationships, creative use of the mind, impermanence and the cycle of life.) Thankfully, he’s added markers that symbolise “break time”. This is when readers should close the book and mull over what they just read.

‘THE POWER OF NOW can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now.’ — Oprah Winfrey ‘Pointing to the portals of the eternal Present, this practical mystic’s modern gospel offers transcendent truths that set us free.’ — Dan Millman ‘In the self-help heaven that is the US, Eckhart Tolle is fast becoming the next Deepak Chopra. His book, THE POWER OF NOW, is the bible du jour – a must-read for anyone looking for a modern take on spirituality…Essential reading for anyone who might be feeling weighed down by the past or fearful of the future’. — Red ‘This book is generating quite a buzz of excitement. It is quite simply one of the clearest and most accessible texts on becoming more present that we have seen.’ — Kindred Spirit ‘Reading this book has taught me to witness my actions from several viewpoints. I have read it many times over and I get more from it each time I dip in. I try to read a few pages each morning and carry those words with me throughout the day. I’ve recommended it to lots of friends, who have also found it helpful.’ — Belinda Carlisle

Work On Your Business, Not In It

The E Myth Revisited

The E Myth Revisited

I wish I’d read this book 10 years ago.. There are so many “Doh” moments, where I found myself going, that’s where I went wrong.. So many of us get it wrong, and this should be essential reading.. I can’t believe no one told me to read it before. (Many thanks to Simon Hedley, I owe you one for recommending this)

Michael Gerber’s The E-Myth Revisited should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting a business or for those who have already taken that fateful step. The title refers to the author’s belief that entrepreneurs–typically brimming with good but distracting ideas–make poor businesspeople. He establishes an incredibly organised and regimented plan, so that daily details are scripted, freeing the entrepreneur’s mind to build the long-term success or failure of the business. You don’t need an MBA to understand or follow its directives; Gerber takes time to explain buzzwords and complex theories. Written in a clear and well-paced manner, The E-Myth Revisited is like receiving advice from an old friend.
