What I’m Reading Now

Just posted this on the Ryze “Ultimate Serious Writers Group” and cross-posting it here for the record (one less thing to file where I can’t find it!) – these books are in addition to Chris Howard’s book as in the previous post.

“If Aristotle Ran General Motors”, Tom Morris, 1997, subtitled “the new soul of business” – recommended to me when I mentioned in an ezine that I had been reading about the Socrates Cafe phenomenon. I have studied Aristotle and other early Greek – and more modern – philosophers, so have some framework, although that is not necessary to read the book. I’m finding it not the most engaging read – maybe this former professor was more exciting in the lecture theater.

“The Power of Intention – Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way” – Dr Wayne Dyer. To quote usefully from the dustjacket blurb, “This book explores intention – not as something you do – but as an energy you’re a part of.” I find Dyer’s approach to personal growth and evolution more accessible than the obsessive goal setting some people advocate. But then I’m a Dyer fan from way back 🙂

  1. Hi Des! 🙂
    It is a paradox I think that Dyer wants us to not be attached to nothing and connected to it at the same time.
    The human mind has been told to set goals and then strive for them when it’s much easier to “be the goal” and experience it as if it’s already happened with a knowing that you’ll attract the goal much faster than if you considered it as something outside of yourself.
    Best wishes to you on this journey.
