Currently reading Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life: Eyal, Nir: 9781948836531: Amazon.com: Books. Didn’t realize I had a problem until now
What I like about it is that the author gives you tools. He offers applications and not just theories.
It’s a bit dated, but I picked up Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway at a used book sale and finally read it. I was expecting advice for overcoming things like fear of heights, but what it tackles is what I would call “whole life fears”—the fears that keep you from pursuing what you really want in life. Or the fear that keeps you paralyzed when you need to make a decision.
It was so incredibly helpful for me and I think it would be for anyone who wants to make changes but gets stuck in a cycle of “but what if ---- happens?”
Okay, so this one is for all the creatives out there (which, imho, is everyone ;P).
Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland is about the mental, emotional, and social struggles of being an artist, and it’s ridiculously relatable. It’s very much about working (through creating) too!
I keep gifting this book to people because idk, everyone could use a copy.
Here’s a link to buy a much cheaper, used copy, too.
