Here are 3 books personally recommended from our founder.
Read The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery because life is a story of love and loneliness. I read this once every few years to realign my perspective. It is the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his tiny planet to travel the universe, learning about the traps of adulthood.
Favorite quote: “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Read Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose by Tony Hsieh because the best way to keep customers is to consistently delight them. Learn about the growth of Zappos to over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales.
Favorite quote: “Happiness is really just about four things: perceived control, perceived progress, connectedness (number and depth of your relationships), and vision/meaning (being part of something bigger than yourself).”
Read The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff because the secret wisdom of Taoism is the key to not pulling out all your hair when things go wrong in your day-to-day life. Explore the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh while soaking up invaluable lessons on simplicity and natural living.
Favorite quote: “There are things about ourselves that we need to get rid of; there are things we need to change. But at the same time, we do not need to be too desperate, too ruthless, too combative. Along the way to usefulness and happiness, many of those things will change themselves, and the others can be worked on as we go. The first thing we need to do is recognize and trust our own Inner Nature, and not lose sight of it.”
