Wisdom and advice for managing your finances, real estate, and life
In "Your Farm In the City," Lisa Taylor and the gardeners of Seattle Tilth, a 12-acre farm and learning center, provide the single most comprehensive, beautifully designed, step-by-step guide to creating this sort of personal urban farm that I've seen yet.
9. "Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success" reflects the authors' translation of the strategies they have used to help corporate clients implement billion-dollar changes into a user-friendly system for individuals struggling with making permanent changes to any area of their lives.
10. "Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward." Cloud, a clinical psychologist and coach to business leaders, is clear from the preface: "Today, he says, may be the enemy of your tomorrow." By this, Cloud means that many of the good things that are in store for your life can simply not begin or enter your experience until you let go of some things and people, or stop doing things or being in relationships that are not working to further the life you want to have.
My absolute favorite book of any type from 2011, "Necessary Endings" is masterful. Cloud has compiled inspiration and action steps in one nuanced guide to making some of the hardest decisions, conversations and life changes we humans must make in order to thrive.
