Cheat Sheet: Getting the Most from Reading Books to Problem Solve

Cheat Sheet: Getting the Most from Reading Books to Problem Solve | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Send to Kindle Listen to this Post Cheat Sheet: Getting the Most from Reading Books to Problem Solve When was the last time you tackled a problem at work, so large that others took notice? Or, are you someone who plays it safe, never doing anything that could get you in trouble? Life is about growing and evolving into the person you might become. And that often involves changing your mind and doing things differently. Years ago, I created a template for reviewing and summarizing books, and it was very detailed, but very cumbersome and difficult to use, so I didn’t always use it. It’s a good tool though, because there are sections in the template that will accelerate your professional development if you consistently answer those questions while reading. Although the template was overwhelming, that didn’t stop me from reviewing and summarizing books. But one thing I noticed, is that for the best reviews and summaries I wrote, there were certain components of the template that I a

Sandra Yancey, Founder of eWomen Network, Comes to Toronto | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Send to Kindle Listen to this Post Sandra Yancey, Founder of eWomen Network, Comes to Toronto What does it take to become successful? There are many people giving advice on what it takes to become successful, and some of them have attained professional success, so they know what they are talking about. But what you must realize, is that what one person did to become successful, might not work for you. That doesn’t mean that you should do nothing, because that doesn’t work either. I think that it’s important to look at many success formulas put forth by people who have attained mega success in many areas of their life. It also makes sense to apply the aspects of the formulas that makes sense for your situation. Recently, I attended an eWomen Network event, where their founder, Sandra Yancey, gave a riveting talk. Yancey is passionate and genuinely cares about others, and there were several instances during her talk, when I had to pause to process what she had to say about what it

What You Need to Know About Personal Branding and Brand Elevation

What You Need to Know About Personal Branding and Brand Elevation | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Send to Kindle Listen to this Post What You Ned to Know About Personal Branding and Brand Elevation What You Need to Know About Personal Branding and Brand Elevation There are a lot of lessons you can learn from the film and TV industry. They have been producing and marketing content for a long time. At a recent eWomen Network event, Rania Walker from Sparq Street shared some tips on building and elevating your personal brand. She asked the attendees how many of them wanted the opportunity to be featured on television and many hands went up. Although getting on TV has never been a goal of mine, as I listened to what Walker had to say, I realized that I could easily apply the points to content marketing. If you have dreams of appearing on TV (or simply want to become a better content producer), you have to assume the role of a producer. Producers have to know how to brand and elevate a TV show or film to get the maximum amount of viewers. So what exactly does this mean for you? In your

Is it Okay to Have fun While Grieving?

Is it Okay to Have fun While Grieving? | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Listen to this Post Is it Okay to Have fun While Grieving? After my mom died, it took about two years for me to start feeling like myself again. Just when I am getting comfortable feeling like myself, my brother dies the end of February while on vacation in Jamaica. Some friends tell me that it sucks, and others tell me that it stinks. And you know what, they are right, and it was very comforting for me to hear those words. But you know something, there is always that one sanctimonious person, who cannot restrain herself, who says the most inappropriate thing to a grieving person. In my case, she told me that the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Really, and do you think I needed to hear that a month after my brother died? My heart went out to Sheryl Sandberg, when her husband, Dave Goldberg died while on vacation. It’s only been three months since my brother died, and some days are really not great for me, but I acknowledge my feelings and try to live my life. Last summer, I signed

Very Good Lives by JK Rowling, Book Review

Very Good Lives by JK Rowling, Book Review | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Listen to this Post Very Good Lives by JK Rowling, Book Review Very Good Lives by JKRowling, Book Review Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination by JK Rowling is the commencement address she delivered to Harvard University graduates in 2008. While preparing for her speech, she asked herself two questions: What she wished she had learned at her graduation, and what lessons she has learned since graduating 21 years ago. She came up with two topics – the benefits of failure and the importance of imagination. Seven years after her graduation, JK Rowling experienced failure of epic proportion. She had a short-lived marriage, a single parent, who lived just above the level of being categorized as homeless. But in her view, the best thing about failure, is that it strips away all the inessentials, allowing you to focus on work that really matters. Fortunately for her, she learned to stop playing the “pretend game’ and instead channel her energi

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, Book Review

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, Book Review | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Listen to this Post Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, Book Review Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, Book Review Murder on the Orient Express: A Hercule Poirot Mystery (Hercule Poirot Mysteries) by Agatha Christie is a book that I have been wanting to read for a while now, and I just got around to reading it. I love mysteries because the well-written ones enable you to hone your problem solving skills, as you use the clues to figure out who committed the crime. Oftentimes, as with life, you do not have all the information, then you have to make assumptions. Additionally, all information is not created equal, so how much weight do you place on each clue, and which ones are red herrings, that you need to toss aside. Murder on the Orient Express is a Hercule Poirot Mystery, and I have said before when I reviewed The Murder of Roger Ackroyd: A Hercule Poirot Mystery (Hercule Poirot Mysteries): “After I finished reading the book, I realized that the end made

Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell

Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell | Everything Books | Scoop.it
Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell Are you striving to become a better problem solver? I love detective stories, and I have mentioned here that reading these kinds of books enable you to become a better problem solver. This year I am reading globally, so I chose Faceless Killers: The First Kurt Wallander Mystery by Henning Mankell because it is set in Ystad, Sweden. This book is ideal for learning how to problem solve because the case takes a long time to solve, which is probably more representative that in detective stories set in the West. The pace of the story is a lot slower, and the way that the detectives work is different from North America. An elderly farmer, Johannes Lovgren, is viciously attacked and killed, while his wife, Maria, is also attacked, but left to die from her wounds, with a noose around her neck. Their neighbor, Nystrom hears a weak cry, and his wife encourages him to go to their neighbor. The bloody scene that greets Nystrom is horrific. He calls the police a

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre, Book Review

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre, Book Review | Everything Books | Scoop.it
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre, Book Review The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre, Book Review First published in 1963, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold: A George Smiley Novel (George Smiley Novels) by John Le Carré is often found on the list of must-read books, and has been a constant best seller. John Le Carré was an intelligence officer before he became a writer, however, he swears that the story is not based on any of his experiences. He wrote The Spy Who Came in from the Cold before he left the service and received permission before he could publish his book. The book, set during the Cold War (The Cold War: 1947 1953), demonstrates the chilling horror of espionage that took place during that period. The book also shows the battle between nations to come out on top and the lengths they will go to, to win, in the spy business. In a 1997 Paris Review (Paris Review 39.143 (Summer 1997): p50-74) interview with John Le Carré, when the author is aske

The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller, Book Review The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller, Book Review When you open up The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller, there is a section called The Beginning, and as I was reading, I thought it was a true story, or a dramatization of a true story, but that is not the case. It is a work of fiction published in 1992, which achieved bestselling status, selling over 50 million copies. There are times when I wonder if something is wrong with me because you have these mega bestselling books, but when I read them, my reaction is ambivalent at best. I read The Bridges of Madison County because it was on my brother’s bookshelf, and it is a way for me to remember him. But I suppose when you think about it, people like the story because it’s about forbidden love. Michael Johnson and his sister, Carolyn, contact a writer to schedule a meeting.

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson, Book Review Katherine Paterson was inspired to write Bridge to Terabithia when her son’s close friend was killed by lightning. Published in 1977, Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson is a children’s book about the friendship between Jess Aarons and Leslie Burke. Nine year old Leslie is an only child and 10 year old Jess is one of five children and the middle child. Jess is feeling neglected as the middle child and doing too many chores in the household because his two older sisters are skilled at getting out of performing chores and his two younger sisters, May Belle who is six years old and Joyce Anne who is four are considered to be too young to help out around the home.  The father works very hard, so when he returns home from his long commute from DC, he is too tired and doesn’t pay any attention to Jess.

I try to stay away from books that everyone is talking about, but if I am honest, I am not always immune to the hype. And that was the case with The Girl on The Train. If you visit one of the bigger bookstores, the book occupies the premium real estate so it is front and centre, and you cannot help but seeing it. The Girl on a Train is very well written and it wasn’t a bad book, in fact, I liked the evolution of the main character. But in my humble opinion, there are other books that I much preferred, such as Strangers on a Train (which I have reviewed). And I just finished reading Bones Never Lie: A Novel (Temperance Brennan) by Kathy Reichs and The Hangman s Song (Detective Inspector Mclean) by James Oswald.

Listen to this Post The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Book Review The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins has been one of the most recommended books over the past six months. I bought my copy a few months ago and just got around to reading it. When I saw the name of the book, Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith came to mind, although the stories are very different. I think Highsmith’s book is a bit darker than this one. The Girl on the Train is well-written, I enjoyed and I recommend it, but I didn’t love it the way that so many people do. Any book that tells a story from multiple points of view, I find very tiresome, so it has nothing to do with The Girl on the Train, it’s me and my personal preference.

Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach follows his bestselling Jonathan Livingston Seagull, which I loved. I can’t say the same thing about this book, and let’s get my bias out of the way, I detest books where you have a “sage” trying to show you your errant ways, directing you to the proper path. Or it could be my introverted self, speaking, getting annoyed at the notion of some well-meaning person forcing you to speak, when you do not want to.

This was an epiphany for me because my book is based on interviews of highly successful people, and whenever I faced a problem, I often remembered parts of interviews that I had conducted. I was so excited that I told a friend about the experience, and she replied that it was brilliant, but I should get rid of the word “invisible.” She felt that the idea was ahead of its time. This didn’t work for me, because I thought the word invisible was a key component of the phrase. I stopped dead in my track and didn’t pursue the idea for 18 months.
