Week 34: Weekend reading for health, wealth and happiness

By Sam Instone - August 20, 2020

Enjoy the current installment of “weekend reading for health, wealth and happiness.” Designed to broaden your horizons and foster positive change in your life, this week’s edition kicks off with a thought-provoking piece by the Harvard Business Review about ‘how to measure your life’. This includes a set of guidelines from HBS professor Clay Christensen that have helped him find meaning in his own life. 

Next we ask whether now is the right time to buy a property and share an article with 12 simple sketches that illustrate the path to wealth & financial well-being.

From there, we look at a fascinating article by former senior British Army officer, inspirational leader and Ironman champion David Labouchere on habits and rituals. 

There’s been a lot of talk about leadership during these crazy times, be that as a person, parent, spouse or in business. But what actually makes a leader? There’s one single principle that guides true, effective leadership, and it’s probably not what you think. In fact, it’s counter-intuitive for many people who aspire to be great leaders! That’s according to Tony Robbins who shares his #1 principle for leadership.

We follow this up with a link to HabitBull, a new app we are testing in the office which promises to help you smash your goals and build positive habits. In case you need any habit inspiration, we’ve finished with a Lifehack article on ways to create a positive mindset each day.

Enjoy the ‘light’ reading and happy weekend!
