Drive: The Surprising Truth about What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink
Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer
The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg
Imagine by Jonah Lehrer was my favorite book. As I read it, I kept stopping to share with my husband. Imagine shares lots of interesting stories about how creativity works using well known people, artists and businesses as examples. I took a lot way from this book. As I read, I thought "I do that", "I used to do that," and "I need to try do more of that." Everyone is creative. The book explains how creativity works in the brain, how we encourage/discourage creativity and how being social helps us be more creativity.
The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg shares stories about how we form habits and how we change habits. I did not read it as a "how-to" book. Instead, it helped me understand how habits form in the brain which is interesting stuff. The most interesting thing to me about habits are how developing keystone habits in a work place influences all aspects of the work environment.
