I’ve been a big fan of Jonathan Fields, the founder of Good Life Project, for a while. We have a similar outlook on life, and yet I always learn something when I experience his work. He’s not only written a few great books, he has one of the few podcasts that I’ve kept in my playlist for multiple years and still listen to every episode.
Jonathan’s latest book is called How to Live a Good Life. It’s part how-to manual, part memoir, and all good advice. If you’ve followed my work for any length of time, I know this book will resonate with you, too.

I just finished The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I read half of it on New Year’s Eve 2016 and the other half on New Year’s Day 2017. It’s funny that such a short book should take me two years to read, ha ha!
