Square One

I adore self-help books. I'm not sure why. I don't exactly believe what they say or do what they tell me to do. Maybe it's more that they are entertaining.

My favourite self-help book of all-time is "Finding Your Own North Star: How to claim the life you were meant live" by Martha Beck. I recently finished re-reading it for the third time.

I don't think I have actually done any of the suggested tasks in this book...but they seem sensible. If I was going to follow the advice of any self-help book it would probably be this one.

The thing that struck me on this reading though was the Change Cycle. In particular, Square One: Death and Rebirth. Hmmm... And the mantra for square one: "I don't know what the hell is going on, and that's OK." Yes. I like that...

I'd go into further detail, but I have to go do laundry.

"Square One, Death and Rebirth later. Laundry first."

It's all about priorities ;) Let me know if it's a good read - Lord knows, I need all the help I can get.
Yeah...laundry before blogging! There is only so long you can go without doing laundry. Fortunately in my case it is several weeks :)

I recommend the book. It is easy to read.
I'm a help-self junkie. I figured even though I am learning from my mistakes (or at least making mistakes that have learning potential) it would be good to have a few of these books read and absorbed.

At the least, if it cannot be avoided, I might understand the lesson a lot quicker.
