What I'm reading this week

I am a compulsive reader (yes, I will read cereal boxes if nothing else is available) and lately I have become the kind of reader who has several books on the go at once. This week, my reading includes,

The Wisdom of Crowds
by James Surowiecki

The Mind & The Brain
by Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begley

The Wisdom of Milton Erickson
by Ronald A. Havens

The current issue of Fast Company magazine

and

Man's Search for Meaning
by Viktor Frankl

I recommend all of these as complementary explorations of how what we believe changes what we think and how what we think changes who we are in the world.

Here is a quote from Frankl:
"Man's search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life. . . This meaning is unique and specific in that it must and can be fulfilled by him alone; only then does it achieve a significance which will satisfy his own will to meaning."

How will your day change when you look at just one person and decide to notice how that person is living his or her unique search for the meaning only he or she can bring into the world?
