Book Category: Self-Help
Absolutely well written like a story engaging you through every page. Reframe the Day by Adam M. Lowenstein is amazing. He is a storyteller and is able to pass his knowledge onto you in an easily digestible format. ⠀
There is so much to say about this book but I’ll keep it precise and tell you right away that it’s a must-read for everyone! Why? Because it can help you to find balance in your life. The closest book I could compare this to is a mix between Deep Work by Cal Newport and Stillness is the Key by Ryan Holiday.
The best part is the takeaways are immediately applicable. It’s the best book on this topic I’ve read this year.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from Reframe the Day by Adam:⠀
📘Life is not a to-do list. Or at least it shouldn’t be. But if we’re honest, most of the time most of us are going to treat it like one. Most of us are going to determine how we budget most of our time using to-do lists. So we might as well put things we care about on those lists, too– not just the stuff we think we have to do before we get to what really matters to us.⠀
📕Resisting our obsession with busyness and productivity requires the acknowledgment of three truths. First, many of us are addicted to busyness. Second, busyness is not a useful proxy for productivity. And, third, productivity–as in, producing more–is a tool for life, not the purpose for life. It’s a means to achieving your goal, not the goal itself.⠀
📘It’s illogical and extreme to think that you can consume all the best content out there in any format…rather than trying to consume more you can try to consume more deeply. Rather than trying to add more books and more movies to your to-be-read list and to be watched list, you can make your days more fulfilled by just reading or just watching one.
You will be able to reframe your day to the fullest after reading this book.
