4 Books to kick off 2017

Looking for some books to start 2017 on the right foot? Here are 4 books to read at the beginning of the year to inspire you to have your best and most intentional year yet!

1. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Hands down one of my favorite books, Big Magic spoke to me on so many levels. Liz Gilbert argues that we shouldn't suffer at the hands of our creative talents but rather participate in them joyfully. One of my big takeaways was that you don't have to show the world everything you create. She also argues that we are ALL creatives and that creativity is not reserved for special people. I love Liz Gilbert and her writing style is warm and friendly!   

2. Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

Written by the creator of Grey's Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes chronicles her year of saying yes to everything, especially the things that scare her. Saying yes and confronting fears led to a truly transformative year. Her writing style is funny and distinctive, this was a truly enjoyable read. 

3. Make it Happen

Goal setter extraordinaire Lara Casey writes about living life on purpose and taking control of how you spend your time and energy. She is focused on intentional goals that help people uncover what matters most in their lives. She is also the creator of Powersheets, a work book style goal setting system. They are currently sold out but you can pre-order them here.

4. 168 Hours by Laura Vanderkam

Ever wonder how some people manage to accomplish so much more in a week than you do? We all have the same amount of time in a week and author Laura Vanderkam challenges you to think differently about the amount of time you have and how you set priorities. The things we fill our days with should be deserving of our time.
