A list of the best books I’ve read in 2018 that are “non-business”. Covering a collection of spirituality, wisdom, philosophy, and psychology topics.
I cannot always read all of Tin’s books but I surely try to skim over most of them and dive into selected few. This year, I’ve also decided to share my list. But unlike Tin’s it will be just a list, do not expect rankings, tables, and any other sophisticated statistics.
I concentrated on non-business books (if you allow me to use this weird description). Tin’s list of best books of 2018 can be found here.

A while ago, I shared my approach in dealing with a new manager. This time, I am diving deeper into the subject and sharing the steps I took when I realized that my new manager is an introvert.
You have recently changed your role? Or you have recently changed your employer? Or maybe, you just now realized that your new manager is an introvert. Don’t panic! First, there is nothing wrong in being an introvert. Second, I agree that working with introvert is different mostly because we are so used to these images of flamboyant, extrovert bosses. Third, pure introverts are very rare, so maybe you are wrong. And last but not least, there are approaches you can take if you dive deep into the world of introverts.
This article is the logical next step after my article a while ago about approaching a new manager (link here
). After working a few months with my managers I started realizing that they are actually introverts. Continue reading if you are interested in my journey and the way I approached thew new situation.

Starting a new job can be intimidating but also a chance to make the best first impression that will stick with you for your whole career. This article teaches you how to approach a new job and how to prepare for the first day, first week, first month, and beyond.
Last month, I started a new job. While I was on the market for about half a year, I really enjoyed searching for the best opportunity. Just like anything else in my life, as soon as I accepted the offer, I started preparing diligently for my first few days and weeks.
The contemporary employment market is very dynamic. As a result, the dream of the stable job and the stable employer where you could spend your whole life is almost dead. Because of that besides interviewing and selling yourself, you also have to learn the art of the first impression. The first few days in a new role will determine your success or failure in the mid-to-long term.
The purpose of this article is to share my experience and give you tips for your new job and/or role. First of all, the way you approach the situation. Then, the way you prepare for the first day. And finally, the way you execute it.

Are your subconscious mind, emotional mind, and conscious mind out of sync? Is your brain operating on high frequencies without giving you rest? This article will teach you how to restore the harmony using meditation.
The Subconscious Mind is just one of the parts of our brains: 1) the conscious part that controls our thoughts; 2) the emotions part that controls our emotions; 3) the subconscious part that stores all memories, habits, and skills. Accessing that part of the brain is harder than it sounds because both other parts have to work in unison.
This article will combine two of my previous articles (Subconscious Mind – How to Unlock and Use Its Power and How to Learn Meditation and Change Your Mind and Body) and will teach you how to access (and influence) the data stored in your subconscious mind.

Caring is our greatest trait, but modern life exploits it with news, gossip, problems, and clever product placement. This article teaches you how to care more about less, by reviewing and evaluating the important parts of your life where you want to spend your Care tokens.
Humans are caring animals. Most of you will stop and take care of a person who has fallen, or a bird that is trapped, or a puppy that is lost. Care has turned humans from groups of animals into societies. It has given us the power to unite (and separate), to achieve great things (and suffer huge failures). The modern life exploits this trait of ours, to force us into brand-loyalty, consumerism. This also causes more stress in our lives and generally makes us unhappy.
The answer, however, is not only to care less, it is to care more … about less. Review the things in your life you care about and rank and evaluate them. Imagine that you only have 6 care tokens a day. Do you want to spend them on Prince X and Princess M’s wedding news? On the turmoil in Country Z? Or on your family and kids?
