Gil’s List of Best Books 2018 (Non-business )

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.

Tin’s List of Best Books 2018

A list of the best books I’ve read in 2018 that are relevant to the topics in my blog – personal and professional growth, optimization and productivity.

As I said in my 2017 best books post (link here), 2017 was a busy year for me. Now at the end of 2018, this blog is already 2+ years old and I am following up with my top 5 selection for 2018. I continued to read mostly highly recommended books (4.00+ rating on Goodreads) and I achieved a personal best of 30 books read (against a goal of 21 books).

I continued exploring alternative ways to read (buses, trains, airplanes). On weekends, I get up early and read until my wife and kid wake up. And most interestingly, I go really early to work and sit in a coffee shop for about half an hour before I go into the office. I also explored different techniques for reading fast, but in my opinion this defies the purpose of reading. So, I continue to read cover to cover, absorbing the whole content.

In this article, I listed the 5 books that I would recommend out of my year’s selection. If you are interested, this is a link to my Goodreads account (link) where I diligently summarize my reading experience.

Access Your Subconscious Mind Through Meditation

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.

The Best Non-business Books I’ve Read in 2017

The Best Books I’ve Read in 2017

A list of the best books I’ve read in 2017 that are relevant to the topics in my blog – personal and professional growth, optimization and productivity.

2017 was a busy year for me. I started this blog, changed my job, changed the country I live in … and the continent. But most importantly, I kept reading new and exciting books throughout the year. It was not easy, I had to read in buses and trains, at 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM. And I managed to cover all sorts of genres that could help me improve – philosophy, business, self-help, history, biographies. Here, I would like to share with you the best books for this year.

Before that, in 2016, spent a lot of time to setup my Goodreads account (link) and enter all the books I’ve read in the past. And for 2017, I set a personal goal in the platform to read 20 books. Challenges has remained my main motivator throughout my life and now I am finishing book 25 of the year! I know that the number is pathetic compared to other people that read 50+, 100+ and even 200+ books/year, but it is a great achievement for me.

In this article, I list the best 5 books that I would recommend to anyone out of this year’s 25. Here, I will stick to the books relevant to the topics in my blog and I will have a separate post for the most entertaining books that do not fall into this category.
