In her late 20s, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy - only keeping her from meeting her goals - she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. The Year of Less documents Cait's life for 12 months during which she bought only consumables.

Je ne pouvais plus m’arrêter de l’écouter après l’avoir commencé! La voix de Cate est vraiment apaisante et elle a une façon très simple et captivante de raconter son histoire. Elle sait nous donner envie de nous donner des beaux défis à nous-mêmes. Elle est vraiment une belle source d’inspiration et m’encourage beaucoup à rembourser mes dettes et à devenir une consommatrice en pleine conscience! « A mindful customer ».

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

J’ai vraiment compris et appris plein de choses utiles et inspirantes en écoutant ce livre audio! La voix de la narratrice est tellement apaisante en plus! Ce livre porte vraiment bien son titre et j’ai réussi à laisser aller plein d’objets et de vêtements, auxquels je restais accrochée depuis des années, en pensant qu’un jour j’allais le regretter si je m’en débarrassais. Et bien c’est tout le contraire, je me sens de plus en plus en contrôle de mes décisions et je respire mieux sans ces vêtements et objets! Mon espace reprend vie! Bref, je recommande chaudement ce magnifique livre. Marie Kondo est une femme très inspirante!

It’s not the work that’s so hard - it’s the people. The micromanaging control freak. The boss who takes credit for everything. The coworker who regularly strolls in late and takes leisurely breaks.There’s no escaping problematic personalities. And there’s no point fighting or letting tensions simmer. Instead, learn to build positive, productive relationships with everyone in your workplace - and put your career on an unstoppable upward trajectory.

C’est un bon livre pratique, j’ai appris plein de choses intéressantes sur les différents types de boss et comment mieux communiquer avec eux. J’ai aussi appris de bonnes techniques de résolution de conflits. Bref, c’est un bon livre pour apprendre des outils de communication. Par contre, je dois dire que j’avais parfois l’impression que les exemples donnés étaient un peu trop beaux pour être vrais.... dans la réalité malheureusement, j’ai l’impression que certains conflits sont insolvables et qu’avec certaines personnes, il vaut mieux prendre ses distances tout simplement.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

J’ai adoré écouter ce livre! J’ai fait plusieurs prises de conscience intéressantes. Je vais le réécouter dans quelques mois pour me ré-enligner! J’ai trouvé l’écoute très captivante aussi, l’auteur donne plein d’exemples pertinents pour illustrer ses propos. Je me sens plus relax après cette écoute et j’essaie de choisir plus librement ce qui mérite mon attention et mon énergie. Je le recommande à qui veut travailler son lâcher prise!
