Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And That Anyone Can Do by Henry CloudThis book was amazing. Amazing it how it revealed patterns, strengths, and weaknesses. Showing me clearly areas of my life I need to work and apply myself on as well as showing me how I can change and heal. There were so many helpful examples throughout the book that in one way or another applied to me. I especially got a lot out of the chapter entitled What is Adulthood?
I grew up never being allowed to disagree, it wasnt safe to do so. I realize now that I have struggled with the inordinate need for approval/fear of disapproval, guilt, feeling inferior, need for permission for everything, and also have lived in a world of legalism, much of it self inflicted. In many ways, I did not become an adult because I was not treated as an adult and I did not set good boundaries for myself to deal with that.
My mom had a book by Dr. Cloud (Boundaries in Marriage)before that I had skimmed through before and thought it would be great for my parents. (Unfortunately, I dont think they made it to the next step.) So I was somewhat familiar with his work. Even if you dont think you are struggling with any particular area, this book would still be good to go through. Dr. Cloud takes the reader through 4 steps/tasks of becoming mature image bearers of God.

Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose
The visionary CEO of Zappos explains how an emphasis on corporate culture can lead to unprecedented success. Make customer service the entire company, not just a department. Focus on company culture as the 1 priority. Apply research from the science of happiness to running a business. Help employees grow both personally and professionally.
It details his life as an entrepreneur , with emphasis on the founding of LinkExchange and Zappos. Due to this grueling schedule, he would often write for 20 to 24 hours at a time, sleep for four hours or less, and then resume working. And alcohol. And then coffee and alcohol. We actually put coffee beans in a vodka bottle. It is written in narrative form and includes short page entries from Hsieh's friends and employees.
