The "Now What?" reading list

If you read my last post, you know that I think many of us are going to be faced with reinvention in the next weeks and months. And, many of us are wondering if we’ve got it in us to do it all again. Okay, given the other option—to just give up and melt into a puddle of despair—rebooting, rebuilding, and reinventing our lives seems to be the right choice. Now what?

As an introvert, I start most new or difficult endeavors with research. Of course, I don’t want to get stuck in the paralysis of analysis, but a bit of information or inspiration can’t hurt. Here’s my starting list for books to read in this moment. Feel free to suggest others.


  • Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans – if you want a logical, step-by-step, approach to the next phase of your life.

  • The 50th Law by Robert Green and 50 Cent—if you need to understand how to turn bookish advice into action.

  • Everything is Figureoutable by Marie Forleo—if you want to feel like you’re having a conversation with a motivational coach.

  • Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter by 50 Cent—if you need a push to take those first steps.

  • The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck by Sarah Knight—if you could use a bit of help putting yourself at the top of your own list.
