Alain de Botton

.From love to travel to architecture, de Botton's school of thought on finding happiness and well-being can apply to just about anyone. His TED Talk's are also easy and funny to listen to.


Leadership Advice

While this advice may not be for everyone, for those like me who purposely abstain from many forms of social media, I recommend automating email newsletter feeds from your favorite, trusted sources. The type is personal and endless; so many publications offer this! I love Crain's Morning 10 for local NY government and business news during my commute, and the Atlantic's CityLab at lunch time. With so much information at our fingertips and being pushed every nanosecond, it can quickly become distracting and overwhelming. Opting for a curated set of articles from your preferred sources helps to cut through the bulk and focus on the most interesting and worthwhile stories


Milan Kundera

I enjoy reading Kundera when looking for something beyond the typical novel. Whether a short book (like "Slowness") or a longer one ("Unbearable Lightness of Being" or "Book of Laughter and Forgetting"), he marries a storytelling mix of sensational realism and abstract surrealism with deep philosophical themes like presence and memory to mull over and apply in everyday life.
