Change Or Die

During my 6 day relaxing stay in the hospital after the birth of my son I listened to lots of BBC pod casts, read a lot of Smithsonian magazines and listened to one fantastic audio book called Change Or Die.

Full of compelling stories the book illustrates that the biggest hurdles facing organizations and people is avoiding change. Among the examples: simple lifestyle changes that would save lives of heart patients, innovative ways of reforming criminals and of course our own personal beliefs and ideals that we find very hard to part with.

I left the hospital not only a mother but also with a new perspective on what I need to change in my life to reach the goals I have set for myself and to be a better role model to my son.

The book works as an excellent catalyst; even if your changes aren't earth moving you will enjoy the read.
