What: These books are written by speakers from the Do Lectures whose ideas have inspired others to go and Do. Positive change in book form – whether it’s the mastery of a new skill or craft, a simple mindshift, or a shot of inspiration to help you get started.
How: Each book is fairly short, about 100 pages, because it focuses on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical guides that make it easier to Do stuff.
Who: Machines are designed to run constantly; people aren’t. Our coping mechanisms are meditation apps, weekend breaks and annual holidays, but things soon revert. To prosper, we need a more sustainable approach — an ability to pause.
Do Pause looks at the importance of this subtle yet powerful idea to communication, creativity, relationships — as well as our wellbeing and sanity. With practical tools to help you create new habits or make more significant lifestyle choices, you’ll discover ways to:
- Reset and regenerate
- Deepen your thinking and experiences
- Take back control of your time
- Reconnect with other people — and yourself
Why: From taking a breath to taking a sabbatical, a pause can be many things. And the good news is, even just a small pause every now and again can make a real and lasting difference.
