The world of self-help or self-improvement books is a league of its own. Whether you want guidance on an area of life that you would like to improve on or are simply looking for suggestions from those who have been there and done that, picking a self-help book can become cumbersome since you can easily search for suggestions on Google/Quora/YouTube etc. These books can cater to a range of interests—money, productivity, people skills, motivation, mindfulness, creativity, spirituality etc. Any book that claims to help you in improving or managing it better can be termed as a self-help book.

I have noticed people who usually do not read fiction books somehow like to dip their toes in reading a good self-help book. But while picking such a book, there are certain things that I would like to share so you don’t end up feeling that the recommendations put down by the author are all in the air.

However, I feel a lot more in control now—I have learned many things along the way and here I am, to share with you my ten tips for managing WFH effectively.

I love reading books (no surprises there) but reading many books at the same time was not a method that I had adopted previously. However, I am open to experimenting and understanding what my style of reading is and here are my top tips to know before you jump into reading more than one book. ¡Ahí vamos!

Top Ten Resolutions for 2020

A month into 2020 and I finally have a decent checklist of goals for this year. Call it my belated yearly resolutions, but I feel motivated when I have things to look forward to and achieve (plus the excitement to tick things off from a checklist is pure joy!). I like to keep my goals flexible—adding more things as the year progresses and crossing off the ones I manage to complete. Like any list of goals, we tend to get overwhelmed if we add too many. So, I have set goals that are doable, but still challenging and exciting. Here are my top ten goals for 2020. (In no particular order of importance.)
