The art of possibility

The possibilities are endless with The Art of Possibility by Rosamund and Benjamin Zander.

You could read this book as a leadership guide, teacher’s manual, relationship-saver, life-changer or just a collection of feel-good stories. I had fun reading this book and got a lot out of it because the Zanders showed me that any problem can be solved through a change in perspective. Each chapter includes daily practices that can help anyone create a fulfilled life.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

“Rule Number 6 is ‘Don’t take yourself so damn seriously”
It’s all invented anyway, so we might as well invent a story or a framework of meaning that enhances our quality of life and the life of those around us”
“When our attention is primarily directed to how wrong things are, we lose our power to act effectively”
“With our inventive powers, we can be passionately for each other and for the whole living world around us. We need never name a human being as the enemy”
“Define yourself not as a piece, nor as the strategist, but as the board itself, the framework for the game of life around you”
