The 9 Best Books for Meaningful Change

Yes, its that time again: New Year's is almost upon us. Regardless of where you stand on New Year's resolutions, the new calendar can serve as a helpful reminder about the only true constant in all of our lives: change.
Like it or not, we are all always changing and adapting to circumstances as time rolls on. The positive thing about change is that with some effort we can help direct some (though not all) of the change in our lives as opposed to being victimized by it.
This is not just a sound bite. As a psychologist, I can tell you that real change ultimately comes from within. It is a choice. A decision -- a commitment -- filled with fury, if not sound, signifying everything.

Change is good for your brain and happens to our students in ways we don't often even perceive. It also happens to us both personally and professionally.
I have found the majority of these books useful to cope with change in its many forms over the last two decades in particular. Number 2 is one of my personal bibles and number 3 is my most recent purchase. I haven't read number one but Sir Ken Robinson is extraordinary (and referenced on this blog a few times!).

Even if you don't think you are experiencing change - you are.
Check these out (that will also be good for your brain!)
