Learned about this interesting book – very promising to read / list:

First chapter: “It’s all invented”.

Standard social and business practices are built on certain assumptions— shared understandings that have evolved from older beliefs and conditions.

And while circumstances may have changed since the start of these practices, their continued use tends to reconfirm the old beliefs.

For this reason our daily practices feel right and true to us, regardless of whether they have evolved to keep up with the pace of change.

In just such a way a business culture arises and perpetuates itself, perhaps long after its usefulness has passed.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
