5.0 su 5 stelle All about understanding the perils of pursuing a life of perfection 3 febbraio 2016
Di Brian Johnson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
“Perfectionism and optimalism are not distinct ways of being, an either-or choice, but rather they coexist in each person. And while we can move from perfectionism toward optimalism, we never fully leave perfectionism behind and never fully reach optimalism ahead. The optimalism ideal is not a distant shore to be reached but a distant star that guides us and can never be reached. As Carl Rogers pointed out, ‘The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.”

~ Tal Ben-Shahar from The Pursuit of Perfect

Tal Ben-Shahar is quickly becoming my favorite author/teacher.

In fact, he might already be there. :)

As a former Harvard professor who taught THE most popular class in Harvard’s history (on Positive Psychology), he’s an incredible blend of brilliant thinker, passionate teacher, scientific realist and get-out-and-rock-it-dreamer. LOVE. It.

His first book, Happier, provides us with an inspiring snapshot on the science of happiness packed with wisdom and exercises we can immediately apply to our lives.

This book is all about understanding the perils of pursuing a life of perfection and offers an empowering alternative: the way of the “Optimalist.”

It’s one of those books that’s an absolute joy to read and a challenge to write a Note on because the book is basically one unending string of *really* Great Ideas.

Here are a handful of my favorites Big Ideas:

1. Perfectionism - vs. Optimalism.
2. Fault Finders - vs. Benefit finders.
3. Time to Fail More? - Seriously. Get on that! :)
4. Active Acceptance - & Choices and actions.
5. Appreciate - Two meanings.

So, let’s remember the Platinum Rule as we go out and rock our greatest Optimalist lives: “Do not do unto yourself what you would not do unto others.”

More goodness— including PhilosophersNotes on 300+ books in our ​*OPTIMIZE*​ membership program. Find out more at brianjohnson . me.

Tal has an incredibly engaging writing style. He articulates the complex intricacies of perfectionism in simple, easy to digest chunks. This makes it very easy to identify and relate to the principles and experiences that he writes about. While I haven't completed many of the exercises/meditations from the book, as I'm not completely finished reading it, it has already brought me great peace knowing that I am not alone. As a struggling perfectionist, it has given me great hope that I can change, become human again, and feel and accept the full range of human emotion after being a perfectionist for so many years. This book is one of very few books that I would recommend in recognition of, and recovery from perfectionism.

This book made me realize that I have always been a perfectionist and that it is one of the reasons I have always suffer of depression... Now that I understand more about this, and that we can and should be optimalists, Im sure I can learn to live more happily and punishing myself less and less after a mistake or failure. Great book. Highly recommend it !!!!

5.0 su 5 stelle A unique research in positive psychology 13 aprile 2009
Di Ghassan Qutob - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I think the title of the book could be misleading for some people, as many wouldn't label themselves as perfectionists , Tal Ben Shahar proves in his theory that we all have struggles in perfectionism in one field of life or another which is very true to me. I prefer to call this book: The book of change, in which the author takes us into a journey of self reflections, self insights & subsequently a chance for a meaningful change only through the HARD WORK of sincere implementations of the exercises.
His unique writing style mingles philosophy & the best of academic research in cognitive psychology all together in a persuasive presentation. The exercises are persuasive enough because they all stand on the solid ground of empirical evidence.
What took me in awe were the closing 10 meditations, or better to call them the 10 wisdoms .
In conclusion, a unique work indeed, bringing a deeper and more mature level, for a more happier life.
