I bought a whole load of non-fiction books on how to change your life. The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, The Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss. In the days after, I binge-read them all, scribbling notes in my journals along the way. I started listening to audiobooks and podcasts on my commute, and my mindset began to change. I could see a different future.
