Essential Reading
Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions - Russell Brand

Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions by Russell Brand is the 4th book of his that I've read and possibly the one that's hit the closest to home. This book outlines the 12 Step Program from Russell's perspective with personal accounts from each step of his journey towards recovery. It is an excellent book for those struggling with addiction (of any kind) or those who have witnessed that struggle in others.

 

The emphasis made throughout the book is that you must

  • seek a Higher Power
  • attend meetings to have a community of help
  • work the program every single day
  • seek help at times when stressed or apt to relapse from a mentor who has worked the program

 

These excellent quotes from the book do a far better job of recommending it than anything I could say:

But in your life you've faced obstacles, inner and outer, that have prevented you from becoming the person you were 'meant to be' or 'are capable of being' and that is what we are going to recover. That's why we call this process Recovery, we recover the 'you' that you were meant to be. - pg 42

This program helps me to change my perspective when what I would do unabated is justify my perspective staying the same - 'if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got', if you want change, you have to change. You have to make amends. - pg 133

...'you can't think your way into acting better but you can act your way into thinking better.' - pg 160

The literature upon which these movements are founded describe it not as a 'cure' but as a 'daily reprieve'; the disease, the condition, is still there, you will feel it move through you, in fear and rage and irritation, beckoning you back into previous behavior - pg 212 

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Recovery. If you or anyone you love has ever struggled through addiction and the subsequent difficulties on the long road towards recovery then this is essential reading. 10/10 highly recommend

In today’s digital world, creating brand awareness is not that difficult. Through blogging, paid ads, SEO marketing, website creation, etc. you can build a brand. However, don’t mistake that as a reputation. You may take your business to every customer but making them rely on it is the challenge. That is where the process of building a reputation starts. It doesn’t happen in a single day.

 

 

 

 

Brand reputation is an integral part of brand success. You need to make your audience believe in what you offer to win their loyalty.

Setting aside until in a short story mood...
Were- - Anneliese Belmond,Eliora Smith,Sarah Brand,Faith Hunter,Mike Barretta,April Steenburgh,Susan Jett,Phyllis Ames-Bey,Gini Koch,Seanan McGuire,Elizabeth Sarah Kite,Jean Marie Ward,Danielle Ackley-McPhail,Joshua Palmatier,Patricia Bray,Katharine Kerr,David B.

I'll eventually pick this anthology back up because some favorite authors participated.

 

I'm either not in the mood for it or the stories are rather bland/meh.

 

I know myself.  If I rush ahead to read favorite authors' entries, I won't pick it back up nor finish reading it.
