Thinking Thursday: An Introduction

I felt this would be a better way to serve you, my readers. Instead of solely a book review, I’ll put down the things I’ve learned, the books I’m currently reading, any documentaries I think might be worth your while, and anything else I can think of. I’ll also give an overview of the courses I have completed so you can check them out or at least make a mental note of them, should you ever become interested in learning these things too!

Books:

The Shariyat Ki Sugmad, Paul Twitchell

The Transformer, Kris Gethin

Turn your passion into a thriving business, Gundi Gabrielle

Andersonville: A story of rebel military prisons, John McElroy

The Orion Plague, David Vandyke

Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe

The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D. Wattles

The Spiritual Exercises of ECK, Harold Klemp

Classes:

Public Policy, Hillsdale College

How to write a nonfiction book fast without writer’s block, Udemy

Learning how to Learn, Coursera

The class I recently completed was the Science of Well-being, offered by Yale University on Coursera. All of the Coursera courses are free unless you want a certificate. If you pursue a certificate, it will typically run you about 45.00 and you’ll have to complete some written assignments and do some peer review work. I really don’t want or need a certificate, so I bypass all of this to gather the knowledge. One really cool thing about these courses is all of the references links, Ted Talks, and books they recommend. This is priceless! Anyways, the course shows you how most people pursue the wrong things to find happiness. It then begins providing you with the things that truly give us happiness, peace, and contentment. The course wraps up by providing you with all of the strategies, supported by the research, that will garner wellness in your life. This course has some really surprising information. I won’t spoil this for anyone. If you want to take the course I highly recommend it. Here’s the link to find it: https://www.coursera.org/learn/the-science-of-well-being/home/welcome
