Spring Refresh Resources: What We're Reading to Cultivate Our Goals

Spring Refresh Resources: What We're Reading to Cultivate Our Goals

by: Emily Thomas

Raise your hand if you've gotten a dose of fresh perspective these last few weeks.

The first PowerSheets® Goal Refresh couldn't come at a better time, could it? Whether you're pivoting your goals in light of COVID-19 or digging deeper than you ever thought was possible with extra time on your hands, we've heard from so many of you that this purposeful pause in your PowerSheets is a welcome opportunity to assess what's working (and what's not), set new mini-goals, and adjust your focus for the three months to come.

There's a lot to look forward to* as we dive into the Refresh together, but today, we wanted to share with you a few books on our team's collective nightstand. From non-fiction that's helping move our goals forward to light-hearted fiction helping us rest at the end of the day, here are a few books we're loving right now—and we'd love to hear yours!

* PSST! You asked, and we're delivering! Two new products are available in the shop for ONE WEEK ONLY (Monday, March 30—Sunday, April 5)!! It's so clear that they were made to help you live out what matters in this season, and we can't wait to get them in your hands.
