Book Club: Introvert Power

Quiet people have the loudest minds. – Stephen Hawking

Reading this book felt like reading about myself. A few years ago I read the book Quiet, and this one written by Laurie Helgoe was the perfect follow-up. As a psychologist and introvert herself, Laurie unveils the power of introversion and helps others to nurture their naturally inward-oriented life. The first part of the book outlines introversion, the types of introverts, and the inherent power that lies within each introvert. The second part of the book focused heavy on practical tips for being a happy and healthy introvert in an extroverted society without compromising an introvert’s nature and inner power.

The great omission in American life is solitude…which is the incubator of the spirit. – Marya Mannes

Takeaways

  • Solitude is not lack.
  • We are not just social animals, we are solitary animals as well.
  • We tend to view alone time either as a problem to be overcome or a luxury we cannot afford – not as a staple we all need.
  • For an introvert especially, movement away from the group allows access to a more independent, questioning, and honest voice – a voice that could make all the difference.
  • The ability to be alone is one of the most important signs of maturity in emotional development.
  • Solitude is often unpleasent…at first.
  • Introverts can appear closed to off to society with their solitary pursuits, but rather are opening up new frontiers of their imagination.

Would you consider yourself and introvert? How do you nurture your own inner life? I tend to do this by reading books, cleaning, and walking my dogs. I never thought I’d actually look forward to cleaning my own home, but age does funny things to you.

  • Feelings are not performance feedback. Be kind to yourself when learning something new, when putting yourself out there, and doing something unfamiliar. It can be scary. But that’s how things change, how we grow.
  • So yesterday was weird … I thought it was my satellite internet but apparently Facebook and Instagram were down.

This is just another reminder that you don’t own the content you create. Having a website is the *only* slice of internet you 100% own. No algorithms hiding content and no companies having rights over the content you publish. Make sure you set your business up for success without having to rely 100% on social media.

  • Blizzard conditions is the perfect weather to deploy a website. Say a prayer for my satellite internet 🙏💻☕️ #fingerscrossed #blizzardconditions #snowday

  • Deciding to get a new website design can be daunting, especially if you feel like you have no idea how to go about it!  Lately I’ve been working on re-writing my process and how I work so that my clients have an even clearer roadmap of how their new web design will come to life. It’s been fun to write this all out and receive good feedback on it already! Can’t wait to share it implement it more in the future.
