"Flow. Psicologia dell’esperienza ottimale"

by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi

People achieve maximum happiness when they are in a state of "flow", that is, complete concentration and absorption in an activity.
In this book, Mihály Csíkszentmihályi explains this important concept and tells how, with awareness and the right knowledge, the optimal experience can be sought and controlled until it becomes a tool for freeing resources that allow you to give your best.

If we associate a powerful purpose with our existence, the author argues, then we reach the highest state of happiness we can experience.

"The Infinite Game"

by Simon Sinek

Have you ever heard of "infinite games" and the relative difference with "finite games"?
In this book, Simon Sinek explains the theory of infinite games and claims that in infinite games, such as business, politics or life, the players and the rules are changeable and there is no clear goal unlike what happens in finished games.
From this we can see one of the greatest difficulties that most organizations face, which is that those who lead them play an infinite game with a finite mindset.
Instead, what the author proposes is to adopt a new perspective that focuses on the infinite game and therefore is innovative, strong, full of stimuli and motivations.
