BOOKMARKED is a bi-monthly gathering to explore selected readings that amplifies our imagination and widens our perspectives through discussions.

 
 

OUR BOOK CLUB

The gym’s book club - BOOKMARKED - is running down in bi-monthly intervals. We decide for a book and meet up to discuss it in a 2-2,5 hours session.


The books we select are meant to foster imagination and/or support us with our creative process. Through discussion we widen our perspective and learn new points of view.

The book clubs are moderated by us and designed to trigger inspiring discussions.

 

THE BOOK

Jake Knapp - Make time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day

What if you could step off the hamster wheel and start taking control of your time and attention? As creators of Google Ventures' renowned 'design sprint', Jake and John have helped hundreds of teams solve important problems by changing how they work. Building on the success of these sprints and their experience designing ubiquitous tech products like Gmail and YouTube, they spent years experimenting with their own personal habits and routines, looking for ways to help individuals optimize their energy, focus, and time. Now they've packaged the most effective tactics into a four-step daily framework that anyone can use to systematically design their days.Making time isn't about radically overhauling your lifestyle; it's about making small shifts in your environment to liberate yourself from constant busyness and distraction. Make Time is a must-read for anyone who has ever thought 'if only there were more hours in the day...'
