Welcome to the
Boho Berry Book Club
ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB
The Boho Berry Book Club is a meeting place to gather and talk about a different personal development book each month — and the ways it can make our lives more awesome off the page.
Personal development topics can feel…well, personal, and we often can’t help but fall into the trap of taking ourselves too seriously. This group places a bright filter over those topics to make it all feel a little lighter.
The Boho Berry Book Club is an opportunity to engage with self-help concepts and integrate them into our lives where it feels right, leave what doesn’t with zero guilt, and know that we have the backup and relief of a club of awesome, imperfect people figuring it out along with us.
View each book, each week, each day as just a new experiment you’re conducting in living a happier life, and enjoy!
HOW IT WORKS:
• A book is selected each month (more on this later) and, much like an in-person book club, a meeting is set toward the end of the month for us to talk about it. However, it will be held in our virtual living room — the Boho Berry Book Club Facebook Group.
• During the month, you’re free to read the book at your own pace. We want the book club to feel like a fun, light and inspiring extra in your life, not like homework.
• Monthly book club meetings will take place on the 25th of each month and consist of questions, quotes, and conversation-starters released in separate posts, where discussion about each prompt can take place in the comments section.
• Starting on the 25th of each month you’re also encouraged to write your own posts sharing your thoughts and experiences of reading that month’s book.
• Throughout the month some chat about the book is a given, but to avoid “spoilers” and to support everyone’s individual reading pace, we ask that specific, in-depth talk waits until the end of the month. Think of what you would or would not say to your real-life friends about a book that you were all reading at different speeds! When in doubt, wait to post until the 25th.
• We’ll keep the conversation going before our main chats with weekly prompts to set an intention for your week — relating the book’s material to your mind, body and spirit. We would love for you to share your experiences with that intention throughout the week!
• On the first of each month, a poll will go up in the Boho Berry Book Club Facebook Group with possible selections for the next month’s book. You’ll have 3 days to vote for the book that you’d like us to read next, and then the winner will be announced. This gives everyone plenty of time to get the book before the next month starts.

THIS MONTH’S BOOK:
Eat That Frog! 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less time by Brian Tracy
Who of us hasn’t had something on their to-do list (or task list, in Bullet Journal parlance) that just keeps getting moved or migrated, staring at us through that little bullet point and looming over the rest of our day? Why do we do this…and what are some ways we can stop?
Brian Tracy is here to help us out with his book Eat That Frog! It’s a modern personal development classic that tons of people have credited with helping them clear space in their lives and minds.
So what does frog-eating have to do with time management? Apparently there’s an old saying that if the first thing you do every morning is eat a live frog, then at least you’ll know you’re done with the worst thing you’ll do all day.
I’m gonna give a “hard pass” to eating an actual frog, but that feeling of satisfaction and pride that comes with doing what you need to do…more of that, please. And yet, so many of us (myself included!) walk around with tasks banging against the walls of our mind, casting clouds of guilt and edginess into our peripheries. We know it’s a waste of energy, and yet it can be so hard to tackle on our own.
BUT WE DON’T HAVE TO. Not only does Brian Tracy have plans, suggestions and science for us to apply to our lives, we can do it together in the Boho Berry Book Club! You basically have a group full of accountability buddies at the ready if you join us on Facebook. So what are you waiting for? Eat that frog and hop over to the group!
