Reset Your Brain's Operating System

About the Book

Thinking about switching career or starting your own business?

Perhaps you need help beating procrastination or turning an idea into reality?

After programmers have released software out into the wild they usually discover problems with their code. They'll then release patches, designed to fix the bug in question without compromising the integrity of what's already in place. All the user has to do is click an 'Update' button and the issue is fixed.

What if you could upgrade your personal operating system in the same way?

From his experiences of depression to running short experiments in life hacking, James Greig explores ways to break out of your comfort bubble into uncharted territory.

If you need help making stuff happen, this is the book for you.

James Greig

Born in London, educated as a teenager in Edinburgh and then at the Glasgow School of Art, James Greig returned to the capital in 2008 to pursue his career in design (and writing... as it turned out).

After falling out of love with being a graphic designer, he started two blogs, one about cycling culture and the other about the (often painful) journey he was taking to rebuild his life.
