Over the last several months, I have discussed several wonderful books. Find my posts about books here. It can be hard to keep track of them all, so I thought I would offer my picks for various needs.
BTW: I’ve linked to lots of books here, so just in case you’re wondering, NO, I am not an Amazon affiliate. I just love business books! Buy them at your favoriate place, I’ve linked to Amazon for convenience.
Here´s the New Year´s 1-2 Punch:
Want to kick off the new year with a bang? Try these book combos:
1. You know what you want to do, you just need to get going.
Buy Art of the Start and Getting Things Done
2. You want to explore and discover how to live your life with greater purpose and then get on with it.
Buy The Highest Goal (or Claiming Your Place at the Fire if you are approaching retirement, or both!) and Getting Things Done. (Also Art of the Start if you struggle with getting going)
3. You are in major discovery mode – you need a new, fresh direction.
Buy The Highest Goal, Claiming Your Place at the Fire, The 8th Habit, then work with Curt Rosengren to further explore what will light you up and how to make a career you will love.
4. You want to explore your purpose and enjoy today’s work and life more fully.
Buy The Highest Goal and Good Business (and Art of the Start if you have a project or initiative to work on).
