I have a mentor that I run with on a regular basis who manages to do a ton of reading. I’ve been wanting to really get started. When I asked him how he does it- he suggested I grab a Kindle and read before bedtime. It helps clear the mind of the day- and it also leaves you sleepy. It’s actually one of the best purchases I’ve made in some time.
I think as part of this blog- I’m going to start doing book recommendations on books that I’ve read as they pertain to business and my own personal growth. Some of them have been quite profound in the way that I look at things- and how I operate.
There is a group of Biographies that really have made me really look at who I am and my objective in life. I’ll list a few in the order I read them. Also- I’m going to try and actually write more on books as I’m reading them- instead of months after the fact.
Steve Jobs is one of my favorite sociopathic nutjobs. No notion of anything other than his vision. I really recommend grabbing this book if you want to get fired up about being obsessive about design. I also encourage you to think about the result of his drive.
This is probably one of my favorite people to watch in the news- Elon Musk is a machine. This book follows him. I loved it- it really is inspirational and makes you think about what your passions mean for the world around you.
If Elon keeps up with his vision- he’ll have really made a name for himself and the world. I recommend this book for anyone really trying to find their way. Elon dreamed big- and pushes hard. What do you want to do- and are you willing to go for it?
Warren Buffet is probably one of my greatest heroes. I have heard his named mentioned over the years- but he is kind of boring. That is- he was until I read this book. The title comes from the idea that a little investment over time grows.
Warren Buffet takes his time making money by making sound decisions. He uses the principles laid out by HIS hero Benjamin Graham in the book The Intelligent Investor. You get to watch as his entrepreneurial spirit combined with his eye on the prize has made in one of the richest men in the world. I highly recommend this book!
Ok- that’s it for now. If you want any of these book- press on the pictures- and it will get you to the amazon page for it where you an buy it! 😀 Enjoy!
