As summer approaches…I want to share some books that will teach, inspire and get you living life a bit differently!
This will be a 3-part series as there are quite a few books to choose from. Of note, these are non-fiction books that will benefit you most if you are in business for yourself or have a good career going!
I want to start this with a book I read last summer. I think the one I liked the most was by Mel Robbins. Mel is a former lawyer, turned broadcaster, turned life in a mess and then she tells the tale of how a rule she developed helped her “get off” being the way she was being!
She is now a fabulous keynote speaker, teacher, author of The 5 Second Rule and life is more inline as she lives and teaches the 5 Second Rule. I won’t give away the details, but this is valuable book if you want to make changes, but you are prone to procrastination!
I also read another book, which got some looks from strangers, as I rode and read it on the subway in the morning. It is by an award-winning blogger and writer named Mark Mason. It has a bright orange cover with the title on the front in black bold font, called, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F–K.
This book helps if you want to live life more on your terms and be authentic about it. We can get caught up in the drama of it all and the message is basically, not to take it all to heart and to choose what truly matters, because in the end it is the moments that matter and we are all just a split second away from this glorious life being over!
It is well-written, full of stories and anecdotes and in the end, your life will be better for having read this book…
The third book is more hardcore. It is called, Work the System by Sam Carpenter. The book and concepts discussed in it will help you if you are in the business industry. It aids in helping you get better at running your business, so your business does not run you!
Sam was going through a crisis in his business, where the money was tight, he couldn’t meet payroll, and his life, marriage and health were being compromised. During an all-nighter at work, he had an epiphany!
He realized that how he ran his business was out of whack! He needed to develop systems to help run his business and life more systematically!
The concepts, methodology and the freebies you can get on the book’s website make this read well worth it. It will help you think differently about how you run your business or approach your work!
The Japanese call it “CANI”! Constant and Never-Ending Improvement!
Sam now works less and makes more in his business as a result of “Working the System”.
Next week, I will have three more books to share with you. I promise you this: these books will have a positive impact on how you live, work and be!
