I love having a ton of books to read at a time. One little “productivity tip” I’ve found helpful for me is to have 1-2 books that are non-fiction/work books and then a fun book, read a chapter in each and then repeat that for as many books as I have. Here’s my current list!
What Motivates Me: Put Your Passions to Work – Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton – I’m only a chapter in, but I love the topic so far. It talks about what gets you really jazzed about work. So good.
Unlocking Potential – Michael Simpson – This is a great book on coaching and has been making my heart sing so far! I’ve realized recently I have coaching tendencies that I never verbalized before. Boy do I love helping people!
Insurgent – Veronica Roth – This is one of my fun books. I like to reread some books before I see the movie and young adult trilogies are at the top of that list.
Reading Like A Writer – Francine Prose – This has been a really helpful book so far. It’s been great to “get permission” to read more. 🙂
Remote: Office Note Required – Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson – I love the guys over at Basecamp! This is a great read, much like Rework. I love the simplicity of reading and “duh” moments I get from their books. This one has been great for learning about working remotely as our society moves more and more towards that.
Youtility: Why Smart Marketing Is About Help Not Hype – Jay Baer – I randomly heard a webinar by Jay and was just blown away by what he had to say. Basically, his message is that by giving away a ton of information and being helpful without expecting something in return, you are actually becoming more desirable as a business. Love his message!
What about you, what’s in your current stack of books?
p.s. I’ve already added a few more to this stack! Heh heh…
