The One Thing, by Gary Keller. I don’t read a lot of ‘business’ books, but this one was recommend so much that I got it. Although the target audience is certainly business or work-related, the principles discussed can apply to all of life. The key question Gary Keller introduces and discusses can make a world of difference in anyone’s life. “What is the best thing I can do so that…” The ‘so that’ is where the magic is.
I found The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg fascinating and encouraging. I listened to it on Audible first. But there was so much I wanted to read over again that I bought the paperback also! Although the book contains a lot of information on brain research, the author weaves that in with stories so effectively it never feels heavy or academic. If you have habits you want to change – and don’t we all? – this book is a must-read.
The Happiness Project, by Gretchen Rubin, has been around for a while, but it is still worth your time. I love the way Gretchen Rubin shares research on happiness along with her own experiences pursuing happiness. She admits at the beginning that her life was good to start with. She just felt like it was missing a spark. So she embarked on a one-year project of working on being happier. I’ve read the book twice, so you know it’s good!
The 12 Week Year, by Brian P. Moran & Michael Lennington, is focused on setting and achieving goals in both business and personal life. The premise is that instead of setting annual goals we should all set 12-week goals. The shorter time frame adds a sense of urgency to complete your goals and so you accomplish more in a year – by having four 12-week ‘years – than you normally would. There’s a lot of guidance included about how to make this work, which is one of the things I loved about the book.
