Eat That Frog! - Brian Tracy
A good book which emphasises the power of tackling your most important tasks and projects first, and focusing single mindedly on one task or project at a time to achive ultimate success in life. Eat That Frog! is not a long read, but did a good job of emphasising good habits I’ve read about in other books.
ReWork - Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson
I’ve read this book twice now. I love books that offer ‘uncommon sense’ approaches; alternative ways to look at and solve problems. This is one of them. In ReWork, Jason Fried and DHH debunk the common view that you have to grow and get big to be successful. You don’t. You can stay small and build the business you want, the way you want, and ignore the ‘common nonsense’. The thoughts in this book have shown me an alternative blueprint for creating a business. They’re thoughts that I’ll revisit again and again in the future. I highly recommend this book, and many of their blog posts on Signal v. Noise
