My One Year (re) Reading Plan
If you are anything like me, you are a voracious reader and consume books like Dove dark chocolates. In fact, in 2016, I read over 100 books for business and pleasure.
When I am reading, particularly with business books, I am scanning for specific information but these books are JAM-PACKED with insights and resources of those who have already gone before me and I don’t always pick these gems up the first time around.
That’s why this year, in accordance with my personal “do less, better.” theme, I am re-reading these amazingly powerful books that I read last year to help keep me focused until I master the habits, tips, mindsets and concepts put forth by these amazing experts.
It’s one thing to consume information; it a totally different ballgame to apply it practically.
Hands down. My favorite business book to help entrepreneurs get traction FAST. This book really has helped me produce powerful results not only my business, but in my client’s businesses. Surprisingly simple in concept, it’s requires constant revisitation to acquire mastery. Snag this quick read to start getting serious results in your business.
The moment you became an entrepreneur, you became the CEO of your business whether you knew it or not. This only becomes more evident as you scale and expand and start grow a team. Entreleadership is the book for every entrepreneur growing a team and learning to step into the mindset and shoes of a CEO.
Want to make $10,000? Why not add an extra 0 and make it $100,000. That’s the case that Grant makes in this book The 10x Rule. The case is so good in fact that Google uses the model when setting goals for their company.
So if you wanting to increase your impact and income, READ THIS BOOK.
Want a more passive business? Then you need to start thinking in terms of systems and automations when it comes to your business workflows.
Clock work gives practical steps and insights to set your business up to eventually run itself. Dreamy? I know. That’s why it’s a re-read.
If there is anyone who lights a fire in my focus, it’s Grant. If you are serious about getting to the top of your industry, you’ve got to be obsessed. Listen to Grant to learn about what it really takes and inspired to get serious.
My beloved StrengthsFinder 2.0 book is well worn and due for another re-read. I crack it open frequently when working with clients but getting my hands around it again is always a joy as I believe any personal should ultimately be based upon a persons personal strengths.
For those of us who like dense, heavily researched, fact-based insights to discovering what ACTUALLY makes a company great and not just good, this is the book for you. This book took me the longest to complete but it’s a solid read and should be read at least ONCE if you are an entrepreneur with dreams of being GREAT!
The title spells it out. In an industry that is quick to capitalize and spin wild marketing claims out of mediocre results, this book helps keep entrepreneurs grounded in things that really matter, like honesty over deception, transparency over secrecy, authenticity over hype, and ultimately, people over profit
Keeping in the same tone and spirit as the ONE THING, Greg goes into deeper philosophy and research as to WHY this works and the mental journey behind becoming an essentialist whereas the ONE THING helps you get started practically implementing these concepts quickly! BOTH are excellent, quick reads.
