It seems like readers are in a practical mood this month with books covering everything from creating to-do lists to mental training. There are some new additions this month which look fascinating, including Factfulness by Hans Rosling and Secrets of Six-Figure Women by Barbara Stanny. We’ll ensure we add those to our review list.
Speaking of reviews, this month’s Editor’s Choice is Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown. It’s a powerful book, but we’d recommend you think carefully about the right time to read it, in order to get the most from it. You can read our review here.
Factfulness by Hans Rosling
We love the sound of this book. Factfulnessreveals the top ten instincts that distort our perceptions of the world. The book suggests that our world is actually in a much better state than we may otherwise believe. A dose of positivity wouldn’t hurt right now. Oh, and Bill Gates recommends it.
A regular in our top ten, Ray Dalio shares the unconventional principles he has developed through years of experience to generate amazing results in both business and everyday life, which any individual or business can adopt to help achieve their own goals.
We do love a good to-do list! New to the list this month, To-do List Formula promises to revolutionise how we set our short- and long-term goals in order to effectively manage our responsibilities and workload. If you try it, get in touch and let us know what you think.
This book is on our list for the second month in a row, and it’s clear why. The Coaching Habit combines research in behavioural economics and neuroscience together with training tools to turn practical advice into practised habits. A must-read for those looking to enhance their leadership skills!
With today’s world becoming increasingly ‘perfect’ and ‘airbrushed’, this book is a welcome reminder about our own worth, and how to embrace our imperfections in modern-day achievement culture. If you’ve been giving yourself a hard time lately, this may be the book for you.
You’ll be making notes and sticking inspirational quotes on your mirror in no time once you begin reading this book! Secrets of Six-Figure Women provides an abundance of interviews and stories to inspire women everywhere to ask for those six-figure sums.
Appearing on our list for a second time, The Art of Mental Training teaches an important lesson in how everyone can learn from both setbacks and triumphs in order to develop our peak performance. It points out underlying mental strategies that we can apply to create success through focused choice rather than chance.
This book has amassed evangelists far and wide. If you are looking for ways to make more time in your day (even if you’re not a morning person) you may want to consider this one. You can find our review here.
7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a best-selling book that we consistently find in our top ten list. It’s a classic, for good reason. If you are looking for support in making long-lasting change in your life, it’s worth a read.
We’ve tackled embracing our imperfections, so now let’s look at our strengths! All too often, we devote our time to working on our shortcomings as opposed to developing our strengths. This book is packed full of strategies to use in order to identify and apply your strengths in all areas of life.
