“If you read more, you learn more and if you learn more, you achieve more.”
Leadership & Self Deception
by The Arbinger Institute
“The bigger problem was that I couldn’t see that I was the one who had a problem.”
Self-deception is like this. It blinds us to the true causes of problems.
We unknowingly trap ourselves in a “box” of endless self-justification and this book shows us the way out.
You’ll discover what millions already have learned–how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what’s right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.
Whether at work or at home, self-deception obscures the truth about ourselves, taints our view of others and inhibits our ability to make wise and helpful decisions.

Getting Things Done
by David Allen
I learned that when I took his advanced GTD course a few years ago.
Keeping stuff in his head, he said, led to anxiety, drugs and a stint in a mental institution.
GTD gist? Get things out of your head and keep your mind clear for real creative work.
His book was and is a massive best seller and has led to a cult following. Getting Things Done
One of his best tips is to never put anything on a to-do list that isn’t clear or specific.
Don’t write “Mom’s birthday present,” Instead, write “order mom birthday present (candle from Diptyque) by Monday.”
When you have unanswered questions, “it’s like having a monkey on your back that won’t shut up.”
Want to shut up the monkey in your head? Buy this book.
12 Rules for Life
by Jordan B. Peterson
One of my favorite rules from his book:
Rule 3: Make friends with people who want the best for you.
Choose friends who want the world to be better, not worse. You need to be around people who support your upward aim and not tolerate
you when you self-sabotage.
Stop hanging around people who support your bad habits. Instead, surround yourself with people who want you to succeed and push you to do so.
