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.

Deep Work by Cal Newport is easily one of the most influential books I’ve read in the past two years.
He shares the two core tenets for flourishing in our breakneck speed economy: 1) master complicated things fast and 2) produce at an elite level, in both quality and speed.
To hone these abilities you need to do deep work and master the ability to focus intensely on a task.

One of the great fears many of us face is that despite all our effort and striving, we will discover at the end that we have wasted our life. In A Guide to the Good Life, William B. Irvine plumbs the wisdom of Stoic philosophy, one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable to modern lives.
