Over the past few years I've created an essential library.
These are books and audiobooks that I read frequently and repeatedly to improve my skillsets in life, business and sales. It's not really a checklist or curriculum but a grouping of related concepts as I've explored these titles.
I resist the bestseller of the month temptation and prefer to master a few.
There are a few keys to this diagram.
The 3 titles in red are the core: Learned Optimism, Art of Exceptional Living, and the DISC Assessment.
I have given countless copies of Learned Optimism over the years, and the tenets, concepts and homework contained have been essential.
The DISC assessment has proven to be a powerful communication tool, helping me understand myself and others.
The Art of Exceptional Living has taught me discipline - essential for when my motivation wanes.
The larger circles are the more powerful and impactful titles in each arena. I prefer certain titles as audiobooks, others as print, and certain titles with topics I want to master, I use both. They are marked with a star and/or a diamond. There's a link to the PDF below as well.
Knowledge needs to be shared.
Thoughts and hopefully inspirations from the Warmfront.
