A few books that I keep coming back to

South Brent Hill

I love reading. I wish I could tell you how many books I've read, but I don't keep count.

Perhaps it's me, but very few books move me to change my worldview. (Contrast this to when I was a young man (19/20) when I thought such suggestive titles as ‘Think and Grow Rich’ were my life’s work!).

What about you?

When was the last time you read something that made you think and act differently?

However, there are a few books that have made a difference in my work and my life. It’s not an exhaustive list, but I thought I would share a brief selection (I’ll share a few more in a subsequent post):

  1. The Little Big Things by Tom Peters

  2. The Most Successful Small Business in the World by Michael E Gerber

  3. Linchpin by Seth Godin

  4. Enough by John Bogle

  5. The Speed of Trust by Stephen M R Covey

  6. Drive by Daniel H Pink

  7. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

  8. The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

  9. Do the Work by Derek Sivers

  10. Falling into Grace by Adyashanti

I’m not suggesting you rush out and buy any of these -- they may not float your boat -- but if you feel you’re living a shadow existence, they’re a good place to start.
