I have a mile high list of many, many books I want to read this fall and winter. This is just a few stories up. If you’ve read any of them, let me know why you think they should be on my list (or why I should take a pass). Or better yet, maybe you have another book that I should read first. Do share.
Book 1. Influence by Robert B. Cialdini because I need/want to stockpile my weapons of persuasion and it’s one of Scott Adam’s favorites. Scott is the creator of the comic strip Dilbert above.
Because I have read the teachings of Lucius Annaeus Seneca and Marcus Aurelius and I’m just crushin’ on these great stoic thinkers. Show me the way.
Book 2. A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy
Book 3. Super Better – because who doesn’t want to be? Read: SuperBetter: A Revolutionary Approach to Getting Stronger, Happier, Braver and More Resilient–Powered by the Science of Games
As Victor Frankl once said: “Those who have a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how’.
The Purpose Driven Life is on my list because, I’m always seeking. The question of existence….. Why am I alive? The question of significance…..Does my life matter? The question of purpose……What on earth am I here for?
Book 4. Read: The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?
The master’s journey can begin when you try to learn any new skill.
Book 5. Read: Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment
I love to cook and I have a thing for vegetables.
I heard an interview with Derek Sivers and even though he didn’t email me back, I am still very impressed with his brain.
Book 8. How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie. Dale shares simple wisdom that really makes you think good and hard about why you’re worrying and if those things are really worth worrying about at all. And God help me do I worry about everything.
