So many of us want to read more as a new years resolution and its a great goal. Well, 2016 was a great year for my ‘to-read’ list. Here are my top recommendations for books!
The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. Read THIS book, this year! A+ material in my opinion. I’ll probably revisit this book every year!
Level Up Your Life: How to Unlock Adventure and Happiness by Becoming the Hero of Your Own Story by Steve Kamb. Steve is the mastermind behind Nerd Fitnesss and if you are a geek (or a nerd) this book is FOR YOU! Why are we leveling up our characters and not ourselves. This is not a fitness book, but more of a self-help book specifically for ME. *probably you too.
Sketching Light: An Illustrated Tour of the Possibilities of Flash by Joe McNally, is more for photographers that are not afraid of flash. Yeah, I’m talking to YOU… the one who says “I’m more of a ‘natural light’ photographer. In ALL my contacts, I’ve met maybe two photographers who are REALLY good with ‘natural light’ the rest are simply terrified of flash. I did a more in depth review on my personal blog.
Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy. I’m a big fan of Michael Hyatt. His wisdom and willingness to share is admirable. I cannot remember when I first heard about this book, but immediately put it at the top of the queue and so glad I did. Another self-help book that is geared towards those who feel like they have ‘drifted off course’ and looking to right the ship!
