Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the brain.

Favorite Quote: “When we’re able to put most of our energy into developing our natural talents, extraordinary room for growth exists. So, a revision to the ‘You-can-be-anything-you-want-to-be’ maxim might be a more accurate: You cannot be anything you want to be—but you can be a lot more of who you already are.”
Read This if You: Want to gain insight on your natural talents, how to foster them, and how to communicate them to others.
In a Nutshell: Our lives are full of different habits, whether we’re conscious of them or not. While habits can’t be broken, they can be changed. This book explores personal and organizational habits to illustrate how we can manipulate them and change their outcomes.
Favorite Quote: “Typically, people who exercise start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change.”
Read This if You: Want to learn how to create deep and fundamental change on a personal or organizational level.
Favorite Quote: “When our body language is confident and open, other people respond in kind, unconsciously reinforcing not only their perception of us but also our perception of ourselves.”
Read This if You: Want to learn how small tweaks in your everyday life can help you develop the most confident version of yourself.
In a Nutshell: Sinek shares his findings on leadership after studying several iconic influencers. His model outlines how leaders need to express their “why” in order to build a successful organization or movement.
Favorite Quote: “All organizations start with WHY, but only the great ones keep their WHY clear year after year. Those who forget WHY they were founded show up to the race every day to outdo someone else instead of to outdo themselves. The pursuit, for those who lose sight of WHY they are running the race, is for the medal or to beat someone else.”
Read This if You: Want to understand how to pulse-check your own motivations and organization and inspire your community to take action.
In a Nutshell: This book explores how creative endeavors are often stalled by our own self-doubt. Get insight around how to tackle this obstacle and achieve your goals.
Favorite Quote: “Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.”
Read This if You: Have ever felt like something is holding you back from your calling and creative goals—and you’re ready to overcome it.
