If you’ve read this blog long enough, you know that I periodically post what I’m reading through. I do this because I firmly believe reading other people’s thoughts and research helps us grow personally. Who we are, is a culmination of the people we are taught by; friends, family, teachers, pastors, musicians and authors.
Here’s the top five books I’ve read so far this year:
- Twelve Hours’ Sleep by Twelve Weeks Old by Suzy Giordano
When we first found out we were going to be parents, the research started. This book was recommended to us by a family member and really helped take all the guessing out of ‘What do we do!’ By following the guidelines Suzy laid out, our son was eating healthy amounts during the day and sleeping through the night by 12 weeks old. So glad we followed this!
- First Time Dad by John Fuller
When a dad of 6 writes a book to help give insight into raising children, I’ll definitely give it a read. This one was a good read to get a grasp on what it means to be a good dad, especially entering in to it for the first time.
- Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t by Simon Sinek
In this work, Sinek discusses the effects of natural chemicals in our own bodies, and how those chemicals can either be fostered in an environment of fear or trust in any organization. Filled with stories and examples from the Marine Corps to Big Business to Small Tribes, if the people do not feel safe, they will not trust the leader or the organization.
- Rhinoceros Success by Scott Alexander
This is a small, silly book with a HUGE message. It’s motivating and straight to the point. Get ready. Set. GO!
- Retire Inspired: It’s Not an Age, It’s a Financial Number by Chris Hogan
Retirement should not be the worst time of your life. It should be the Best!
In this book Christ Hogan discusses how and why we can each have a fulfilled life, personally and financially after we decide to retire. Full of practical examples and tons of financial advice, this is a must read for everyone, whether you’re thinking about retirement now – or 30 years from now.
Well that’s it for now. Hope you find some value in the books I recommend. Until next time.
