On this page you’ll find an ever growing menu of suggestions and recommendations of books, people, articles, documentaries and more that you can tap into to help with your own growth and learning. Take it, or leave it. Read a little, read a lot. Watch a little, watch a lot. Either way, anything listed here is something that I think can provide value or help to someone out there.
By the way, here’s a great lesson I’ve learned about books in just the last couple of years. I grew up loving books. I love having books, magazines, papers, and I love reading whenever I can. But I used to stress if I started a book, or even a magazine, and couldn’t finish it. Well guess what, there’s no rule or law that says we have to read a book in its entirety. It’s great if we do. But if we don’t, that’s ok too.
As Naval Ravikant stated so perfectly in his appearance on the Tim Ferriss podcast, “we are taught at an early age that books are sacred”, and therefore we feel we need to finish them. But alas, there’s no rule that says we must. Read what you can, read what you want from a book. If time becomes an issue and you don’t finish it, that’s ok. If you don’t like it after two or three chapters, that’s ok. Start a different book. Books are our best source of learning and information. Gobble them up, whenever you can. But you don’t have to read every book cover to cover. To me, books are like relationships. Not every relationship works, not every one is all that great. But I still learned something from every relationship I’ve ever had. Books will do the same, even if they’re not that good, even if you don’t finish it. You’ll still learn something.
Now go start (or continue) reading.
