I don’t know about you, but one of my top new year’s resolutions was to read more books in 2022.
One of my favorite ways to start my morning routine is to sit with my cup of coffee (okay, more like 2… or 3… ) and read a chapter of a book. Starting my day with an inspirational book has been a GAME CHANGER.
It gives me the space to reflect on what I can be doing to put myself in a better mindset, level up my marketing habits, and just generally be better.
It also gives me a super dose of inspiration to kick serious butt and get things done in the day ahead.
Here are the three books I’m currently reading (or re-reading) and LOVING!
1. Atomic Habits by James Clear
This book has been SO important for me to keep coming back to, especially around the start of a new year.
I get into the cycle of starting off the year with lofty goals… and then getting nothing done.
Atomic Habits won’t teach you to go from couch potato to a 10k runner in one month.
It’s all about doing small changes every single day. Changes that STICK.
Author James Clear talks about improving yourself JUST 1% every day. These changes compound (just like interest), to eventually accumulate to a total transformation.
2. The Illusion of Money by Kyle Cease
This book has truly transformed how I think about money.
It’s also completely changed how I make decisions about what I want to pursue in life.
Author Kyle Cease lays out how our fear surrounding money is holding us back from pursuing our true passions and sharing our special gift with the world.
And if you know anything about me then you know that I truly believe that it’s when you share your personal, authentic, true SPARK with the world that true abundance follows.
Yeah… I kinda got that idea from this book. #SorryNotSorry
3. Traction by Gino Wickman
As the CEO of your own business, it can be frustrating when you’re not seeing the growth you desire, or you’re seeing your team struggle with getting things done smoothly.
Traction is full of mid-2000s masculine marketing energy, but it’s been one of the most helpful books I’ve read recently.
As Design Krew has grown and taken on more clients, the lessons I’ve learned from Traction have helped me run my team with efficiency and confidence.
