Over the past 9 years, I’ve read over 300 books on how to live intentionally, perform better and grow your business sustainably.

Save yourself the time and read these top 10 👇:

Book #1: Four Thousand Weeks

Most people fall for time management, productivity and efficiency.

The average human lifespan is about 4,000 weeks.

This book teaches you how to construct a meaningful life by embracing finitude. It will shift your perspective.

Book #2: Essentialism

Most people try to get more done in less time. You end up overcommitted, overloaded, or overworked.

This book teaches you how to get the right things done.

Book #3: Rest

When everyone tells you to work more, it makes you wonder when enough is enough. You fall for the cult of busyness.

This book teaches you that rest is the path to success.

Book #4: The Burnout Epidemic

Most people misunderstand burnout and how to cure it.

This book teaches you that burnout is not a personal problem but rather an organizational and societal one. We can create happier, healthier and more productive workplace.

Book #5: Dark Horse

For generations, we’ve been taught that success is to be like everyone else, just better, leaving most people unfulfilled and struggling.

Dark Horse teaches you to blaze your own trail to bliss. Harness your individuality in the pursuit of fulfillment to achieve excellence.

Book #6: Time Off

Most people see busyness as a badge of honor.

Challenge the notion that busy=productive.

This book teaches you that your work ethic needs similarly strong rest ethic.
