Big part of my progress and development is by reading books.
I read more than before, I actually think that this is one of the key aspect of a successful life and successful hustle. So, I strongly encouraged you to grab a book and read it then apply what you’ve learn in a good manner.
If you’re curious of what books that I am currently reading. I’m very glad to share it and stoke to know your recommendation too. Just drop it bellow.
N1. Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
If you found yourself stretched too thin, feel overworked and underutilized, feel motion sickness instead of momentum, hijacked by someone else’s agenda and say yes simply to please someone?
This book is for you. It’s involves doing less, but better, so you can make the highest possible contribution. I found this book 4 months ago while scouting in a bookstore but, you can buy this book online. I highly recommend this for creative professionals. Read it and let me know how it helps you.
N2. The Design of Everyday Things
This book is by cognitive scientist and usability engineer Donald Norman. This is about how design serves as the communication between object and user, and how to optimize that conduit of communication in order to make the experience of using the object pleasurable. (from Wikipedia). I personally love this book and highly encourage y’all to read it specially if you’re doing a project enhancing user experience, it can help you to understand more on how people interact with everyday things that designed to a specific need. I bought this through Book Depository with the help of a very good friend of mine Janine Salazar, which is also one of great designers I known here in the Philippines. Big thanks!
N3. Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days
This book is written by Knapp, John Zeratsky, and Braden Kowitz, all partners at Google Ventures. a sprint is a process for solving a business challenge in a week. The idea is that without the distractions of working on several projects at once, a small group of the right people can resolve a difficult problem in significantly less time. (From bookverdict). I higly recommend this book to all Freelancers, business owners and entrepreneurs out there. It’s very helpful if you are starting up or finding ways to jump from being an employee to business owner.
