My book list of 2018
In this book complication for 2018, I will be sharing what I have read for the whole of last year and how the stories of each author will inspire you to greatness!
Teach Students How to Learn: Strategies You Can Incorporate into Any Course to Improve Student Metacognition, Study skills, and Motivation by Saundra McGuire
She was my tkeynote
The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge
Peter Senge was an accidental discovery that kept coming back to haunt me. It tells me a lot on how organisations can evolve towards learning organisations. It captivated me with concepts such as learning disabilities, found within
The Yes Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, and Resilience in Your Child by Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson
This book calms me quite a little, especially the lessons in dealing with children emotions. These are really practical strategies that I easily took away, including understanding the three different zones(red
Outliers: The story of success by Malcolm Gladwell
This title became a conversation starter as I was also trying to find out how successful people really became successful. I was portraying the story of how people who were born between January to March were more successful than those who were born later. I personally find pleasure in reading this book as it unlocked many successful people’s behind the scene stories and captivated me throughout. The many external factors other than high IQ that weighs in to make a person successful kept me going in this book.
Deviate: The creative power of transforming your perception by Beau Lotto
This book felt like going through Inception(the movie). Unlock new perspectives of what you perceive the world as, and see why others are actually not seeing what you see. You’ll begin understanding that whatever you see around the world right now, might not be what it really is. I hope he doesn’t mess around with your mind too much. I shall not add on anymore spoilers.
Make Your Bed by Admiral William H. McRaven
I had a dream, that dream was to change the world. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how should I go about doing this. Make your bed is a simple and concise book on how you can make a difference in your life, he suggested 10 life lessons you need to bear in mind, he re-emphasizes it through his Navy seal stories. Start with making your bed each day, and you’ll change the world. This book is short and certainly worth the read.
Pour Your Heart into It by Howard Schultz
This was one of the first books that were published by Howard Schultz. I’m an avid fan of him since I started drinking coffee. This book perfectly describes his roller coaster journey from being in Starbucks to making it an iconic brand today. He will share how he persisted with some of his ideas and pushed on to help make Starbucks even greater. The never give up spirit inspires me!
