I’ve gone back into another personal development binge and have read and listened to a great group of books in the last two months. Here they are:
Think Like a Monk by Jay Shetty. Social media influencer and former monk, Jay Shetty, brings together research, wisdom tradition, and his own personal experience in a nice book that provides a good set of tactics for improving your life.
Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani. Mindvalley founder Vishen Lakhiana shares his tactics for improving your life. Vishen gives a comprehensive approach to improving all aspects of your life. This book is a good companion to Think Like a Monk above.
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Sometimes fiction teaches better than non-fiction. Dostoyevsky touches on themes of good and evil, morality, and the individual vs. society in this masterpiece.
Total Freedom by Jiddu Krishnamurti. This is a great collection of the writings of the Indian thinker and philosopher. Whether you agree with him or not, Krishnamurti’s lucid thought will make you a better thinker.
Limitless by Jim Kwik. This book provides a powerful set of tactics for improving your mental performance, including memory, focus, reading, learning, and analytical thinking. He even has a chapter on brain foods.
I highly recommend all of these books. Let me know what you think, too, and feel free to share your thoughts on any personal development books that you have read in the last few weeks.
