I have personally read:

  • Mindset – Popularised Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset & how to be more open to learning.

  • Deep Work – Help you remove distractions so you can do your highest value work/learning

  • The Talent Code – Shows you how you can ‘learn’ to develop Talent.

And I agree that these books are amazing and should likely sit in the top 5.

I’m keen to knock over ‘Mastery’ & ‘Brain Rules’ in 2022.
