As I enjoy the summer thinking about my next professional adventure, I have gotten turned on to a few books. They are quite different, but after making reasonable progress on each I can definitely recommend them.
1. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill - written in 1939 (with some recent updating) it contains words of wisdom compiled from 500 interviews from successful people like Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, etc. In a nutshell: Desire is the starting point, followed by a clear plan. Then, you visualize your success and train your conscious and subconscious mind to make it real. Done.
2. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK written by Mark Manson - the name is pretty self-explanatory. It is a very easy read and needless to say, I am really enjoying this one.
3. Human + Machine: Reimagining Work in the Age of AI written by Paul R. Daugherty and H. James Wilson (both work at Accenture) - a little heady, but super interesting with the general premise that AI and machine learning are augmenting humans not replacing them.
When I finish them, I will post any additional insights gained. Would love any additional reading recommendations....
