Habits from 75 Hard – Read EVERY day.


 
One habit #75Hard got me back into was reading EVERY day. Here’s what I read over the 75 days.
Principles – Ray Dalio
I’d started this beforehand and was struggling to finish it. Blazed through it once I started 75 Hard.
The Power Of Positive Thinking – Norman Vincent Peale
The seminal positive mental attitude book. Some good stories and quotes to keep in mind.
Mindset – Carol S. Dweck
This is an EXCELLENT read. Check out all the bookmarks I made. Well worth keeping close by.
Courage Under Fire – James Bond Stockdale
I’d seen this book mentioned by several authors I read and it didn’t disappoint. Wow! James Stockdale is a legend and proved beyond doubt the Stoics were on to something, that works.
So Good They Can’t Ignore You – Cal Newport
A book I’d had on the shelf for some time and I wished I’d read it earlier. Cal Newport makes a good argument for why skills trump passion and why a whole generation has basically been lied too. Finding your passion is crap advice.
Purple Cow – Seth Godin
I wanted to reread this and it seemed like a good time. It’s well worth working on being re-markable.
The 10X Rule – Grant Cardone
This was a good read. Better than I expected it to be and solid advice on how to think big and get real about the work it takes to get there.
Everything Is Fucked – Mark Manson
Well, holy heck. I remember saying out loud in the second half of this book that it went to a completely unexpected place for me. That you’re reading Kant, Nietzsche and how Edward Bernays (Freud’s nephew) invented marketing as we know it today is unexpected, fun and enlightening.
