For anyone who knows me in real life or follow me on the interwebz, it’s no secret I have a problem.
You see… I’m a junkie.
Every day I wake up and live a life of servitude to my addiction. It’s all consuming. It’s obsessive. And at times, it’s truly a burden for those close to me.
I’m a remorseless education junkie.
At this point in my life, I like to diversify my education portfolio. I go to at least one, often two, and occasionally three conferences per month. I hire coaches for myself (and the team) when I want more targeted help. I also value candid feedback about the various places I may be getting in my own way/ fucking up MFF (thanks MFFers!).
But my first love has always been, and always will be, books.
Over the past few years I’ve spiced up my consumption by integrating audiobooks. I’ve also trained my ear to understand two times, or even two and half, times speed.
One day soon, I will write a comprehensive article (or film a video??) on my personal approach to productivity. For today, I’ll simply tease you that I generally get through 8-12 books a month.
(REQUEST: Email me at email@example.com if you have a preference as to how you want me to cover my approach to time management. I’m either going to create a course to drip feed it, film a 90 minute presentation I’ve done in the past for the team, OR write a mondo article. What should I do? Let me know what makes your heart sing.)
And although I’m going to keep you waiting with baited breath as to how I consume this much, today I’d like to share what I consume.
Below is my list of all time favey faves.* This list also includes all of the Mark Fisher Fitness full team reading assignment to date (with *).
Would love for you to leave a comment and let me know how many of these 51 books you’ve read. Any ones you would add? What else should I add to my list of favey faves?
Enjoy, let me know what you think, and for the love of all that’s holy, share this list with anyone you know who wants to kick business ass.
