I’m Going to Practice Management Concepts on Myself

I’ve always loved reading self-help books. Recently, there are more and more self-help books in the management section so now I’m reading management books. This is super weird, because if you’ve read To Shift or Not to Shift, you’d know that I took a management course in college, hated it, and then shifted out. I guess I just didn’t get the information related to management that was interesting to me. Anyway, so here I am so pumped up with these management books, but then I have no leadership position. Then I realized something, I can use these concepts to manage myself and my life.

So step one is to review these management books. I’m concentrating on How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, Built to Last: The Successful Habits of Visionary Companies by Jim Collins and Jerry I. Porras, Good to Great by Jim Collins, John C. Maxwell’s leadership books (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, Developing the Leader in You, The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork), and Smarter Faster Better by Charles Duhigg. I will take notes and then find ways to apply the things I’ve learned.

  1. I just posted a book review over a self-help book yesterday! It was the second one that I have done so far, and I think that you might like it.

    Please stop by my page, I made it so that I could bring useful books to people who are looking for them, like you.

    1. Hello! I visited your site! I like the main objective of your project. It’s a really interesting idea to write short book reviews. But maybe you’d want to change your heading from “Short Book Reviews OVER Inspiring Books” to “Short Book Reviews OF Inspiring Books”? Using “over” might confuse some readers as though you’re asking them to favor short book reviews over inspiring books when I think you mean that you are going to make reviews of inspiring books. Hope that helps! Will visit your site again soon!
