THE POWER OF HABITS

by Charles Duhigg

I love this book.

Ok, maybe that’s a bit hyperbolic. But still – this book is absolutely amazing and I’d consider it essential reading for anyone who falls into the category of “human”.

As it turns out, habits shape much more of our behavior than we realize. The habits we do have largely determine the progress (either good or bad) we make in life. Bad habits are hard to break, and good ones are hard to form.

This book has literally changed my day-to-day life in profound ways. Now that I know how habits work, I’ve built over 20 new ones – waking up early, drinking more water, doing basic exercises daily, etc. I’ve also broken bad habits, which I’ve been doing since I was a kid.

This book translates the minds of successful entrepreneurs and what differentiates them. I don’t want to say much about this book, go and straightaway read yourself.

DEEP WORK

by Cal Newport

This one book is my personal favorite, which will help you dive deep into the secrets of focused working. It helped me to understand the importance of focused working and how our current habits are not in its favor.

Cal Newport tried to explain the practicability of deep work habits with various case studies and explain the benefits a knowledge worker per se a student can reap from it.
