    I’ve had it recommended a couple of times so finally gave it a try.

    I thought it was ok. Nothing groundbreaking, however good for anybody with a “poor me” mindset. It’s a quick read so worth being on your list.

    Finished You Need A Budget. Also finished Science of Self-learning....I don’t recommend it. A couple of good nuggets but a lot of words with no purpose. Currently about a third of the way through Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs.

    Started UNSCRIPTED and excited as ever after finishing THE MILLIONAIRE FASTLANE!! "THE ONE THING" is next on my list, anyone read it? My girlfriend recommended it to me and said some stuff that really brought back the idea of finding something and sticking to it because I too easily get stuck on many different ideas even after the MILLIONAIRE FASTLANE, it's on the top of my list of somethings I need to work on!

    Someone mentioned Principles by Ray Dalio, it's simply one of the best book I've read.

    Currently I'm reading The Power of Full Engagement, and This is Marketing by Seth Godin.

    What Intelligence Tests Miss... this is a book about how even the most intelligent people make stupid decisions due to irrationality. The author calls it dysrationalia. I'm sure that Fastlaners are aware that IQ is no guarantee against stupidity!

    I want to be able to make solid decisions most of the time by guarding against biases. I'm aware that no one makes perfect decisions, but careless and irrational decision-making is really bad, according to me. I really like Warren Buffett's approach - he said he had a list of biases that he cross-checks every time he is about to make a decision.

    Does this sound right, or will I be wasting my time?

    Yes! Recently found out that this is a fully licensed reprint. I’ll be ordering it ASAP. I have a pile of others that I need to get through first.

    Best Served Cold, by Joe Abercrombie. Not a business book you say? Please! It's all about freelancers... uh, free lances... competition, goal setting, and execution (in more ways than one!). Pure usable information, just... dramatized.

    There is a seller who has reprint rights, but even at $125 it's still a tough pill to swallow. I have a badass thermodynamics book that I'm going to try to sell, it goes for $195. So anything near that and I won't have to deal with the wife, when the advertising book shows up... :D

    I'm reading: Self-directed Behavior: Self-modification for Personal Adjustment

    Why: I struggle to control my behavior and work consistently.

    Why I think this book will help: It's a real evidence based book that teaches the skills of self/behavioral regulation. They've even tested the effectiveness of the book itself! Students in college courses who use it to make changes to their behavior are significantly more successful. The times it doesn't work is when they don't use more than one of the techniques, or don't use it long enough.

    Who should read it: If you often tell yourself: I don't have enough willpower, I am not consistent, I wish I worked more on my business etc.

    Re-listening to TMF but just got Atomic Habits on Audible. My commute is 1.5 hours one way. The only good thing is the time spent listening to books and thinking.
