Thoughts on the book? Is it Google
Ads specific or more broad strategy? Applicable across businesses or specific to one industry? (Ecom only, local service biz only, etc.)
The physical book is going for $8o on US Amazon but kindle is $9. Is the book heavy on pictures and graphics or am I safe to get the kindle version?

I whizzed through it and it’s short but packed. No images that I recall. It should be good for Kindle. I liked the book. I’ll be trying some of the strategies on Google Ads as well as Facebook Ads.

Ultra learning by scott h young. It's a book about increasing your comprehension speed and learning speed. You'll learn a lot from it, I've already learnt so much so far. If you can implement the principles stated in this book. You can learn anything quickly and comprehend better. I highly recommend

Going to be reading Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg next. Heard from a reliable source (T Harv Eker's son) that this is a great book

Just got done with Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. That and Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss are my favorites of the year. Moving on to Tribal Leadership by David Logan.

I know Atomic Habits has been mentioned before but I have it on Audible and print now and would highly recommend you read it in conjunction with Deep Work by Cal Newport.

1.) Atomic Habits (James Clear)
2.) Deep Work (Cal Newport)

Here's a brilliant interview with both of them:

I read it some time back. Everyone has a different style of writing they enjoy, and not every eating style suits everyone. I didn't enjoy reading it, nor did I enjoy the slow carb diet. That being said, if followed I am sure you will get results.
The one thing that I did take away and occasionally still use is his suggested sleep stack - melatonin, magnesium, poppy seed extract and huperzine-a. I am a cancer survivor and struggle with pain a lot. Because of that, I struggle to sleep well. But of everything I have tried, that stack of supplements 30 mins before lights out is the best.
The other point to make is that he makes claims as to the amount of muscle he quickly gained. I think that claim is legit, but take it with a grain of salt. He had previously been muscular, which makes it easier to gain muscle back.

So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love​

by Cal Newport

-Great read, I'm often reading multiple themed books simultaneously so I've got a few generic creativity books going right now as well as "start with why", basic premise is that "follow your passion" is terrible advise.

The overarching focus seems to be for "careers" but its simple enough to make the jump to business ownership, one interesting correlate is "career capital" , getting really good at one thing (so good, in fact that you can't be ignored0 well what's the obvious translation here? , a filthy amount of value on offer.

Which seems like common sense but I feel we sometimes get a bit ahead of ourselves (hence all the "metoo" businesses and people trying to catch falling knives / entering on the back end of a fad)

Huge overlap with "control" (from CENTS) , in fact the author digs into this enough - with examples so that in terms of weighing the value of any of the CENTS facotrs in building a business you might want to give extra attention to control (because you'll just enjoy the process that much more)

Last month, I started reading "12 Rule for Life" by Jordan Peterson. It's very insightful and my first read for this year of 2021.
JP is an interesting man. I might give that a go.

I'm currently reading "The creative habit" by Twyla Tharp. A book about being a creative person, but for an artist. At the beginning I thought that this book was not for me, but near the end it's started to growth in me.

One of the nugget that I found is to do things that you don't want to do, no matter how small there are. So later you can confront problems more difficult.

I bought Atomic Habits and it arrived today. I was following the author James Clear on twitter, he tweeted something interesting and added a link to his mailing list, so I signed up. A day later I got an email that the book was 50% off and if I sent through proof of purchase I would receive bonus material and chapters. Clicked through, purchased, emailed, and got the bonus material.

I wanted to buy it anyway but his funnel was impressive, 1 tweet and I'd bought his book a day later.

Finished Atomic Habits before I continued on to TMF and ended up here. Funny, that!

I think it’s a great book. Nothing particularly revolutionary in the theory department, but it shines because it summarizes other books nice and tightly, and boils them down to *actionable* steps more so than, say, Duhigg.

I am interested in The 48 laws of power. Is it worth reading or just time waste ?

Look it up on Amazon and read the reviews, that often gives you a good idea of what it's about

I recently finished reading The Five Second Rule by Mel Robbins. It was an easy read, and pretty repetitive. Despite that, the simple "starting ritual" at its core helped me overcome procrastination. Something that no other book has reliably done.
