My 3 Favorite Business Building Books

Uncategorized Feb 06, 2018

Hey Docs!

We're one month into 2018?

Is it going as planned? Are you executing on your ideas? Are you on a path to growth?

Or, have things faltered. You're running in to roadblocks. Things aren't getting done.

I know that feeling.

My marketing coordinator gave me her 2 weeks notice 17 days ago. We scrambled to disperse her tasks to other members of our team, hire a replacement, and figure out what we did wrong to push her away. 

I understand working for a small business has its limitations on growth, but all we ask is before you decide to go, please tell us so we have time to find an adequate replacement. (This was the most frustrating part from this; She didn't come to us sooner. I need to work on better intra-office communication).

So when shit hits the fan, I fall back on 3 major books that have helped me get to where I am now. I pop them open and enjoy the warm embrace of an old friend. I read back over any notes I've taken in the margins. I skim the fluff, and dive into my favorite chapters. Then I put them down and begin again.

Best Book for Time Management:

Practical Application:

  • Create a success list as compared to a to-do list
  • Say “no” more
  • Be like a surgeon and avoid distractions; respect your work
  • Ask more quality questions
  • Determine you“System”
  • Block 4 hours a day for the “one thing”


Best Book for Spiritual Centering

Practical Application:

  • Be impeccable with your word - Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

  • Don’t take anything personally - Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

  • Don’t make assumptions - Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

  • Always do your best - Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

  •  Hits 3 key areas of life: Health, Wealth, and Wisdom
