Mastery of oneself in life and work, is perhaps, one of the biggest challenges in millennial’s era. I am not talking about being perfect in every aspect, but being able to understand what your aspirations, goals and desires are, and being able to exercise them in most fulfilling manner.
I believe that to craft your unique path a person has to find a way that helps him to do so, for me it’s reading. I enjoy reading popular psychology books, modern self-management textbooks, and Ancient Greek and Roman philosophy.
So, if you are looking for getting to know yourself and enjoy reading popular psychology and philosophy I am sharing my top 4 self-development books:
- Thinking Fast and Slow (2011)
by Daniel Kahneman, an Israeli-American professor of public affairs at Princeton University and Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences.
- Meditations (2006)
by Marcus Aurelius, a Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD.
- The Art of Happiness (1998)
by Dalai Lama XIV, a monk and the spiritual leader of Tibet.
Howard C. Cutler, American writer and psychologist.
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (1989)
by Stephen Richards Covey, an American educator and keynote speaker.
