I’m betting if you’re here…
New Year = New Books.
Here are some books that have recently released (or will release this month!) that we are looking forward to adding to our personal library in 2020.
Master of One: Find and Focus on the Work You Were Created to Do by Jordan Raynor
“Most people spend their days making minimal progress in a million different directions, competent at many things but exceptional at none. But what if you could shift your focus from a million options to one?”
That’s exactly what this book is all about – revealing the steps to finding and thriving in your ONE thing. And in true swHw style, this isn’t about becoming an expert, but discovering the work God specifically created us to do in service to Him and others.
[P.S. Members, get excited! We interviewed Jordan inside membership on Wednesday, January 15. Log in to listen – you are going to LOVE him! Book releases 1/21/2020!]
The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry: How to Stay Emotionally Healthy and Spiritually Alive in the Chaos of the Modern World by John Mark Comer
My favorite quote of this book might simply be: “Hurry is the greatest enemy of your spiritual life.”
This world keeps moving faster, and it shows no signs of slowing down. So rather than waiting on the world to slow down, we’ve got to realize that slowing down and doing what matters most isn’t the world’s job: it’s ours.
Excellence Wins: A No-Nonsense Guide to Becoming the Best in a World of Compromise by Horst Schulze
Everyone wants a shortcut, but there’s no question that excellence beats compromise every single time. No matter what industry you’re in, the principles in this book are such powerful reminders that the best way to get ahead is by going the extra mile.
Oh, and you don’t need a fancy title or a big following for this book to be relevant. No matter what you do, you have everything you need to put these strategies into practice right now.
Relationomics: Business Powered by Relationships by Dr. Randy Ross
Something we say around here often is, “People are the point.” And this book centers around the strategies that help us make sure we are putting that into practice in our work.
Relationships aren’t accidental. They require our intentionality. So if you want to increase your effectiveness, reputation, and loyalty through relationships, this one’s for you.
