πŸ‘‹ Thanks for the mention!

It still makes me really happy that people are discovering the books and getting value from them. Not bad for a few words on a keyboard.

Thank you for sharing, Jordan. Reading is such a hack for accelerated growth. I read Hyperfocus by Chris Bailey two years ago and it improved my productivity. I am definitely going to check out the productivity project.

Thanks for the diversified list, Jordan!

Like the typical advice of not putting all your eggs in the same basket when investing money, I find value in diversifying the learning into soft & hard skills. I discovered a couple of new books in this list that got my interest. I'll get the first 90 days for a transition I'm going to have soon :)

Great list, thank you! Immediately bookmarked quite a few in Audible. I would also add "Building a Storybrand" because it changed the way I thought about building products as an engineer but I also like the books of Alex Hormozi a lot because they give a lot of actionable stuff for founders on how to communicate things (even if they sound very marketing heavy).

Very good list, Thanks Jordan. Definitely gonna add one or two on my reading for next year. πŸ˜„

Ps I think there is a typo on the Crucial Conversations author. It is Grenny and not Grenney.
