Reading has been a huge part in my own journey. Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start…here are a few ideas if you are looking for personal development books. Even if you are sceptical about what books can do for you, what have you got to lose in buying one of these and seeing what resonates with you? This book ‘How Full Is Your Bucket?’ was a game changer for me, Helen Yates thank you for lending the book to me and for being so kind as to not ask for it back 🙂
Reading Top Tips
I love listening to audio books on audible.com as I can balance other tasks with listening to really interesting books. When I was travelling lots with work audio books and podcasts were a great way to pass a few hours and learn at the same time. Now I am at home more I like to listen to something new early in the day and also while doing mundane household chores! YouTube is also brilliant way to find explainer videos of the key messages in any mainstream book too.
