In the prior article I’ve talked about the importance of setting your priorities straight, so I thought I would make a list of books that can help you accomplish that. So without further ado, here they are:
Knowing your goals is very important, but that is not enough. Knowing your goals and not doing anything to fulfill them is like buying a bicycle to get more exercise done and then never using it. This is what this book wants to teach us, to see the big picture and stop being distracted from our goals by different temptations and unimportant stuff. If you’re a procrastinator and are really bad at managing your priorities, this book is written for you. This will help you keep your daily activities in check, keep track of what’s important, and get back on track if you happen to lose yourself along the way.
This book is an amazing life lesson. It is an inspirational story about a teacher diagnosed with terminal cancer that sets out to visit all his old students to see how they are doing in life and to talk to them about priorities and what is truly important in life. David Menasche, the author of this book, is a high school English teacher with a remarkable relationship with his students. Even if cancer took his mobility, vision, and ability to teach, he was determined to live in the present for the time he had left and continue to be an inspiration to his students. Seeing his resolve can only force anyone reading this book reassess their priorities in life. It is a truly inspirational book that forces you to put everything in perspective.
The book tries to make sense of how we all got in this always-busy stage that we’re in so that we can have a better understanding of where we’re coming from and where we’re going with our lives if we continue like this. Life is so short and precious not to be enjoyed, so it’s worth it to take the necessary steps to help you live a more fulfilling life. This is what this book aims to teach us. The author feels really personal and takes a friendly approach to teaching us how to find the perfect balance between all the things we’re juggling in our busy lives and how to find the time to take a deep breath. This book is short and sweet and will give you just the nudge you needed to get on track with your life. If you feel the need for a little tough love to be able to set your priorities straight, this is the book you’re searching for.
