5 Must Read Books for Success

A list of books I've read that have helped guide my thinking and behaviour toward success.
Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
This book will change your life. Seriously. It is a superb exploration on what makes us happy and content as the author describes and demonstrates the lifelong benefits and necessity of being in flow.
Michael Port's Book Yourself Solid
The tagline, "The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle", is accurate. There's so much meat and good guidance in this book that if you work for yourself, then it's a must-read. The chapter on which clients to say no to and not work with is worth the price alone.
Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull with Amy Wallace
This is one of those books where I was using the highlight feature on my Kobo on almost every page! If you are a leader or are lead by one, this book demonstrates through Pixar's success, how that whole relationship should happen. Dare I say the world would be a better place if even 50% of our leaders approached work and life like Ed Catmull and his gang?
Boundaries and Relationships: Knowing, Protecting and Enjoying the Self
This book literally changed my life. I believe your road to success in life, work and relationships will be very hard going until you can get a handle on what your boundaries are and how to go about protecting them.
CTRL ALT Delete by Mitch Joel
Here's what Mitch's site says about the book: "Reboot Your Business. Reboot Your Life. Your Future Depends On It. Everyone Is Connected. Connect Your Business To Everyone. The transition of all industries into the fully-digital future leaves everybody caught in a middle ground - it's not heaven, it's not hell, and it's very confusing."

If you want to have any relevancy in today's world, then read this. So much good insight into the new digital world we are working and playing in. As your Digital Fluency Coach, I believe that those who are not familiar with nor active in our new digital spaces will be left behind. Prevent that from happening to you by digging into this gem of a book.
