Last year I made the commitment to read more, it didn’t need specifically to be in quantity by measuring the total of books read, but in quality instead.

4 — Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action
5 — The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
6 — The 4-Hour…
