The Last Book You Will Ever Have To Read

March 22, 2009

Are you lazy and incompetent? If you are anything like the rest of us, there is a fair chance that you enjoy staying inside your comfort zone more than you enjoy moving outside from it. When it comes to reading books we tend postpone it as long as possible. Even when we know that the book would be useful and interesting. What if I told you that there is a book which is the last book you will ever have to read? Would you bother to read the introduction of it? If your answer is yes, there is still hope.

I’m not reffering to bible or any other religious book. Although this book has touched directly to 20 million people. You have been effected as well by its influence through those millions of people. This all has happened without you even noticing, and there lies the beauty and secret of it.

The book is Dale Carnegie’s How To Win Friends & Influence People. Do yourself a favor and read it. I promise you can go through your whole life knowing that you don’t need to read another book.

How To Be More Creative

“If  I only had an idea I would … ” Does this sound familiar? Could everyone realize their dreams if they only had an idea. Just one idea, that is all. Sounds pretty reasonable, right?

The way I see it to find a good idea you need lots of ideas.

Instead of asking just one excellent idea, ask for a lot of ideas. Ask and you shall receive. If you ask only for one idea, you can be pretty sure you will get it. If you ask for many, you can choose which ones to use. I think it is great to have choices rather than hoping a lighting to hit you. Sure, that happens too, but if you are swinging your bat more than once, you are probably going to hit more home runs.
