My Favourite Self-Help Books
What’s so special about self-help books?
Self-help books are great. They inspire you to look at yourself in the mirror. Sometimes, the insights will rattle you, but they have your best interests at heart. Books have contributed significantly to my development.
In my life, I have read more than 100 self-help books and books on self-improvement. I would even dare to say that I owe many good things in my life to these books.
They helped me become successful in my work, happy with my life, and improved my relationships and personal development.
But not all self-help books are created equal. Some books were a waste of time, while others helped me take ten steps forward in my life. On this page, I present a selection of books that helped me a lot.
These are my favourite self-help books that have had the greatest impact on my life.
This list of self-help books is partly objective. These self-help books are a combination of my subjective experience and objective worldwide recognition.
“Success is the product of daily habits—not once-in-a-lifetime transformations.”
“You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”
When it comes to change, tiny is mighty. Start with two pushups a day, not a two-hour workout; or five deep breaths each morning rather than an hour of meditation.
Getting things done requires defining what “done” means and what “doing” looks like.
Mastering your workflow involves capturing what has your attention, clarifying what it means, putting it where it belongs, reviewing it frequently, and engaging with it.
