We’re committed to learning on the job here at Project 30 HQ. It’s helpful to sharpen our abilities to learn as we seek new knowledge and skills, which is why the following books have become favorites among our team members.
Edward B. Burger’s “The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking” has given us practical strategies for building our skill sets. The author’s main contention is that every risk you take has the potential to bring valuable insights, even in the event of unexpected outcomes. We’ve embraced the idea that missteps represent forward progress in our Project 30 exploits.
Like many professionals, we’ve also become big fans of Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.” By applying the book’s insights on living with purpose, we’re better equipped to apply what we’re learning every day to our long-term professional goals. The book’s tips for more effective communication also help us use the fresh knowledge we gain.
Sometimes we need an extra jolt of inspiration to ramp up our educational efforts, which is why we enjoy Steven Kotler’s “The Rise of Superman: Decoding the Science of Ultimate Human Performance.” It includes tips for staying in touch with our passion for improvement and pushing beyond our current comfort zones.
These are just a few of the books we’ve embraced through our commitment to constant learning. Find more of our best growth strategies by following Project 30 on https://twitter.com/30_project.
