Drive by Daniel H. Pink

The book “Drive” by Daniel H.Pink is quite a book. It covers the topic of what motivation and uncovers some surprising  truths surrounding incentives and how these often have the opposite desired effect. A great read with many lessons that can be applied to your life and your business.

Perhaps they should apply some of this books teachings to the banking sector as a whole – or rather this sector is the exception that proves the rule.

The Thank You Economy by Gary Vey-ner-chuk

“The Thank You Economy” by Gary Vey-ner-chuk this is a folllow on book that helped me evolve my understanding of Social Media and the daily evolving opportunity to get “friends”, “fans” and “likes” with the ultimate goal of growing your business or giving it a boost in being an authority on your chosen subject.

There are many businesses that allow you to develop an income that is somewhat on automatic drive. I have since started experimenting with a few Affiliate Marketing companies and with advertisers direct to build a business with a long term view on the future of the chosen vertical.

Richest Man in Babylon - iainslist.com

The Richest Man in Babylon by George Samuel Clason

This book describes the cornerstone of sound financial advice with a tale to help associate it with reality.

I learnt a lot from this book and wish I had read the book when I was just a child. It has made me realise that educating each generation with the woes of this book would set the foundations of great financial stability for the future irrespective of that childs chosen path.

The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferris

Todays book is “The Four Hour Body” by Tim Ferris. It is a great book. I have been reading it on and off for a few months. It has resulted in me following a few of the chapters “biblically”.

Having adopted some of the advised workout programs, based on four hours a month, I have noticed a huge difference in my personal fitness and energy levels. I have also particularly enjoyed the chapter about nutrition and that giving yourself one day per week when you can eat anything, (guilt free) can have an added benefit to your fitness development, all I can say it that it works. To learn more I can highly recommend this book, a very easy read that you can dip in and out of as you prefer.

The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki

Hi – todays read. Well I didn’t read it today but want to share this one as it was pivotal to my understanding of the world we live in today.  The book is called “The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than the Few by James Surowieki”

I read this book a number of years ago in actual fact it was one of those books that you start to read then stop for a period then pick it back up again. The moment I picked it back up – the book turned a corner and blew me away with the power of the message. The online world had moved on a good bit with Twitter less than a year old and Facebook, only three years old, having just crossed the 20 million user registrations. Now given that by the end of 2010 user numbers were in excess of 500m users, this is clearly the wisdom of crowds in action.

The book has helped me understand more clearly the psychology of what is happening in the world of social media and how just a little insight into this phenomenon can help your own business evolve by engaging, even in a small way, more with your customers and with social media tools.
