If you’ve been following along, you’ve noticed that one of my goals for this year is to read more books. By doing so, I’ve been trying to create a monthly reading list to follow. I decided it would be fun to create a new book theme for each month. First up is January, the month of productivity. Since I’m striving to complete new goals, creating new habits and routines, I think productivity is a great place to start!

I ended 2016 with a great productivity read. As I previously mentioned in this post, “Eat that Frog: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating” by Bryan Tracey, is a great read to boost productivity. It offers sound advice to get more things done in the amount of time you already have. It includes action items at the end of every chapter to get you started and on your way to complete all those things you’ve been procrastinating! Plus, not to mention, it’s a really quick read! I finished the whole book in a day! I highly recommend adding it to your reading list.

To continue with the theme of productivity, here is my reading list for January:

  1. How to have a 48-Hour Day by Don Aslett
  2. 168 Hours by Laura Vanderkam
  3. What the Most Successful People do before Breakfast by Laura Vanderkam
  4. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

Bonus: I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time by Laura Vanderkam

As you can see, there’s a bit to a theme with the authors as well. I recently listened to a TedTalk featuring Laura Vanderkam and I was intrigued. I dug deeper and learned she’s a productivity extraordinaire and has done a lot of research on the topic. I’m looking forward to reading her books.

What books are you planning to read this month? Do you have a theme to your selection? I’d love to hear any book recommendations!
