Archive for January, 2010
And just like that: 2010 is officially here. Time to look back one last time to review my goals from 2009 and refresh my list of desired accomplishments for the current year.
One of my goals for 2010 is to read 24 new books and post a minimum of one lesson learned, or overview/review, for each book.
I may have missed a few, but this was my reading list from 2009:
Good to Great
Good to Great and the Social Sectors
Leadership Isn’t Rocket Science
Tuesday’s With Morrie
The Art of the Start
The Tipping Point
Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done
The Character of Leadership
The Last Lecture

Think and Grow Rich
Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting out of the Box
Man’s Search for Meaning
Finding Hidden Treasures
What Color is Your Parachute (2009)
Made to Stick
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln
The Leadership Pipeline

The Leadership Challenge
Thinking for a Change
WordPress for Dummies

I still have five to ten books in my library just waiting to be read for the first time. Also, my wish list of books to read continues to grow rapidly.
Besides finishing some of the books I started in 2009, here are a few books I have in queue for this year: Blink, What the Dog Saw, Blue Ocean Strategy, Strength Based Leadership, Freakonomics, The 4-Hour Work Week, and The E Myth.
Where do I begin?
