Three Books to Help You Stay Motivated as 2017 Continues

April 18th, 2017

It’s sad but true that most New Years’ Resolutions don’t last beyond January. Career goals are just as hard to stick to. As the year progresses, you may find that it gets harder and harder to stay motivated. We’ve got three fantastic books to read this spring to help keep you motivated throughout the rest of 2017.

The Go-Getter: A Story That Tells You How To Be One

If you like reading novels, but struggle with non-fiction or self-help books, this is the book for you. Peter B. Kyne was an American novelist, but has been described as “a businessman at heart” (source: The Literature Network). His novel, The Go-Getter: A Story That Tells You How To Be One, sounds like a bargain-bin self-help book, but it is in fact a creative and motivational parable. Short and to the point, The Go-Getter is sure to provide the right boost of motivation for anyone who feels like they are in a slump at work.

Hack Your Habits: 9 Steps to Finally Break Bad Habits & Start Thriving

Joanna Jast promises a “no-fluff” approach to self-improvement in Hack Your Habits. Rather than romanticizing the struggle to succeed, Jast provides practical steps to get results. She focuses on automating processes in your life, so that you have less to think about and can achieve your goals with minimal effort. If you’re struggling with procrastination at work, try reading Hack Your Habits to get back on track, and get things done.

Level Up Your Life: How to Unlock Adventure and Happiness by Becoming the Hero of Your Own Story

“If you’re wondering how I went from risk-adverse nerd to globe-trotting Indiana Jones, it started in 2007 with a panic attack.” That’s how Steve Kamb, founder of Nerd Fitness, starts off the first chapter of Level Up Your Life. Using his own story, as well as stories from the Nerd Fitness community, Kamb outlines his revolutionary approach to motivation and goal-setting. Create an alter ego, build an epic quest list, and recruit allies. Level Up Your Life is a great read for anyone who’s ever wished life were more like a game.
