The book is filled with success stories and writing prompts to help people discover their own full potential.
3. Principles: Life and Work by Ray Dalio
The #1 New York Times bestseller from the billionaire American investor stems from Dalio’s belief that there are fundamental principles that are applicable to all both life and business.

4. Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang
Written by a Silicon Valley futurist and business consultant, Rest argues against the traditional notion that more work equals a better outcome. The book implements research and examples of writers, painters and thinkers to talk about the importance of “deliberate rest” which allows people to work more effectively and live better lives.
Written by a graffiti artist and entrepreneur, The Spark and the Grind aims to dispute the idea that there are dreamers or doers, and that it is instead necessary for these two concepts, aka the spark and the grind, to combine for true creativity to flourish. By looking at examples of artists, philosophers, scientists and other visionaries, Wahl is able to effectively demonstrate the need for the two to be synthesized.
