Here’s a list of the books I read this month!
- The Power of Moments by Chip Heath and Dan Heath
- The One Thing by Gary Keller
- Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak
This book was really good, I’m definitely interested in reading more of the Heath brothers’ books. This specific one was about explaining why some moments are memorable while others aren’t, and they list several different reasons a specific moment can be more special than another one. I highly recommend this book if you’re interested in how you can create special moments that have lasting impact in your work or personal life.
Gary Keller, the author of this book, is the founder of Keller Williams, which is the largest real estate company in the world. I experienced a funny coincidence where while I was reading through this book, I attended a seminar for first-time homebuyers at my local library and the agent who was conducting the seminar was from Keller Williams – coincidink!
In this book Keller talks about how having one goal and one focus can really help boost your purpose and passion in your work and life and how helps you achieve your goals. I was skeptical of some of his statements but there were also others that resounded with me so my opinion on this book is that it’s pretty inspiring but you should also take his words with a grain of salt.
This book is about a family that needs to be quarantined because they have a daughter who came back from serving on a medical mission for patients of a disease called Haag in Liberia. I really liked how the story was full of interesting and silly characters, but at the same time was pretty relatable and realistic. It follows the perspectives of multiple characters, with each chapter written in the context of a single person. I would recommend this book, but the ending was a bit odd, at least for me.
