1) Procrastinate on Purpose by Rory Vaden
Procrastinate on Purpose grew out of the Rory Vaden’s quest to see how super-achievers accomplish their work. We have all heard that time is finite, but Vaden insists that is wrong. In fact, he says, everything you have learned about time management is wrong. Of course, we all have the same hours in a day, but super-achievers invest time in tasks today that give them more time tomorrow.
In his book, Rory Vaden brings his high-energy approach and can-do spirit to the most nagging problem in our professional lives: stalled productivity. Millions are overworked, organizationally challenged, or have a motivation issue that’s holding them back. Vaden presents a simple yet powerful paradigm that will set readers free to do their best work—on time and without stress and anxiety.
“A brilliant insight turned into an actionable method. Start now!”— Seth Godin, author of Linchpin
“We all have the same 24 hours in a day to make an impact but what if you could actually create more time? Procrastinate on Purpose shows how the greatest leaders in the world have figured out how to literally multiply their time. This book is a game changer.”— Jon Gordon, bestselling author of The Energy Bus and The Carpenter
2) What More Can I Say by Dianna Booher
The world has changed and you can’t use yesterday’s communication strategies to create tomorrow’s successes. Dianna Booher is the master on this subject and this may very well be called her masterpiece. This book is timely and relevant and it teaches you how to what matters most in communication: build trust and reinforce relationships.
In her book Dianna Booher provides an essential nine-point checklist for success in the art of communication and persuasion—for building solid relationships, and for increasing credibility in the workplace. With lessons from politics, pop culture, business, family life, and current events, the book identifies common reasons that communicators fail to accomplish their goals, along with examples and analyses of messages that succeed and those that fail.
“Dianna Booher has done it again! What More Can I Say is the definitive book on the hows and whys of communicating effectively. I’ve always said leadership is an influence process—and to influence others, you have to know how to get your point across clearly. What more can I say, other than ‘Read this brilliant book!’ –– Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Legendary Service
“Dianna Booher may have accomplished the impossible. By following the tactics revealed in What More Can I Say?, you will communicate in a way that creates a dynamic engagement with others after which all parties walk away satisfied and smiling. Excellent work from one of today’s most important communication experts.” –– Marshall Goldsmith, author or editor of 34 books including the global bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
