So, to finish the month, here are three book recommendations to keep you motivated to continue your goals for the Year. Each of these books we have personally read & implemented for Business & Personal growth. Our goal-setting is not a one-time thing. It should be a constant review of where you are, where you want to be & how you will get there. As a bookkeeping service, we help businesses review their business & financial goals moving forward throughout the year. If you want to know more about how we can help you achieve your goals this year, we are here to help.
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – by Stephen R Covey
This book is about using principle-centred approaches to solving personal and professional problems. It is about living with fairness, integrity, service, and human dignity.
Although this book has been around for a long time, I have enjoyed reading it many times. Sometimes, we all need to slow down, remember our values, and put them into practice.
This book offers wisdom on many levels. While I mainly read it to gain inspiration for my business, it has also helped me personally. Covey’s views are empowering and foster the belief that dreams are attainable with the willingness to grow, change, and see things differently.
- Goals – How to Get Everything You Want – Faster than you ever thought Possible – by Brian Tracy
This book is based on over 40 years of research. It presents practical, proven strategies for creating and meeting goals that millions have used to achieve extraordinary things.
Brain Tracey explains the seven key elements of goal setting and the 12 steps necessary to set and accomplish goals of any size.
Tracy shows how to do the crucial work of determining one’s strengths, values, and true goals.
Throughout the book, Brian Tracy shows how to do the crucial work of determining one’s strengths, values & true goals.
The biggest takeaway from reading this one was measuring your progress. This is something we forget about when setting goals. We set them but do not review them consistently throughout our journey toward our goals. Having milestones each month to help keep you on track or change what is not working is a great way to keep your progress in motion to achieve the goals you set for your business & personal life.
This book offers an enormous collection of advice on figuring out what you want, along with a clear layout plan for the entire goal-setting process.
