My Fav Books in 2020 (Business & Self-Improvement)

My goal was to read 100 books in 2020. I read 17. Yikes. For reference, I read 32 in 2018 and 42 in 2019, so this was pretty out of the norm for me.

It could have been the global pandemic, focusing on social media, or publishing a book that contributed to my failed 2020 goal. But in reality, it was one thing and one thing only-- I didn’t make reading a priority this year.

It’s tempting to chalk our failed goals up one excuse or another, making us feel better about not following through on what we set out to achieve. Even if those 'excuses' actually did happen, why bother wasting your time? Take responsibility. Figure out the real reason you didn’t achieve it, and here’s the most important part: MOVE ON.

Learn the lesson and set the next goal.

If reading is one of your priorities in 2021, this might help-- here are the 17 books I read arranged from favorite to least favorite. Don’t be deterred by their place on the list, they are all worth reading, as I don’t always recommend every book I read, as you can see in my 2018 and 2019 lists.

“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” – Haruki Murakami

To all of you in school that only read the books your teacher asigns you:

Do you want to pass the test or do you want to excel in life?
