Six Books I Wish I Read When I Was 18!

Books are amazing resources because they hold all the knowledge an individual has collected over his/her lifetime and allows you to access that information in a format that can be read in a few months, weeks or days! Decades of experience packaged up neatly for you, the reader, to enjoy and learn from. 

I have a collection of books at home and on Audible, but out of the hundreds of books that I have read, these are the top 6 that I would send back in time to my younger self. 

In no particular order: 

Principles - Ray Dalio

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck – Mark Manson

Everything you have heard about high performance – 10,000 hours, better habits and grit, etc, is not really necessary if you harness this method of action. This book will force you to rethink how to lead a richer, more productive and more satisfying life.
