If you’re looking for some ways to be more productive, you’ll enjoy these books:

  • Do More Better: A Practical Guide to Productivity by Tim Challies
    In this book you will learn: common obstacles to productivity, the great purpose behind productivity, 3 essential tools for getting things done, the power of daily and weekly routines and much more, including bonus material on taming your email.
  • The 5AM Miracle: Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast by Jeff Sanders
    This book is a resource guide for high-achievers. It is for anyone who has a wild passion for life and is in search of a structured system that will hone those passions, clarify their big goals, and produce real, amazing results.
  • Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy
    This book will change your life. There just isn’t enough time for everything on our “To Do” list—and there never will be. Successful people don’t try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure they get done.

Three Forces That Shape Character by @MichaelHyatt

This will be my last post for a few weeks (I plan to resume after the Holidays but probably not until early February as I’ll be tied up with planning a big Men’s Conference with Donald Miller and Bob Goff). So, as I close out this year I thought you would be blessed with some thoughts from a recent Leadership Podcast by Michael Hyatt. This episode focuses on the 3 forces that shape character. I’ll mention them here and encourage you to go and check out the complete episode (by the way, if you don’t already follow Michael Hyatt; do yourself a favor and start today — he consistently provides great resources focusing on Intentional Leadership).

There are three forces that shape who we are at the core of our being:

  1. The input we consume.
  2. The relationships we pursue.
  3. The habits we acquire.

Your turn… You can listen to, watch, or read the transcript from this podcast here. What resonates with you from this podcast?
