Often, we get readers asking us questions like, “what are the best books to read” “what are the best business books”, “what are the best self-help books” or “which book can help me to achieve my goals”?
Well, the answer is never a straightforward one, i.e. is no single best book that will answer all your answers. Indeed, there are many great books that can give you a headstart, but true success and breakthroughs come from constant learning, application, and integration of your insights into various areas of your life. For instance, a good book could give you great ideas on how to start a business, and highlight great tips and potential pitfalls to avoid. However, your success will hinge on your willingness to put them to practice, and your ability to concurrently learn about product development & testing, leadership and management, sales & marketing, culture and organizational development, finance, etc.
In fact, in “To Sell is Human“, Daniel Pink shares that “elasticity” has become an essential skill for success in today’s ever-changing world. This involves:
• Doing jobs and applying skills that go beyond artificial boundaries like marketing, design, or accounting; and
• Developing skills that can be repurposed or applied in new ways to match industry changes.
In The Fifth Discipline, Senge also explains the power of systems thinking in building learning organizations and true competitive advantage.
