Every year I sent out to outdo what I did last year with what I choose to read.
Because of the velocity of what I choose to do in 2019, I came short of my 20 book goal, but I still made a good dent on my progress and I learned a whole whole lot and was challenged in a number of new and different ways.
Here’s what I read in 2019:
Grit: The Power and Passion of Perseverance. By Angela Duckworth
The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles. By Steven Pressfield
Hope in the Dark: Believing God Is Good When Life Is Not. By Craig Groeschel
Vertical Marriage: The One Secret That Will Change Your Marriage. By Dave Wilson, Ann Wilson, et al.
Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything. By Steven D. Levitt.
Spirit Rising: Tapping into the Power of the Holy Spirit. By Jim Cymbala
Hero Maker. By Dave Ferguson , Warren Bird , et al.
I won’t go into each of these books but I’ll tell you the ones that so captivated me.
Top of the list- Bob Goff’s Everybody Always. Never have I been so inspired, encouraged and challenged at the same time as I have through a Bob Goff book. This one really threw me with the way I look at people as human beings looking for hope and acceptance. Every one of us is all after the same thing — We are constantly looking for a sense of security and acceptance regardless of our background or current state of mind.
What did you read last year? And what was one that really sent you over the top?
