  • I’m getting I to Getting Things Done and Miracle Morning now. Weird that those were the first two. Lots of great selections here.

    • Great point! The Miracle Morning is the book that got me into the self improvement world. I think its the whole idea of dedicating a little time each day (usually in the morning before the rush) to read, excerise and write that brought me to read all the books on this list and then write about them today.
