Welcome to episode, or chapter 2 of Rob’s Best Business Books.
Now, if you have stumbled across this review then welcome! Every week, we are currently running through a list of our favourite, most recommended business books that we feel bring a lot of value and inspiration.
These books can and will be anything from sales books, marketing guides, self-help books, autobiograpys and much more; simply, any book that we feel will benefit your business or career will be in this list.
It is important to note that these books are in no order at all (No popularity contests here).
Last week, we reviewed The Marketing Blueprint by Jules Marcoux, and this week we are on to Managing Oneself by Peter Drucker.
Now, I remember buying this book vividly; we all remember the internet entrepreneur/guru Tai Lopez right? Well back during my early entrepreneurial days, I used to digest a lot of Tai’s content and at the time he recommended Managing Oneself and in fact was at the top of his reading list.
I went ahead and purchased a copy and straight away understood why it came so heavily recommended.
Peter Drucker is regarded as the godfather of modern management offering penetrating insights into business that still resonate today. But Drucker also offers deep wisdom on how to manage our personal lives and how to become more effective leaders.
“In these two classic articles from Harvard Business Review, Drucker reveals the keys to becoming your own chief executive officer as well as a better leader of others. “Managing Oneself” identifies the probing questions you need to ask to gain the insights essential for taking charge of your career, while “What Makes an Effective Executive” outlines the key behaviors you must adopt in order to lead. Together, they chart a powerful course to help you carve out your place in the world.” – Taken from Google Books
For me, I found that it switched me on to thinking differently about my life, how I was managing it, and how I was managing me. I was able to put the ideas and theories of this book into my personal life and business life and it truly allowed me to grow and evolve my life.
What is even better is how short and sweet the book is. It isn’t wordy, and not long-winded. I reckon this is a book you can smash out in just one sitting and will be one you will be encouraged to read again, and again, and again!
