Yeah, so it hasn’t exactly been a weekly reading list over Christmas. I was visiting the inlaws for part of the holidays and not able to tear myself away from the games of Monopoly and Scotland Yard, or the rerun of A Christmas Carol to tell you what I was reading. So here’s what I’ve been reading…
- No Excuses by Brian Tracy. It’s a good book about building self discipline so you can succeed in business and life. It’s part of the regular reading I try to do on the topic of willpower. Like all of Tracy’s books, there are no shocking revelations that you will have never read before. But that’s not why you read books like this. Rather, you read books like this to pull your scattered mind back to the path you should be on — to remind yourself of what you’re doing, why you’re doing it, and how to keep going.
- Canadian Real Estate Wealth magazine. This is THE magazine for Canadian real estate investors. I’m an avid reader and I recently attended the conference they held here. This most recent issue covers the investing climate in each province in Canada, plus has some other good articles. If you’re a Canadian real estate investor, get this magazine!
- Some random western by Louis L’Amour. Haha. Yes I read it and I’m admitting it here… although I can’t remember the title. I needed to read something light while visiting the inlaws and I found this book on a shelf in their basement. Some mindless entertainment before drifting off to sleep each night. :)
- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I’ve started reading this classic book because, for some strange reason, I’ve never read it before. Not sure why I’ve never read it before (in fact, I thought I had read it but as I flipped through the book, I realized that I hadn’t). It’s a must-read, even if it is a bit dated. I’m going to blog about it a bit more in the future.
