Don’t Get Stressed—Get Inspired

happy-holidays-“Sometimes the greatest gift we can offer others (our family, friends, teams and customers) is to invest our time and resources into developing our own abilities.”— Misti Burmeister

While I keep hearing, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year,” I think the marketers have it confused. Summer – when it’s warm – is my favorite time of the year. But I digress … the holidays are here!

This “most wonderful time” is also the most hectic. But before we say goodbye to 2013, take a little time for yourself. Relax, unplug, and get inspired!

Sometimes the greatest gift we can offer others (our family, friends, teams and customers) is to invest our time and resources into developing our own abilities – learning to communicate better, listen with greater impact, lead more effectively, or become exceptional at collaborating.

Another excellent gift is to share the resources that have changed our lives for the better. That’s what I am offering you this holiday season – a list of the very best books (audio and print) that I have ever listened to or read.

As a writer, provoker, and challenger of the status quo, I have had my fair share of self-doubt, uncertainty, and frustration. I have wanted to give up more than once. It was through these exceptional authors that I found my courage again and again.

The list includes a variety of authors, styles, content and stories. Pick the ones that resonate most with your journey. Maybe even pick a few for your employees, boss, colleagues, friends, family, or even your cat. (Did you know that felines like it when you read to them? OK, maybe it’s just mine.)

Books & Recordings That Inspire Personal and Professional Growth

Happy holidays!
