Back in August, Ben Casnocha (entrepreneur, business blogger, and author of My Startup Life ) and I had a very interesting conversation about business books, self-education, and business mental models.
Ben just launched a cool new side project called Think Different TV , and invited me to have a follow-up discussion in a different format: online video. In this video, we discuss…
- Personal development books like Personal Development for Smart People , Loving What Is , and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
- Ambition and the difference between being motivated by power/status and being motivated by service/craftsmanship.
- Effective non-fiction reading techniques.
- The importance of mental models from non-business subjects like psychology and the physical sciences.
