Have you ever picked up a book that left an indelible imprint on your mind?🤔 A book that nudged you to see the world in a different light and helped you grow as a person?

📖 How to take Smart Notes by Sönke Ahrens 🌱 The art of smart note-taking and a big influence for the structure of my Second Brain.

📖 Radical Candor by Kim Scott 🌱 Great leadership requires radical candor; Care Personally and Challenge Directly.

📖 Simple Rules by Donals Sull and Kathleen m. Eisenhardt 🌱 Simplicity can outperform complexity.

📖 Your network is your net worth by Porter Gale and Guy Kawasaki 🌱 I discovered the Give-Give-Get mindset and the importance of creating Win-Win-Win situations.
