4 Great Reads for Creating Simplicity and Habit Building

December 13th, 2011

2011 was one of my top years for consuming non-fiction writing.  Over the course of the year, I read over 20 non-fiction books.  Topics ranged from personal achievement, leadership, management, writing, to more esoteric topics such as minimalism.

Simplicity & Habit Building

As I looked at the list of books I most enjoyed this past year, I started to notice two distinct themes drawing my attention:

  1. Simplicity
  2. Leveraging habits to create long-term success

Books that most influenced me in 2011

Out of all of the books I read, the following books (in no particular order) have really shaped my thinking:

  • Zen To Done: The Ultimate Simple Productivity System
  •  Rework
  •  The Habit Factor: An Innovative Method to Align Habits with Goals to Achieve Success
  •  18 Minutes : Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done

I’ve always had a passion for keeping my focus clear and simple.  Rework in particular, outlined some great organizational strategies for keeping work and business simple.  Zen to Done offered some great ideas on keeping personal focus simple and straight forward.

From a habit perspective, I’ve really latched on the concept of achieving greater success by focusing on habits vs. goals.  Habits and goals are NOT mutually exclusive.  However, I’ve found by focusing my time and energy on working on the right habits (each day/week), I can achieve my goals faster.  I’m also able to build long term, sustainable success through changing my behavior.  The Habit Factor and 18 Minutes both focused on building successful habits and routines.

Everyone Can Benefit From These Books

These books are great reads for managers and non-managers alike.  I found I can take the concepts learned in these books and apply them personally, as well as through the lens of a manager and coach.

Whether you are trying to build the right habits to be a better manager, or create the right organizational habits to achieve customer success – the concepts apply equally.  The same can be said for creating simplicity.

Most of these books are quick reads and worthy of your time.

Regardless of if you read these books or not.  I do encourage you to read to get new perspectives and ideas.  There is so much information and so little time to consume it!  Happy reading!
