There is certainly no shortage of books to read on careers, which can sometimes make it challenging to know where to start – whether you are seeking to advance within your current profession, transition to something new, or you are trying to find your calling. That is why we were intrigued by The Muse’s choice of books, particularly because the following list includes several that are not necessarily what would traditionally be considered “career” books.
Below is their list, along with a link to the article.
1. Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives, by Randi Zuckerberg.
2. Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World, by Cal Newport.
3. Power Questions: Build Relationships, Win New Business, and Influence Others, by Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas.
4. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, by Marie Kondo.
5. Covert Persuasion: Psychological Tactics and Tricks to Win the Game, by Kevin Hogan and James Speakman.
6. The Compass of Zen, by Seung Sahn.
7. Primed to Perform: How to Build the Highest Performing Cultures Through the Science of Total Motivation, by Neel Doshi and Lindsay McGregor.
