Lately i have been indulging myself into lots of reading. Reason being? One i now have ample time on my hands and two i really have to be on a knowledge diet for the near future business plans that i have, you know the ‘if you are not planning then you are planning to fail’ sorta thing.

About two weeks ago i was having small talk with a friend of mine, which later progressed into deep stuff, and she shared with me all about her daily routines. One which really inspired me is that she sets a daily target of reading a chapter or two from one of her three monthly book reads. You should have seen the expression on my face! My mind was having multiple monologues which went on something like ‘..when was the last time you finished a book? Remember the book  you started reading weeks ago , or was it months ago…’  as she explained further how she does it. My competitive juices went shooting to the roof and i decided to put myself up on a monthly book challenge, for a change of course.

I settled on these three :

  • Blue Ocean Strategy : How to create uncontested market space and make the competition irrelevant.
  • Instyle Secrets of Style : A classic on styling
  • The Power of your Mind : Learn how to walk in divine excellence and transform your world through the power of a renewed mind.(a must read!)

I must say i am loving the weather lately as its just perfect for a cup of tea as i read myself away. So far i am done with one book, two more to go. I hereby challenge you to start on at least one, or more if you are as super  ambitious as i am:D I sure would fancy  more suggestions on books that i can add to my shelf so feel free to drop them comments below. Stay blessed!
