What to read in 2018?--Reading List

Our reading list to start the New Year

Whether you are a busy parent, a student or someone enjoying the fruits of their labour in retirement, one thing we can all benefit from is perpetual learning. In the spirit of learning and development, we wrote this post for you, our loyal readership from all walks of life.

We thought that we would end this year by sharing a few books we read or re-read in 2017, that were beneficial to our staff and their families.

The books on our list should be available at your local library or for purchase. We are in no way associated with any of these books, but we enjoyed them and thought you or your loved ones might benefit from them as well.

My Legal Crunch presents our 2018 reading list

1.  The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People- by Stephen Covey. This is a classic book, that sits on our book shelves, and most of us have read this book more than once for good reason. The principles in this book can be applied to both your business and personal lives. If you have read this one before, we challenge you to read it again. A second read of this book, reveals wisdom previously overlooked or forgotten. This book is a timeless classic, waiting to be discovered or re-discovered.


2.  The Creators Code-by Amy Wilkinson. This book is based off the author’s research, interviewing entrepreneurs from some of the world’s most successful businesses. She focuses on six essential skills that she believes all creators have in business. If you are a small business owner or looking to create a start-up, this one might be for you.


3.  Relentless, from good, to great, to unstoppable- by Tim S. Grover- This book analyses the legendary Michael Jordan, his work ethic, the game of basketball and his fierce competitiveness. You will not have to be a basketball fan to appreciate this book. This book presents an opportunity to learn the mindset of a champion, in success and in failure.


4.  Start with Why- How great leaders inspire everyone to take action—by Simon Sinek. This book was particularly useful in displaying the power of understanding ‘Why’, in business and in personal decisions for both problems and solutions. Do not let our simplistic explanation turn you off, this book has some deeper concepts that are better understood by reading the book in full. Here is something to think about, what do Nike, Apple and Redbull all have in common? Read the book and the answer will become clear.


5.  David and Goliath, Underdogs Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants- by Malcom Gladwell. This book challenges conventional thinking, which is what we are all about at My Legal Crunch. In business and in helping our clients, we love to see the gaps, to challenge assumptions and to respond to the market needs, taking an interest in what our clients really care about. The opening of this book focuses on the well-known story of David and Goliath, and challenges the conventional thinking of an ‘underdog’. Who really had the advantage, was it David or was it Goliath? We are reminded that things are not always as they seem, and we take that lesson to heart, applying it to our law practice and to our personal lives. We respect differences, we think differently and we embrace strategic thinking.
