Sorry…I forgot one other lesson. Dare to dream big. His New York Times bestselling books have sold more than 2 million copies. What was that? It was writing a book that positioned him and his company as the authority in real estate in the USA.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Now, Discover Your Strengths The biggest challenge for all of us is discovering what your mission on this planet is. That is often the journey of a lifetime. Or how to find them. Unfortunately, most of us have little sense of our talents and strengths, much less the ability to build our lives around them. Clifton, have created a revolutionary program to help readers identify their talents, build them into strengths, and enjoy consistent, near-perfect performance.

This extends to our personal lives and how we do business. The author Eric Ries provides a scientific approach to creating and managing successful startups in an age when companies need to innovate more than ever.

I found this a great book to challenge my thinking and grow my business. After that page exposure to the mind of a genius, I became a bit of a Steve Jobs fanboy. So finding out more about the person that has redefined our world was tempting. To Steve Jobs, simplicity was a religion. It was also a weapon.

The obsession with simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. What does this book cover?

Think Minimal: Distilling choices to a minimum brings clarity to a company and its customers—as Jobs proved when he replaced over twenty product models with a lineup of four. Think Motion: Keeping project teams in constant motion focuses creative thinking on well-defined goals and minimizes distractions. Think Iconic: Using a simple, powerful image to symbolize the benefit of a product or idea creates a deeper impression in the minds of customers.

Having a lot of great ideas but not doing the work. It also helps answer questions such as: Could you be getting in your way of producing great work? And the observation of nature is central to technological change throughout the ages.

A robotics project at UC Berkeley mimicking cockroaches is just one modern example. Furthermore, understanding human nature is essential to being a good manager. In all his writings, Coelho reinforces that true inspiration comes from a quiet and calm place.

Clearly, this is not possible if we never allow our minds and bodies some time away from emails, texts, and busy work. Finally, the book comes full circle, reminding us that the power to achieve our dreams is within us and was within us from the beginning. Think of it as a variation on the Star Wars theme: 'The Force is within you.

The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu Goldratt "This is a story about a business executive dealing with serious challenges at work and in his personal life. It is a good read as a novel, but more interestingly, it is a great business and leadership book.

Its theme is that, in life and in business, you should constantly ask 'What's the goal? If you establish clear goals and a method of measurement, your action plan is more likely to line up with achieving the goal. The character, Herbie, becomes a metaphor for how to identify constraints and define processes based on these constraints. His book is based on his decades of experience producing music and movies for Elvis, Sinatra, George Clooney, and more. And it's a fun read.

Blue Ocean Strategy by W. Chan Kim "How to leverage, how to differentiate, and how to hedge--this classic business book inspires me on how to compete in the overcrowded optical and eyewear business. In today's fast-changing environment, what used to be your strength and competitiveness can be your biggest obstacle in growth and change.

One must constantly question, learn, and keep an open mind. The Widow Cliquot by Tilar J.

Mazzeo "For anyone interested in true business pioneers, or indeed one of the most successful female entrepreneurs of all time, this biography is a great read.

It recounts the inspiring story of the widow Veuve Cliquot's struggle to grow her fledgling champagne business in the early s following the death of her husband. Set against the backdrop of Napoleonic France, Veuve Cliquot conquered not only the glass ceiling of sexism, but political and financial turmoil to grow Veuve Cliquot into a remarkable empire.

As similar issues resurface in the modern era, her battle is a timely reminder that determination and daring can win the day. A beautifully written account that I couldn't put down. Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas "It was my first real exposure to Western literature and really opened my eyes. I was probably 11 or 12 years old, living in South Korea before we immigrated. Since then, I have reread it many times. The main inspiration for me is the utmost perseverance, planning, and dogged determination required to achieve one's goals despite encountering many hardships and setbacks.

I Love You All the Time by Jessica Elin Hirchman and Jennifer Elin Cole "This is a children's book that I used to read to my daughters when they were three or four years old, and for some reason it has stuck with me even as they enter young adulthood.

The message is simple: Remember those who have unconditionally loved and supported you through thick and thin; find the time, make the time. For me, it's namely my wife and kids. It's so easy to read one more email, take one more call, or work one more hour at the expense of those who have been there for me whether I'm successful or not. My ability to create lasting memories with my family will not be judged by how successful I've been, but by how successful I've helped them be.

That single phase has entered my thoughts many times and is a good reminder of what's ultimately most important.

In this case, he takes a very talented protagonist, Kathryn Petersen, and drops her into a Silicon Valley company in turmoil. Her mission: Take a highly dysfunctional set of executives and turn them into a highly functioning leadership team before the company implodes or she gets fired. I have a particular passion for understanding how to transform a group of individuals into a high-performing team, as a great team does more for a company's results than anything else.

Yet I've also struggled with how to communicate what makes great teams great and how to internalize that message. Lencioni takes a bit of the opposite approach, where he explains what makes a team not so great: absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results. His lessons are simple and inspired, and I've found the book to be a road map for building great teams, drawing on the story countless times in my career. The Power of Broke by Daymond John "[It] is essential reading for every aspiring entrepreneur with a big idea and limited resources.

So many people assume that you need to have money to succeed--that's a false presumption. JR and I are living proof that passion and tenacity are more important than money to realize your goals. The Power of Broke, which I am lucky enough to be featured in, truly provides the tools and information needed to help you realize people of all financial statuses can find success, as long as you work hard and trust in yourself.

Hoffman "This book really resonated with me, because it's almost a mirror image of what we did with the Sparkling Ice brand.

Hoffman dives into how Alan Mulally went into Ford and took a look at the organization as a whole. He shifted the focus to the consumer and recognized the importance of delivering quality products and services. Mulally honored the heritage of the company and used Ford's identity as a strength to reinvigorate a culture.

If you need to enact change in your company without losing its values, this book will be perfect to pull inspiration and tactics from. Other than a small section on technology that I don't fully agree with , the book is a blueprint for how an effective and efficient business should be run. Fifer's teachings are ingrained in nearly all of TransPerfect's business systems, and he has personally come and participated in training conferences with our senior management team.

The book, which focuses on how to bridge the chasms that occur in the transition from a market solely for innovators and early adopters to one that reaches a mainstream audience, proved to be my personal manual for building disruptive companies. For those in management, marketing, and sales at B2B tech companies, this book is a must-read.


First, follow your dreams--don't chase someone else's. Wu Tang could only have happened on Staten Island, just like Godzilla could only have appeared on a remote radioactive island in Japan.

No distractions, no envy. Be like ODB: There's no father to his style. Second, location matters. In an era when everyone chases careers and dollars, the Wu represented Shaolin Staten Island --pride of place and people, and a commitment to draw from, but built on what's strategic around you.
