I extremely need some inspiration and motivation.


Honestly I really liked reading Ryan Singer's book, Shape Up. Made me realise how easy it is to over complicate getting stuff done.

I found 'Zero to One' and 'The Hard Thing about Hard Things' the most educational & motivational, can't wait to get my hands on the new 'What You Do is Who You are' by B.Horowitz šŸ˜»

Since you're here, I'm sure you will enjoy "Product-led Growth" by Wes Bush as much as I do. I read it twice in a row. It's super helpful and actionable. Some of my favorites in 2019: - Lost and founder by Rand Fishkin (Moz's founder) - Start small, stay small by Rob Walling (Drip's founder) - Make by Pieter Levels - Deep work by Cal Newport
