At Jemully Media, one of our many New Year’s resolutions is to read more. Not just online reading—but actually cracking a good book that may impact our lives and our work. Read on for Jemully’s 2017 reading list comprising books on business, creativity, psychology, and many other topics, as well as a few words to the wise.
On Being Great
What drives greatness? While perhaps not cultivated by a single trait, it’s my belief that the desire to learn and grow is the seed that truly produces it. In business, this growth is facilitated by reading, and thus learning, from peers both within and outside of your industry. Equally important to entrepreneur, both young and seasoned, reading enables individual growth while simultaneously forging both confidence and leadership within the reader.
On Leadership: Leaders are Readers
With a new year comes new resolutions. As you zero in on your objectives, my challenge to you is this: read. If you feel you don’t have the time, I challenge you to make the time. Strive to develop knowledge that improves you, your company and the people around you. Set awesome goals and hustle hard. 2017 is your year- go out there and make it truly great.
