    My Favorite Things: My Favorite Books and Lessons I from them!

    Another episode of My Favorite Things! In this episode, I talked about some of my favorite books that I've read in 2020! However, there are some rules! First off, It can't be books that I read for the podcast, which means, I have to look at it, pick it up, and read it casually. Secondly, the books that I recommend and talk about has to provide some sort of value or lesson when I read them! Those are the rules! Anyway, enjoy the list, and tweet at me @jaltucher and let me know if you like those books or if you have any list suggestions!

Thought Provoking Honest Podcast

James is brilliant, fun to listen to, and he has great guests. He focuses on personal growth and has many useful insights. I have listened to him for years and have watched his personal growth and I have grown by listening to him. Highly recommended!

Helpful interview podcast

I really enjoy James’ podcast. He always reminds me to have a growth mindset and learn something new by talking about his daily rituals and what he gets out of them.

I never get tired of him asking his guests what to someone stuck at a cubicle should do if they want to change career. It’s really interesting to learn from all of his different guests. I would like to hear him talk to Rick Steves in the future.

Recently, I like James’ Favorite Things series. It makes me reflect on things I like.

Brian Keating, please avoid inserting so many puns in your sentences.
