I have begin to read some books from the Personnal MBA.
First was getting things done. An interesting method of every day work and life management.
You can manage this method with Google notepad !
The best thing I have learned so far is to clean my mind of "open loop" and note everything.
I have read the book "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion" which describe six common things in people psychologie. Like PersonnalMBA says :
Knowing these natural psychological tendencies will help you in two ways: (1) you'll become more persuasive, and (2) you'll be able to identify when these tendencies are present, protecting you from being misled in the future.
I am now reading "how to win friends & influence people" and my next books will be :
The unwritten laws of business, the design of every day things and Making things happen.
I am an addict :)
