We’re over half way through 2018. Are you meeting your personal and professional goals? Maybe you are, but at a cost.

It’s important to take care of yourself while ascending those peaks in your career. Today, I’m sharing tools that will help you balance a healthy mind and body with the professional success you’re seeking (or may have already begun to enjoy!).

This summer, I urge you to take time out of your day, your week, your month to read and learn. As you’ll see below, the most successful people in the world can’t seem to put books down. They are hungry for knowledge and are wise enough to recognize the importance of slowing down and turning pages.

During my summer downtime, I’ll be reading Calypso by David Sedaris for some much-needed belly laughs and re-reading David Allen’s Getting Things Done and Brene Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfection to gear up for the rest of the year. Will you join me? I’d love to hear your thoughts and takeaways. If you decide to read something different, reply to this email, and let me know. I want to add it to my list!

Start Your Ascent™,

Reading Habits Of The Successful
It’s well known that the most successful people in the world read. And read a lot. "That's how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it." - Warren Buffett
