It's time for you can't just stop bigask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietlystubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens after encountering hundreds of hiachieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers. I've discovered thatmany times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as theactions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and everyday to reach your goal and now, with today's question, what is my favorite book? This questionis incredibly hard for me because I read a lot of books. I read anywherefrom thirty to fifty books a year and so going back over time. You knowhundreds and hundreds of books that I've read. So it's really hard for meto say like this is my favorite book and as I'm preparing for this questiontoday,...

I currently I'm scrolling through mygood reads: Feed and if you're a good reads user, you canfind me over on good reads: Neil Christenson, of course, with the k overit good reads, and you can see what I like to read and what I'm reading. But the one thing that jumps out to meis I'm scrolling through this list of books that I've given five stars to is that they were all the right bookfor me at that time. I'm just thinking as I as I'm looking at this I'm seeingsome of them on this list that I probably wouldn't give five stars. If Iwere to read it today, they were the right book at the rightmoment now. Some of these are classics that I might read over and over again, but you know they're all these differentcategories. So it's really hard to pick one book and say this is my favoritebook. I'm not sure how I could do that. Imean some of them jump to the jump out... me as I go through the list, classic ones for business like theultimate sales letter by Dan Kennedy. You wouldn't be listening to thispodcast. If it wasn't for that book, I can trace a lot of things that havehappened in my life. Back to that book, a lot of the decisions I've made aroundbusiness. I can trace back to that book. There are books in here about you, knowjust pure fiction story books like the time traveler's life that one jumps out,that that would probably still be a favorite or a gentleman in Moscow.These are books that I really enjoyed for different reasons, and so I don'tknow what do we do with this now, even if we could pick a favorite book? Whatis this? What do we do with this information? I think for me when I'm thinking of as I scroll through thislist of my top rated books that I've read is how can I find more books like this?How can I you know what else is out...

...there? That's similar to my favoritebooks that I could that I could read and get something outof you know. Is there? Is there a certain author that's appearing on thislist for me over and over again like for me, Neil Gaman is probably onthis list multiple times with different books. Dan Kennedy is probably on this listmultiple times with different books and Richard Richard Cotch is probably onthis book list Multiple Times with different business books. If youhaven't read him amazing, like simplify, was anextremely good book about just simplifying business and ifyou've listened to this podcast, you know I'm a fan of simplifying. Sothat's a good one from him. Also, he had a book about that related business to science, which wasextremely interesting. The natural laws of business reallyinteresting book, but anyway I digress.

You know. Is there a certain person whojumps out here over and over again, then? Maybe I should be exploring moreof their books, or is there just a topic that jumps out to me over andover again that maybe I should be looking at that. I haven't looked at ina while, so anyway, I'm not sure what you dowith this question today and I love to hear what your favorite book or booksare. You can find me over at over oninstagram and can't just stop and on over there and tell me about yourfavorite book. See You Tomorrow.
