It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and dreams. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. What is my favorite book? This question is incredibly hard for me because I read a lot of books. I read anywhere from thirty to fifty books a year and so, going back over time, you know hundreds and hundreds of books that I've read. So it's really hard for me to say like this is my favorite book. And as I'm preparing for this question today,...

I currently I'm scrolling through my good reads feed and if you're a good reads user, you can find me over and good reads, Neil Christians and, of course, with the gay over a good reads, and you can see what I like to read and what I'm reading. But the one thing that jumps out to me is I'm scrolling through this list of books that I've given five stars to, is that they were all the right book for me at that time. I'm just thinking as I as I'm looking at this, I'm seeing some of them on this list that I probably wouldn't give five stars if I were to read it today. They were the right book at the right moment. Now, some of these are classics that I might read over and over again, but you know, they're all these different categories, so it's really hard to pick one book and say this is my favorite book. I'm not sure how I could do that. I mean some of them jump to...

...the jump out to me as I go through the list, classic ones for business, like the ultimate sales letter by Dan Kennedy. You wouldn't be listening to this podcast if it wasn't for that book. I can trace a lot of things that have happened in my life back to that book. A lot of the decisions I've made around business I can trace back to that book. There are books in here about, you know, just pure fiction story books, like the time traveler's wife. 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't know what do we do with this now, even if we could pick a favorite book. What is this? What do we do with this information? I think for me, when I'm thinking of as I scroll through this list 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 favorite books that I could that I could read and get something out of? You know, is there? Is there a certain author that's appearing on this list for me over and over again? Like, for me, Neal Gayman is probably on this list multiple times with different books, Dan Kennedy is probably on this list multiple times with different books, and Richard, Richard Catch is probably on this book will list Multiple Times with different business books. If you haven't read him, amazing like simplify was an extremely good book about just simplifying business and if you've listened to this podcast, you know I'm a fan of simplifying. So that's a good one from him. Also, he had a book about that related business to science, which was extremely interesting. The natural...

...laws of business really interesting book, but anyway, I digress. You know, is there a certain person who jumps out here over and over again? Then maybe I should be exploring more of their books, or is there just a topic that jumps out to me over and over again that maybe I should be looking at that I haven't looked at in a while. So, anyway, I'm not sure what you do with this question today and I love to hear what your favorite book or books are. You can find me over at over on Instagram at can't just stop head on over there and tell me about your favorite book. See You tomorrow.
