GREAT BY CHOICE

by James C. Collins and Morten T. Hansen

This one has been my all time favorite book. A quote from this book - “Victory awaits him who has everything in order; luck people call it.

I even got the quote framed and hung it on my office wall.

This book helped me create a list of tenets for my work and life and brought discipline to my thought process. It helped me prioritize my goals and also learn best practices on hiring, managing my team, helping leaders grow and more.
