The right book has the power to inspire, teach you something new or change your perspective.
Ask Susan Peppercorn: During her 12 years as a career coach, she’s been seeking guidance on some nonfiction books. “I absolutely love reading,” she told CNBC Make It. “But there were three titles that really changed my life.”
If reading more books is one of your New Year’s resolutions, consider adding Peppercorn’s top recommendations to your list:
“The Long Term Game: How to Be a Long Term Thinker in a Short Term World”
by Dolly Clark
The “Long Game” challenges traditional notions of career success and offers a new path: one defined not by quarterly goals or annual promotions, but by practicing patience and developing meaningful relationships with colleagues to become a “long-term thinker” and other strategies.
“Clark’s book is the antidote to a world that requires short-term thinking and instant gratification,” Peppercorn said. “It provides tools to not only stop and think, but to look to the future.”
She adds that if you’re unsure of your next career direction, or feel disconnected from your current job, it’s a good read because it’s “full of useful frameworks” to help you reshape your present and future career plan.
“Infinite: How to Ignore Everyone, Forge Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life”
Laura Gasner Otin
What’s the secret to living your best life? In “Infinite,” Gassner Otting teaches readers a master class on how to better align their dreams and values with their work.
“This book is not your typical career book – Laura is a breaker!” Pepper said. Gassner Otting isn’t just focusing on defining what brings you purpose or happiness, but what she calls your “harmony”: “what” you do every day at work or at home versus when you feel your best The “who” depth is consistent.
“This harmony between our ‘what’ and ‘who’ is often fleeting because we’re not actively building a life that matches it,” explains Peppercorn. “‘Infinity’ is a roadmap for finding out your spirituality and aligning with it.”
