While goals are likely the first thing you think of when you start a new year, I always find myself looking at new books to read. I always have a list of books that I need to read. Some of them have been on there for quite awhile, yet others have only recently been added.
I read a lot. So I love to start out the new year with looking at recommendations and what books are on my list to read. This gives me a great start to the year and some ideas of what my goals should be for the next 3 months (I want to do goal planning every 12 weeks).
If you are looking for a couple of book recommendations, consider adding these to your list to get your year started off on the right foot.
