Looking for books to read to help you achieve your goals? This is a brief compilation of all the books I prefer whenever I want to focus on my goals.

I am always looking for motivation to learn more and become better at what I do. And in that journey, I came across quotes from various successful people/business owners which more or less believed in one same thing, Read to learn.

If you want to learn and improve, you have to get into the habit of reading. Textbooks are not always enough. They are actually almost never enough.

The life skills books will help you achieve your goals because they have been written after years of analysis. So these books aren’t just some words these authors have written.

They are something that majority of the people have experienced before the authors came up with the principles mentioned in these books.

Successful becomes the person who never stops learning. No matter what age you are, learning is for everyone. The more you learn, the more you grow.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Dr. Seuss

5. Measure What Matters: How Google, Bono, and the Gates Foundation Rock the World with OKRs by John Doerr


Legendary venture capitalist John Doerr reveals how the goal-setting system of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) has helped tech giants from Intel to Google achieve explosive growth—and how it can help any organization thrive.


Doerr taught Larry Page and Sergey Brin(who literally changed the face of internet) about a proven approach to operating excellence: Objectives and Key Results.

He had first discovered OKRs in the 1970s as an engineer at Intel, where the legendary Andy Grove (“the greatest manager of his or any era”) drove the best-run company Doerr had ever seen. Later, as a venture capitalist, Doerr shared Grove’s brainchild with more than fifty companies. Wherever the process was faithfully practiced, it worked.


In Measure What Matters, Doerr shares a wide range of first-person, behind-the-scenes case studies, with narrators including Bono and Bill Gates, to demonstrate the focus, agility, and explosive growth that OKRs have spurred at so many great organizations.

This book will help the new generation of leaders capture the same magic.

Popular quote from the book:

We must realize—and act on the realization—that if we try to focus on everything, we focus on nothing.

John Doerr
