Boring books !

Post date: Aug 23, 2011 8:04:55 AM

I don't like motivational and management books, books which suggest becoming a good listener, think before you act and all sorts of similar fundas. I got suggestions to read two books as part of career coaching for my new assignment. I am reading the first one and it boring!

I feel bad because I am not getting time to read other books which I want. At the same time, I am reading less these days because I feel sleepy when I read something which is not interesting :)

I am not against these books; I agree with most of the things they say. But somehow I find these things either trivial or things which can't be taught or changed. Many traits are part of our personalities and can't be changed by reading a book. If we make ourselves open to change at every stage of our life, We don't need any books because its easy to see what we need to change. All we need is to look around, learn from our activities, listen to feedback from friends/colleagues, and keep changing ourselves. Being flexible is the key.

Oh ! does it sound like another management funda? :)
