Close to finish what you are currently reading? Take a look at a few books that—in some way or another—changed my life.
Over the last years, I have been lucky enough to find a series of books that helped me getting introduced to organization methods and learning how to work on my own projects in a consistent way. (A project could be any life-goal you set for yourself to do.)

Hope you found this useful. I strongly believe that, even when books tell us things that are damn simple and obvious, advice from people who learned the hard way, after years of experience, is extremely valuable. No matter how basic their recommendations are, they are useless if we don’t make an effort for them to be present in our daily lives.
We all know "the right thing to do," but do we actually do it?
