Managing Oneself is succinct and packed with useful advice. My favorite insight is from chapter 4 which illustrates the differences between readers and listeners. Knowing whether you are a reader or a listener is a key to performing at your best. It also helps you interact with others by identifying if they are readers or listeners. It can be read in under an hour and I encourage you to buy a copy and read it for yourself.

I was fortunate to attend the Dave Ramsey Smart Conference in November 2019 and hear Ken Coleman speak in person. Ken's session was encouraging and inspired me to post this combination of notes from his talk and the book.
A good friend gave me a copy of this book. The insights on developing and maintaining a proper balance between work and family are excellent.
