What’s on TeamGantt’s Reading List?

One of the most interesting conversations that we had recently on the #reading-room Slack channel was about what each of our reading lists were, whether they were books we’re currently reading or books we’re reading. There were many choices, from fiction to spiritual literature and non-fiction. This gave us the opportunity to discuss and share books that we are interested in or would recommend.
We’d share other articles that relate to the work we did (e.g. design, branding, marketing).
Although our day may seem hectic, it’s good that reading continues to be an integral part of the team’s daily routine.
Reading offers many benefits beyond the joy of discovery, imagination, and physical health. It also helps us do the work that we need. Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, and many others have attributed their success to their insatiable habit of reading every day.
Check out our current list to find the best books to read, whether you are looking to add a book to your library or just want to know what we like.
1. John, cofounder of TeamGantt reads most of his reading using the YouVersion app. This is a simple, ad-free Bible that allows him to take God’s word with him wherever he goes.
2. Brandon, the creative director, loves Dan Millman’sWay to Peaceful Warriors. It tells Millman’s story about learning from his unexpected mentor, “Socrates,” whom he met at an all-night gasoline station. His list also includes The Tender Barby J. R. Moehringer, andMoneyball. The Art of Winning an Injust Game by Michael Lewis.

3. Nathan’s reading list clearly shows his desire to improve his skills as a designer and co-founder at TeamGantt.

Elle Luna’s The Crossroads of Should and Must will give you the inspiration and down-to-earth support you need to pursue your passion and do the work that you love.
