Special guest Nick Gallo joins Tom Fox for a six-part podcast series about books. In this introductory episode, they talk about Nick’s 100 Book Challenge for 2020, where his goal was to read or listen to a selection of 100 books. Nick shares how he curated his reading list, his methods for completing the challenge, and the insights he learned from the experience. One such insight is that learning is like flexing a muscle, and just like the other muscles of the human body, you must stretch it often to keep your mind healthy.
“This was one of the biggest accomplishments of my life,” Nick claims. Part of the motivation to complete the challenge was his desire for his company to be a learning organization, he adds. “If we’re constantly in an improvement mode, there’s a lot of magic to be unlocked.”
In this special series, Tom and Nick share the five books Nick read – here’s what’s coming up:
- Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
- Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini
- The Culture Map by Erin Meyer
- The Fearless Organization by Amy Edmondson
- The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek
