Have you read any good books lately?
I recently finished a fantastic book by Robin Sharma, called The Everyday Hero Manifesto. It is a lengthier book, but it flows very nicely with very short chapters and incredible content. In the #CJJblog this week, I give you my thoughts and main takeaways on this book. I strongly feel anyone looking to improve their daily life should check it out. Have you read it yet? Let me know what you thought! Enjoy.
