Soon the final exams will be over and the long-awaited vacation of the students will start. In order to have interesting and useful vacation, we asked the rector of the Yeoju Technical Institute in Tashkent, Professor Janpolat Kudeybergenov, to recommend a list of books to read. The rector shared with us a list of books that help him overcome management challenges, motivate to be productive and inspire to new achievements.
1. No B.s. Time Management for Entrepreneurs: The Ultimate, No Holds Barred, Kick Butt, Take No Prisoners, Guide to Time, Productivity, and Sanity, Dan Kennedy.
It is no secret to anyone that time management plays a huge role in the life of every person. Moreover, a manager especially needs a proper daily routine and practical advices on how to do everything planned in time. The book gives advice on how to get the most out of every day, even for the busiest person. After reading the book, you can learn to really value your time.
2. Economics for the Common Good, Jean Tirole.
The book by the Nobel laureate Jean Tirole explains how the insights of economic science can be applied in completely different aspects of life. Including when dealing with issues that have a very strong impact on our future. We are talking not only about "standard" things, such as financial crises, unemployment, and so on, but also about innovation, global warming, the digital revolution, and much more.
3. Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman.
We often behave irrationally, make mistakes and justify it with emotions or carelessness. The 2002 Nobel laureate in economics, psychologist Daniel Kahneman, in his bestseller, gives another explanation for this irrational behavior - the mistakes of our thinking are contained in it, or rather, in its complex structure. The author identifies two levels of thinking: "System 1" and "System 2". "System 1" reacts to the events we are used to, works quickly, automatically and effortlessly. But if we are faced with something unusual, outside the scope of our daily experience, "System 2" kicks in, working slowly and requiring significant mental effort on our part. The only problem is that many unknown questions are often processed not by the critically thinking "System 2", but by the automatic "System 1", mistaking the unknown event for something familiar. This leads to serious errors in our thinking and behavior, examples of which are discussed in this book.
4. Delivering Happiness, Tony Hsieh.
The story of how the founder of Zappos created a company from scratch which became the best customer service company in the United States. The book vividly, colorfully describes both ups and downs, and how the company overcame all difficulties. This is one of the funniest and most resilient business books - thanks to the author's writing talent, and one of the most impressive and rewarding one - thanks to his entrepreneurial genius.
5. My Life, My Achievements, Henry Ford.
The autobiography of Henry Ford tells the story of the life and major victories of one of the most prominent American entrepreneurs of the 20th century. The introduction of line-and-conveyor production, reduced working hours, minimum wages, a five-day working week, and production methods that are now used in many concerns around the world belong to his managerial genius.
