What was I thinking?

There are tons of trading books. Topics range from fundamentalist perspective to psychology to "If you want to make $120394810 a year, buy my whiz-bang software" to everything in between. I've got and have read a lot of these books, just like most others have. All that means is that I'm reading and thinking the same way everyone else is. So I look for things outside of trading that may be applicable to trading - both personally and already in play in general.

So here are a few recent and current reads (all are available on Amazon or similar) that have been well worth the price of admission:

The Power of Full Engagement
Talent Is Overrated
The Talent Code
Slaying the Dragon

Thinking, Fast and Slow
More Than You Know
Think Twice
Thinking Strategically

I chose not to go into why each has been important to me because I have no desire to influence someone else's experience. Something life-changing to me could be less than a disposable napkin to someone else. Worse, it could be the opposite. Always remember, the Grail is you.

I am on a constant journey to improve myself - in trading and in life. These and many other resources have had a positive impact on both.

Take care -
