Business bookshelf: Reads making the rounds

▪ “5 Choices: The Path to Extraordinary Productivity” – The time management experts at FranklinCovey share techniques for avoiding distractions and paying attention to our most important tasks in our daily lives. “5 Choices” is time management redefined: it increases the productivity of individuals, teams, and organizations and empowers people to make more selective, high-impact choices about where to invest valuable time, attention, and energy.

▪ “Significance . . . In Simple Moments” – Petz is a speaker at corporate and association events. He draws on his diverse experience as a corporate executive, social experimenter, event emcee and comedy magician to speak on personal performance, impact and the customer experience. On his blog, the author calls it an “easy to read book for all ages...that will help you identify and appreciate the simple moments in life, that are truly the most significant.”

▪ “Think Like a Freak” – The authors take readers inside their thought process to encourage thinking a bit more productively, more creatively, more rationally — to think, that is, like a freak. Levitt and Dubner offer a blueprint for an entirely new way to solve problems, from minor lifehacks to major global reforms. 800-CEO-READ,
