The world is under quarantine during this Covid-19 crisis and as business is also moving towards downward spiral, we often hear news which is not only heartbreaking but dreadful too.
But as the saying goes “There is always a silver lining during the dark clouds” so I assume that this period too shall go and we will be back with more vigour, zeal and enthusiasm.
However in this present time not only it is difficult to stay at home but it is equally tough to focus on work (especially guys working from home).
But hey isn’t there an opportunity in every adversity? I am one of them who sees challenge as a chance to improve myself. So I would suggest, guys, let’s take this situation as an opportunity to improve on those things which you always thought to do.
What to do ??
While someone may have thought to improve health and start exercise, someone would have thought to improve communication skill, others might have thought to enroll for some course,etc. So there are lot of things to do and that too within the confinement of our homes.
I would say whatever your goal of improvement is, pursue and accomplish it. However I would suggest that during this times, reading books would be ideal thing to do. Not only it helps us to pass the time but it improves the concentration and vocabulary.
So which are the top 5 motivational books?
Read those books/genre which you feel like reading. It could be romance, thriller, suspense, horror, etc. The idea here is that books are indeed our best friends.
However I would suggest these 5 Motivational books to everybody in these times which are very useful for self improvement and motivation.
