I’ve always been fond of reading non-fiction books. In fact, I’ve read many.
Though I go to the library once a week to borrow books, I spend 2000-3000 rs. purchasing books in the beginning of every month. It is only because I read the books carefully and deeply if I put money on them.
Often, a man does not take care if he gets something for free. He values the things when he pays for it. Paying money is not at all bad as long as you are constantly striving for a better life.
Non-fiction books have worked like a magic in my life. Although spiritual books drew me more towards them, I cannot avoid the role of books written on leadership and productivity in improving my life.
Now there are many books that promise a happier, productive and more successful life. We cannot read all of them. To make your choice easier I’ve listed down the top 5 best titles of all the time to skyrocket your productivity.
You can pick one and start modeling it in your daily routine to see the change in your lifestyle.

Undoubtedly, David Allen books are awakening. I’ve always recommended his books to one who is eager to challenge his life and want to go beyond his abilities.

One of the best lessons I’ve learned from this book is “If you don’t pay attention to what currently has your attention, you will end up paying more attention to it than it deserves.” Simply impressive.
Another productivity hack that I learned from the book is to never write down the little tasks that can be completed in “Two Minutes”. Complete the small jobs immediately to reduce stress and confusion.
The hacks are not limited to two or three but you get a ton of valuable information while reading this book.
Also, the book is highly recommended if you are in need to declutter your mind.
