Life Hack: Don’t go to college, you don’t need it.

What you do need is education, there’s no denying that.  We all do.  I’m a lifetime student.  As a kid who went $55k in the hole for an education that was suppose to “help me get ahead” I offer this perspective. Don’t.

The most valuable education I’ve gained didn’t come from the pieces of paper collecting dust on a shelf from some “in the business of education” institution.  It was the 4 years I spent in therapy that I found to be the most valuable in my career and my personal life.

I’m not better than someone else for having read these books and used them, I’m just better than the person I was yesterday.  They are listed in no particular order.  This is by no means, the list of all the books I’ve read and found value in, just the ones that come to mind at the moment.
