Food for the Mind

It’s strange how quickly you get used to not commuting - resuming business travel last week really knocked me for six. As life creeps closer to normal, it’s worth reflecting on how we use our time. Do we want to be on the road - or stuck in a train carriage - every day? If we are, are we making the best of it?
One way of using our time better is to read a good book. Fiction can offer us a therapeutic escape from the real world, and if we’re lucky a window into the human condition, but in this week’s blog I wanted to focus on business books.
Hopefully, among my recommendations you’ll find something that can challenge or inspire you for when you walk through the office door or log on for the day. Happy reading.
