Portable Standing Desk by Furinno. I use this at the office and at home. It’s sold as a computer tray for bed, but in fact it’s the world’s greatest standing desk solution. Using one of these will help you enjoy better health and a longer career as an entrepreneur. You can get one here.
Amazon Kindle. The small wifi version is all you really need. It’s been shown that people read dramatically more books after getting one. I find new opportunities, new insights, and the wisdom of others through books. You can get it here.
Ergonomic Wrist Pad. When I use my desktop computer with a separate keyboard, I lay this under my wrists. I think it works; after years in front of computer, I haven’t developed any carpal tunnel! You can get it here.
The Lean Startup by Eric Ries. This, along with Four Steps To The Epiphany, will give you a great education on lean development. You’ll see how a software company struggles to find product-market fit before truly scaling.
Four Steps To The Epiphany by Steven G Blank. This is tough to get through because it’s a text book, but it’s a vital read for anyone interested in lean development.
The Carrot Principle by Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton. If you’re managing people, this book is a how-to guide for getting more out of them and creating a culture that people want to be part of.
Multipliers by Liz Wiseman. A good companion to The Carrot Principle, Wiseman details the many ways managers can improve themselves and, in the process, their employees. Some employers make their employees smarter, while others can make them dumber. Use this book to become the former.
