PCMA: Five Summer Reading Recommendations For Planners

Whether you’re waiting at the gate for your flight to your next site visit, relaxing by a pool on vacation or taking a break at home from your work duties, this summer is the time to bury your nose in a book. Here’s a look at five reading recommendations that will challenge your beliefs, make you laugh and help you rethink your approach to the world.

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Meeting planners are constantly putting more on their plates. However, doing more doesn’t necessarily mean doing more well. Greg McKeown’s book is a guide for today’s busy business professionals in search of figuring out what responsibilities should be on their to-do lists. This isn’t simply about managing time; it’s about helping readers figure out how to do less and how to do it better.

“Greg McKeown’s excellent new book is a much-needed antidote to the stress, burnout and compulsion to “do everything” that infects us all,” Arianna Huffington says. “It is an essential read for anyone who wants to regain control of their health, well-being and happiness.”

The Misfit Economy: Lessons in Creativity from Pirates, Hackers, Gangsters and Other Informal Entrepreneurs

Everyone in the meetings industry is focused on innovation. By now, though, you’ve probably heard all the lessons and insights from Richard Branson, Steve Jobs and other well-known leaders and thinkers. This book offers an interesting glimpse of the genius of some people who will most likely never deliver keynote speeches such as inner-city gang members and slum dwellers in Lagos. The Financial Times writes, “For those wanting a fresh perspective on business practices or working lives, this is a snappy introduction to a new way of thinking.”
