A list of recommended reading and references. I will add things along the way.
Drive by Daniel Pink
Autonomy, mastery and purpose are the things that drive me. And I am not the only one. Drive, by Daniel Pink, might be the book that I have cited the most in my professional life. It is a description of motivation for knowledge work. If you do not have time to read it, at least watch this video. https://youtu.be/u6XAPnuFjJc
Getting Naked: A Business Fable About Shedding The Three Fears That Sabotage Client Loyalty by Patrick Lencioni
Debugging your brain by Casey Watts
A concise and no nonsense book with tools for getting your brain to serve you better.
I reference it as further reading in the post on building your relationship with yourself.
