For the Achiever

Happy Holidays from Lemonly

Hey there, Achiever!

Season’s greetings from all of us here in Lemonland. We know lots of folks are working from home or away from the office this year, so our holiday gift is totally digital-friendly.

As our way of saying thanks for collaborating with us in 2021, we’ve put together some hand-picked, Lemonhead-loved recommendations to help inspire and entertain you as we head into the new year.

Our picks below will speak to your inner risk-taker, problem solver, and productivity powerhouse.

📚 Good Reads

Whether we’re immersing ourselves in audiobooks or toting around trusty paperbacks, the Lemonheads are readers. Here are two of our team’s top-rated reading recommendations for Achievers.

Atomic Habits by James Clear

If you like frameworks that’ll help you think differently about how you live and work, you’ll love James Clear’s guide to building good habits (and breaking bad ones). We’re such big fans of this one that we had a company-wide book club all about it. Grab your copy for a high-impact new year.

Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily and Amelia Nagoski

Chances are we all experience burnout sooner or later, especially hard-working Achievers. In their book, Emily and Amelia Nagoski present practical strategies for understanding and unlocking the body’s biological stress cycle. Their combination of research, empathy, and sage advice will help you navigate stress before it turns into full-blown burnout.

🎧 Must-Listens

We’re big fans of storytelling and information presented in an engaging way, so it’s no surprise our listening queues are packed with podcasts. Here are a few we recommend — selected just for the Achiever in us all.

Dare to Lead

Brené Brown’s Spotify-exclusive leadership podcast is approachable, insightful, and actionable, featuring interviews with great leadership minds of all kinds — all with Brené’s characteristic vulnerability and trusted voice. You’ll leave with new frameworks to think about and tactics to put into action no matter where you fall on the org chart.
