Siddharta by Hermann Hesse gave me a different viewpoint of life, and that point is life has chapters, we grow and evolve but our “souls” are still (timeless) like the river.

I think that every career path begins with an understanding of who you are and what matters to you. In that light I will suggest some self discovery books. And of course some great business books.

Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse most likely had the biggest impact of me. It is the story of a young priest who goes into the world in order to find wisdom. He becomes a beggar, a merchant, a father, a student of the Buddha. Several times, he leaves his current situation in order to keep growing and to get closer to the truth.

That's the book that comes to mind, not so much for the story, but the timing of it. It's probably the only book I've read twice, but it came at a time when I was living in Japan and it created a context that leveled up my mindset spiritually. I think and hope that I carry those changes and behaviors that came with it to present day.

Amazon description

In the novel, Siddhartha, a young man, leaves his family for a contemplative life, then, restless, discards it for one of the flesh. He conceives a son, but bored and sickened by lust and greed, moves on again. Near despair, Siddhartha comes to a river where he hears a unique sound. This sound signals the true beginning of his life -- the beginning of suffering, rejection, peace, and, finally, wisdom.
