I loved so many pages of this brief New York Times best seller Rework. This brilliant book is a must read for every small business owner or thought leader running their practice.
Full of practical ideas it is a no-nonsense, no fluff summary of leading thinking all combined in one book.
One of my favorite sections of the book says “If you’re inspired on a Friday, swear off the weekend and dive into the project. When you’re high on inspiration, you can get two weeks of work done in twenty-four hours. Inspiration is a time machine in that way.’
The authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier, founders of 37signals.com (you might know them as the inventors of Basecamp – their project management software) go on to say, ‘Inspiration is a magical thing, a productivity multiplier, a motivator’.
I believe super-productivity is achieved when the project you are working on is truly aligned with your values, you are so engaged in it that time disappears and you are leveraging your expertise in a way that feels easy – you are in flow.
As thought leaders we need to constantly looking for ways to share our expertise that is not only relevant, but thorough and elegant. When you are able to share your expertise in a unique way (like the authors of Rework) the world takes notice. Do you have expertise you want to commercialize? If so, let’s chat more about that.
What have you read lately? Did you read it saying ‘hmm that was nice’ or did you read it with a context of being able to teach it to someone?
Thought leaders read a book with a question, ‘now what do I think about that”?
