This is the most helpful business book I’ve read, ever. That’s a pretty big statement considering what a business-book junkie I am. I just finished reading it for a second time.
I highly recommend this book to anyone willing to re-think the way they approach their work.
Here are a few of my (many) highlights from the book:
“Writing a plan makes you feel in control of things you can’t actually control.”
“Workaholics aren’t heroes. They don’t save the day, they just use it up. The real hero is already home because she figured out a faster way to get things done.”
“If no one’s upset by what you’re saying, you’re probably not pushing hard enough . (And you’re probably boring too.)”
“Policies are organizational scar tissue. They are codified overreactions to situations that are unlikely to happen again.”
“Momentum fuels motivation.”
“The way you build momentum is by getting something done and then moving on to the next thing.”
