A better, faster, easier way to succeed in business
Build an Inspiring Book List with Harvee Pene (Partner & Business Advisor at Inspire CA) as he undertakes his 2016 Challenge: Read (implement & review) a Book a Week.
Straight up, people around me would say I’m a pretty impatient man. So this is my kind of book – and yours too if you haven’t already given up reading.
No chapter is any longer than 3 pages.
You don’t have to read in order.
Every idea is typically a flip on what you have been taught.
For example –
ASAP is poison
UNDERDO the competition
Meetings are toxic
Fire the workaholics / Emulate drug dealers
Pick a fight
Planning is guessing
Inspiration is perishable
A great quick read.
My biggest takeaway – Stop throwing time at problems Harvee! You’re smarter than that!
I’ve worked in environments where ‘chucking all-nighters’ was not only permitted but some team members would use it as a badge of honour.
I’m guilty of doing a second shift, from 8 pm – 11pm. That’s weeknights.
And I’d do a sneaky 3 or 4 hour stint on sat and / or sun to ‘get a head start on the week’.
It’s stupid. There’s family, personal or social priorities that are being sacrificed by these quick 3 hour sessions.
Reminds me of Tim Ferriss in the 4 Hour Work Week when we said “doing something unimportant well, doesn’t make it important’.
Time to get more effective and be ‘ok’ with leaving for the day with a To Do list. There’ll always be something to do…
Have a good week ahead! Let’s make it great!
