Rework Your Business Thinking

May 4, 2011 // Filed under Uncategorized

Thomas Alva Edison said, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”  Rework, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson’s new book, supplies 271 pages of sheer inspiration to get you motivated about work and your career dreams. And the good news is that this is a very quick and easy book to read.  Rework is filled with bold illustrations and short, punchy topics of one or two pages each, such as “Long Lists Don’t Get Done” and “Start at the Epicenter.” After reading it, you might just feel the “can do” spirit to lift yourself out of your work or business rut. The last page does admonish you, however, that “Inspiration is Perishable.”  As the authors note, “Inspiration is a magical thing, a productivity multiplier, a motivator, But it won’t wait for you. Inspiration is a now thing. If it grabs you, grab it right back and put it to work.”
