Format: Kindle Edition
Jocelyn Glei edited this volume to which she and 21 others contributed their "insights on making things happen," as did Scott Belsky, CEO of Behance, who also wrote the Foreword: "You're a Free Radical, Run with It." This is one of the first volumes in the 99U Box Series published by Amazon. Visit the 99U by Behance website and you will encounter this brief explanation: "For too long, the creative world has focused on idea generation at the expense of idea execution. As the legendary inventor Thomas Edison famously said, 'Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration.' To truly make great ideas a reality, we must act, experiment, fail, adapt, and learn on a daily basis. 99U is Behance's effort to provide this "missing curriculum" for making ideas happen. Through our Webby Award-winning website, popular events, and bestselling books, we share pragmatic, action-oriented insights from leading researchers and visionary creatives. At 99U, we don't want to give you more ideas--we want to empower you to make good on the ones you've got." It was Edison who also said, "Vision without execution is hallucination." Darrell Royal's observation is even more volume to this book: "potential" means "you ain't done it yet."

The brief but insightful essays are divided within four sections: Creating Opportunities, Building Expertise, Cultivating Relationships, and Taking Risks.

Great read with some fantastic points in it that felt like they were directly written for me. Both this and the previous title gave me ideas that you want to put in place.

This was a great book to read in a few 10-15m coffee breaks. It's really bite sized and easy to consume, and even if the content is somewhat common sense and stuff that has been said many times, it is still a great reminder and provides a couple of good nudges to those small things you need to keep reading and reminding yourself of.

Normally I loose interest half way through these type of books as they can become repetitive. I was very surprised, can only describe this book as brilliant. In fact I enjoyed reading every chapter and have started applying some principles to my every day. Thank you Jocelyn K. Glei for a excellent read.

Overall a very interesting book, I definitely like the style and examples used. The Anders Eriksson section for me was the highlight...10,000 hours to become a master

I bought this after having read the first book in the series and have enjoyed this one just as much. Each essay is only two or three pages long so they can be crammed into a busy schedule when you have a couple of minutes downtime. As well as the essays there are also inspirational quotes throughout, and the design and presentation of the book is great too. Recommended.
