There is so much good stuff in this book it's hard to pick a place to start.
If you are at a place where your ideas are not getting completed, then this book will give you some great tips to addressing that issue.
The book is a collection of themes and each one is written by a different author.
One of the things I was hoping to get out of this book is understanding how to get the most out of the time I have for my projects that are outside my weekly, scheduled work.
Understanding the importance of regularly visiting your project, even for a few minutes daily, allows one to maintain a familiarity with the project. I was making the mistake of allocating 2 days a week to the project and nothing in between. What this caused was a loss of momentum and built in confusion when those 2 days were intercepted by outside events, leaving 14 days or even more before revisiting the project.
Letting go of perfectionism was a good chapter for me too. Yes I want my project to be the best it can be but it also needs to be able to breath with at least a first draft.
When you see a chapter entitled "Finding Focus in a distracted world" how could one not be drawn to reading and consuming the advice?
I believe I found insight in every chapter. Its all really good and delivers on the promise of getting ones current ideas completed before concerning oneself with even more ideas.
