This idea generation is not a bad thing, but it can be wasteful. After all if you're thinking about the next possible grand leap for your business, you're not thinking about the here and now which might be just as productive. What is needed is a way to spring clean your mind and focus on the activities that are going to make a tangible difference.
Although the focus that readers will infer from this book is one of economics and of business, the concepts provided will work in any area of life where indecision is rife. The important thing is getting into the mindset of making a worthwhile decision that will help you.
The value in this book is its interactive nature. There are sheets that have to be filled in that will hopefully disgorge a plan of action, or in comparison, a certainty that your idea was never going to work. This book is more of a workbook than a typical business book. This is to Bev James's credit. The whole focus on the book is to energise the reader into doing the stuff that is worth doing, and ditching the stuff that will only distract you.
Do it or Ditch it, is a call to arms for the post-recession world. There are many things that you can do, but the important thing is to find that thing that you know you can do. Only this will enable us all to be successful and to benefit from our decisions.
With its red, black and white branding, this is a book that wants to be noticed. There is no danger of ignoring its content as well. Bev James has written a book to clear the cobwebs out of your brain, to allow you to concentrate on the things that you are actually going to get around to do
Evaluating The Concept
When you think about launching your business idea, how confident are you that the idea is commercially viable? Are you feeling ready to drive ahead or anxious about the thought of what you have taken on> Your feelings signpost your true level of belief and help you to assess what you want or need to make your ultimate decision to Do it! or Ditch It!.....On balance are you in a 'Do It' frame of mind? Or is that critical voice inside your head suggesting you should 'Ditch it' and look more closely at the path you have chosen? Only those projects that we feel passionate about are likely to ultimately succeed.
So that's the 'touchy feely' part if you like but it's followed by a comprehensive check list of sound and sensible advice. If you're thinking of starting a business I'd recommend that you read this book first. Bev has been there and done it and you can learn a lot.
Should you be someone who is looking to learn a lot more about yourself as a manager or leader because you feel you've grown stale/ stuck in a rut/never really had time to analyse where your strategies or business ideas are going wrong, this is definitely the book for you. Not everyone has the start-up personal finance to attend expensive pre-management courses,and this book in my opinion , is the perfect business handbook to read until someone feels comfortable with the level of managerial expertise they've achieved. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Do it! Don't Ditch it!
Bev James's book tells you how to decide what is important for moving your business forward, and what is just wasting your time. The book is aimed at people just starting a business, or building an existing one.
Bev James looks at what it is that holds people back in business and life, often it's their own fears and preconceptions that are the problem. Do it! Or Ditch it tells you how to weigh up the choices facing you, and ditch the ones that are wasting your time.
The book is full of practical steps to improve your decision-making and communication skills. It is easy to read and entertaining.
Bev James is a successful entrepreneur who has built and run businesses in a number of sectors, including coaching, training, recruitment, sales and health and fitness.
From reading her book, it is clear that Bev James is an extremely motivated individual, and happy to pass on the knowledge she has gained over her 30-year career. I've read a lot of business books, and this is one of the better ones. The book doesn't tell you what to do, instead it gives you the tools to allow you to decide what to do.
Clear, practical advice and inspiration.
