I’ve just finished reading ReWork.
I cannot shout out enough how AWESOME this book is!
It debunked a lot of myths; Challenged how I’ve been doing things and showed me not only better but FANTASTIC.
Below is a snippet of the book. I hope you’ll read it.
From ReWork by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson:
Inspiration is perishable.
We all have ideas. Ideas are immortal. They last forever.
What doesn’t last forever is inspiration. Inspiration is like fresh fruit or milk: It has an expiration date.
If you want to do something, you’ve got to do it now. You can’t put it on a shelf and wait two months to get around to it. You can’t just say you’ll do it later. Later you won’t be pumped up about it anymore.
If you’re inspired on a Friday, swear off the weekend and dive into the project.
When you’re high on inspiration, you can get two weeks of work done in twenty-four hours. Inspiration is a time machine that way.
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 right back and put it to work.
