The promise of this book is powerful. Who wouldn’t want to get more done in 12 weeks than others get done in 12 months? As an entrepreneur and a leader of my team, that subheading is almost intoxicating. Based on the title alone, I purchased the book.
I read it in two sittings and I really liked it. And while I liked reading the book, I’m probably writing this recommendation too soon, because I haven’t implemented the recommendations yet.
In some ways, there isn’t much new in this book – most of the ideas I have heard before, most of the research I have read, and some of the concepts I teach myself. But the book is exceptionally well written – easy to read and put together in an effective manner. What makes it powerful is putting the ideas together into a system.
And as you might hope for a book promising to bring you extra speed in execution, it isn’t too long (less than 200 pages in a small format).
The pieces of this book that I already use, I know work. I believe when you discipline yourself (or your team) to apply the system more completely you will clearly get more done than ever before.
As I and my team do apply it (copies for my team have been ordered), I’ll tell you more – and I look forward to doing that.
While I’m sure the authors would prefer I didn’t say this – even if you don’t decide to apply this in total, you will find more than one idea that can make a difference in your productivity and results, even if you don’t apply it in total.
