Grant Cardone and ‘The 10X Rule’

By | Book Reviews, Productivity, Uncategorized | No Comments

Looking on good reads it really has mixed reviews. “a life changing book, the type of books that has a powerful, heartfelt,and honest message.” COMPARED TO ‘Take massive action by skipping this book and spending your time on a much better book.’

The 10x rule is a concept which says that whenever you think to achieve something, do 10 times more than you previously thought. just do way more.

honestly, this book could be completely summed up by it’s title: If you put 10x more effort into any project, you will be successful.

A bit cliché, nevertheless, you can apply this leverage to so many areas of your life and in most situations

Will It Fly? (Most of my ideas don’t) from Pat Flynn – Book Review

How to Test Your Next Business Idea So You Don’t Waste Your Time and Money

3 Stars

You might recognise the author, Pat Flynn from his blog and podcast, Smart Passive Income. I have listened to Pat’s podcast for a number of years now and he produces some really great content so I decided to read his book as it was included in my amazon kindle unlimited subscription.

In “Will it fly?” Pat Flynn goes over what it takes to figure out whether a business idea has a chance to “fly” or not. The book is a mix of stories, acronyms, book references, website and lots of actionable steps to do. Really if  you have a business idea and you are wondering if it will work or not then this could be the book for you.

However if you are well read among  business books then this might not be anything new as most other books and blogs cover similar things.

f I have been a and I felt compelled to read this book, even though I have no new business launches coming up in the near future.

He is very clever in the way he presents.

I Finished Finish, from Jon Acuff

By | Book Reviews, Productivity | No Comments

I am a big fan of Jon Acuff, I follow him on Instagram and Facebook and he is always posting hilarious things. One of his most memorable posts was his trip to an ‘exotic animal’ show, where he met all kind of weird and wonderful animals that I wish we had in the UK.

Finishing is a problem I think many people face but few people admit to. I know personally I much more of a starter. I start projects, ideas and books but as soon as the next sparkly one comes along then that’s me gone.

I haven’t finished anywhere near as many proejcts as I set out to do, many just fizzle out.

This book for me covered one key point that I know I fall victim to, perfectionism.

When I set out to do something I was always told to do it to the best of my abilaities. I was brought up that way with the moto ‘how you do anything is how you do everything’

I learned that I do really need to take a step back from being a perfectionist.

It was him and Jefferson bethke that inspited me to set out reading and making a challenge out of it.
