“Timothy Ferris’ The 4 Hour Work Week is one of my favourites. Whilst challenging in some of its concepts, it completely shook up my thinking about time, discipline and focus. Its ‘nuts-and-bolts’ approach that outlines strategies and then practical application are great for thinking about how you spend your time. My favourite quote in it is: “What are you inventing to avoid the important”. It is stuck to my laptop to remind me of the difference between ‘busy’ and ‘productive’ work, and to always pursue the latter!”
Ongoing learning is fundamentally essential – not only for challenging your thinking, learning new tools, and helping create new ideas – it also provides some essential time outside the day-to-day activity of your business where your focus can be ‘on’ your business, rather than ‘in’ it, and identify where you can stretch possibilities.”
