jason fried – rework
…. “We kept saying, ‘If this stuff is so important, and we spend 50 percent-plus of our time on it, why do we forget about it later?”
i quote Rework daily. (fyi to the people who can’t hear me)
i read Daniel Coyle’s Talent Code.
[which @kessampanthar recommended to me like a year ago. he recommended that and Carol Dweck’s Mindset. the 2 books i put off till last on my then current list. silly me.]so – my take…
Coyle’s deep practice bleeds of Fried’s rework.it was like – that’s how you do it.
the mash-up for me:
before reading talent code – rework was my play book for making days matter. like i would focus on orchestrating better time slots. (i’m sure a disservice to rework’s intent.)
after reading talent code – rework is the bi-product (as i’m assuming was it’s intent) of my inner emotion (@nabilharfoush) and ignition.so to me – right now – rework is part of the detox (critique requested) most of us need.
- think about what you really need to say
- write it in place
- figure remove what’s non-essential
- pare it down
- make sure you’re getting to the point without using terms that require additional explanation
- rewrite – without looking
- compare with the original – see if you’re missing anything important
- wrap it up.

How many employees would stay to work Fridays?
I don’t know.
Because you weren’t there!
We don’t track things in that way. I don’t look at that. I don’t want to encourage that kind of work. I want to encourage quality work.

the problem we are trying to solve is not going away – how to make people for effective/efficient togetherthat chaos is man-made so can be man-prevented too.. (i don’t think businesses have to be chaotic where everyone is sweating… happens often when the goal is to get big fast).. i like to think of business as a long walk rather than a sprinthttps://thedistance.com/ – magazine highlighting businesses that have been around for 25 yrs or more – celebrating longevity(paraphrase): rather than equity – money you might get in the future, we think giving current experiences, ie: paid vacations, guitar lessons, … prove to be more valuable to humans/relationships. it’s something in the now. even as opposed to giving money – giving the vacation or lessons is something the person might not do themselves if they were given the money.
