This month’s book was a refreshing change of pace! Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson really boiled things down to very specific and digestible bits of advice. One of their points was that lots of things get better as they get shorter. Can you relate to this? I CAN! They cut their book in half between next-to-last and final drafts.
Something else that really resonated with me was about being fake. I strive to be as authentic as possible with my clients so that they can be their authentic selves. This includes not being afraid to show my flaws. In Rework, they talk about the Japanese principle of wabi-sabi, which values character and uniqueness over a shiny facade. Amen to that!
Lessons/Major take-aways: Keep it real, talk like I really talk and let my genuine self shine.
