I recently read the book Making Ideas Happen. If you are an idea person, or know one who needs help putting their plans into action, please read this.
The book makes the point that ideas are worthless. “Try to sell one”. Ideas that have been put into action are valuable.
Learning to be biased toward action is what this book by Scott Belsky, founder and CEO of Behance, wants you to become.
The author offers a simple plan he calls the “Action Method“. He believes that every project in your life can be broken down into one of three categories. And he also believes that everything you do is a project.
The categories are
- Action Steps
- Backburner Items
Rather than give you my interpretation of his thoughts, follow this link to a website that explains the Action Method as well as many other productivity enhancers.
