Given it’s a new financial year for those of us living in Australia, most businesses will have a new set of goals and projects for the year ahead.
I thought I’ll start the “year” by recommending a book which sits on my desk, and one that I refer to quite often. “Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming the Obstacles Between Vision and Reality” by Scott Belsky is a book full of tips on how to take an idea and turn it into something real.
We all have ideas, but most of us struggle when it comes to execution. Scott provides practical ways to ensure these ideas don’t just die off and the techniques are easy to follow.
Personally, I always treat my professional and personal initiatives as small projects and Scott advocates a similar approach for everything we do. If anything, it’s a good read. Hopefully it will also be a guide and help you accomplish a few more things in the next 12 months.
