Book - ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever

Fall in love with simplicity and productivity, stop beeing a workaholic. Here are three takeaways from this great book by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson.

Since I broke my left wrist I had a lot time to read. One of the books I spent my time with was Rework by Jason Fried (@jasonfried) and David Heinemeier Hansson (@dhh). In this article I am going to talk about the three main takeaways I got from this book.

The Takeaways

Ignore the real world

When you are starting a new project or pitch a new idea, you might get a lot of pushback from other people and their opinions. Don't let them fool you!

Planning is guessing

This one is awesome! No matter how hard you try, you cant tell the future and you never know when the circumstances change. Set your self a realistic goal and go for what you can actually do in the next two weeks to reach your goal.

Workaholism

In this chapter they make two good points that I just want to mention and let you think about it.

Workaholics try to fix problems by throwing sheer hours at them.

Workaholics try to make up for intelectual laziness with brute force.
