I am usually skeptical about how-to books giving advice on how to live your life right, according to a person who never heard of you, but there are exceptions. Scott Belsky’s book titled Making Ideas Happen teaches you exactly what it says on the cover, and some advice is worth considering.
Divided in three parts, the book provides tips on managing your workflow, community and helping your team to do those things with you (and for you).
Depending on your field of practice, as well as personal strengths and weaknesses, you may find some chapters more relevant than others. For instance, you may enjoy learning to manage your to-do list or that people are divide into three groups – dreamers, doers and incrementalists – and should collaborate accordingly, or how to coordinate your team based on Disney’s three-room principle.
No matter what, the book is written in a call-for-action tone and is likely to inspire you to dust-off few ideas and finally make them happen.
