Do More Great Work: Stop the Busywork. Start the Work That Matters.

WORKMAN PUBLISHING COMPANY | February 13, 2010 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Do More Great Work: Stop the Busywork. Start the Work That Matters. is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
You work hard. You put in the hours. Yet you feel like you are constantly treading water with "Good Work" that keeps you going but never quite moves you ahead. Or worse, you are mired in "Bad Work"—endless meetings and energy-draining bureaucratic traps.

Do More Great Work gets to the heart of the problem: Even the best performers are spending less than a fraction of their time doing "Great Work"—the kind of innovative work that pushes us forward, stretches our creativity, and truly satisfies us. Michael Bungay Stanier, Canadian Coach of the Year in 2006, is a business consultant who’s found a way to move us away from bad work (and even good work), and toward more time spent doing great work.

When you’re up to your eyeballs answering e-mail, returning phone calls, attending meetings and scrambling to get that project done, you can turn to this inspirational, motivating, and at times playful book for invaluable guidance. In fifteen exercises, Do More Great Work shows how you can finally do more of the work that engages and challenges you, that has a real impact, that plays to your strengths—and that matters.

The exercises are "maps"—brilliantly simple visual tools that help you find, start and sustain Great Work, revealing how to:
  • Find clues to your own Great Work—they’re all around you
  • Locate the sweet spot between what you want to do and what your organization wants you to do
  • Generate new ideas and possibilities quickly
  • Best manage your overwhelming workload
  • Double the likelihood that you’ll do what you want to do
All it takes is ten minutes a day, a pencil and a willingness to change. Do More Great Work will not only help you identify what the Great Work of your life is, it will tell you how to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ignite your passion What Do More Great Work does is help people define the stuff that gets them out of bed and excited to work. It helps you articulate the work that sets you aflame. I am using the book to help me determine my next steps in my career.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I heard about this book, borrowed it from the library, liked it so much that I went to my local Chapters to buy one for myself and one for my business partner! The 'maps' (exercises) in the book are very practical and helpful. I even use some with my coaching clients. This book is not only good for business, but also in personal lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It made a huge difference in my business The human brain can block us from achieving our potential. In simple ways, we can push aside the barriers, work around the impossible brick walls we imagine and walk one step at a time to what we actually do want to be and do with our lives. Great read to get focused and get winning.
