this book may be short but it drives home the point on when faced with a difficult decision if you should stay the course or if you should give up and focus on bigger better tasks.
This is one of those books that I will recommend to family, friends and colleagues. It changed my way of prioritizing tasks and projects, I could almost hear and feel my brain gears as I was listening to it!
Seth's reading is nothing spectacular, but it is engaging and friendly.
While I enjoyed the book it felt far more like a motivational speech than a helpful book. You can summarize the book with, "quit doing so many things which you're mediocre at and persevere at the thing you're best at." I agree with that sentiment, but the hard question is discerning what you should quit and what you should persevere through. In a book this short, it gives little practical advice on how to do this.
So it motivates you but doesn't equip you.
This book challenges some basic assumptions about quitting things and gives a helpful framework for deciding whether to press on our quit. I found it challenging and thought provoking. I highly recommend it.
I'm stunned that audible recommended this book. Truly painfully bad.laughably trite. And even at only 90 minutes, a complete waste of time. Unless you don't realize by now that hard work is key to success, in which case you're an idiot and doomed to failure.
While reading the book, i used the techque to decide wether quite my project or not. Really useful, especially the list of questions that author suggest us to ask ourself when quiting.
I really struggled to finish this audio book, at first. Some of it sounded long and rambling, but the last 20 minutes... it clicked. Recommend it for that last 20-30 minutes.
I love this small book. Nice guide about quitting. It is good to know if the time is now and if it is to good idea to quit project, company, idea etc.
