When reading the book, I'd recommend reading it with one eye keeping a lookout for stuff that you can try immediately, and stuff that you might want to try in the future. I'd also look at it as a "basis manual" - it's got specific strategies indeed, but as creative types, we can iterate and experiment using those strategies as the foundation.
I won't spoil the content by listing out specific examples from the book. But I'd definitely recommend getting it, and reading it!
This book is a must read, period. The contributors to this anthology do a great job of giving advice and coaching, they have all walked the walk and now are quite clearly demonstrating 'talking the talk'.
I highlighted or tagged or noted 107 different entries during this short read. It is well set up, clearly articulated and very fun, I look forward to recruiting many if not all contributors on my radio talk show to share the love and knowledge in a contained podcasted version of their ideals.
I will also take those highlighted, tagged and noted sections and reread and use in my own pursuits, good coaching and great advice is priceless.
"The better you will never lead you astray. So follow the trail", again Jack Cheng in the close. Time to step up, time to become accountable, and time to lead. Follow even one of the contributors tips and you cannot go wrong.
The brief but insightful essays are divided within four sections: Creating Opportunities, Building Expertise, Cultivating Relationships, and Taking Risks. Each section also has a Q&A with a prominent knowledge leader:
o Robert Safian on Rediscovering Your Career, Constantly
o Joshua Foer on Learning to Live Outside Your Comfort Zone
o Sunny Bates on Networking in a Connection Economy
o Tina Seelig on Re-Engineering the Way We Think About Mistakes
These are among the dozens of explanations special interest and value to me, also listed to indicate the scope of the book's coverage. The prefix for each is "How to..."
Cultivate craft before passion, Cal Newport (Pages 27-32)
Make your own luck, Glei (53-58)
Find your own sweet spot, Belsky (63-67)
Focus on getting better, rather then being good, Heidi Grant Halvorson (75-81)
Develop mastery through deliberate practice, Tony Schwartz (85-90)
Note: Schwartz examines the breakthrough research of Anders Ericsson and associates at Florida State University
Reprogram daily habits, Scott Young (105-110)
Build resilient relationships, Michael Bungay Stanier (141-146)
Create a killer collaborative team, David Burkus (161-166)
Lead in a world of co-creation, Mark McGuinness (171-177)
Demystify the fear factor in failure, Michael Schwalbe (187-192)
Lean into uncertainty, Jonathan Fields (215-220)
Make purposeful bets in a random world, Frans Johansson (225-231)
As I hope these subject areas suggest, the shared objective of those who contributed the material provided in this volume is to help each reader understand -- insofar as unleashing and maximizing their potential are concerned -- what works, what doesn't...and why. They are determined to provide each reader with "insights on making ideas happen."
With regard to the term Free Radical, Belsky explains: "Free Radicals want to take their careers into their own hands and put the world to work for them. Free Radicals are resilient, self-reliant, and extremely potent. You'll find them working solo, in small teams, or within large companies. As the world changes [ever-faster and more disruptively], Free Radicals have re-imagined 'work' as we know it. No doubt we have lofty expectations."
For those who aspire to become a Free Radical, here is your manifesto and operations manual.
Once again an awesome incite from 21 leading creative minds. I would recommend this book for anyone looking to develop talents and craft and how to step outside your comfort zone! Furthermore if you found yourself looking for books to maximize your potential, go, go now and order the other two books from 99U and Scott Belsky!
