‘The Path of a Doer’, from The Do Book Co is their pocket do-ing guide, chock full of inspirational nuggets to help you to get meaningful stuff done.
'...helping you to achieve more. To help you understand the ebb and flow of making something happen.'
It's an ideal bookshelf partner to the 37 Signals tome 'Rework', in fact.
They offer a free pdf sample which includes timeless advice like;
TELL THE WORLD WHY YOU ARE DOING IT (even if they don’t get it, tell them anyway).
At a mere 3.50GBP the full book has got to be worth a look.
The brainchild of ex-Howies fella David Hieatt and illustrator Andy Smith, a portion of the proceeds are going towards the further development of their other project - the Do lectures, a TED-esque forum for people who do things to share their story and experience.
'The one thing the Doers of the world Do, apart from Do amazing things, is to inspire the rest of us to go and Do amazing things.'
And any book that credits Dick Dastardly as an inspiration gets my vote.
