Title: The Power of Less

Great for : telling you what you probably already knew

I picked this up after MovetoPortugal had read it.  It’s a fairly easy to read book as these types of books go, but I found it slightly simplistic.

It’s much better applied into a work environment, but even then I found the principles difficult to imagine successfully implementing.  The principles make sense, but it’s what you already knew anyway. Don’t check your emails constantly, limit your internet time, focus on a small number of projects only.

The one principle that did stick with me was to concentrate on one thing at a time, one big project.  That way you are far more likely to be successful than if you have more than one on the go.

The book wasn’t all bad and maybe I’ve read too many books of a similar thread to not really learn anything from this.
