Gary shares some great advice - some obvious in the sense that we should be doing it anyway but that's the entire point of gary's content he wants to motivate everyone to pull their finger out and just do it. I watch his youtube videos and this book was on my list and it did not disappoint.

  • Start with Why

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

I have been searching for my why for 5 or more years, i have read many books articles and yet nothing hit me like ready this.

I discovered the golden circle when exploring my why a few years ago but never looked too much into it.

Whilst reading this book i already began work on the course available via the website and are already have a much clearer idea.

I recommend this book to any business owner whatever stage they are in - learn why you are doing what you are doing, why you started and what your passion is.

A business parable about how to create a start-up that won't trap you when you want to sell it. According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency.

Rather than just say here's a number of things to consider if you want to sell or scale your business, the book is written in a story format with relatable scenarios to make it far more engaging I wanted to keep listening.

The story based around advertising agency was well suited to my own which was also great.

Took me a while to get over the narrators voice as was a little bit irritating in the first chapter when rolling all the last words of sentences but the story allows you to get over that - so plough on.

Great read. Good info and interesting story.

Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life: the ability to master distraction. Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves their attention the most. When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve.

Already implementing changes in my business. Realisation that every team member needs their own shut off time - this book allowed me to realise this. So many habits to change and everyone already knows what has to happen but we've been consumed by distractions and now desire them even when we are trying to focus if something is not as enjoyable as we want it to be. A worthy read for business owners or anyone who sits on social media or the internet for long periods of time.
