Rework Revisited

 

We reviewed the business book, Rework last year and felt it may be of interest to share our personal take on it some months later, having put a number of its lessons into practice.

In truth, this book is a little bit like having your own personal business mentor/guru. It’s as if the authors know what you have been thinking and understand the questions you have always wanted to ask but didn’t want to commit to saying out loud.

Rework challenges established methods of operating with carefully thought through, proven methods of thinking and working in new ways.   In straightforward language and an accessible tone of voice, this book enables you to place yourself into the scenario and believe that you too can deliver at this level.

“Keep it simple, stupid”. That’s the mantra these authors live and breathe through every facet of their business and personal lives. It sounds straightforward enough but it is challenging when working in increasingly complex environments.

The book covers the unappealing, tough and rarely spoken about challenges encountered when running a business, addressing ‘what happens when things go wrong’.  Rework doesn’t shirk its mission, giving direct and sometimes hard to swallow advice – but it resonated every time for us.

We’ll continue to read and re-read this quite brilliant book – as every time we come across a new thought provoking sound bite that hits us hard, it gets us to ReWork our mindsets.
