It seems like the first of the year I read a lot of motivational, self-help, and similar genres. Most of the time, I’m pretty disappointed. The Big Leap came highly recommended and I thought it delivered a little bit more than the usual trite patter. While the author has a whole lot of takeaways, my biggest one was about discarding activities that don’t really make me happy in order to focus on those that do. He has catchy descriptive names like zone of incompetence, zone of competence, zone of excellence, and zone of genius.
The book has motivated me to make some changes – some already in place – and while not life-changing like it’s been for some, I’ve been inspired to make some additional changes.
