A Closer Look at Maximize Your Potential

Review

Maximize Your Potential is an authentic, powerful guide to making the most of your innate talents. When 'follow your passion' just doesn't cut it, this book gets to the heart of how to make your long term career goals a reality.” —Tina Roth Eisenberg, SwissMiss.com

“A no-nonsense, experience-tested, life-approved cookbook for creative intelligence, exploring everything from harnessing the power of habit to cultivating meaningful relationships that enrich your work to overcoming the fear of failure.” —Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

“This isn’t for everyone—certainly not those who choose feeling helpless over trying to make something work. But if you’re looking to understand creativity through science and psychology with well-documented examples from ancient and modern history, Maximize Your Potential could be your literary jam.” —Kiran Umapathy, Holiday Matinee

Maximize Your Potential is full of wisdom for helping you take control of your career and navigate the waters yourself.” —Shane Parrish, Farnam Street

After buying this book, I wasted little time in getting through it. I love the strategies put forth by the writers in the book. This is not a "principles and theory on how to grow potential as a creative type" kind of book. This is a real "how-to" book. The level of detail is just right, such that you can take some of the strategies listed in the book and start implementing them in your own unique way.

When reading the book, I'd recommend reading it with one eye keeping a lookout for stuff that you can try immediately, and stuff that you might want to try in the future. I'd also look at it as a "basis manual" - it's got specific strategies indeed, but as creative types, we can iterate and experiment using those strategies as the foundation.

I won't spoil the content by listing out specific examples from the book. But I'd definitely recommend getting it, and reading it!

"The better you is your believable possible" and "the better you will never lead you astray", well said by Jack Cheng, a writer, designer and entrepreneur and directly quoted from the last section of "Maximize" called the 'final reflection'.

This book is a must read, period. The contributors to this anthology do a great job of giving advice and coaching, they have all walked the walk and now are quite clearly demonstrating 'talking the talk'.

I highlighted or tagged or noted 107 different entries during this short read. It is well set up, clearly articulated and very fun, I look forward to recruiting many if not all contributors on my radio talk show to share the love and knowledge in a contained podcasted version of their ideals.

I will also take those highlighted, tagged and noted sections and reread and use in my own pursuits, good coaching and great advice is priceless.

"The better you will never lead you astray. So follow the trail", again Jack Cheng in the close. Time to step up, time to become accountable, and time to lead. Follow even one of the contributors tips and you cannot go wrong.

Peace

This book is a quick read that will help you unleash your creative potential in the current workforce. It is written by many different authors regarding their perspectives of success and what it takes to get there. It really gets to think about how you should view your current career path and what you need to do expand and improve upon it. It is a recommended read.

I just finished this book and feel so energized about my career. If you are in the creative field, this book is ma must read to help avoid common bad habits and help you elevate your overall game to a new level through sage advice. I was seriously grappling with some professional issues but this book made me realize that the things I was grappling with are actually commonplace amongst creatives. This book also gives you sound strategies to overcome the obstacles.

The format, short essays from people at the forefront of their fields make it easy to read and also believe since all the viewpoints gel yet come from different sources. This makes it easy for me to believe the book as a whole and readily take in and embrace its advice.

Read this book. If you're a creative, read it three times.

Short essays with helpful and thought-provoking advice. Some of it wasn't new but enough of it was either new or made me think about things from a different perspective, that I have already gone back to it a couple of times and expect it will be a reference when I want to make changes. I liked the design of the book as well.

Once again an awesome incite from 21 leading creative minds. I would recommend this book for anyone looking to develop talents and craft and how to step outside your comfort zone! Furthermore if you found yourself looking for books to maximize your potential, go, go now and order the other two books from 99U and Scott Belsky!

Instead of waxing eloquent on theory, it zeroes in on stuff that you can try out and get done. It walks the talk. One of the most practical productivity books in the market. The other one is their own Managing Day to day book. Two gems!

Every chapter of this book is written by a different author. Together they cover different topics in a coherent way and they are easy to understand and ready to be implemented. Well done !
