Every so often, you reach this point in your life where you're looking for that nudge in some direction. I've been hitting a few walls with some things I've been thinking about/working on, and this short book was a perfect distraction during a power outage this evening.

While this book may not tell you anything new, the way it synthesizes the need to just up and do what needs to be done to get things done - doing the work. It maps out the basics, validates the same issues we all generally have regarding roadblocks and self-doubt, and then just provides a quick and easy direction out toward the success of completion.

Seth Godin and the Domino Project have really done a good job providing business/self-help books for people who really need them but don't need the schlock that normally gets published in that area. Between this and Poke the Box, I'm quickly finding these to be indispensable in terms of motivational direction.
