Read it today, not tomorrow
If it starts feeling complicated, stop and reevaluate. There is a simpler way, find it. Stop listening to those who want to complicate things. Take action quickly on the simple ideas.

I love Larry Winget. The main reason is that he tell the things the simple way. Most people think that complexity follows simplicity. Wrong. Think again. Simplicity follows complexity. You take a complex situation and you simplify it until it becomes perfect. That's work.
Let me start this review by saying that most people hate their job. They are miserable at it. Some people hang themselves because of work. But most have not the guts to find another job. Larry Winget does not tell his readers that things will get better or that they are entitled to happiness. On the contrary. Your results are your god-damned fault. Your bank account is your god-damn fault. You family, your car, you are the result of your own actions. And this book is about taking action.
First, the title of this book is simply sublime. It is the ultimate sophistication. It's called work for a reason. I cannot count the number of times that I've used that sentence to reply to someone complaining about work.
Some of the concepts are really great. Such as.
Become an invaluable person. Be known as the person who gets sh*t done. Stop complaining. Be a true professional in a working environment that is filled with complainers.
I give it 8 out of 10. Superb.
