May 2011 Book Reviews
I like the authors’ take on the planning phase:
“Don’t get stalled by overthinking, overplanning, and overbrainstorming. Resist the temptation to always have a big plan before taking the next step.”
“Studies suggest that risk aversion (both in people’s lives and within organizations) stems from the fear of failure. Fear of failure, or fear of losing the status quo, fosters inaction. In other words, fear is the enemy of change and innovation.”
I’ve learned you can’t worry so much about predicting every problem that will arise. I sense this sentiment stops more progress that we know.
Social media is just that, social. No “corporate-speak;” just an individual putting themselves out there to engage with others openly and honestly.
This book gives a great outline for using social media devises.
