This is one of the few books I have borrowed from the library and then gone to a bookstore to purchase a copy for my bookshelf. I love this book for its mind-expanding qualities - it is inspirational and provides food for the imagination. Written in an easy style, Richard Koch is both edifying and entertaining. I especially like what he has to say about time. In particular: * Time is not the enemy. If we make good use of only 20% of our time, there is no shortage of it. * Time gone is not time lost. * We should aim to collaborate with time: `Insight and value are likely to come from placing ourselves in a comfortable, relaxed and collaborative position towards time'. [p163] * Action drives out thought. It is because we have so much time we squander it. * Be eccentric and unconventional with time - you can not conform to everyone's wishes. * Under no circumstances give everyone a fair share of your time ... ... You may need to read the book to see how he came to some of these conclusions! Whenever I find myself busy beyond belief it is good to be reminded that most of what I am doing is of little importance. However - when faced with one of those moments (or decisions) that are much more valuable than all the rest - it is helpful to be reminded, and encouraged, to `do something radical and stop tinkering around the edges'. I bought this book so I could refer to it whenever I feel I have lost focus and need some sage advice. This book does not contain all the answers, and the theory only works to a point, but nonetheless it is a terrific 'thought jump starter' and I highly recommend it.
