  • How many times have you thought of something crucial to do and then forgotten it completely? That′s why people invented lists. And very useful they are too. If, and only if, they are used effectively. Put thirty things on a list, and it becomes too daunting. Put three things on, and there′s no point in having a list. And so we have refined the art of list writing to allow for about ten or twenty things to do. But in truth, most lists are rubbish. Randomly assembled, they do little to help the author navigate their way through the maze of stuff to do. After all, the only point of a list of things to do, is to get things done. Tick Achieve does just that. It shows you how to get stuff done, with lots of little techniques tried and tested on scores of individuals over 25 years. This includes the cathartic and highly effective process of writing a list of what you are not going to do. The author has trained hundreds of people in the art of getting stuff done. There is no Big Plan as such (contrary to what many other books suggest). It′s all about details, and they can be very easy to implement. Little things can make a massive difference. Once you get the hang of it, life gets easier. In a business context, and personally. You can sleep better and worry less. Concentrate on the things that matter, and leave out the trivia and irrelevant. Learn how to celebrate little bits of progress, look down your list, tick off a job well done, and shout Tick Achieve!

  • BALANCED INTELLIGENCE COMES FROM COMBINING THE VISUAL AND THE VERBAL Many people find it difficult to express ideas and solve problems purely with words. They find it much easier to use diagrams. After the runaway success of The Diagrams Book, Kevin “the diagrams guy” Duncan set himself a new challenge: to try and combine the two. Would it be possible to interweave narrative and visuals to create a helpful guide to sorting stuff out? The Intelligent Work Book does just that. From thinking, doing, working, planning and prioritizing, through to presenting, selling, negotiating, progressing in your career, or just plain fooling around. The result is a practical workbook that anyone can use. INTRODUCTION Seven years ago I noticed that many of my attendees in training were taking notes in a new way – drawing shapes instead of old-fashioned longhand lecture notes. So I wondered how many diagrams there were in my training materials. The answer was 46, so I added 4 more and wrote The Diagrams Book. I had no idea at the time that there was an entire world market in visual thinking. Over time I seem to have become “the diagrams guy.” Versions of the book have now come in from Taiwan, Korea, Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden, China, and Hungary, and there is more to come from Russia, and Thailand. So all over the world, it is clear that many find it hard to express themselves and solve problems purely with words. Diagrams and visuals are superb for organising your thinking in so many ways. So my next challenge was to try and combine the two. Would it be possible to interweave narrative and visuals to create a guide to sorting stuff out? This is my attempt to do just that: The Intelligent Work Book. In my opinion, balanced intelligence comes from combining the power of the visual and the verbal, and the result becomes a practical workbook that anyone can use. From thinking, doing, working, planning and prioritizing, through to presenting, selling, negotiating, progressing in your career, or just plain fooling around. It can be done, so here’s to intelligent work.
