Read: Make Ideas Happen

Heading south of the border to San Pancho, Mexico, I've had the opportunity to catch up on some much needed reading. This recent release from Scott Belsky follows the Seth Godin-esque mantra of shipping ideas. The value of the 99% perspiration vs the 1% inspiration. Process and lessons learned from creative leaders on how to convert ideas into product.. As Kobe would say.. execute. What sets this book a part from some of the older productivity reads is it's focus on real modern-day issues, and useful nuggets from guys like Chris Anderson (Wired), Ji Lee (Google) and John Maeda.

Great learnings for producers leading teams, and supported by a useful product and an app helping you in the day to day of separating the noise of notes, from action items and those ideas that need to sit on the backburner.
