Great Book: Required Reading for Any Startup

06 Aug
Not crazy about the title, but it got ME to pick it up, so it worked. I love the ROWE: Results Only Work Environment. If you were like me, one easily frustrated with being lumped down to the lowest, unproductive common denominator in Corporate America, this book speaks to you. Had corporations adopted this thinking and radioactive formula for success, they would still have you and I and the ideas, productivity and $$$$ to show for it. To the authors: Thanks for writing this book so people don’t think I’m nuts.

why work sucks and how to fix it

No Schedules, No Meetings, No Joke – the simple change that can make your job terrific

In a “Results-Only” company or department, employees can do whatever they want whenever they want, as long as business objectives are achieved. No more pointless meetings, racing to get in at 9:00, or begging for permission to watch your kid play soccer. No more cramming errands into the weekend, or waiting until retirement to take up your hobbies again. You make the decisions about what you do and where you do it, every minute of every day.

This book explores why most workplaces are so dysfunctional, and offers a dramatic new way to stop the toxic behaviors and beliefs (“sludge”) that keep us from reaching our potential. It also shows readers how to start their own Results-Only Work Environment, even on a small scale, and help spread the revolution.
