Priming

I'm currently reading a book called 'Start Finishing' by Charlie Gilkey. It has content that tries to help those who start on ideas but don't see them through to the finish line. It covers several aspects right from coming up with the right ideas to pursue, all the way to planning and executing on them.

Over the years, I've written a lot about planning and executing on this blog and have tried out several approaches and processes myself.

Hence, I wasn't particularly interested in reading the planning section of the book as the marginal returns I'd have from it was less. However, that doesn't mean that the section doesn't have ideas that I can't learn from. It's just not what I'm looking for right now.

For us to learn anything, what we're looking for right now is very important. Because, our minds essentially stop paying attention to other things.

To have the best from a workshop, a class, a book, an article, an internship, a project, we need to prime ourselves to want the takeaways that these mediums provide.

Otherwise, it will be in one ear and out the other.
