This from a blog reader…
“I saw the photo essay on Steve Ballmer in the New York Times and one picture with Lisa Brummell. Any idea what that ‘simplicity’ book is on her desk? And do you ever sleep? :)”
I believe the book in question is “Simplicity: The New Competitive Advantage in a World of More, Better, Faster” by Bill Jensen. It’s not my favourite book (I’ve skimmed/read it) but it has a few interesting points. I prefer the books by Linda Breen Pierce, such as Choosing Simplity and even a “12-step” simplicity programme.
And yes, I do… at least a few hours.
