The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande

This product was recommended by Tatiana Gavrilina from DDI Development

Why is it worth reading? It provides you with an easy-to-use tool that you can use to get your affairs in order. It’s about checklists. Lists of tasks to be performed are useful in the context of any task, from simple to very complex. Three industries are outlined in the book as examples – medical, building and aviation – for readers’ convenience. It is much more useful to perceive information that concerns specific business areas and specific tasks, don’t you agree? Why are checklists useful? According to the author, checklist allows you to structure your knowledge and prioritize tasks. Until you write down the tasks, they will be unclear. Until the task is unclear, it is unachieved. The checklist allows you to see not only the tasks that are necessary to be performed, but also their correlation and sequence. Checklists also improve teamwork because all team members see a clear scope of tasks and can distribute them without guesswork. I think the book The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right reminds us of what is important in business – structuring and applying what we are working on. Order in your head leads to order in your business.

This product was recommended by Karl Armstrong from EpicWin App

In this book, Nathan Williams transforms the intricate system of business automation (particularly marketing automation) into an understandable concept. Using comprehensive frameworks, checklists, flow charts and formulas, it will guide you to understand the importance of sales funnels and automation in your business. However, what made me really hooked reading it was Nathan William’s smart quotations empowering his readers in a contagious manner. For example: NOT “Get Rich Quick” or “Make Money Without Doing Work” But, it’s MUCH faster than randomly figuring it out through years of trial and error. Not only that it is relevant and relatable. His words were remarkable enough to inspire other readers and entrepreneurs. Which I believe is the goal of every book or writing context. This might be one of the unpopular ones. Yet, its readers rated it as 4.29 out of 5 in Goodreads so it’s highly recommended and worth the time.
