Review: Most books touch the surface of what it takes to achieve high aspirational goals, but The Messy Middle by Scott Belsky gives a comprehensive insight into what it really takes to reach them and long-term success, covering the highs and lows of the journey built on seven years' of research. You read in books and the news new venture kickoffs with inspiring missions and the big celebratory achievements giving a sense it's quick and easy to reach them, whether it's funding, IPO, market-leader status, job role...when in reality it's not and instead takes relentless patience, grit and empathy to achieve long-term success which is the focus throughout the book. The book is structured well keeping to around two pages on each subject, where Scott gets right to the point and focuses on modern approaches to help build and optimise your team and improve yourself. "Milestones that are directly correlated with progress are more effective motivators than anything else." "The only 'sustainable competitive advantage' in business is self-awareness." "Don't start to question your gut solely because it is different. Nothing should resonate more loudly than your own intuition. The truly differentiating factors of your project are the ones most likely to be different, misunderstood, or underestimated by everyone else." "Every leader needs to come up for air now and then. By temporarily disconnecting from your journey, you're able to take perspective of all the moving parts." - very relevant as I read this on holiday. A fantastic read which I'd recommend to anyone struggling to progress towards their missions, looking to make sense of their experiences or generally interested in learning from Scott's journey and wisdom.

Review: I will acknowledge that this book covers a part of the startup journey that is not often covered. In this sense the book is a good check list of sort of principles and concepts that are important along the journey. I found that all concepts explained had better and much deeper definitions in other books which to me make this book mostly interesting as an introductory read to the topic

    Description: Thomas Edison famously said that genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration. Every day new solutions, revolutionary cures, and artistic breakthroughs are conceived and squandered by smart people. Along with the gift of creativity come the obstacles to making ideas happen: lack of organisation, lack of accountability and a lack of community support. Scott Belsky has interviewsed hundreds of the most productive creative people and teams in the world, revealing one common trait: a carefully trained capacity for executing ideas. Implementing your ideas is a skill that can be taught, and Belsky distills the core principles in this book. While many of us obsess about discovering great new ideas, Belsky shows why it is better to develop the capacity to make ideas happen - using old-fashioned passion and perspiration. Making Ideas Happen reveals the practical yet counterintuitive techniques of 'serial creatives' - those few who make their visions a reality.
