I’ve written before about Michael Bungay Stanier and his great tips for doing Great Work. (I also interviewed him for this piece.) About a year ago, he gathered over 60 writers and thinkers to contribute to a powerful book called End Malaria: Bold Innovation, Limitless Generosity and the Opportunity to Save a Life.
(Why the strange title? A whopping $20 from each book sold goes toward ending malaria in Africa. You can learn more at EndMalariaDay.com.)
In it, you’ll find short inspiring essays with tips on pursuing your purpose, doing great work and making a positive contribution to the world.
Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite insights from the book on persevering despite self-doubt and becoming more productive — common issues entrepreneurs and many workers, in general, struggle with.
