I realized I had two more Epic "professional development fund" books left to read this year, so randomly picked this one (good thing; as the other one is a sequel!).  Lots of good resources in here. Yeah, I know I should be fully purposeful and put all the recommended steps into action in order to see any main benefit, and I'm probably not going to, but I still got several small tidbits of really useful advice.

Often times, I'm so afraid of failure on a project that I just hem and haw until all the design is fully perfected... and then things go wrong anyway. If I want to make a difference, I just need to create and move forward.

Another big topic they talked about was Unnecessary Creating. Spend some time working on projects you really enjoy, not because you have to but because you want to. They're not really 'unnecessary' since they stimulate your creativity and energize you for the work you are required to do.
