Simply Brilliant: The Competitive Advantage of Common Sense by Fergus O'Connell

Life is complicated enough. Yet many people go out of their way to create hoops to jump through, wrestling with tough problems and calling on the latest management fad to find that elusive solution to a problem. But it doesn't have to be that way. The best ideas aren't always complicated. The world is full of smart, experienced, skilled, brilliant people.

Simply Brilliant features a set of seven principles to make the bright better. Principles of common sense that can be adapted for attacking many of the problems that you encounter every day, be it in work or outside. And for this all new revised second edition, the bestselling Simply Brilliant delivers a whole new section on getting things done in the minimum amount of time. So that you can produce outstanding results without having to work all night. Sometimes the smart need the simple to be truly brilliant
