Title: Do More Great Work: Stop the Busywork, and Start the Work That Matters

You work hard. You put in the hours. Yet you feel like you are constantly treading water with "Good Work" that keeps you going but never quite moves you ahead. Or worse, you are mired in "Bad Work"—endless meetings and energy-draining bureaucratic traps.

Do More Great Work gets to the heart of the problem: Even the best performers are spending less than a fraction of their time doing "Great Work"—the kind of innovative work that pushes us forward, stretches our creativity, and truly satisfies us. Michael Bungay Stanier, Canadian Coach of the Year in 2006, is a business consultant who’s found a way to move us away from bad work (and even good work), and toward more time spent doing great work. When you’re up to your eyeballs answering e-mail, returning phone calls, attending meetings and scrambling to get that project done, you can turn to this inspirational, motivating, and at times playful book for invaluable guidance. In fifteen exercises, Do More Great Work shows how you can finally do more of the work that engages and challenges you, that has a real impact, that plays to your strengths—and that matters.

The exercises are "maps"—brilliantly simple visual tools that help you find, start and sustain Great Work, revealing how to:

• Find clues to your own Great Work—they’re all around you
• Locate the sweet spot between what you want to do and what your organization wants you to do
• Generate new ideas and possibilities quickly
• Best manage your overwhelming workload
• Double the likelihood that you’ll do what you want to do

All it takes is ten minutes a day, a pencil and a willingness to change. Do More Great Work will not only help you identify what the Great Work of your life is, it will tell you how to do it.

Title: Great Work Provocations: short sharp shots of inspiration served up daily

Want more from your work? Great Work Provocations provides you with a year's worth of daily less-than-30-seconds-to-read-messages to make you smile, to make you think and to make you act. Questions, metaphors and flat-out challenges are all deployed to make sure that every day is a new day for you when it comes to do more of the stuff that matters ... and less of the other stuff. (from the author) There are only three types of work in your life. There is Bad Work: the mind-numbing, soul-sapping, life-crushing work that grows like weeds. In organizations it is bureaucracy, pointless meetings, email overwhelm ... and anything that makes you think, This is my one and precious life - what am I doing? Then there is Good Work: your job description, and what you spend most of your time doing. And finally there is Great Work: the meaningful work you are hungry for. This is the work that matters, makes a difference and has an impact. It is the work you actually want to tell people about. (Who boasts, I didn't get too far behind on my email today!) ? If you are like most of us, you are struggling just to stay on top of the regular stuff that keeps flowing your way. Bottom line? You want to do more Great Work but you are struggling to get beyond the Bad and the Good. In my book Do More Great Work I offer a systematic way you can find, start and sustain your Great Work. This book is different. Great Work Provocations was designed to wake you up, provoke you and shake you out of the Good Work rut on a daily basis.
