    I’ll Speak for Free If You Write a Review

    The Results of My First OKRs (Running)

    Why I Changed the Title of My New Book

    #WorkoutThe original title of my new book was Management 3.0 Workout. It was the result of a long and challenging process in which I learned that readers of my newsletter liked the Management 3.0 brand and also the workout metaphor that I used in many of my articles and chapters.

    So, why did I change it to #Workout for the Amazon Kindle edition?

    The Plague of Methods and Frameworks

On the other hand, income for book writers seems to be declining steadily. This will only get worse now that Amazon has started offering subscriptions to read unlimited numbers of e-books, thereby moving in the same direction as Netflix (for movies) and Spotify (for music), further reducing the income for authors along the way.
