1. “Don’t Go Crazy at Work,” by David Heinemeyer Hanson and Jason Fried

This book very clearly and simply describes the methods of teamwork without unnecessary energy expenditure and “herd feeling”. It was written by the founders of the Basecamp project management system, and it paid special attention to such things as:

When you are often late for work, it means that you need to work on priorities and learn to use time management.

  • The number of cases does not determine your productivity in business.
  • A large number of people in a team is not always good. Sometimes 3 people are better than 4, as it is easier for three to agree and, thus, the team is stronger.
  • If you want to have a good climate in the company, you need to work with the team to decide how to position yourself in the market and how to choose partners.
  • When someone takes away your personal time, it means nothing to them, and it should be important to you and serve as a sign to think.
