Please read “A Technique for Producing Ideas ” by James Webb Young.
This book, more than any other on writing, shaped the way I come up with ideas. Originally presented to students in 1939 and published in 1965, this book does in 47 pages what other books fail to do in 400.
It’s short, powerful and only costs $6.95 on Amazon. This is a tremendous resource for anyone who wants to create great ideas that turn into great actions. (And that describes everyone working on their FinishYear goals.)
